Although most hotels have dining rooms, not all of them take dining and great food as seriously as the boutique sector. For these hotels, having a great restaurant is a natural extension of having a great hotel and it is often these restaurants and bars that become favoured hangouts for locals as well as guests. With careful attention paid to the menu and the ingredients, hotel owners know that food is an integral part of any hotel experience and that, in many hotels, it often fails to meet expectations. That's why so many descriptions of boutique hotels include a full review of the food available; it's part of the appeal for guests.
If you want nothing other than peace and relaxation, just ask for the paper and your favourite drink and spend the morning on the terrace just because all these extras are on offer doesn't mean you have to use them it's just nice to know they're there.
