There are five types of people at a hotel breakfast buffet – which one are you?
Ah, hotel buffets – the literal breakfast of champions.
Whether you prefer the pastries or fry ups, a really good hotel breakfast buffet has something for everyone and more than enough to go around for seconds and thirds should our hearts desire.
And now, according to one poll, they can reveal a little something about our personalities too.
A survey by Hampton by Hilton of 1,500 adults with a keen interest in hotel breakfast buffets found there are five personality types when it comes to approaching their morning meal on holiday.
Nearly half (45%) of those polled said they are the Investigating type who like to circle the buffet multiple times before making their informed choice.
Smugglers make up 30% with their MO being sneaking a snack away for later – with fruit and pastries being the top transportable items to take for the road.
The top five breakfast buffet personality types
A fifth are Stackers, who like to balance everything on one plate to save them having to go up for seconds.
Stackers are not to be confused with Builders, who make up 22% and are newer to the breakfast buffet world. They like to take extra time to construct their perfect plate.
Nesters, who make up 19% of respondents, think of others as well as themselves and will bring back a selection of eats for the whole table to tuck in to.
Hampton by Hilton teamed up with Scarlett Moffatt to deliver these findings. She said: ‘The breakfast buffet is without a doubt one of the best bits of a trip away for me.
‘I’m a little bit of a “Smuggler” and am known to sneak a croissant away with me to enjoy in the room with a cuppa later in the day.
‘That said, I’m also guilty of being a “Stacker” too, piling up delicious smoky bacon and hot waffles is literally my idea of heaven.
‘I think we can all agree that a good night’s sleep followed by a hot brekkie sets us up for the day. Now pass me the pancakes.’
The survey also found that the average time considered to be ideal for a breakfast buffet was just 38 minutes.
That’s impressively speedy given the average adult will fill two plates in one sitting, but 46% think going up multiple times is the whole point of a buffet.
That being said, 22% prefer to take it slower, spending up to an hour enjoying the buffet offerings.
Unfortunately, 23% worry about being judged by fellow guests for always going back for more – let’s not buffet shame, people.
