One point, and I really hope this isn't offensive or judgemental in any way, is that places like the Richwood in places like Torbay tend to deal with large, boisterous groups, e.g. hen parties, so I would guess that the pre-ordering of breakfast and the damages cost is partly to cover themselves and make a little easier when dealing with such volumes of guests.
That makes perfect sense.
I can't wait for tonight's and tomorrows eps. Funny how we all love a bit of conflict, don't we? Hee hee....
