Breakfast serving times a little constricted

Guests would like to see a wider serving window for breakfast which is perhaps a little constraining for those choosing to leave early or sleep in. The owners respond by saying that guests who arrive within the serving window are welcome to stay in the dining room as long as they like to enjoy breakfast.
