Why hotel breakfast buffets are brilliant with Sam Thompson from Made in Chelsea

Travel Goals Podcast

Do you love a breakfast buffet feast when you're travelling? In this episode, we’re chatting about why hotel buffets are brilliant with TV personality Sam Thompson. He’s best known for his role on the E4 reality show Made in Chelsea, appearing on our TV screens since 2013. You might have also seen him on Celebs Go Dating and Celebrity Big Brother.

Sam discusses why starting your day with a selection of eggs, fruits, pastries, juices, teas, and coffees in unlimited portions provides the perfect fuel for a long day of sightseeing on your travels and why he goes back up to the buffet multiple times!

Through his television work, Sam has travelled to some incredible places and he’s currently working with on their new campaign to find their first-ever ‘Chief Buffet Officer’, we chat about why hotel breakfasts are awesome, along with what it’s like to travel with a TV crew and what makes a great hotel stay?

If the buffet breakfast is one of your favourite parts of a holiday, then Sam has all the details on the dream job for you!

A 'Chief Buffet Officer' role means you get to stay in hotels around the world for free, and all you need to do is review the breakfast options when you wake up in the morning. How amazing is that?
