Have you ever noticed how providers use the word 'complimentary' here and not 'free'. Seems there is a world of difference in which word you can use. Maybe HIX should offer a 'complimentary' breakfast.

So it seems the free delivery of pizzas my kids ordered last night wasn't free after all.

It depends on whether it were possible to order pizza in which the delivery was not free of charge. :-|

I guess "complimentary bottled water" works fine, as it is possible to obtain a room without complimentary bottled water; moreover, it is also possible to obtain a room which features both complimentary and charged-for bottled water.

Expect HIE to offer breakfast for extra 1 GBP when you book your accommodation.
 
Transform your lounge room (or any indoor space) into your own private movie theatre in just a few seconds.

Our Mini Pocket Projector is small, light and easily transportable. A must have!

I don't know about the UK but I do like that Holiday Inn Exprss offers complimentary breakfast. Room rates in SE Asia are generally quite reasonable.
