Earlier this week I visited this hotel with the view to stay in the future and check out their conferencing facilities for future dates. I also happened to visit the bar and as luck would have it it was " happy hour ". When paying for the drink I was horrified to see that I was charged R17 for a 200ml soda and R17 for a 200ml dry lemon . On quering this the barman asked me to take it up with the manager which I duly did. His response was unsympathetic with a sort of take it or leave it attitude. My suggestion is that if ever you choose to stay in this hotel TAKE YOUR OWN DRINKS because at their prices your bar account might turn out more than the accommodation. My suggestion to the hotel is that they re-name happy hour to " unhappy hour ". Happy hour as the name suggests should be half price !!!!
