Belthazar Sweet Service Award and SA Tourism Sour Service Award

The Sweet Service Award  goes to Manager Herman at Belthazar.  On Mother’s Day I was waiting for my son to finish seeing a movie in the Waterfront, and had a cappuccino and a sundae at the restaurant.  When I asked for the bill, the waiter said that it was on the house for Mother’s Day – a sweet surprise!



The Sour Service Award  goes to SA Tourism, for sending out a newsletter to every tourism operator the day after Indaba ended, on 9 May, referring to its “April newsletter” and writing “As we head into May, it’s an exciting time for tourism product in South Africa. INDABA is just a few days away and the Welcome Awards finalists have just been announced” .  What a poor communication example from our country’s tourism marketing body!

The WhaleTales Sweet & Sour Service Awards are presented every Friday on the WhaleTales blog.  Nominations for the Sweet and Sour Service Awards can be sent to Chris von Ulmenstein at   Past winners of the Sweet and Sour Service Awards can be read on the Friday posts of this blog, and in the WhaleTales newsletters on the website.
