La Residence Sweet and Winchester Mansions Sour Service Awards

The Sweet Service Award goes to La Residence in Franschhoek, who made a birthday lunch for my 95 year old father a special day to remember, spoiling the family with Pierre Jourdan Rosé on arrival, a lovely three course meal, excellent service, and a birthday cake, which was a gift from the hotel. 

 

 

The Sour Service Award goes to the Winchester Mansions Hotel.  I popped in for a quick cappuccino, on my way home, sitting outside on the terrace, and had to wait for 15 minutes before a waitress acknowledged my presence, despite a number of guests sitting outside.   I asked for the bill when I received the coffee, but it did not arrive, so I gave the waitress a R20 note to pay, expecting her to return with the change.  She never did – thinking that she had earned a 25 % tip!
