The Sweet Service Award goes to the Wash World Laundrette in Sea Point, and its owner Lessa. I have been using the Laundrette for many years, running in to drop off my laundry, not even writing up the laundry items any more, having so much trust in the staff and its owner. At R100 a bag for my bed linen it is a bargain. Receiving the washed and folded linen back in 24 hours is a further plus.
The Sour Service Award goes to the De Grendel Tasting Room, nominated by Hans-Werner Klein, who wrote: ‘Disappointing visit yesterday. With the high prices for the tastings and for the really excellent wines, it just doesn’t fit to offer a cheese platter that was pre-packaged in plastic foil with 3 cheeses and a few dry biscuits in a plastic wrap – and then for the outrageous price of R150.00 together with bad and unfriendly service! It’s a pity that we won’t be able to enjoy this magnificent view again.’
