WE GOT FOOD POISONING FROM THE STRAND HOTEL!!!
My colleague and I booked The Strand for our last minute business trip to Capetown. The accomodations were fine - rooms were small, but clean. Nothing special. However, we did get access to the business lounge. We ate breakfast there, and all seemed fine. However, a little later, my colleague began feeling sick, and got sick. We figured it was a fluke, ate nowhere else for the day, and went back to the business lounge later that evening to get some work done. We tried the light snacks - some fruit, bread, a little soup. We went back to our rooms, and a few hours later, we were both sick. It was terrible. All night, running back and forth to the bathroom. We alerted management of the issue, and he seemed not to care at all. His attitude was awful. From there, we went back to the business lounge, checked out the food, and left. We returned later that afternoon, and just as we suspected, IT WAS THE SAME EXACT FOOD!! They had it out all day, no refrigeration or anything. Disgusting. So, thought the price seems right, the hotel is not worth your health. Stay somewhere else and have the piece of mind.
