On our way to Cape Town we stopped off to go to the ostricht farm and stayed over night at the Queens Hotel.It was like going back into the past (King George stayed here with his wife Queen Elizabeth and daughters Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in the 1940's). A very nice place although the bedroom and bathroom were small. The staff were very nice and the food in the restaurant was good although service was very slow. We were rather annoyed by a very rude Englishman who took a very aggressive way of expressing himself at the delay. What an odious little man, I do hope that the staff realised that he was the exception rather than the norm to the way Brits behave! All in all a very nice (and different) stay.
