Hi Rommel Thank you for your review

I usually book the Maraboon for business trips. It’s always a pleasure booking in and easy having the tavern right next door.

HI we have plenty of silverware and Glassware available on request as we are a full service hotel with 2 partner restaurants .The Bio ware is in all rooms . All you had to do is ask for a wine glass or even a champagne glass if that is what you required.rather than getting upset.
