As a result of the ANC Governments insistence on closing the economy down and having targeted the tourism and related accommodation industries specifically, we are no longer operational.
Having endured and kept ourselves ready to accommodate for many months, eventually the lack of income and potential business has dissapated to the extent that we can no longer finance the business.
We would like to thank all our guests and supporters through the years, especially those that came back on a regular basis. Your backing is greatly appreciated and we will treasure those many hours spent chatting, discussing all subjects and solving the world problems.
Unfortunately last year, we had to retrench our hard working staff, some of whom had been with us for over 15 years. It was a sad day as we bid them farewell, knowing the Government has created a situation where they will battle to obtain a job anywhere in the future. It was at that stage a reflection for us as well, one of the main issues being to sell the Guest House to cover costs.
To the ANC that blame covid and not themselves for closing the Country, we have nothing but contempt. You have done zero to help the situation and have in fact only made it worse through unkept promises and by adding further regulations to already overburdoned business owners. To practice racist distribution of grants and a belief that businesses in financial trouble can incure further debt finance, is just ludicrous. The lack of tax income will be this governments reward, but unfortunately that will just help the Country go further down the hole it has already dug.
To those Government related bodies, organisations, swimming clubs and NGO's that insist on 'proof of closure' and try to bully their way forward not realising that they are part of the problem - good luck to you.
For those of you who believe our small business costs nothing to run. We can only point you to the costs of administration, the costs of government regulation, the costs of governments additional taxes like paying double rates, staff and related costs, the costs of time and the hours spent preparing and ensuring guests are properly waited upon and cared for, the costs of ensuring fresh new and super clean laundry and rooms, and the costs of buying and keeping fresh provisions for the rooms and breakfasts, as examples.
For the balance of the decent citizens out there, we wish you well and good luck as we watch this disaster manage itself from one challenge to the next.
Again we wish all our loyal and valuable Guests, Companies and Supporters every success. May you all have good luck and favour for your future endevours.
