Translation of Dutch advertisement:
OWNER – A. DUBOIS
SUMMER HOLIDAYS AT THE STRAND
There is no better place for anyone who wishes to enjoy a holiday in a quiet location with lots of fresh air, than the HOTEL METROPOLE AT SOMERSET STRAND.
Situated on the beach,
The Hotel has a beautiful view, is the most conveniently situated for sea bathing, and through an outing to Gordon’s Bay, offers lovely fishing.
As the whole Hotel
IS EXCELLENTLY FURNISHED,
Visitors can enjoy all conveniences and nothing that can add to their comfort and pleasure is overlooked.
The Owner is Mr A. DUBOIS, who has held important positions as Chef of the Raleigh Club, London; Steward of the City Club, Cape Town, and of the Kimberley Club; as well as Caterer for four years for the late Lord Loch. He personally oversees all meals, and the cuisine is therefore a speciality.
Special Meals are available at any time, with ten minutes advance notice.
SPECIALLY REDUCED TARIFFS FOR VISITORS FROM SATURDAY TO MONDAY.
