The Bantry Bay Suite Hotel and Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel are providing in-house guests with a free Handy smartphone.

Equipped to better discover and experience what the city has to offer, guests are able to take this travel buddy on or offsite and can conveniently make unlimited local and international calls. This gives global travellers the ability to stay connected with friends and family without the trouble of purchasing a local SIM card, or the worry of roaming charges.

“We are always thinking of new ways to better serve our guests and the Handy device is a top-notch piece of technology ready to be used and placed in every room,” explains LinĂ© De Wit, reservations manager at Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel.

The mobile travel guide also includes details of the services available at both hotels as well as location specific content such as nearby tourist attractions, places of interest, and brand promotions offered in the area.

More than a smartphone, the Handy technology also eases communication between the hotel and in-house guests; speed dial to the hotel’s concierge or guest services where the team can assist with travel recommendations, directions, and more.

“At the Bantry Bay Suite Hotel, we aim to provide guests with maximum comfort ensuring a memorable experience for all,” says GM Maxwell Magodla. “This ease-of-use service allows us to do just that in an ever-evolving technological era.”
