Zimbabweans React To 5-Star Meikles Hotel’s Bucket Baths Debacle
Meikles Hotel is trending on social media for all the wrong reasons. The five-star hotel made the headlines after it was revealed that it could not supply hot water to guests due to a power failure.
The hotel manager advised guests that they would receive buckets of hot water whenever they needed to bath.
Unsurprisingly, Meikles Hotel’s bucket bath debacle has received much attention from Zimbabweans online.
Many were shocked that the hotel could not come up with a better solution to the unplanned emergency, considering that it is supposed to be five-star.
Others produced memes and jokes, making light of the hotel’s woes.
However, some were more sympathetic, arguing that the hotel should not take any flak for the situation, which was not of their creation. They argued that the hotel was also a victim of the inefficiencies caused by the country’s power utility.
Below are some Zimbabweans’ reactions on social media to the Meikles Hotel bucket bath debacle.
Also hilarious is that, apart from poor management, the hotel manager thought it’s good PR to write this and send to guests.
