We've all done it.
If you've stayed in a hotel room and casually packed the shampoos and lotions into your luggage, then you're one of the many guests to do it.
CapeTalk listeners asked whether it would be considered stealing if you take home the bottles of shampoos and body creams provided at a hotel for the duration of your stay.
Kieno Kammies spoke to operations director at Tsogo Sun Cape Region, John van Rooyen, about whether the hotel expects guests to take these products.
There is no reason why not because all those guests supplies are costed in the rates.— John van Rooyen, Operations Director at Tsogo Sun Cape Region
We don't really mind because the people want to enjoy the quality of the products we provide in the hotels then they take them home.— John van Rooyen, Operations Director at Tsogo Sun Cape Region
We find that many people even collect these supplies globally and we don't have a problem with that at all...— John van Rooyen, Operations Director at Tsogo Sun Cape Region
