'I felt humiliated by Durbanville Hills'
A four year legal battle between a Paralympian swimmer Hendri Herbst and Durbanville Hills' winery's restaurant finally came to an end.
Herbst took legal action against the restaurant after he was refused access because he was with his guide dog. '
He says even after he tried to explain that the dog was not just a pet but a guide dog, he was still refused entry but got offered a table outside, which Herbst and his guest took.
Herbst emerged victorious from a long legal process and Durbanville Hills have since settled the matter with him.
Firstly you are very frustrated and get angry and irritated but more than that you get humiliated because you pretty much treated like a second-hand citizen. It's more like you are not worthy of seating inside.Hendri Herbst, Paralympian swimmer
As part of the settlement agreement, the Equality Court ordered Durbanville Hills to issue a public apology and further contribute R50 000 to the Guide Dogs Association as well as pay an amount of R50 000 to Herbst as compensation.
