Guest house owners often think that they do not require a liquor licence to offer and serve liquor to their guests. This is definitely not the case.

Any establishment wishing to offer and serve liquor to its guests, requires a liquor licence.

Guest house owners usually spend an enormous amount of time and a lot of money to prepare their premises for their guests. Guests nowadays mostly take it for granted that they will be able to order an alcholic beverage of some kind at a guest house. Most owners offer and serve alcoholic beverages, but most often don't consider that they are illegaly serving liquor.
