We stayed here while in Cape Town for work. The hotel is well located next to V&A Waterfront. The food is very good and staff were very welcoming. The employee at the counter, Luyanda, was super! He went over and above to ensure we were comfortable. Will definitely be back.

No you will not. My husband is also Gold member and I do not think they have a member's lounge and do not offer any perks like breakfast. Yo ufo get points and a check-in gift of points or water. They have a coffee machine and some cookies in the reception which is free for residents to take. That is what I remember.
