Pepperclub Hotel & Spa in Cape Town has been named Africa’s Leading City Hotel for the third consecutive year in the 2015 World Travel Awards – the ultimate travel accolade that recognises and rewards excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry.
Situated in the heart of the vibrant Mother City, the five star 210 suite hotel lends itself to both leisure and business travellers due to its close proximity to the business district and tourist destinations, all a few minutes’ away..
Pepperclub Hotel & Spa’s grand Penthouse was also recognised by the awards platform this year, being named South Africa’s Leading Hotel Suite. Located on the 20th floor and spanning across the top two floors of the hotel, the luxurious Penthouse Suite offers three en-suite bedrooms, a spacious lounge with floor to ceiling windows, a dining room and open plan kitchen, all enhanced by a wraparound balcony with views of Table Mountain, Signal Hill, the City and Table Bay. The rooftop and upper level of the Penthouse Suite comprises of a private swimming pool, sundeck and terrace.
Now in its 22nd year, the awards are globally known as the “The Oscars of the Travel Industry” and all titles are awarded based on votes from travellers and industry professionals.
Nick Seewer, CEO of Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, says the staff and management at the hotel are thrilled that the hotel continues to be recognised as Africa’s Leading City Hotel as it reinforces their commitment to deliver the best to all guests visiting the hotel. “We are hopeful that our efforts over the past three years will secure us the title of the World’s Leading City Hotel in the global awards ceremony taking place later this year.”
He adds that the new title of South Africa’s Leading Hotel Suite is truly fitting for the Pepperclub’s Penthouse Suite. “Affectionately known as the Penthouse in the Sky, the suite towers over the City and allows guests to soak up the energy and views from the many vantage points offered by the Suite,” says Seewer.
Capetonians are in for a treat this coming Thursday, 2 July at Pepperclub Hotel & Spa as they launch their Christmas in July Winter wine tasting series – complete with live music to ring in the festive cheer!
Not only will guests have the opportunity to sample one of the Cape’s best brands in a lively and festive atmosphere at one of the city’s premier establishments, but also soak up the sweet sounds performed by dynamic duo, Acoustic Element.
Perfectly suited for the wintery weather, the launch of the Christmas in July themed Winter wine tasting series will showcase Diemersfontein Wine & Country Estate’s renowned range of wines, including the original Coffee Chocolate Pinotage.

Hotel staff and guests were in for double-treat in May when we hosted the K2 Twinswhilst they were in Cape Town for an event.
Well-known for being farmers and models, Charlie and Alex, or more favourably referred to as the K2-Twins, are originally from the small town of Vredendal.
Our foyer was abuzz with excitement as the twins relaxed on our renowned red chairs, better known as our ‘Hot Seats’, situated at the entrance of the hotel, before being whisked to the launch of a new range for Calvin Klein Jeans in South Africa where they modeled the new #mycalvins Denim Series. Their visit to the Mother City wasn’t all business though, and Charlie and Alex were able to squeeze in a massage at our Cayenne Spa – much to the delight of the ladies visiting the spa!
Before departing the next day, they showed their appreciation for the full buffet breakfast at Sinatra’s Restaurant, which didn’t disappoint with a healthy variety of fruits to help them prepare for an entire day in front of the camera
