In honour of Mandela Day, Pepperclub Hotel & Spa staff spent their 67 minutes serving a hot lunch to The Haven Night Shelter, a welfare organisation located in Green Point. The shelter provides temporary shelter, physical care, social welfare and family re-unification services to the adult homeless population in the Cape Town Metropole, and is a sanctuary for many of the city’s underprivileged and homeless residents.
Haven Night Shelter residents were treated to beef and chicken burgers, mashed potatoes, caramelised onion and tomato stew and delicious danya sausages. “After having the privilege of donating a sizable amount of linen earlier this year we’re very pleased to have been awarded the opportunity to be back at the shelter. Seeing the satisfied faces of the night shelter residents really made my day,” said Matthew Cornall, General Manager at Pepperclub Hotel & Spa.
Pepperclub Hotel & Spa has been nominated as a finalist in the 2015 World Luxury Hotel Awards.
Established as a celebration of ultimate achievement in service excellence, the awards set a benchmark for luxury hotels and spas globally. Pepperclub Hotel & Spa’s placement in the heart of Cape Town, coupled with its five star offerings and personalised touches and tailored services, has placed the hotel in the running for this prestige recognition.
Nick Seewer, CEO of Pepperclub Hotel & Spa says that the hotel seeks to clinch this pinnacle of achievement awarded to Luxury Hotels & Spas worldwide. “Our friendly staff members are always pleased to serve: from our front of house staff and concierge, ready to realise and bring your travel dreams to life, to the room service personnel who are on hand to attend to your every whim, no matter the hour. We have benchmarked our service levels on global standards to guarantee that travellers stay in the vibrant Mother City exceeds every expectation.”
This is the hotel’s first nomination in the World Luxury Hotel Awards, but last month saw the hotel being awarded the title of Africa’s Leading City Hotel for the third consecutive year in the 2015 World Travel Awards. Its grand 20th floor Penthouse was also recognised by the awards platform this year and was named South Africa’s Leading Hotel Suite.

Our 2015 Winter wine tasting series started with a bang last night at the Paparazzi Bar & Lounge. To create the perfect atmosphere for the Christmas in July theme, guests were treated with a Gingerbread House (created by our own pastry chef PaulaJohnson), and various candy bars, shortbread cookies and Christmas mince pies.
Our hosting winery for the night, Diemersfontein Wine & Country Estate, offered four of their delicious varietals including Diemersfontein Pinotage, Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Malbec, Diemersfontein Shiraz and Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Chenin Blanc. Needless to say, they were a hit amongst guests
Having linked up with the First Thursday initiative for the Winter season – we lined up dynamic duo Acoustic Element to create a lively atmosphere and keep visiting guests entertained. They dazzled guests throughout the evening with their swagger and sweet sounds.
The duo, Joey and Callen, also assisted us with our lucky draw for the night, which saw one lucky lady win two bottles of Diemersfontein Pinotage. We are also running an overall competition throughout the Winter wine tasting series which will see a lucky winner win the grand prize of one night’s stay – so don’t forget to drop your business card in the cookie jar
Our new bar and tapas menu was also introduced to guests, which includes Greek meatballs, Jalapeno and Cheese Rissoles, Japanese Crumbed Chicken Goujons, just to mention a few. Samples of these tapas were provided to guests throughout the night, and all dishes were thoroughly enjoyed by all. The tapas menu will become a regular feature in Paparazzi Bar & Lounge going forward.
If you missed out last night, be sure to visit the second instalment of the Christmas in July wine tasting series on Thursday 09 July 2015 at 5.30pm to sample varieties from The Wine List, featuring brands such as Stony Brook and Baccarat.
