The Pepper Club, Loop Street, Cape Town.


The reception of the Pepper Club Luxury Hotel and Spa.


There is a "working" grand piano in the foyer


Two of the reddest chairs I have ever seen.


An area to realx in before going through to dinner,
or waiting for friends...


With a well stocked bar, and friendly staff,
a wait is not a bad thing...


There is an inside...


and outside dining area.


And if you feel that you have eaten too much,
you can work it off here.


Or with a relaxing massage or treatment at the Spa.
There are also saunas available to relax and enjoy


An outdoor, roof top lap pool


And downstairs, within the conference and business centre...
A cinema!


The deluxe room I stayed in boasted a small working area


A kitchen with all the comforts of home.
Including an oven and a hob


Bathroom and shower.
The toilet is separate, great idea from a privacy point of view


Comfy beds that look out over the Cape Town city centre


An armchair to relax in...


And a balcony to stand and contemplate on.


The lift lobby on my floor


Dinner for one.
It was delicious.


Enough work,
I am off to bed...

Goodbye to The Cape Milner Hotel, many thanks


The courtyard behind the conference centre.
It is also overlooked by some of the luxury rooms,
Mine included.


The pool deck was one of the areas that benefited from the recent refurbishment


This seating area is situated outside the Glass Lounge and just below the pool deck.
It is also close to the bar and dining room.
Very convenient


The Glass Lounge...
It can be found just behind the gym and up a short flight of stairs from the reception area


A well stocked bar,
with friendly service is a must.
And the Cape Milner offers both


Another part of the Glass Lounge.
Even in the pouring rain, this area was warm and welcoming


The dining room.
Simple but elegant


Anyone for a drink?
The new Spring menu, 2014 has just been launched.
See this posting for a brief food review:

I do like this piece of drift wood (?) in the foyer


Part of the reception area


Flowers fro my daughter,
snacks for me...


The blinds in the bathroom can either be rolled up, as in this case,
or lowered. Depending on the level of privacy required


A first...
I found this in the wardrobe.


And REAL sash windows that open and close!


If you are celebrating an event,
tell management.
They did this for my daughter's 30th birthday breakfast


It was only as I was checking out that I noticed this mirror.
There are a trio of them behind the reception desk.
Each with a different set of animals on it.


I forgot to ask if these goldfish had names.


After my stay, we headed off the peruse the antique shops in Kalk Bay



Many thanks to General Manager, Jeremy Flowerday
for making this a very special stay.
