Gugulethu Hotel is set in the heart of Gugulethu, next to a series of amenities and attractions, and is linked to various shopping centres and night-spots. The site is only 5km from the Cape Town International Airport and about 20km from the Cape Town City centre. The hotel fuses into the context by allowing the street to flow into the property and creating smooth-flowing activities from the entrance to the swimming pool and braai area at the back. This back area can also be used as an entrance by pedestrian patrons and can be re-arranged for private outdoor functions like weddings. The hotel spots two restaurants, one dedicated to African cuisine, a bar which flows into the external braai area to create the "chesa nyama" effect so popular "ekasi". Guests can select from various spa treatments and utilize the business centre. The hotel also offers laundry services and luggage storage space. Excursions, "township tours" and various City and Cape Peninsula tours can be arranged at the tour desk.
