After security make two right turns and take the elevator up to the fourth floor.

The lounge entrance is ahead after getting off the elevator.  Hours are 5:00 to 21:00 daily except it closes at 20:00 on saturday.  Maximum stay is two hours.

It is a two-story lounge with views of the runways.

I visited in the morning so breakfast items were on offer including pastries, fruit and hot entrees.20170704_142304_resized20170704_142621_resized20170704_142515_resized

Coffee, juices and soft drinks were available with breakfast.20170608_084459_resized20170619_142626_resized_1

A stairway at the rear of the lounge leads to the second level. The balcony has plenty of seating including conference tables.20170608_084455_resized_120170608_084419_resized20170608_084410_resized20170704_143330_resized

Other Facilities

This lounge has showers, which is somewhat of a surprise because it only serves domestic flights.  Wifi is available as well as TV.  It was easy to connect to the Wifi, and the speed was more than adequate when I checked email and opened documents.  There is a flight monitor for keeping track of departure times and flight status.

Overall Impression

While not luxurious by any means, the Bidvest premier Lounge in the domestic terminal at CPT is pretty nice overall.  The food was good and electrical outlets plentiful.  It is a fine place to relax or work before a flight.
