I think the breakfast is well worth it. On race day, it is available ultra early. The night before, their buffet dinner becomes very carb focused too. The Hilton is totally geared to Comrades in the week up to the race. When you limp back in after your race, they greet you with towels and a huge bag of ice!
As for the qualifier - you just tell them about it. I have submitted a link to my results, but I'm not sure if they actually checked it or not.
