Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town

The Grand Daddy has infused all its rooms with magical creative touches to ensure guests are pleasantly surprised by the humorous and the interesting, including the Daddy Cool Bar and The Venue, a function and conferencing space. The Grand Daddy’s warm and hospitable staff will guide you through this gentle journey, offering little-known information about the surrounds and history, whilst also performing the necessary business of hotels in a calm and caring manner. 

Of course, The Grand Daddy’s big talking point is its ‘Penthouse’ Trailer Park. Take the vintage elevator to the top floor and walk onto the rooftop where a collection of air-conditioned vintage Airstream trailers inhabits a garden setting beneath the backdrop of Table Mountain.

Each of the seven, en-suite, two-sleeper trailer suites have been conceptualized and designed by local artists and makes for an accommodation destination like no other.

The Grand Daddy offers business travellers a number of not-so-boring business facilities. The Venue: a fully catered and managed central city location for conferences, launches, meetings and cocktail parties. Good presentation gadgets too. The Boardroom: a focused space to meet, brainstorm and plan your empire.

Very good value, lots of character, great staff. No complaints really. Other hotels in the area aren't as colorful and are more expensive. Area is fine but has a bit of night life on weekends. Would definitely stay here again.

This rooftop Airstream trailer hotel is amazing! I unfortunately havent had the opportunity to stay here, but I love to visit their rooftop bar and admire the stunning views of the city and Table Mountain. Very reasonably priced and their pizzas are delish

LOVED our experience of the Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street. And it truly was more of an experience than your average hotel stay. Take a look at some of my pics for more info. The bar area upstairs, the old school elevator, the warm staff and central location make this one of the best stays in Cape Town you could hope to book.

The place to stay on Long Street. It's the place to party and explore the authentic side of Capetown but still stay in a unique safe hotel.

We stayed in a rooftop Airstream and loved it. There was a movie playing on the rooftop deck the night we arrived, which with our "room" tight there made for a cozy experience. Oh and they gave out popcorn, candy and blankets; that was a nice touch!

Very nice Hotel in the lively part of town. The hotel have very nice vibe. The restaurant serve good food and the staff are friendly and the service good. The place are nice and clean. Must visit is the Sky bar on top. There are live music in the restaurant where you can listen to music have a been and something to eat. Lots of hangouts nearby.

"Best place for a night on the town"

Stayed here in the Trailer park, as a Capetonian for a little Long Street R+R. It was great - best fun evening ever. Highly recommended. The rooftop bar closes at 9, but you can just head downstairs to the main bar, or venture out on to Long Street to one of the many bars and restaurants. At the moment (October 2012) there is some upgrading of the rooftop going on during the day. The caravans are fun, well equipped for just about anything. I would have liked a WIFI network probably the only thing I missed. Breakfast is included and was great, staff also friendly and helpful
