"Really nice interieur and so kind staff "
We stayed there four nights - every time again, but next time in a trailer on the rooftop! You get two bottles of water. Wifi-code and save parking slot is available. Good located for City walks and bars at (the end of) Long Street. Everybody is really polite. Try the restaurant (Thirty Ate) and rooftop bar!
"Drinks in the Trailer Park"
Had to go see the Airstream Trailer Park at the Grand Daddy Hotel. The staff let us tour a couple of them. Very well appointed. Interesting bar among the many bars on Long Street. Definitely worth seeing.
"Just popped in for a drink amongst the airstreams"
This is a very quirky hotel on Long Street. We weren't staying there, just popped in to visit the roof which holds some 6 or 7 airstream caravans. Each one is a bedroom, and they surround a seating area that doubles as an outdoor cinema (Monday evenings). There is also a bar. We visited before the sky bar was open, but drinks were kindly brought up from the ground floor bar. Very different and great fun!
"Nicely designed, badly managed"
Grand Daddy is in a good location (lively street scene, easy walk to most central spots) and has an attractive appearance in the public areas, but we were unhappy with our Superior room (smaller than expected, with no chair or sofa and window across alley to office building) and particularly with the front desk staff's lack of effort. The wi-fi was down for several hours when we arrived, which is not a huge deal but the staff's apathy and unwillingness to acknowledge the problem was annoying. We were expecting a messenger delivery, and despite telling the desk 5 times and asking whether it had come yet it turned out they told the messenger they had never heard of us. I had to pick it up from our previous hotel myself. There were a couple of other similar problems -- nothing awful, just dispiriting. The restaurant staff was quite nice but the food (breakfast) was mediocre.
My husband and I stayed in one of the airstream trailers for three nights at the end of September and loved our stay! The hotel is centrally located and in easy, and safe, walking distance from bars and restaurants. The onsite restaurant and roof top bar are also great choices for nightlife. Staying in the trailer was a unique experience that we loved. The trailer was cozy and comfortable. The staff was delightful and very helpful. Originally we were meant to transfer to a standard room after two nights but loved the trailer so much we decided to stay in the trailer for the third night and the staff made that transition so easy. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Cape Town.
