"Comfy, safe and quirky!!"
I stayed at this hotel on the recommendation of a friend and seeing the very positive reviews here. The hotel is central on busy Long Street but rooms are still very quiet. You can walk to quite a few touristy sites in the city centre and there's great shopping for African curios nearby on Long Street. I was ok walking around the local area. The rooms aren't huge but are immaculate and really comfortable. The decor is really unique and I loved it! They have airstream trailers on the roof, which would definitely be a fun option. Breakfast is a la carte and very generous. The staff at just lovely. I enjoyed my stay.
"New Orleans vibe "
Apparently this is one of the oldest hotels in the city. Not that you would know it when you walked in. The hotel has a hip vibe to it; during the time that we were there other tourists were constantly stopping in to take photos. We stayed (one night) in the Safari trailer. I would highly recommend it if you are the type to avoid a cookie cutter experience. The trailers are parked with camp chairs just outside, and make up part of the rooftop bar. If you are concerned about noise, don't be. The bar closes at 9 pm (even on a Friday) and while you might hear people outside its way less noisy than staying in a regular hotel. These are Airstreams, you don't have neighbors. Space is a bit tight (these are Airstreams!) but compared to a hotel in Europe... You might however have an issue with space if you are taller than say 6'2". In terms of neighborhood, we were only there for one night. The immediate area doesn't seem to have much; it's a very downtown feel. But it is walkable to the Waterfront, and there are restaurants and bars nearby. Highly recommended for a different type of Capetown stay.
"On the roof garden for pre-dinner drinks"
We kept well away from the waterhole so the animals would not be disturbed from their vital activity of taking on water. We didn't have any tents so we didn't have to worry about scorpions or snakes. This hotel has STYLE. The external appearance would be Edwardian as is the mahogany lined lift. Once on the rooftop there are crowds of young people in the oasis. Some of the party don't take alcohol, so the staff made up cocktails without alcohol. The cocktails are served in jam jars- STYLISH. There is something very likable about this place. Unfortunately peace was dissolved when a thunder storm hit- and we all had to flee!
"Novel rooftop bar,great place for a cocktail"
We wanted a good place to end our three week tour of Southern Africa and found it on the rooftop bar in Grand Daddy’s. Farewell drinks sitting outside the Airstream caravans, watching an electrical storm and gathering clouds , helpful staff, lovely atmosphere and the option of continuing our farewell over dinner in the restaurant below- perfect!
"Great stay with Grand Daddy"
The hotel is located conveniently to good restaurants and sightseeing highlights; great location in the center of activity in Cape Town. The staff of the hotel and the restaurant was very friendly and extremely helpful. Service in the restaurant was very good and breakfast choice sand quality was very good.
