Grand Daddy Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed overnight in one of the Rooftop Trailers (CityFlights). Its next to the bar and has great views of the city. Good accommodations inside. Note that it is great for couples or single travellers but not if sharing with friends as the trailers are quite small and the beds are doubles. But the rest of the hotel rooms are great. I managed to see a Superior Room and a Luxury Room and they are really nice. The breakfast is really nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. Note if you are staying on the Rooftop Trailers, it can get a bit noisy especially over a weekend but it is great fun and something different in terms of accommodation. The rooftop bar is really nice and they have an open cinema on the roof which they play movies once a week. There is no parking so you would have to park on the street but if you dont have a car that is fine as getting around in Taxis or an Uber is no problem. I would also say the Wifi on the rooftop at times is not so great due to signal but It is a lot better inside the hotel.

We came to stay for just one night in the trailors on the rooftop of this Hotel - if you are tired of the usual hotel room - this definetly is the place to go to. Trailors are very upmarket and actually more spacious than you think! The beds are comfy and the hotel bar is about 10m from your trailor. Very friendly staff and super yum breakfast. Would have definitely stayed here longer if I could.

This is a must!!!!!! To be in the hub of where it is all happening and stay in such a beautiful place is a win win. From the time we arrived we were greeted with such a warm welcome and directed into the underground parking. We were escorted to Reception where we were welcomed with another smiley face. They say first impressions always last well this is true. Had a stunning cosy, clean room with everything you need and the most comfortable bed. Met Brenda in the morning and she made us feel at home. We would like to congratulate Brenda on the Grand Daddy ship she is sailing there. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Kind regards Rita and Frank

If you are looking for something different in the heart of Cape Town, this is the place for you. We stayed here for three nights before moving on to the wine lands. I would recommend that you go to the rooftop trailer, this is not something you will see anywhere else. Do not expect a 5star establishment, but the facilities are great, the rooms really cool and the food good. The value is also really really worth splashing out.

Great hotel and really well located for getting around. All of the staff were great and really went out of their way to engage and help, especially the guys on the door, helping with bags and taxis, as well as the great roof top bar team.

Very cool concept, hotel is in a great location - 38 restaurant serves a nice breakfast, and also had a god dinner there. Sugar Daddy Suite would be perfect if there was a balcony. The guys at the front door and reception are very friendly and helpful

The hotel is well situated on Long Street and is a lovely, interesting boutique hotel. The rooftop was closed when I was there which was disappointing as the other reviews rated it highly! The rooms were clean and well equipped and the breakfast was good too (no buffet), but there are 5-6 different options to choose from. When I got back to my room on Saturday night there was a loud party in the cinema area(?) which finished around 11. I just went down to the bar and had a drink until it finished so it was no big deal, but it was very loud on that floor!

Brilliant hotel with restaurant. Free breakfast, bar area. On Long Street. Free parking. Fantastic hotel with rooftop area. Clean pleasant rooms very friendly staff. Extremely inexpensive and high quality all around.

Booked the rooftop movie and a trailer for a one night stay and it was truly a fun night. The trailer stay came with breakfast, which was served in the downstairs restaurant and was excellent. Trailer was brlliant - it is a trailer though, so for a one night experience awesome, but wouldn't want to stay longer than that. It is pretty neat sleeping on top of the roof of a hotel in downtown Cape Town. Staff was phenomenal and went out of their way to be helpful. I do think the trailers are bit overpriced. I was lucky and got a great deal online on one of them, however, still a great experience, particularly in conjunction with the movie!

The bar on the roof of the Grand Daddy Hotel is surely unique. Set amongst the Airstream Trailers which guests can book for overnight, and you would mingle with them where they sit in the bar area which is their communal lounge. They serve great cocktails and American light meals. Sometimes they have live music.
