Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa

June 18, 2010 by

The Grand Daddy Hotel is a 35-room, 4-star, luxury boutique hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. Situated in a prime location, between Table Mountain and the Victoria & Albert Waterfront on Table Bay, the Grand Daddy Hotel is perfectly located for both business and pleasure visitors to Cape Town. Part of the Daddy Long Legs Group of hotels, the Grand Daddy is their jewel in the crown with its famous Airstream Penthouse Trailer Park.

Accommodations at the Grand Daddy hotel comes in Room, Suite and Penthouse Airstream Trailer options, the latter being a fun, stylish and creative concept that has earned the hotel its well-deserved worldwide acclaim.


The Superior Rooms are chic yet delicately daring, in a subtle, stylish and silvery design. Air-conditioned, en-suite and entertaining; the comforts of an internationally recognised four-star hotel room are made all the more delicious when peppered with clever local touches under the direction of Cape Town based décor-magician, Tracy Lynch. Lampshades boast South African place names – from Poffadder to Polakwane – and headboards are bedecked with African-aloe silhouettes. Snug furry blankets add texture to cool cotton linen-whites, whilst geographic origami inspires you to plan your travels on silver-etched black globes. Luxe out in your ensuite marble bathroom as you daydream about adventures, seeping in the ebb and flow of memories that you want to hold onto forever.

The Sugar Daddy Suites (there are two separate suites) have their own secluded, wooden-decked patios, elegant lounges with plasma TV, king-size beds and deluxe bathrooms. Elegant, Stylish and luxuriously inviting, it’s the kind of place you wont want to leave. Luckily, for Cape Town’s sake, you’re in one of the world’s premier travel destinations that will draw you out of your room so that the places and people can fill you with wonderment.

The Airstream Penthouse Trailer Park atop the Grand Daddy Hotel is truly something to behold. It’s fun, stylish and on the right side of design excellence, which you feel could easily have cheapened the hotel had it not been done well. And it has been done well, very well! A gleaming fleet of seven iconic American Airstream trailers line roost on the rooftop of The Grand Daddy Hotel, against the dramatic and magical backdrop of Table Mountain. 

Each of the seven trailers has been handed over to some incredibly creative Capetonian soul to find new life through playful, eccentric and dazzling décor interpretations of how life in an Airstream can be. Your Airstream is enclosed by a tidy garden complete with US Postal Service mailboxes. Watch an outdoor movie on hot summer nights at The Pink Flamingo Cinema and find an excuse to make this the destination for your next gathering of family and friends. All the Airstreams are air-conditioned, incredibly well-insulated, have hot and cold running water, flushing toilets and showers. To enjoy them as a guest, or simply as a must-see attraction – just take the vintage elevator to the third floor, take the rooftop exit and enter the adventure.

Dining at the Grand Daddy Hotel comes via The Showroom Cafe, a stylish modern restaurant that features a wonderful menu of fresh local produce that is acquired organically wherever possible. The Daddy Cool Bar is on the hippest places to see and be seen in Cape Town, offering everything from vibrant cocktails to exclusive wines and single malt whiskies.

The Grand Daddy can also serve as the ideal place for meeting and events, offering facilities for up to 120 people via The Boardroom, The Venue and The Airstream Trailer Park.

Cleverly designed, and overflowing with style and chic, the Grand Daddy Hotel has used originality and design excellence to establish itself as one of the premier boutique hotel in South Africa. Combine the style and luxury of the accommodations with its location in the heart of Cape Town and the result is a must-stay experience for the Chic Traveler.
