The Grand Daddy is a luxury four-star city hotel with an effervescent, creative soul. Generous, warm and welcoming; The Grand Daddy’s passion is for people. The Grand Daddy’s big talking point is its ‘penthouse’ trailer park, where a collection of vintage Airstream caravans nestle beneath the backdrop of Table Mountain. Each of the 7 two-sleeper trailer suites have been conceptualized and designed by local artists and makes for an accommodation destination like no other.

This boutique hotel is like a jewel box in the center of Cape Town’s commercial district. Beautifully decorated in contemporary style, it is well-maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are on the small side, but nicely decorated and very comfortable. The on-site

Stayed here for 5 days and enjoyed our stay very much. The room was clean and spacious and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated on long street which has plenty of bars and restaurants. The area does seem to have its share of beggars and homeless, but we

Had a quick lunch here and had to try the chicken livers. It was pretty average. The setting is quite nice on the roof with airstream caravans converted into rooms to stay over. They also show out door movies on a Monday

Dear Deepak G, Thank you for your enquiry. The Grand Daddy Hotel was built in the late 1800's, and therefore does not have onsite parking. However, we have an affiliation with a parkade nearby, and the parking fee will be refunded to you by the hotel. Regards, Brenda Campbell General Manager.

I think when they say Full they mean King, We stayed in one of the rooftop airstream trailers and it was definitely King, maybe email them directly just to be sure

Our room was great on the top floor (just under bar) and no noise issues - room was spacious but hotel was compact and maybe seen as a little child unfriendly (we only had one 2yr old boy travelling with our group and didn't notice any other kids while there). Breakfast was yum and the staff were lovely and accommodating. A bit more of a trendy boutique hotel than a family friendly one I'd say.

"Second and third floor rooms has the best view: Room 205 to be specific"
"Airstream trailers are a novelty, fun & quirky but a little run down. Perhaps book a room and just go the roof for a drink to see them."
"We did not stay in a room - but if we did we would have been in a rooftop caravan."
"do not stay at the hotel"
"Try the airstream trailers on the roof"
