Grand Daddy Hotel Rooms

Superior Room
Chic yet delicately daring, the Grand Daddy’s rooms are subtle, stylish and silvery. 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.

Dining

The Show Room Cafe
Legendary Cape Town chef, Bruce Robertson, has teamed up with the exceptionally capable and impressively experienced, Simoné Rossouw to create a very yummy corner café right here at The Grand Daddy. Start with breakfast! The Showroom Café serves an excellent range – try a different one each day of your stay – and has a variety of ‘good mood food’ options for lunch and dinner. The daily marketplace is a tempting spread of buffet salads, hot bakes and curries and gorgeous home-baked breads – you can also go a la carte. Eavesdrop on Capetonians doing business over your morning coffee and papers, dine on fresh fish or a good cut of meat at dinner or indulge yourself with a night in and some room service. Note the extensive wine list too!
Daddy Cool Bar
Sparkly, shiny and more than a little bit reminiscent of the uber-decadent seventies decade; Daddy Cool’s is a lounge bar for dudes and divas with cool cuts, Afros and Abba-esque tresses. Golden shimmering surfaces shout Champagne on Ice, coat Martini olives in golden sensuality and bounces liquid light off happy holiday faces. It’s crazy like a fool…you’ll love Daddy Cools.
