Award-winning design hotel in the heart of Cape Town City
The Grand Daddy Hotel takes the creative energy of Cape Town's Long Street to a new level. Housed in a magnificent 1895 building in the hub of Cape Town, this four-star hotel pampers guests with luxurious attention and playful originality. Take the vintage elevator up to the rooftop to see the crown jewel: A penthouse trailer park with 7 vintage Airstream caravans, complete with US Postal Service mailboxes. Cocktail hour finds the cool set mixing in style at the Daddy Cool Bar.
