While most hotels rooms are just boxes plashed with beds and lamps, the Grand Daddy Boutique hotel in Cape Town has another story to tell. Located in a picturesque heritage building (that also accommodates the oldest working elevator in Cape Town), the hotel is a chic fairytale that you’d wish to stumble upon!
Located at Cape Town’s trendy Long Street, the Grand Daddy accommodates 33 rooms along with seven gleaming Airstream trailers on its roof. Fit to evoke the missing nostalgia, the trailers include well-traveled classics imported from Ohio, the USA that is further staffed with a queen-size bed, a wet room with a shower and WC, a TV, aircon and a fridge each.
And while each airstream has its own tale to tell, the trailers collectively depict a South African road trip with stark representations of the beach, winelands, safari, gold rush, Namaqualand’s floral kingdom, city flights, and the Karoo desert.
In addition to the plush trailers, the hotel is also home to the ultra-posh “Daddy’s Suites” which are designed for your luxurious pampering. There’s also a Thirty Ate Eatery restaurant, the Sky Bar and the Pink Flamingo Rooftop Cinema for you the perfect leisurely evenings.
The Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel also earns brownie points for being centrally located. It is a stone’s throw from major city attractions such as the beautiful Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and can easily be maneuvered from the city center.
What’s more, the hotel has also been entitled as one of the five most unique hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveler. Ready for your next staycation?
