About The Grand Daddy Hotel

Luxury shouldn’t exclude playfulness so The Grand Daddy has infused all its rooms and communal spaces with magical creative touches to ensure that guests are pleasantly surprised by the unexpected, the humorous and the interesting.

The Grand Daddy’s warm and hospitable staff will guide you through this gentle journey throughout your stay by offering little-known information about the surrounds and the history whilst also performing the necessary business of hotels in a calm and caring manner.

The Grand Daddy’s big talking point is its ‘penthouse’ trailer park, where a collection of seven original vintage Airstream caravans nestle beneath the backdrop of Table Mountain. Artists, designers and cleverly creative people were given the task of transforming these iconic collectables into themed rooms. Guests can now enjoy an exciting camping experience in the middle of Africa’s coolest city.


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.

Luxe out in your en-suite marble bathroom as you daydream about adventures, seeping in the ebb and flow of memories that you want to hold onto forever.

Breakfast and Dining

The Café is the Grand Daddy’s friendly food centre. Offering more than your average selection of breakfasts, it’s also a good stop for buffet lunches and sandwiches and a selection of dinner dishes for those nights when you don’t feel like venturing far. In fact, you don’t have to venture at all – The Café’s menu is fully available on room service.

Daddy Cool

Inspired by the love of all things bling, the Grand Daddy’s hotel bar is a white and gold playspace where you can sip on fine wines, gorgeous cocktails, happy-go-lucky bubbly and a good old fashioned selection of spirits. Open each evening (except for Sundays) Daddy Cool kicks back with good sounds and live performances throughout the week.

Conference and Events

The Grand Daddy offers business travellers a number of not-so-boring business facilities.

The Venue:
A fully catered and managed central city location for conferences, launches, meetings, cocktail parties and pow-wows. Good presentation gadgets too.

The Boardroom:
Book the boardroom if you need privacy and a focused space to meet, brainstorm and plan your empire.
