What a great hotel, very well located on Long Street, close to a range of restaurants bars and shopping choices. Much more authentic to stay in this part of town than the water front. Staff throughout are friendly and helpful. They are obviously well trained and motivated. We found the service here much better than at the Mount Nelson, where... More

We went outside to get some air and the party had taken over our little garden space and used our deck chairs. 2 people from the party also just opened our van door as they were inquisitive to...

I often tend to forget that there are such incredible places to visit in the Cape Town CBD. Long street and surrounds is after all one of the more well known areas in town. Surrounded by Cape Town's working city, great restaurants and shops stands the Grand Daddy Hotel. A classic, stunning vintage building, the hotel inside is nicely refurbished... More

We visited here twice,it was by far the best place we found to eat in cape town.The atmosphere was much better than down the water front and the whole area is worth a visit in the daytime.It is quite a small restaurant but full of character

We spent one night in an Airstream in the roof top trailer park. Combined with the open air rooftop bar, I can't think of a better way to end the Cape Town part of our South Africa tour. Convenient for the Station for our onward journey to Johannesburg. The Airstream is good for a couple of nights but you might... More

We had great service and thoroughly enjoyed the very well-planned, beautifully decorated trailer park on the roof - it was an excellent stay! The staff were all very friendly, from check-in to leaving we had great service.
