I stayed in one of the Grand Daddy’s contemporary Superior rooms at the end of June on a local friend’s recommendation, and it did not disappoint. The entire room was fresh, clean, modern, and well-maintained. The towels and linens were luxurious and plentiful, and the nightly turn-down service (with candy!) was a treat. Small details like the body-length mirrors inside the dark wood bureaus made getting ready to go out such a pleasure.
Tech amenities like in-room wifi routers (extra $), universal sockets, and new TVs with USB ports for watching external media were a traveler’s dream come true. The air conditioner/heater was new, quiet, and had a remote so I could bump it up a few degrees during the chilly winter nights without getting out from under the thick bedding. Very up to up-to-date, and very appreciated.
The employees at this hotel were a treat. The doorman and front desk staff were always welcoming and helpful, and made me feel safe and secure in a bustling, new city. Major props to the cleaning crew; my room was always absolutely spotless. This staff cares.
Note that this hotel is right on Long Street, and while the balcony doors are insulated, you will most certainly hear the comings and goings of the city beneath you. It never bothered me. I found my room to be a wonderful respite from the hustle and bustle of busy Cape Town. One can find cheaper accommodations on Long Street, but not with this level of comfort and class. Phenomenal value.
I’ll be back!
