I spent a lovely 4 nights in the Grand Daddy Hotel. The accommodations were excellent. The staff very friendly and the hotel restaurant quite tasty. The area is central and one can walk anywhere in the downtown area. I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly.

Really had a good evening. We hired out the entire roof area for my daughters 21st birthday. The staff went above and beyond and I would recommend this venue and hotel. The accommodation is of a high standard but the staff are what really make this hotel special.

We've been staying in the Grand Daddy Hotel for 5 nights in an airstream trailer on the roof. Although there is no view on the roof (mainly surounded by higher buildings), it is very cool experience to stay in an trailer right next to the rooftop bar. Every trailer is stylish stuffed with another topic. The Grand Daddy is located... More

Room: I loved the room. It was decorated with a modern and vibrant feel. It was very nice and comfortable. Everything I needed was there. Location: Right in the middle of everything you want. Close to attractions and restaurants. Service: The staff was certainly willing to help, but their ability to help guide me was lacking. When I asked for... More

Restaurant on property had a good, free breakfast. Great customer service. Funky rooftop bar surrounded by the airstreams with an outdoor movie every Monday night. Close to good... More

The rooms are stylish, the staff is very helpful and the hotel is centrally located. The breakfast is served in the restaurant next door and you can choose on their menu, so there is a lot of variety. I particularly reccomend the Sugar Daddy Suite!

My boyfriend surprised me by booking out one of the airstream caravans on the rooftop of the Grand Daddy Hotel last weekend. It was such a lovely and different experience!

It was really cold, but they supply you with enough warm blankets during the winter. Their breakfasts are well priced and the quality is good. The trailers are an experience but, obviously, it is very small for two people. The parking is R40 and it only allows for up to 5-6 cars. They offer off-hotel parking too.
