A few days in Cape Town for the Southern Ink Tattoo Convention in Jan 2012 and staying at the Grand Daddy - a cool long weekend! ;-) Situated in the middle of Cape Town on famous Long Street , the Grand Daddy is a cool stay for experienced and open travelers - not the usual thing..! Not for the corporate traveler or your Uncle Joe from Kokomoe...The Daddy is rewarding you with a cool interior, a trailer park on the roof top and nice bars. The best: restaurants and clubs galore within walking distance. The service was o.k., but not outstanding, the team seemed very friendly but understaffed at times and the bars on the rooftop or on the first floor are not permanently open. The trailer park - a trade mark of the Grand Daddy - looks great, but is no alternative to the hotel's regular rooms, except if you like real tight spaces and have no need for sleep: The rooftop bar and stage are used regularly for concerts and private functions which would leave you in your trailer howling' at the moon! You might yourself as well get a dose of live sounds from the roof if your regular hotel room is facing into the inner courtyard.
We had a real good stay: a big, fine breakfast every day. Small, but nicely decorated room with all amenities needed.And all this in the middle of the Mother City. We will definitively come back and can recommend the Grand to 'funky' type of travelers. Rock on!
