Stayed one night in April 2016
A bit expensive for the experience
A bit noisy at night coming from many fans around the trailers, probably the air conditioning of the building.

Not worth the money

Great location, food, staff
Staff assistance, chicken cordon bleu, rooftop
We chose to stay here for one night following a long international flight before moving to Camps Bay, we had a late arrival and the Grandaddy was in a perfect location to come from the airport late night and check in. Staff was welcoming and helpful.

Great funky hotel
Location, Character, Comfort
This hotel really hit the mark for me on many levels. Being in a historic building in Cape Town with an Airstream trailer park on the roof it's funky with a lot of character. The rooms were clean and modern, the staff was helpful, and the breakfast was very good. It is right in the heart of the central business district and convenient. The staff were courteous, well-trained, and helpful, although the extensive legal agreement that the hotel required be signed at check-in seemed a bit over the top. All in all it was a very good stay.
