My husband and I chose Old Mac Daddy to get away from the noisy city life we live in. The trailer was lovely and the food in the Barn was alright. We had a lovely walk on the property on the Saturday and there was plenty to do. Our trailer was unfortunately really close to the main part of the...

Stayed at Old Mac Daddy for two nights 24-26 May 2017 and was absolutely blown away by the trailer accommodation and the entire complex. Very cleverly thought out complex and architecture. My wife and i decided to take our quarterly breakaway to yet again try out something different. We stayed in the Digit trailer and was so comfortable at the...

Something different, stayed in the Blue Submarine - definitely the most funky accommodation we have overnighted in. Enjoyed the food at the restaurant, good breakfast included. Don't bring very heavy bags as it is quite a long climb to the higher units...great view from the top though!

The reception we received from Kenny on arrival was great and from then on everything was even better. The service in the Barn was excellent and every person we came across was more than friendly.The food in the Barn was very tasty and I would recommend the Oxtail as the meat fell off the bones. I would agree with some...

My partner and I recently got married and we were gifted a 2 night stay at a surprise location and given a GPS with co-ordinates on our wedding night to get here. Boy were we in for a treat, we had no idea where we were going and seeing all the caravan signs along the road gave us a clue...

We were greeted but the friendliest receptionist and taken to our cute little birdie trailer,It's small and snug and adorable and happy...

Beautiful venue - very unique. Although it was cold in May I could see how in summer this would be s perfect place to enjoy the beach and its surrounds. You absolutely feel like you are on holiday and can relax.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Part wholesome caravan park, part designer farm lodge, Old Mac Daddy Trailer Hotel is a new chapter in adventure, escapism and pure relaxation. Set on the pine-whispering slopes of a beautiful corner of the Elgin Valley, Old Mac Daddy is a collection of vintage Airstream Trailer Suites, each designed by an artist, designer or creative living and working in Cape Town. Fully catered and serviced; Old Mac Daddy offers trailer units with themed bedrooms and earth-friendly living spaces. A big designer barn is the communal area where all meals are served. Visit the Grolsch bar or take a dip in the swimming pool, explore the area or just relax. TRAILER SUITES Old Mac Daddy consists of ten trailer suites, two lake-side units and a family farm house - Daddy’s Villa. Each of our trailer suites is a world of its own. The Airstreams themselves have been transformed into bespoke bedrooms; each with its own theme, style and feeling from the magical to the quirky and a whole range of delicate and wonderful things in between. All but the lakeside suites, have additional living areas and decks, which allow for light-filled lounging (or use it as a kids bedroom) and time out. An en-suite bathroom with shower adds luxury to the experience making it a camping holiday like no other. Heated in winter, cooled in summer and cleverly insulated throughout, you will be sleeping way past the first cock-a-doodle-doo! THE BARN, RESTAURANT AND GROLSCH BARThis barn is more of an off-piste designer ski-lodge (without the snow, of course) boasting dramatic agrarian vistas and a vibe that says poolside in summer, fireside in winter. The indoor-outdoor Barn is where guests can enjoy healthy, wholesome meals, and treats throughout the day. Chef Siya Mnguni and restaurateur Gordon Manuel have composed a kitchen vision that centres around fresh, local ingredients and big appetites. Grolsch, the premium Dutch beer behind the sleek, magnetic Airstream, is also the creative force behind the world-class bar at the heart of the park. The large 13-metre bar makes a bold statement with its size and striking finishes. One of only a few to offer Grolsch draught, the bar is fitted with a stainless steel tap imported from Europe. Old Mac Daddy welcomes small people with an indoor-outdoor play area and a daily kiddies meal. Parents must take heed however that a pool and natural, unfenced lakes are a part of this landscape and children should be watched at all times. CONFERENCING & CELEBRATIONSA brilliant venue for conferences, meetings, pow-wows, retreats, celebrations and weddings – Old Mac Daddy can be rented entirely for functions or partially for meetings. A boardroom/conference area is located on the property (seats 20). Wireless broadband is available for those needing to get some work done. WHO IS IT FOR?Old Mac Daddy is for anyone who needs a break from the city. Anyone who wants to breathe fresh air, have apple juice run down their chin and swim in the farm dam and spend star-shot nights melting marshmallows over the fire. It’s for anyone who loves to take brisk walks in winter and then curl up in front of a cosy fire. Old Mac Daddy is for everyone. ... more   less
