Cons: My first night was in room 209 and after being let in at a very late 1am checkin, I immediately found a giant roach hanging out on the bed. I tried waiting it out but the sucker was unabashed and I'm terrified of roaches....More

Dear admirewabisabi, Thank you for your review, how unfortunate that you had a stressful time. As our hotel was fully booked on the night that you checked in, the only available room for you was the single room. The Sky Bar closes at 9pm in...More

It worth to go there to spend a night in an old airstream or just going there for a cocktail at the roof top bar. Is like a small caravan park there and the airstreams are always spectacular to look at

Dear jdmcuse, Thank you for your review and for choosing the Grand Daddy Hotel for your stay in Cape Town. There are so many beautiful spots in and around our city, and Camps Bay is certainly one of them. Take care and regards, Brenda

Cute but not luxury. Great restaurant downstairs. Best coffee around, and you can buy it from a coffee vendor down the street. Centrally located, but no parking, if you are renting a car.A good effort, and amazing Airstreams on the rooftop.More
