Star Rating: 

A characterful boutique hotel with a lot of attitude, The Grand Daddy is located right in the heart of Cape Town and offers more than just a comfortable bed.

With its own rooftop trailer park and rooftop cinema, the Grand Daddy, is considered to be one of Cape Town's best hotels and we think it the ideal base for exploring and accessing some of the cool adventures close to the city.

Airstream Rooftop Trailer Park

If you are looking for novelty, you will find it on the roof top of The Grand Daddy Hotel where they have created a rooftop trailer park using seven 1950's Airstream Trailers. The interior of each of the trailers has been carefully and often quirkily themed by an eclectic mix of designers.

Restaurants & Bars

The L'Apero Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers guests a simple choice of fresh, international cuisine. Lunch can also be enjoyed in the Trailer Park at the popular Rooftop Restaurant.


In addition to the featured activities shown on the below sample itinerary, there are many more options available to keep you occupied in Cape Town.

For the adrenalin junkies, you can abseil down Table Mountain, join a tandem skydive, go paragliding or enjoy a microlight flight. For those wanting a more relaxed experience, a visit to Robben Island, whale watching or a wine tasting tour of a local vineyard can be arranged.


Diving with the seals is from zodiacs launched from a jetty. We recommend a 5 – 7mm wetsuit for this dive – and a hood is useful for those that feel the cold.

Tanks and weights are included.

An optional dive with the seven gills sharks is available at an additional charge - please ask out sales team for more information.
