We ensure that each person's stay is comfortable, interesting and filled with those little details that make your hotel a personal home throughout your visit. Owned by the same group that brought you the Award-winning Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel, The Grand Daddy's décor is part of the experience. The richly South African urban cultural references that are peppered throughout the interiors are presented in a globally glamorous context.

And, if you want to explore our city and country further, The Grand Daddy's staff will be able to help you plan your trip in style.

Guest Room Facilities: Superior Rooms: Chic yet delicately daring, the Grand Daddy's rooms are subtle, stylish and silvery. Air-conditioned, en-suite and entertaining; the comforts of an internationally recognised four-star hotel room are made all the more delicious when peppered with clever local touches under the direction of Cape Town based décor-magician, Tracy Lynch. Lampshades boast South African place names - from Poffadder to Polakwane - and headboards are bedecked with African-aloe silhouettes. Snug furry blankets add texture to cool cotton linen-whites, whilst geographic origami inspires you to plan your travels on silver-etched black globes. Luxe out in your en-suite marble bathroom as you daydream about adventures, seeping in the ebb and flow of memories that you want to hold onto forever. The bedrooms have Cable/Satellite/DVD/Movie Channels.
Dining / Bar Facilities: The Showroom Café: Legendary Cape Town chef, Bruce Robertson, has teamed up with the exceptionally capable and impressively experienced, Simoné Rossouw to create a very yummy corner café right here at The Grand Daddy. Start with breakfast! The Showroom Café serves an excellent range - try a different one each day of your stay - and has a variety of 'good mood food' options for lunch and dinner. The daily marketplace is a tempting spread of buffet salads, hot bakes and curries and gorgeous home-baked breads - you can also go a la carte. Eavesdrop on Capetonians doing business over your morning coffee and papers, dine on fresh fish or a good cut of meat at dinner or indulge yourself with a night in and some room service. Note the extensive wine list too! The Showroom Café always chooses fresh (preferably organic) and saves you a few calories by skipping on butter and cream wherever possible. Look out for the Proudly South African icons to take your taste buds travelling.

The Daddy Cool Bar: The Grand Daddy's hotel bar is the 'blingest' in the land. It's not just a cool bar, it's a Daddy Cool bar! A palette of metallic and a roll-call of hip South African creatives come together in a magpie's delight. White leather, shimmery surfaces, dangly bling chains and quirky gold treasures in jewel boxes set the scene for much shiny celebration. Daddy Cool is perfect for sharing a bottle of champagne or sampling some sexy cocktails: our bar staff is of the master class when it comes to perfecting the mix and shake. An extensive wine list will thrill the connoisseur and whisky drinkers will be warmed by the diverse array of single malts. Laid-back DJ's hit the decks from time to time but mostly Daddy Cool is just a great place to hang out, unwind and meet. Capetonians are quite partial to Daddy's charms so expect to find a few of them sipping on their Mojito's and Martini's. The corridor to Daddy Cool is flanked by Cape Town's only digital art and photographic gallery. Keep an eye on the screen as contributions from the cities top talent showcase the beauty and culture of Africa's creative mecca.
