Stay in a Trailer at Grand Daddy Hotel, Cape Town

Do you like your life edgy? Do you long for the Trailer Park? Seriously! You can have both in luxury in the heart of Cape Town.

The Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street

The Grand Daddy hotel in the heart of happening Long Street believes that "luxury shouldn’t exclude playfulness". We agree. The Grand Daddy is full of creative touches to ensure that guests are pleasantly surprised by the unexpected. The biggest and most talked about "surprise" is the Trailer park.

That's right! A fleet of 7 iconic two-sleeper vintage Airstream caravans sits on the roof with Table Mountain as a backdrop. They were each individually conceptualized and designed by local artists and make for possibly the most unusual and fun accomodation you can find anywhere.
It gets better. Your air-conditioned Airstream with hot and cold running water, flush toilet and shower, is enclosed by a tidy garden complete with US Postal Service mailboxes. Watch an outdoor movie on hot summer nights at The Pink Flamingo Cinema. If that's not enough there is the Daddy Cool bar and The Showroom Café restaurant before you even step out onto hip Long Street.

Prices vary by season but the Airstreams are from about $120 per night. There are Hotel suites and the Sugar Daddy Suite but I think you should one-up your friends by telling them you're off to the Trailer Park in South Africa!
