The GREAT Granddaddy!
For 10 days we stayed at the Grand Daddy and loved our stay. We started out in an Airstream which was fun! But keep in mind they are small and not conducive to a long stay. After 2 nights we asked if we could be moved. Faeez put us in a standard room which was great. Then he upgraded us for a few nights to the Grand Daddy. Unfortunately, our door lock jammed and we needed to be moved again. We were upgraded to the Sugar Daddy which is THE BEST! The staff was beyond helpful and pleasant. Especially FAEEZ who flawlessly accommodated our switching rooms situation. We stayed in 4 different units and were impressed with them all! In addition, the breakfast was fantastic. The rooftop bar and their service was excellent. My only advice would be to be aware that the Grand Daddy is located on Long Street which can be sketchy in the evening so you will not want to wander very far in the evening. And maybe the hotel needs to change its carpet in the (super cool) elevator and stairwell. Starting to look a bit used and abused. Otherwise, no complaints! A fun place to stay!

Grand Daddy Airstream Trailer Winelands
We stayed in an Airstream Trailer Winelands, it was an amazing experience. Sky Bar right outside our door, Evans and his team was super. From arrival, porters were great, check in - front office team super friendly to house keeping, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Fabulous, would stay again!!! Location was so central. Wifi was very good.

bad location
It’s in a location that is very loud and not the nicest place you want to be walking at. The hotel itself was trendy and “clean” Wouldn’t stay there again because of the location.
