While the classic rooms of The Grand Daddy Hotel are just lovely, you really ought to ask for the key to one of seven vintage Airstream trailers parked on the roof.
Each has its own style, from the ‘Grape Escape', with its wine-inspired scenery, to the ‘Gold Rush', ‘Bloomin' Daisies', or any of the others, all of which illustrate aspects of South African history and heritage. No matter which option you choose, you will fall asleep in the comfort of a real vintage trailer. Continuing the theme of the road, every Monday night the hotel organises ‘drive-in' evenings, with an outdoor cinema on the rooftop.
You will have a front row seat for the 8:00 p.m. show as long as you reserve on the Internet or at the front desk. On other nights, enjoy a drink at the Daddy Cool bar in a comfortable white armchair. You'll feel cool indeed.
