    The Grand Daddy is a "funky" hotel housed in one of Cape Town's beautiful old buildings right on the hip Long Street, that gives the choice of staying in a normal modern hotel room or for the more adventurous - a genuine but refurbished Airstream caravan on the hotel's roof. We did both, but decided to swap the caravan for a proper room after one night because we wanted a real bathroom and because there was a funny smell that probably came from undrained water stuck under the camper. Apart from the caravan village, the roof also has a nice outdoor bar and a space that alternates as music stage, dinner party space and outdoor cinema showing great old American b/w movies. Very nice! Pretty good restaurant on ground floor. Friendly confusion

    A little TLC wouldn't hurt to bring standard back to what it probably was when the hotel opened. Tiles in caravan bathroom looked a bit sad. Bad smell outside caravan. Glass door in room made terrible racket when swung open or shut. Wireless internet was extremely slow and a waste of money. Breakfast was not included in price and seemed to cost differently every day. Windows in Sugar Daddy Suite faced brick wall full of bird poop. Would have expected a view for that price.
