I booked the top room at the Grand Daddy, the Grand Daddy suite for what it was meant to be a great start to our South African holiday over NYE. When we arrived we were told that due to an error in the booking system and with Expedia we wouldn’t get the suite we had booked, but a superior room (which turned out to be a standard room, one of those overlooking the internal courtyard). The other option would’ve been a cancellation and refund - and good luck in finding a room on 31st December! When we told the manager we weren’t happy she responded that the difference between the cost of the GD suite and a superior (standard!) room was only about €20. Wrong as they sell those rooms for about €100 less. They tried to come up with goodwill gestures (a meal at their restaurant which we had no use for as we had already booked places for our lunches and dinners) and free parking which we ended paying ourselves as they ran out of prepaid parking tickets. When I wrote to them after our trip complaining they simply ignored my email. Terrible terrible customer service in spiate of the fact it’s a nice hotel and nice staff. But don’t bother booking expensive rooms over there as you’re unlikely to get them anyway. Expedia was useless at resolving our problem and I’m not even sure what the point of booking through them is since they leave you to your own devices should a problem arise. Terrible experience with Expedia too.

It is a beautiful boutique hotel located in the heart of Cape Town's dining and nightlife district where you can easily walk to great restaurants and music venues. The hotel is an elegant Victorian structure with a great restaurant and rooftop bar where entertainment is also provided form time to time. Airstream trailers on the roof act as wonderful suites, each with they own sitting area and garden. The staff is extrememly friendly personable and attentive to all the guest needs. A truly wonderful experience and a place we will return to whenever we visit Cape Town.
