A well appointed hotel in a great location
Posted Sep 6, 2016
I stayed at the Grand Daddy Hotel while attending an international conference in Capetown. I chose this hotel primarily because it was least expensive hotel/airfare combo available on Expedia at the time. With little in the way of expectations, I was very pleasantly surprised by the appointments of the room I was given, the extreme friendliness and helpfulness of the staff (who went out to find me a toothbrush and toothpaste as my luggage was late). The elevator, which was claimed to be the oldest in Capetown was functional as well as historic. The staff at the attached restaurant was equally friendly and helpful, and the menu was tasty and reasonably priced. Just the think after a long day at the conference center (well within walking distance along a main Capetown street) when jet lag argued against going out for a bite.
