For us this hotel had an excellent location and was close to all the restaurants and nightlife of Long Street, the Green Market Square as well as the African Threatre Show. The hotel staff were exceptional being very helpful and friendly answering a lot of questions we had with Cape Town. The breakfast you could order off the menu which was included and very good food.
I stayed in one of the suites in the hotel and food the room of a good size and the large double bed very comfortable - the airstram trailers on the roof were very quirky but really only suitable for a short stay. As they located on the roof where the most popular bar was the bar and music tended to close early - understandably. the weekly under the stars film night was a great idea and popular with visitors to the hotel. Food was excellent and I was very pleased with the personal service received during my stay. The hotel is situated very conveniently on Long Street right in the heart of the city. A great 10 days enjoyed at the Grand Daddy - I will hopefully return in the not too distant future.
The only complaint about the hotel is that they charged $35 USD to have an extra guest stay overnight and did not notify me prior to having my friends that I had met prior to this trip come and stay with me.
Other than this when I was moved to a two bedroom room with more space and the included breakfast I believe the cost and quality was sufficient.
It is located 2 blocks from the bus station, and few blocks (the other way) to V&A, and to the CCID. The city is doing a swell job of placing MANY police and security officers all around the CCID & the routes to the V&A daily from mid-morning until about 01:00 or so. This property is also close to the gay/pink district, and has safe, like...stumbling-safe, access to local pubs & nightlife. The food is excellent, and bellmen are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Brilliant location for all Cape Town has to offer, the staff could not have been more helpful. We used bars and restaruants around the hotel even at night and had no problems but we were a party of six.

The best location ever! It is literally right out front of the square, where there is a daily flea market. It is within walking distance of many many restaurants, shops, etc. The hotel is safe, clean, and it has free wifi. I would definitely stay here again!
When I arrived the hotel had no rooms available - not sure why they didn’t inform me in time but they made arrangements with a sister company to accommodate me. Although they slipped on advising me about this, they were overwhelmingly with arranging my alternative accommodation.
