There’s nothing ordinary about going all the way to the United States of America to source seven vintage Airstream trailers, and then hauling them back across the Atlantic and hoisting them onto the roof of an urban hotel. Then again, there’s nothing ordinary about the Grand Daddy.
Take the Daddy’s vintage elevator to our rooftop location in famous Long Street and soak in the alluring outline of Table Mountain as reflected in the polished aluminium of one of our seven trailers.
The seven recently renovated trailers, complete with US Postal Service mailboxes, all have their own individual decor and style, and collectively they reflect the "South African road trip". Drawing inspiration from around Mzansi, our trailers give you a chance to experience different parts of our beautiful country, right here on the roof … and they may even inspire you to go and visit these places for real!
Yep, those unmistakably South African vistas have climbed right into the trailers. Each one is as unique as the South African landscape that it encapsulates and each has a story to share.
Airstream trailers are incredible works of craftsmanship and their classic shape is unforgettable. Each Airstream trailer has a queen-size bed, wet room with a shower, and modern comforts like TV, aircon and fridges. Our trailer suite called Winelands is the largest of the Airstream trailers and has an open-plan bedroom with a big lounge area.
