The Grand Daddy Hotel off Long Street in Cape Town has become something of a landmark since the former Metropole Hotel was converted into what is termed ‘a fashion hotel’ with a rooftop trailer park. Each of the Grand Daddy’s Airstream Penthouse Trailers is air-conditioned and has an en suite bathroom. The classic trailers were sourced in the USA by the developers, Jody Aufrichtig and Nicholas Ferguson, along with others in the team, Stefan Botha, Sergio Dreyer and Francois van Binsbergen. The rooftop also features a mini-outdoor cinema and a residents’ bar beneath a freeform tent where guests can relax. The revamp of the hotel was the work of interior stylist Tracy Lynch and each trailer on the rooftop was custom designed by individual Cape Town designers.
