Uniquely Different Cape Town Hotels

When travelling on business or pleasure your choice of accommodation is an important aspect to consider. Cape Town has a wide variety of exceptional hotels that range from small family run guest houses to large international chains. Here are 4 of the best hotels with a difference.

Grand Daddy Camping

If you are looking to stay somewhere totally unique then you cannot beat the Grand Daddy Hotel. Positioned in the heart of Cape Town the Grand Daddy is like no other hotel in the city. Yes, it has fabulous rooms and suites all fitted to the highest possible standards but it also has something no other hotel offers. While many hotels place a bar or restaurant on the roof of their building, a friendly and social place to hang out and take in the stunning city views, the Grand Daddy has this PLUS a number of Airstream Trailers on the roof.

Seven US Airstream Trailers have found their way to the roof of this city hotel. Each is fully equipped to international hotel standards and each has its own theme! Whether it be the Winelands, a safari or an urban look you seek, you will find it within these unique trailers.

The best view of the City - in the City

A little outside the City of Cape Town is a large 4-star hotel. The Lagoon Beach Hotel sits on the Milnerton beach and has what is the only uninterrupted view across Table Bay of Table Mountain. Perfectly positioned, the hotel is popular, amongst many other things, because of its view. This is often missed because the hotel sits on the outskirts of the city.  The hotel has rooms, suites and even timeshare available, a breakfast area and bar lead out to a pool area and there in front of you is the majestic Table Mountain beckoning you to sit and admire the view as you sip your cappuccino or glass of Cape wine. If you enjoy sunsets, then Lagoon Beach Hotel is the place for you. With a full spa and restaurant and café, Lagoon Beach Hotel is very much a best-kept secret.

Absolute Romance

If you want to show someone how much you love them, or just show off, Pinard on Sea, next door to the world famous On the Rocks in Blouberg is the place stay. Considered one of the most romantic places to stay, Pinard on Sea is a luxury guest house on a private beach with amazing views of Table Mountain. Pinard on Sea epitomises romance, elegance and luxury while also offering privacy and surrounded by natural beauty.

Pinard on Sea easily has the best views in the world, it is a small boutique hotel where attention to detail matters and your stay is the most important thing. No matter what your reason for staying is, at Pinard on Sea you will feel truly taken care of.

For the love of Art

Finally, the sister hotel to the Grand Daddy is for the art lover. The Daddy Long Legs Art Hotel is quirky, quaint and for some even questionable! Daddy Longlegs is an art lovers dream, a hotel inspired by art to deliver a fresh, friendly and unique place to stay. Daddy Longlegs is very much like staying in a museum or exhibition house.  Nestled on the bustling Long Street, Daddy Longlegs is in the centre of Cape Town. A truly amazing place to stay Daddy Longlegs is completely fresh and something like no other hotel in South Africa. Daddy Longlegs is a 13 room art hotel, each room is themed and each theme can and does change. Staying in Daddy Longlegs will be something truly memorable.

Bronze Whaler Shark feeding on a sardine bait ball
My Sardine Run experience

by Petrus Jacobus van der Walt February 24, 2022

Summary of the sardine run,

This the biggest of animal migrations in the world. The sardine run, is totally wild unpredictable event, that when it all comes together, as it does for three months annually, the sardine run is the most spectacular wildlife spectacle on the planet; dolphins, seals and whales whip the ocean surface into whitecaps, thousands of birds diving, whales lunge feeding through shoals scattering the fish. It is a twilight zone where time stands still and becomes meaningless, as you witness this amazing play of life and death unfolding.

If you are looking for a real African experience and adventure diving at its best, you’re unlikely to be disappointed!
