The Grand Daddy Hotel has recently opened in the centre of Cape Town, with a twist on the boutique hotel experience in the shape of a rooftop trailer park. The park consists of seven vintage Airstream trailers customised by local artists and are available for guests to stay in. Each of the polished chrome trailers sleep two people, and are embellished with design themes that include, among others, polka dots and The Three Bears. The trailers customisation provides all the facilities (including bathrooms) required for the hotel to earn a 4 Star hotel rating.

The Grand Daddy Hotel is owned by Daddy Long Legs Group who also run an art hotel on the same street (each room is also customised by a local artist). The video tour below features the work of Mark and Joe Stead who used the Three Bears (from Goldilocks) as inspiration. The level of detail even goes down to post-it notes, drawings and other personal objects “left behind” by the bears.
