Bon Hotels Takes Over Cape Town’s Grand Daddy


BON Hotels, the South African-based hospitality management group, has recently joined hands with the iconic Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel in Long Street.

Now known as the Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel by BON Hotels, this iconic city-centre establishment has been operating as a hotel since 1895. Previously known as the Metropole, it’s famous for its landmark Victorian architectural grandeur, its antique furnishings and elevator, its unique Rooftop Airstream Trailer Park and cinema, and the unconventional décor and vibe that is quintessentially Capetonian.

“It’s an honour for us to partner with this landmark hotel,” says Guy Stehlik, CEO of BON Hotels. “This is our second hotel in Cape Town, and we are looking forward to building the Grand Daddy legend. We know that international tourism is returning to South Africa and we are excited to be playing a role in putting the Grand Daddy back on the map.”


The Grand Daddy Boutique Hotel by BON Hotels is known for its unique accommodation experience, exceptional service and world-class hospitality. The new partnership is a step forward for both the hotel and the management company.
