pic 2Who says adults can’t have fun? If you are planning a holiday in Cape Town and you’re bored of the same old conventional hotels, you can spice up your trip by staying at one of these quirky accommodation choices.


The Grand Daddy Hotel:

The Grand Daddy Hotel turns trashy in classy. It is situated in Long Street and has a great individual style that truly sets it apart from the rest. Visitors can enjoy a night in one of the hotel’s Airstream trailers that have been hoisted onto the roof and transformed into penthouses.

The Nu Rock Inn:

The Nu Rock Inn is heaven for sports enthusiasts. The inn consists of 10 sports-themed, luxury self-catering apartments and is close to Cape Town’s beautiful beaches. The lobby is decorated with 1950’s furnishings and designs, and visitors can enjoy playing games like pinball, snooker, poker, table tennis and foosball.  Each apartment is exclusively unique with retro designs and your own personal game such as foosball or pinball to keep you entertained in your room during your stay.

Teniqua Treetops:

The Teniqua Treetops resort is situated a few hours outside of Cape Town in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains and offers visitors the opportunity to stay in their own tree house! These tree house tents have all the modern amenities you need and are spaced far apart from one another for complete privacy.

The Daddy Long Legs Hotel:

Walking into the Daddy Long Legs Hotel in Long Street is like walking into an interactive art exhibition.  Every room is an artwork, where a designer, painter, musician, poet or photographer has been given free rein to design the living space as they please. Each room is peculiar, energetic and bold, representing Cape Town’s modern cultural diversity at its best.

The Dutch Manor Antique Hotel:

Keen to go back in time? Then the Dutch Manor Antique Hotel is the place for you! This hotel is South Africa’s only registered antique hotel and dates back to 1812. It has been restored back to its original glory and redecorated to enhance the vintage feel of the place. Go to sleep on a genuine, 19th century, four-poster stink-wood bed while you dream of your next adventure.
