Elgin / Grabouw in the Western Cape
Description of our establishment:
Old Mac Daddy was created for fun and relaxation – to be unfussy, unpretentious and not too serious about anything other than comfort, humor and the creation of good memories.
Whilst we are a Gold Loerie Award-winning project – and probably one of the more unusual hotels in the world – we are not a five star hotel. In fact, we have been told by the grading council that we can’t be graded because we don’t fit the mold!
Old Mac Daddy is the watermelon-chinned, pine-whispering holiday of your childhood. It’s the nostalgia of camping without the fuss, it’s a carefree escape to a spectacularly beautiful part of the world with all the creativity that Cape Town’s dynamic design community could infuse it with.
Orchards, vineyards, frog-song ponds and dusty mountain-bike roads abound.
We welcome you to enjoy the slow life with us; the warm drone of a bumble bee and the discovery of a creative storybook that finds harmony in the details and purity in design.
