I eagerly returned to Old McDaddy with two other friends (we booked 3 trailers), but this is not the same place I stayed at 4 months ago! Restaurant service was VERY bad overall with a few exceptions here and there. I will send you a more detailed e-mail and I hope it is important enough to you to read my...

A fantastic two night stay in the Elgin valley. My son and I stayed in Daddy's Hideaway and the Dirkie Sanchez trailer and have tons of photos that show the pure joy on our faces exploring the property and activities! From archery and canoeing (Tyron is a legend) to sipping g n t's watching the sun go down. An awesome...

WOW!!! We couldn’t have been happier with our 2 night stay at Old Mac Daddy Farm…unless it had been for longer. We stayed here to avoid Cape Town during the busy bike race as recommended by our travel agent, but little did we know what would unfold in the next 48 hours. Tired from a busy trip down the Garden...

Unfortunately the service in The Barn wasn't great, we had to often go find a waiter ourselves, place orders with any staff member we found near the kitchen & waited ages for food. Breakfasts were supposed to end at 10am, by 09h15 on 2 of the days we were there, there was no toast, pastries etc left - we ordered...

We had lots of fun at Old Mac Daddy. The caravans were a blast and really fun, the rest was the way I like it - not overly complicated but well done. Clever touches, like the beach, all added to the experience. Extras and activities are expensive, and with a one night stay it was a pity the activities all...

A wonderful place to take kids. Even if you have only one night to stay here - grab it. I am not sure who was more excited - me or my 5 year old daughter. Great airstreams. The only feedback I would give is to warm the pool with solar power. It is a beautiful spot. And with stunning South...

Very fun getaway for the whole family, my kids enjoyed it most. Excellent service from front desk to restaurant staff. Beautiful place to escape the craziness of city life and get recharged and focused.

Within easy reach of Cape Town. Warm welcome. Great activities. Unique accommodation - great new luxury tented site for glampers. Good food. Local wines and craft beers make this a great break from the bustle of city life.

All good. More for older kids though. (5 and older) The stairs were a bit scary for the younger children and their parents. Great kiddies activities. Food was good. Service was a little slow in the morning though. But not too bad

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Part wholesome caravan park, part designer farm lodge, Old Mac Daddy Trailer Hotel is a new chapter in adventure, escapism and pure relaxation. Set on the pine-whispering slopes of a beautiful corner of the Elgin Valley, Old Mac Daddy is a collection of vintage Airstream Trailer Suites, each designed by an artist, designer or creative living and working in Cape Town. Fully catered and serviced; Old Mac Daddy offers trailer units with themed bedrooms and earth-friendly living spaces. A big designer barn is the communal area where all meals are served. Visit the Grolsch bar or take a dip in the swimming pool, explore the area or just relax. TRAILER SUITES Old Mac Daddy consists of ten trailer suites, two lake-side units and a family farm house - Daddy’s Villa. Each of our trailer suites is a world of its own. The Airstreams themselves have been transformed into bespoke bedrooms; each with its own theme, style and feeling from the magical to the quirky and a whole range of delicate and wonderful things in between. All but the lakeside suites, have additional living areas and decks, which allow for light-filled lounging (or use it as a kids bedroom) and time out. An en-suite bathroom with shower adds luxury to the experience making it a camping holiday like no other. Heated in winter, cooled in summer and cleverly insulated throughout, you will be sleeping way past the first cock-a-doodle-doo! THE BARN, RESTAURANT AND GROLSCH BARThis barn is more of an off-piste designer ski-lodge (without the snow, of course) boasting dramatic agrarian vistas and a vibe that says poolside in summer, fireside in winter. The indoor-outdoor Barn is where guests can enjoy healthy, wholesome meals, and treats throughout the day. Chef Siya Mnguni and restaurateur Gordon Manuel have composed a kitchen vision that centres around fresh, local ingredients and big appetites. Grolsch, the premium Dutch beer behind the sleek, magnetic Airstream, is also the creative force behind the world-class bar at the heart of the park. The large 13-metre bar makes a bold statement with its size and striking finishes. One of only a few to offer Grolsch draught, the bar is fitted with a stainless steel tap imported from Europe. Old Mac Daddy welcomes small people with an indoor-outdoor play area and a daily kiddies meal. Parents must take heed however that a pool and natural, unfenced lakes are a part of this landscape and children should be watched at all times. CONFERENCING & CELEBRATIONSA brilliant venue for conferences, meetings, pow-wows, retreats, celebrations and weddings – Old Mac Daddy can be rented entirely for functions or partially for meetings. A boardroom/conference area is located on the property (seats 20). Wireless broadband is available for those needing to get some work done. WHO IS IT FOR?Old Mac Daddy is for anyone who needs a break from the city. Anyone who wants to breathe fresh air, have apple juice run down their chin and swim in the farm dam and spend star-shot nights melting marshmallows over the fire. It’s for anyone who loves to take brisk walks in winter and then curl up in front of a cosy fire. Old Mac Daddy is for everyone. ... more   less
