Celebrates The

Creative Spirit

It all started from humble beginnings, one simple idea. Offer travelers, spacious, creative, spotless and good value accommodation. Obtaining all these goals together isn’t easy nor is it the norm in the travel industry.

Then again our guests aren’t one to follow the beaten path. They are independent, creative, forward thinking travelers who don’t want to stay in another regular hotel room in another regular city on another regular holiday.

The Daddy Long Legs concept began with the original Daddy Long Legs Self Catering Apartments, located at number 263 Long Street. The five Self Catering apartments proved so successful that owners Jody Aufrichtig and Nicholas Ferguson decided to expand the concept with a second Daddy Long Legs, also positioned in Long Street, above The African Music Store, number 134 Long Street.

Funky Affordable


Daddy Long Legs is a dream project and yet creative expression has not diluted the necessity for comfort and rest. “It’s about funky, affordable accommodation”, says Aufrichtig. He adds that Daddy Long Legs is, “ a place where you can meet people, have fun whilst you are at it, and – get an awesome night’s rest. Staying at the Daddy Long Legs gives you the opportunity to absorb the creative spirit of Cape Town without leaving your room, so just lie back and enjoy!”

As an independent travellers hotel, Daddy Long Legs will appeal to those seeking an authentic experience of Cape Town. It is a place to meet others and it is ideally situated for exploring the character and nightlife of the city and it’s surrounds. In much the same way, Daddy Long Legs will be a welcome respite for the local businessperson tired of sterile hotel environments.
