Tiny trailer but great adventure
We had a great stay, accommodations were a bit tight in the trailer and should have opted for the larger trailer, unfortunately the larger air stream was not available. The bar closed at 9 during the week, I guess it’s winter season, but was much nicer when it stayed open late. Clean cool hotel and the restaurant/coffee house was awesome!

Long Street and Bree Street is a great location! Lots of bars and Restaurants to choose from. You are also right next to some great markets and the Big Red Bus stop! The rooftop bar was also a great place to sit and view table mountain whilst planning the next day. We were a family of 4 and stayed 5 nights in the Sugar Daddy suite. The staff and managers are exceptionally friendly and helpful... they cant do enough for you to make your stay perfect!

Unique and Worth it!
An amazing experience overall, we enjoyed the uniqueness of the venue and the vibe was true to the Longstreet name, we were welcomed and take up to our Caravan suite, my request for Champaign in the room was effectively executed, the staff helped us with all our needs and checked in on us every so often. You could see that there has been a decline in patronage though as the attention to cleanliness was not 100% but it wasn't a turn away, just a bit of attention is required to hotel wall corners. But nothing that would not stop us from going there again.
