For mums in Cape Town, the Grand Daddy Hotel is devoting the entire weekend to Mother’s Day.

On Sunday, the Grand Daddy is serving two special Mother’s Day lunches – choose between a three-course set menu or three-course buffet lunch.
On Monday 14 May there will be a special Mother’s Day screening of Mamma Mia at the Grand Daddy – with the option to include a gourmet picnic or a sleepover in the Trailer Suite.
