We recently stayed at Diamond Guest House for 3 nights and had the best time. I needed an extra bed in our room for my brother and Helga was so kind to arrange all of this for me. Nothing I asked for was too much and they were so accommodating with everything. The views from the pool are stunning, the... More

Dear Helga We had a really great stay at your Guest House and one of the best stops on our trip through South Africa! The rooms were really nice, spacy and clean. We enjoyed staying there surrounded by the sea and a stunning view of the table mountain. The Diamond Guest House is a good starting point to visit Cape... More

Booked the premium suite with sea view, really worth it , elegant, spotless with comfortable bed and beautiful views over Camps Bay and Table Mountain towering behind. Lovely breakfast with good choice of hot and cold food. We used Hylton travel for tours around... More

Diamond House was the first place we stayed in all of South Africa. We just went over the new year and had a great experience! It is in the perfect location- far enough from the downtown to feel safe, yet close enough to everything we wanted to do. The staff there were very helpful and made sure our stay was... More

Nicely decorated large room with air conditioning. The only thing that may help would be thicker curtains for later lie-ins – not that it bothered us as we were up early. Breakfast room had a lovely view over Camps Bay and Lion's Head. Good selection on the buffet breakfast followed by eggs and bacon. The smallish swimming pool area has... More

The diamond house is a fantastic place to stay as a base to explore Cape Town. It is beautifully decorated and presented and had a spectacular location at the foot of table mountain overlooking the ocean. The ladies that run the hotel are incredibly helpful. A taxi down to the delicious restaurants in camps bay around £1!

I was disappointed with my stay at Diamond House, and a number of aspects need improvement - unfortunately due to time constraints I could not share my problems with the owners at the time I was there: 1. TV – Only 5 free-to-air channels available in the room – and if you know South African TV, you will know this... More

very nice rooms well equipped. We had a large superior garden rooms with own terrasse. Good beds and very quiet at night. Very close to table mountain (6 minutes by car). Fantastic view onto the sea in a nice garden setting. Free parking on site. Also free internet and free welcome drinks.

Really enjoyed my stay with Diamond Guest House. Was greeted by owner who patiently waited for my late check in. My room was big and comfortable with a breath-taking view of the ocean. The room itself is spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and wait for it ----- equipped with under floor heating!! The bath room is also almost the same size... More
