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

A 4 minute car ride to the beach and commercial centre of Camps Bay, this property has super views both 'up' to the mountains and 'down' to the sea ! Welcoming management, good facilities and comfortable rooms (albeit dire TV service - let's get proper DSTV installed please). Hearty breakfast ! Fit-for-purpose swimming pool and good sun deck complete with... More

Nestled below the mountainside with superb sea views from the roof terrace. Rooms are well furnished and clean with an excellent breakfast. You'll need a car to get anywhere from here and is, like most places in and around the area, very hilly so not conducive to walking or strolling. Parking at the house or off-road. Hosts Sigge and Heather... More

I did not enjoy my stay at Diamond Guest House and advise you not to stay there. Firstly, the location is not practical unless you have a car. It's a good 30 minute walk to the beach area (where the restaurants and shops are). Walking back would take even longer as it's all uphill. There is a local bus, but... More

The location of this Guest House is just perfect: a few minutes drive down to Camps Bay (if you absolutely have to go there?) and 10 minutes to central Cape Town, also during the Christmas Holiday season. Parking just outside the house. Very friendly and helpful welcome by the hostess Sigge. We loved the rooms and the pool area, with... More

I'm just finishing a 10 day stay at this B&B, which in fact is much more than a B&B. The physical infrastructure is about 3.5-4.0 star with nice rooms, cleaned daily, beautiful dining and outside seating areas, including a small swimming pool, also cleaned daily. The location in Camps Bay is excellent and just 10-15 minutes by taxi (about $5)... More

The Diamond Guest House is THE place to stay in Cape Town. It is a very friendly, clean, quiet and has a wonderful view. Thanks again to Helga and her team.

The location of this guest house is amazing. You have a great view of Camps Bay and Lion's head. The guest house is nice and clean and has very comfortable beds in spacious rooms. Service is excellent and management is very helpful when booking restaurants and trips. Breakfast is good quality but varied.
