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.

We rented a car to stay for nights in Cape Town, so we chose to stay near the beach, at Camps Bay. It couldn't be a best choice! Helga and Sigi are always nice, trying to help at any time. The Guest House is really good, the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is very good. And it is close to... More

Gudrun Germany Diamond House is a place to relax, a nature garden is surrounding the house. You have a beautiful view to the ocean and on the backside you can see the twelve Apostles, table mountain and lions head.
