We stayed 2 nights and had a beautiful room with every amenity you could think of. Very friendly hosts. Simple but quality breakfast. The lodge is very well positioned in Green Point. Highly recommended.

Cape Diem Lodge was the perfect start of our amazing journey through South Africa. We spent three nights at the Cape Diem Lodge and enjoyed it to the full. We arrived earlier than expected and our room was still occupied. But that wasn't a problem at all since we had the opportunity to freshen up in a separate room. Thus,... More

Gorgeous accomodation in a very central location for the city and restaurants. Daniel and Alexandra could not have been more helpful allowing us an early check in and use of the facilities till we headed to the airport for a 9 pm flight. We had a wonderful time.

Had a three day visit to Cape Diem Lodge and, despite it being in the dead of winter, the warmth of the proprietors, Alexandra and Daniel, a most memorable experience, each going out of their way to help us enjoy our Cape Town experience. The Lodge itself is charming and so very close to the Waterfront [we walked to the... More

Martinique and the team were absolutely wonderful. We showed up early from the airport, and we expected to just drop our bags off. Martinique made us feel very welcome and made us tea and coffee and even though we were early and interrupting their cleaning, she was attentive friendly and welcoming. Cape Diem has a clean, neat minimalist design and... More

We arrived at 9 oclock, earlier than the check in time but they still managed to have cleaned the rooms in order for us to check in early. The rooms were huge and very clean, with big comfortable beds. The breakfast buffet provided everything you could want for a breakfast, with a nice seating area on the patio. Would definetely...

Alexandra and Daniel, and their lovely staff, looked after us very well. We loved our enormous room, and delicious breakfast on the terrace. The garden is beautiful. We did not try the pool, as it was too cold in late April. Coming back at the end of the day it was nice to help ourselves to the huge pitchers of... More
