Very well located, great attention to detail,clean, must stay again! Staff and management were terrific. A lovely old building that has been renovated to a very high standard that also has a secluded pool and outdoor area which was nice to relax in after a day playing tourist. The lodge is located only a short walk to the V.A Waterfront... More

We booked 3 nights @Cape Diem after 7 years returning to the same hotel @ Seapoint. Cape Diem really is a great lodge. The location is centrally located and safe to reach at night. The house is very well looked after and personnel is friendly. Do remember this is an old building where every now and then "historic" noises (cracking... More

This guest house is very well located because on the one hand it's in a quiet street and on the other hand close to the Waterfront and the City Center. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful in giving advise or recommendations. The interior of the Lodge is very classy and you can definitely see that Daniel (owner) put a... More

Thank you, for an absolutely lovely stay. You made me feel welcome just from taking my reservation. On arriving it was even better one cannot imagine the hospitality. The rooms that walks out onto the pool is a must. For the coffee lovers very nice coffee machines and chocolates in the room and the bath was to die for. Thank... More

The lodge has been re-painted and upgraded, the staff is always very friendly and helpful and the owners are very charming and simply delightful. Great service, beautiful rooms with many little touches that really make... More

I stayed at Cape Diem for 2 nights and throughly enjoyed myself. The bed is super comfortable that after a long day of sightseeing, as soon as my head hit the pillow, I was asleep. The rooms are lovely decorated and the extra touches (treats on the pillow each night) were definately appreciated. Breakfast is quite a spread with a... More

The Cape Diem Lodge is an absolute out of this world experience, the service is outstanding, the owner and his staff are more then willing toasts in the most friendliest and helpful manor I ever experienced. The location is excellent, central but still tranquil and relaxing. The rooms are modern and with the clique of a designer that will let... More

I stayed at the Lodge for about 8 nights over the new year period with my sister, brother-in-law and parents and we all had a fabulous experience. Daniel and Alexandra are wonderful hosts who can’t do enough to ensure you are well looked after. As we occupied 3 of the 5 rooms it often felt like we were staying at... More
