It is set is the most perfect location in Cape Town I was close to everything you need to enjoy yourself whilst on holiday from the beach, restaurants, shopping, nightlife and 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

Absolutely incredible Guest house! The Service and hospitality is of the highest standards and being situated near all the main attractions in Cape Town, it makes for the perfect stay.

Stayed for 2 nights on a whistlestop tour of Cape Town. Really lovely little hotel tucked up a quiet street but walking distance to some great bars and restaurants on Somerset road and not far from the V & A waterfront too. Simple finished comfortable rooms with nice touches including free wifi and a nespresso machine in room (milk cartons... More

This place offers astonishing value for money. Very good service offered particularly by Marty for whom nothing seemed too much trouble. The rooms were clean and comfortable and even when a water main burst Daniel appeared almost instantly with solutions - although sadly we had none of the delicious cooked breakfast that day! Our only criticism was that we were... More

We stayed for three nights at Cape Diem Lodge at the end of November and were a little disappointed especially after reading all its good reviews. Perhaps we were just hard to please. We had booked our room in January so when we arrived were surprised that the room we were given had a bed platform with a ladder up... More

We stayed at the Cape Diem Lodge in November for 5 nights. Alexandra, Daniel, Martinique and all the staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful....Cape Diem soon feels like 'home from home'. The rooms are beautifully appointed, and have everything you could require. The deco of the public rooms is fresh and contemporary, breakfast is served on the terrace by... More
