The lodge was beautiful, very relaxing and tranquil at a convenient central location. The staff was great and took good care of us during our stay, making us feel at home and helping us find good restaurants and other must-visit spots.

Loved this place the staff are great there is a friendly guard on at night there to help and watch over the property. The breakfast is amazing only a 5 minute walk to the waterfront with heaps of shopping and food. Some nice restaurants down the street also. My only gripe is there is no door between bedroom and shower... More

After checking on safety of area with South African friends we booked Cape Diem Lodge for 3 night stay in Capetown recently. Great choice. Beautifully renovated lodge containing 5 suites - well manicured grounds, great service, fantastic breakfast, close to V & A waterfront. Would definitely love to stay there again & would thoroughly recommend lodge to friends.

We stayed for 4 nights prior to Easter and have to say what a super little hotel this is. So much so we had a further night later on in our holiday in Cape Town (after doing the Garden Route) prior to our airport departure and decided to stay at Cape Diem Lodge again. It was comfortable, clean and within... More

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

This is now the 2nd time in two years we have spent 7 days at Cape Diem and it was even better than last time. 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
