Where do I start? My wife and I travelled to Carpe Diem after our trip from Australia and a hectic few days in New York. Previous reviews gave us a great expectation of what to expect, and we were not disappointed. The boys run an excellent b&b in a professional, friendly but non-intrusive style, which we feel would leave most... More

I have been a frequent guest of Carpe Diem and will continue to be well into the future. I like to visit Carpe Diem during the off season. There's an entirely different dynamic in Provincetown during the winter (and especially during a snow storm) which must be experienced. From the moment you check in, you are made to feel like...

Rainer, Jurgen, Hans, Herbie and the rest of the boys have made it so friendly, homely and welcoming that you feel like the honoured guest in their house. The whole place has a wonderful relaxed air. Jurgen's breakfasts are heavenly and the coffee is some of the best I've ever tasted. As I was travelling on my own I stayed... More

Really nice rooms and a welcoming atmosphere. Particularly loved Sam the cat with the rainbow collar! Breakfasts were also yummy. Would definitely recommend.

Hard to explain how exceptional Carpe Diem is... but it is my pleasure to try. Rainer, Jürgen and Hans were incredible hosts. The website is gorgeous but does not come close to relfecting the true beauty, the magic of this place. From the candle lit spa courtyard, to the freshly prepared ham and cheese crepes and esspresso... The experience left... More

I've been staying with these guys for over 10 years, and they run a beautiful operation - flawlessly decorated rooms, a warm and welcoming atmosphere, beautiful property, countless amenities - - well worth the price. I hate it when I have to stay anywhere else because I haven't planned enough in advance and they're booked up solid. Book in advance,... More

I travel quite a bit for work and have dealt with all sorts of hotels, inns, etc. Carpe Diem is beyond a doubt the nicest, cleanest, best organized, friendliest and simply the best hotel experience I have ever had. This was my first stay in Provincetown, and after dropping into a number of my other possible choices while there, I... More

Carpe Diem is a fantastic place that just keeps getting better. They have made the place bigger. It now has more guest rooms, a spa, with a sauna, steam room, and a massage room. They also made the outside gardens larger, and more spectacular. The staff is friendly, helpful and just a pleasue to be around. They do everything they... More

Stayed at Carpe Diem for Carnival 2007. Jurgen, Rainer, Hans, and Herbie all made us feel at home and made us feel like family. The breakfasts were great and the wine and cheese in the afternoon was an added plus. All the guests were great as well. Good luck with the new spa!
