Loved my stay. The lodge is a redecorated historic house and is done beautifully. It's an oasis of calm, tranquil, design heaven in a central location. Room was fabulous and bathroom to die for. Nice mini bar and nespresso and radio. Local TV is terrible but that's not Cape Diem's fault! Pool too cold in winter for a swim but... More

We had a great stay at Cape Diem Lodge. Perfect location in Green Point area. Short walk to Waterfront and many great restaurants. Staff was attentive and welcoming, and site is very secure. We were there during winter so unfortunately were not able to take advantage of the lovely pool area. Breakfast was great. Internet worked well and was fast.... More

Very warm welcome from the Deputy Manager when we arrived. Breakfasts were great - continental and hot breakfast. The lodge is absolutely beautiful, really luxurious inside the hallway and lounge. We made good use of the lounge, as wifi was too weak usually in our room. Room itself was large and spacious, massive and very comfortable bed. Bathroom is pretty... More

The location of Carpe Diem Lodge is ideal -- we could quickly jump on the N1 or N2 to get anywhere by car. Staff members were solicitous and helpful, easily remembering guests' breakfast preferences and anticipating their needs. The room itself was spacious and comfortable, with a giant bathtub that took the sting out of long hikes.

spacious room and convenient to everything, but it's below my expectation for a 5-star B&B. I walked to V&A from the lodge and it only took 10 minutes. There're a lot restaurants around. However the breakfast is just so-so and I only saw three people working here.

Not surprisingly, Cape Diem Lodge delivers on all fronts. Beautifully renovated Victorian Mansion serves well as a luxury retreat. We stayed in the brand new annex. The room was a delight to the eyes, bright breezy, modern yet sophisticated. Checking in was an effortless affair, welcomed by delightful staff. A brief tour and then to the room, crisp linen on...

Beautiful guesthouse in green point, within a five minute walk of a supermarket and restaurants. It is about a ten minute walk to the V&A waterfront and it is very easy to get a taxi back.

A lovely end to our honeymoon. It was peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. The service was brilliant from when we arrived to when we left. A complimentary large glass of wine and beer for my husband and I were offered when we arrived, which was much needed after our long drive. The design of the room was really interesting. It was...
