Stay here if you want fantastic views of Table Mountain and the ocean from an elevated position. The location is great for access to many tourist spots in Cape Town and also relatively safe location. Also the generaly vibe is excellent and John is a great host (however he is not always present and we found his offsider to be a different matter). Don't know about all the rooms but avoid the Pool Suite which we found to be lacking in privacy and the lack of air conditioning or an overhead fan meant hot sweaty, sleepless nights. We were able to beg a rotating fan which provided some relief. The lack of some conveniences such as the provision shampoo and conditioner (only bath gel provided) was very surprising. Car parking was also limited.

Highly recommended guest house in Camps Bay (mind you the majority of them are fantastic) the position and views at Diamond House are excellent and it is exactly as described on the website. We had a gorgeous sea view suite. Can't think of a down side really except it was so hot we could have done with AC! Was good value compared to some of the other guest houses we enquired about. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful place, stunning views (never bettered throughout whole holiday!) and great,friendly people.
John and his staff are welcoming, informed and helpful. Everything we needed was provided, including travel plugs, insect repellant and beach towels.
Wanted to stay longer, if not for good.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in South Africa. Stayed for five nights in Camp Bay, then travelled on to Stellenbosh, Kysna, then Game Reserve outside Port Elizabeth. The best accommodation we stayed in (and not the most expensive) was Diamond House Guest House. Everything was perfect, from our welcome from John the owner, the breakfasts, accommodation etc etc. Nothing was too much trouble for him, excellent recommendations on where to go, restaurants, where to park tips. Such a relaxing and pleasant stay. We knew that moving on to a large inpersonal hotel was going to be so different. John had such high standards such as fruit in the rooms, tea-making equipment, bath robes, even a first aid box in each room. Rooms were so big and bright, beds large and comfortable.

We had two ajoining "garden rooms" which had a sun deck outside to sunbath on, very private a real unexpected bonus. All the other rooms seemed to have their own unique selling points.
