Amazing location with super friendly staff.Posted Jun 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
My wife and I stayed for four nights here and it surpassed our expectations. It's location can't be beat. Within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront and one block from Main St., which means hundreds of restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, markets, etc.. The place is a guest-house with really cozy minimalist desig. Our room was big,comfortable and really appealing to the eyes. Attention to details are impecable. The only downside (and it has been mentioned here before) was the toilet: The shower and toilet areas share the same sliding glass door, though the shower also has a curtain. If you slide the door to the toilet area it gets really tight so much so that your knees will bump the door. However, I consider this nothing more than a minor inconvenience in an otherwise fantastic stay. They have a pool, terrace loung area, living room with books, to relax or you can bring your bottle and enjoy the sunset. The breakfast was great too. Since the moment we arrived the staff was very attentive to our every need. I 100% recommend this hotel for couples vacationing in Cape Town.

A gem right near the V&A waterfrontPosted Jun 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
If you were to walk but Cape Diem, you probably wouldn't notice it, but once instead its gates, you'll realize you've happened upon a hidden gem in the middle of Cape Town! Built inside an old farmhouse (the floors and ceilings are all original), but B&B is as charming as it is clean. The owner is great and so are all of the staff. the location is within (safe!) walking distance to the V& A waterfront and to Cape Town Central (if you want to walk off your delicious breakfast). Great value for a great place!

Helpful staff and attractive locationPosted Mar 17, 2014
Pros: The peace in a city centre, proximity to the V&A and casual restaurants, cafes etc.
We wanted to stay in a quiet location, close to the central business district and V&A. This fitted our requirements perfectly.

Good hotel in a good areaPosted Nov 30, 2013
Pros: Where it is situated and staff are great
Cons: everything is spotless and not much if anything needs changing
Location: At the bottom of the road are bars and restuarants and about a 10 min walk is the V&A waterfront
Hotel is in a great area with only a 10 min walk to the V&A waterfront were all the trips and restuarants are situated. Hotel owners and staff cannot do enough for you if you have any problems or need some advise on trips and where to eat they will tell you where to go and book everything for you.

A welcome change to large hotelsPosted Jul 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Arriving in Cape Town late at night after 16 hours of flights it was great to have them meet me at the airport, include a glass of wine as part of the check, and the sandwiches I'd arranged with them for when I checked in were delicious. Staff is very friendly and willing to help with everything. Breakfasts and coffee fantastic. I enjoyed the atmosphere of it being a smaller place, spending time in the common areas in the evenings instead of my own room. All sorts of small attention to details, like the afternoon tea and jugs of water left out. Location is pretty good, being a short walk to V&A. The only problem was the rooms, while generally being pretty clean, didn't have clean floors - they failed the bare foot test with my feet always ending up covered in dust and dirt.

Great location great servicePosted Jul 12, 2013
Pros: Location and design of of rooms
I picked Cape Diem based on the very positive comments on Tripadvisor. The place is a wonderful retreat for staying in Cape Town. The staff is very friendly and helpful in any aspects. I stayed at the place for five nights and felt like home. Internet and parking was important to me and both needs were very well accommodated.

We loved our stay at Cape Diem Lodge. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed, our room was very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was delicious each day. Perfect location for branching off to explore Cape Town and hope to stay here again in the future!

Great place to stayPosted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: The room set up, location and service
Cons: after hours availability of staff
Location: Very convenient and a nice neighbourhood. about 2kms away from V&A waterfront, nice walk on a sunny day
Overall an amazing place. Great staff and a cozy room. Loved every bit of it. We were on our honeymoon, and I couldn't have chosen a better hotel/lodge to stay than this.
