Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2015

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 and toilet so it's a bit open but if you can get past that it's a beautiful place I would stay again

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 walking distance to the V&A (although a taxi was cheap and the hotel could call it and probably the safest option at night)
The staff were excellent and nothing was any trouble. The owner Daniel was friendly and made us feel very welcome.When we visit Cape Town again (which is almost certain, God willing) we shall not hesitate to stay here. A little Gem indeed!

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 precinct where there is so much to explore. It's also a short walk to cape towns new sport stadium The lodge is in a quiet little cul de sac which means it is very quiet yet only 100mtrs to main road where all the fun of cape town begins. The lodge is also very safe with a night secrity dude there all night. Staff happy to book wine tours table mountain tours or just advise on all things cape town. Do yourselves a favour and book here

Room Tip: We had front room which was beautiful but a little noise from other guests entering and leaving but...
