Diamond House was the first place we stayed in all of South Africa. We just went over the new year and had a great experience! It is in the perfect location- far enough from the downtown to feel safe, yet close enough to everything we wanted to do. The staff there were very helpful and made sure our stay was...

Nicely decorated large room with air conditioning. The only thing that may help would be thicker curtains for later lie-ins – not that it bothered us as we were up early. Breakfast room had a lovely view over Camps Bay and Lion's Head. Good selection on the buffet breakfast followed by eggs and bacon. The smallish swimming pool area has...

The diamond house is a fantastic place to stay as a base to explore Cape Town. It is beautifully decorated and presented and had a spectacular location at the foot of table mountain overlooking the ocean. The ladies that run the hotel are incredibly helpful. A taxi down to the delicious restaurants in camps bay around £1!

I was disappointed with my stay at Diamond House, and a number of aspects need improvement - unfortunately due to time constraints I could not share my problems with the owners at the time I was there: 1. TV – Only 5 free-to-air channels available in the room – and if you know South African TV, you will know this...

Really enjoyed my stay with Diamond Guest House. Was greeted by owner who patiently waited for my late check in. My room was big and comfortable with a breath-taking view of the ocean. The room itself is spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and wait for it ----- equipped with under floor heating!! The bath room is also almost the same size...

A 4 minute car ride to the beach and commercial centre of Camps Bay, this property has super views both 'up' to the mountains and 'down' to the sea ! Welcoming management, good facilities and comfortable rooms (albeit dire TV service - let's get proper DSTV installed please). Hearty breakfast ! Fit-for-purpose swimming pool and good sun deck complete with...

Nestled below the mountainside with superb sea views from the roof terrace. Rooms are well furnished and clean with an excellent breakfast. You'll need a car to get anywhere from here and is, like most places in and around the area, very hilly so not conducive to walking or strolling. Parking at the house or off-road. Hosts Sigge and Heather...

I did not enjoy my stay at Diamond Guest House and advise you not to stay there. Firstly, the location is not practical unless you have a car. It's a good 30 minute walk to the beach area (where the restaurants and shops are). Walking back would take even longer as it's all uphill. There is a local bus, but...

The location of this Guest House is just perfect: a few minutes drive down to Camps Bay (if you absolutely have to go there?) and 10 minutes to central Cape Town, also during the Christmas Holiday season. Parking just outside the house. Very friendly and helpful welcome by the hostess Sigge. We loved the rooms and the pool area, with...
