Great service, nice people, amazing breakfast, nice and confortable rooms. Daniel and Chante helped a lot with tips for places to go. Dave neighborwood on a walking distance to Waterfront. We celebrated our engagement on the Lodge and We had a very romantic decoration room. Definitely a place to comeback.

Close to V&A Waterfront, we walked there in ca 15 mins. If you want to take a taxi its R50. But please upgrade TV-channels :) And there should be wifi...

We stayed at Carpe Diem for three nights at the end of a three week plus holiday. As this was a five star B&B we had high expectations. Positive points were the pool and surrounds, a peaceful place to relax in bustling Cape Town. The quality of the cooked breakfasts was also excellent when it arrived (see below). The coffee...

This Oasis in the city is not to be missed. Pampered by Chanté (Chantaine) and her team it couldn't be bettered. The team led by owner Daniel who is determined to be the best.
