The accommodation was excellent, a large room with a private balcony with views over Camps Bay, the pool and Lion's Head. Even the bathroom had a lovely aspect! Breakfast was varied, with eggs...

Nothing I asked for was too much and they were so accommodating with everything. The views from the pool are stunning, the...

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!
