We wanted a relaxing quiet weekend getaway, but it simply did not happen. We had a very nice large room, especially for a Provincetown guesthouse. The Staff were all very nice and helpful. The problem was
our room faced directly onto the whirlpool tub. The rulebook left in the guestrooms clearly state that the hours for the tub are 9AM to 9PM (in bold lettering). We were already in bed at 10:00PM, when at 11:00PM, a group of very loud guests decided to take a whirpool. They were laughing, and talking extremely loud, and were out in the tub for 45 minutes, almost to midnight. We went to call the front desk, however, the desk closed at 9PM. There should be a sign posted over the tub with the hours, or the guesthouse should lock the cover at closing time, which would have prevented other guests from utilizing the tub. A nice quiet relaxing weekend was ruined. There are some many guesthouses in Provincetown to choose from. We will not be coming back to stay at Carpe Diem.

CarpeDiemGuesthouse, Owner at Carpe Diem Guesthouse & Spa, responded to this reviewResponded 12 April 2007

We are very sorry for the negative experience this guest had during his stay.
We have connected a new building to our guesthouse and are in the process of adding a Spa for our guests with Massage room, Finish Sauna & Hamam. The hot tub that caused the disturbance is being moved to this new spa location and was for that reason not in it's usual condition.
Unfortunately some guests do not respect the privacy of others or guidelines laid out by the management and are not considerate enough to lower the volume during evening hours.
Even though our front desk is closed after 9pm we do have a night manager on site that can be reached by a number posted in several places in our guest rooms. It would have been easy for the guests to either call the manager and have him settle the situation or simply open the door to their cottage and ask the fellow guests to quiet down.
We do everything to exceed our guests expectations and apologize for any inconvenience caused by trying to add more wellness amenities for our guests.

Our stay at Carpe Diem was wonderful and we cannot recommend it highly enough.

We received a warm welcome from all of the team. As other reviews have mention, Jurgen’s breakfasts are fantastic, shared with other guests around a large table. Herbie’s restaurant advice and ability to secure tables at short notice was also invaluable.

The late afternoon wine and cheese gatherings gave us an opportunity to meet the other guests and discuss what everyone had been up to during the day. It almost felt like being part of an extended family, which made our stay very special.

The location could not be better – just off the main street and within a couple of minutes walk of the shops, restaurants and the wharf where the excellent whale whatching trips depart.

Construction work on a second building to extend the guesthouse was almost complete during our stay. This will give an extra 4 guest rooms which should keep it small enough to retain the friendly atmosphere and make breakfast and the wine & cheese afternoons even more interesting.

My partner and I just returned from P-Town, and absolutely LOVED our stay at Carpe Diem!
The rooms are beautifully decorated, the home made breakfasts are delicious (thanks Jurgen!), and everyone there is so friendly and accomodating! It is also steps from the center of town, which we love.
We highly recommend staying here, we've been visiting Provincetown for many years, and have found this to be one of the top bed and breakfasts in town!

My wife and I just enjoyed a marvelous stay at Carpe Diem over the Columbus Day weekend. Any B&B can offer a nicely decorated room and a comfortable bed, but what separates Carpe Diem from other guest houses is their inspiring attention to detail. Even before we left for our trip to PTown, Hans was kind enough to make our dinner reservations to ensure we received the seating times we wanted on this very busy weekend. Upon arrival, the ever gracious Herbie gave us a tour of the inn and amenities, including a 24-hour coffee/tea and port & sherry services, outdoor hot tub, and sun deck. Tasteful and relaxing music is piped to speakers throughout the inn and the outdoor spaces (and can even be accessed in your room via the telephone). Local, Boston, and New York newspapers were available in the morning. The softest towels I have ever used. Our room was serviced quickly, twice while we were having breakfast -- which leads me to compliment Jurgen's fine culinary talents - delicious waffles, crepes, eggs-to-order, cheese cakes, breakfast breads, etc.... Rainer was always friendly and ready to recommend places of interest. In short, we loved Carpe Diem so much, we will never stay anywhere else when we visit PTown.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Carpe Diem for 3 nights during Women's Week. We had such an amazing stay. The room was beautiful with great amenities. Hans, Jurgen, Rainer, and Herbie were extremely friendly and hospitable. We felt right at home. The breakfasts were a delightful and delicious start to our mornings. We intend to return to Carpe Diem annually. Five Stars!!!!
