Just had a great three-night stay at the POD in Camps Bay. Both our room and the common areas were very slick and functional, and the staff extremely helpful. They made us feel right at home and provided some excellent recommendations in terms of restaurants, activities and wines to try. We were debating between the waterfront and Camps Bay for... More

We had an exceptional stay at POD Camps Bay. Rarely does one get such professional, friendly and efficient service at any hotel. Simon makes the best cappuccino in Camps Bay, I cannot wait to return to this little jewel in Camps Bay.

In my life I have travelled far and wide on business and for holidays. I don't think any of the hotels I have stayed in previously match up to POD boutique hotel in camps bay.

Beautiful boutique hotel without all the pretension that usually goes with them. Great location just back from Camps Bay strip, don't worry about the red block in front. The rooms are stunning, we stayed in 101, possibly the best we've ever stayed in. The service is so good, you don't even realise how well you're being looked after. Stay there... More

Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and willing to help in anyway possible. The location is extraordinary.

Stayed for only four nights. Staff were extremely helpful with anything that we required. Helped book anything that we wanted to do. Lovely pool area and the room was fantastic, although the balcony/private pool area was not perhaps the most private as was right by the entrance. Breakfast was great in the morning and would even bring it to you... More
