We stayed here for 5 days recently and all of our expectations were met and surpassed. The hotel is very modern and has a contemporary finish with a small amount of rooms. The staff were all extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was very good with both a buffet and cooked menu available for all guests. The... More

This is a wonderful small hotel on Camps Bay. It is 10 minutes by car to downtown. Rooms are nice, modern with all the conveniences. We had a beach view and a plunge pool. Great service and concierge. Close to everything and steps from the beach. Highly recommended.

Camps Bay is great, and the Pod is very comfortable with fantastic staff. A little noisy sometimes because of the traffic (hotel is on a steep hill) but great rooms and the best service. Also good for restarants etc in Camps Bay

We've never stayed in a POD property before, but we certainly would again. Cape Town is beautiful and charming, so the hotel selection was secondary, but the staff could not have been more cordial, helpful and friendly. The hotel itself is modern and comfortable and has fantastic views of Table Mountain and the beach.

Pod has got it all right. Staff can't do enough. Location is spot on, views to the sea from the pool and from rooms, but just far enough back to avoid the noise of Victoria road. Service impeccable, rooms are lovely, pool just enough to cool off. Complimentary mini bar, all waters, teas and coffees were not in the bill,... More
