Stayed at POD Camps bay for 3 nights with my wife as part of our honeymoon in South Africa. The design of the hotel is great, rooms very nice and cozy and more importantly it felt really special as the extra attention we were given made it one of my best experiences in a boutique hotel (and I have done...

We spent two nights here in the deluxe suite. Fantastic room with spectacular views of the ocean at Camp's Bay. The staff are very helpful and willing two answer any questions that you may have. The complimentary wifi is actually quite good, unlike a lot of hotels that offer the same service. If we're back in the Camp's Bay Area,... More

Really enjoyed our stay here after 6 days in the bush. The rooms are awesome, with lots of perks like a Nespresso machine and free drinks and treats. My favorite, hot water bottles put in the bed during turn down service. It made the bed cozy and my sore muscles appreciated it. Staff is super helpful and attentive, handled whatever... More

The Pod hotel is very functional as well as extremely stylish. This was 5 nights of luxury after 3 weeks of game viewing. Staff are very professional, helpful and friendly. The views of Camps Bay beach with the mountains as a backdrop is wonderful. Breakfast delicious. This is a beautiful home away from home and highly recommended.

We were at Pod as part of our honeymoon and we loved it! Got greeted with a bottle of wine that we drank over the amazing sunset at the beach right out of the balcony! Great room, helpful staff ( made us reservations for lunch and dinner at the recommended restaurants) and delicious breakfast! Definetelly recommend it!

Due to circumstances beyond our control we were unable to stay. The team looked after us well which endorses the well deserved reputation of the hotel. We look forward to being able to stay in the future.

We very much enjoyed out stay at The Pod, based on a friend's recommendation. We were not disappointed; the rooms - whilst 'pod' small style, were comfortable and had fabulous balcony views over Camps Bay Beach. The staff were outstanding, especially the young guy at the reception who makes excellent coffee (puts your name on it). Nothing was too much... More
