We stayed at POD for our honeymoon in the big suite with the sea view. In a word awesome. Staff could not do enough for us, from the breakfast crew, to the receptionists and the guys in the bar. We absolutely loved this place and would love to go back! Top marks!

We spent three nights at POD based on reviews on Tripadvisor. In general I agree with most of the comments and enjoyed my stay there. The room which faced the beach was huge and very modernistic with grey slate and clean lines. The open bathroom had two huge shower heads which was excellent and a vast bath which my wife... More

Just magnificent. This monument to taste and design is a treat for the senses. Gentle serenity envelops you from all sides, and staff finish off the wonderful experience. Not the cheapest joint in town, but definitely worth treating yourself to. No dinner restaurant, but 2 minute walk to legendary Victoria road eateries does the trick

I call it a hidden gem, because although it was ranked one of the highest on trip advisor I was surprised by how many taxi drivers had not heard of this hotel. We really enjoyed our week long stay here. This was a really nice area of town. I debated between staying here and at a larger chain like the... More

Stayed at this place for ten days for a business trip and it was fantastic. Very nice architecture and lovely location in Camps Bay. All the staff was friendly and nice all the time. Especially breakfast was great. If you stay in Cape Town area, you will not regret staying at this fabulous place.

This hotel really is a stunner on all accounts: location, design, staff, service, you name it. Upon arrival we were 'downgraded' by accident, to a room without sea view while we had booked a sea view room. Million apologies and after the second night we were upgraded to the sea view suite (which is enormous and gorgeous, although the normal... More
