We are currently on our last day in the pod. We have been lucky enough to stay in some top hotels over the years but none can compare!

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

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your recent stay at POD.

Just returned from POD Camps Bay in Capetown. What a wonderful boutique hotel. Fabulous location - aways from the commercial tourism area - but an easy ride to the waterfront. Outstanding team there who are truly accommodating to every need. Extremely helpful and insightful. Easy walk to the beach - and very well appointed rooms. Excellent breakfast that is complimentary.... More

My husband says it's like travelling with the hotel inspector, but I can't fault POD. The experience is what you would expect from a high end boutique hotel- effortlessly cool, exceptional attention to detail, attentive but not overbearing staff. The sun deck has views of Camps Bay and Table Mountain. You need not move from there and some days we... More

Dear Ruth It was such a pleasure to host you at POD and I am glad that we managed to get to the top of the "Hotel Inspectors" favorite hotel list...

Great rooms, excellent staff, remarkable service and attention to details. POD is a great place to stay be it leisure of work, we combined the both with great ease and thanks to the staff. We will definitely come back or advise friends to stay if the opportunity arises.

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute in this luxury boutique hotel. The location is brilliant, with views of the coast to the front and Table Mountain to the rear. We had the most basic of room types which was small but elegantly and stylishly designed. The more superior rooms (which the staff showed us) are truly amazing. The communal sun deck... More

World class. Superb attention to detail, unobtrusive personal service in an elegant, stylish environment. Just wonderful. The team of people are excellent, and combined with the beautiful place, make it a fabulous space. Everything is done in such an understated, quiet manner too, which is so professional and polite. It makes me smile every time I think of being there.
