Pods is practically located on the beach-just cross one street and you're there. The service was excellent: we had a late flight and were allowed to use the hotel lobby, pool, shower,carpark etc and (real bonus!) they let us use a beach-package with towels,beachmats,cold water etc. The rooms are nice with cool design although i would recommend sharing with someone...

We absolutely loved this tiny gem of a boutique hotel! Every single detail -- from the bathroom amenities to the in-room Nespresso machine, from the delicious (included) breakfast to the gorgeous infinity-edge pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean -- was so well thought out. The service was fantastic, from the barman to the front desk team to the cleaning staff. Our... More

We stayed at Pod for 4 nights. It's a great hotel - one of the best we stayed in in South Africa. Service is very good and friendly, e.g. We had to get up for a table mountain hile before breakfast time and they packed a brackfast basket for us. I also forgot my phone charger which they sent to... More

The Hotel has been found on the Internet, we decided booking based on the design and style of the rooms, and due to the location close to the beach and the sunset strip in Camps Bay. We were travelling the whole Western Provinz for 7 days and the Hotel was our central "home" base during this vacation trip. We're planning... More

A very warm and professional welcome when arriving at this lovely decorated place. The room was nice, though there have been some design errors, such as the wooden floor too close to the shower, but this is anecdotic. Our most deception was that the product shown on the website does not match with the reality ! We booked at POD... More
