In my life I have travelled far and wide on business and for holidays. I don't think any of the hotels I have stayed in previously match up to POD boutique hotel in camps bay.

Beautiful boutique hotel without all the pretension that usually goes with them. Great location just back from Camps Bay strip, don't worry about the red block in front. The rooms are stunning, we stayed in 101, possibly the best we've ever stayed in. The service is so good, you don't even realise how well you're being looked after. Stay there... More

My family and I just completed a three night stay at the POD hotel. Fantastic location, coupled with the best service you could ever hoped for. Everyone at the hotel was extremely friendly and willing to help in anyway possible. The location is extraordinary. I don't know why anyone would want to stay in Cape Town while visiting the area.The... More

My wife and I stayed for a week at the POD and had the greatest experience for our first time in Africa. The staff were all incredible with the best service possible. They would park our car every day and bring it out. Breakfast was always excellent. They made our reservations for dinner and gave us recommendations for restaurants. If... More

Its very hard to get it wrong in Camps Bay but sometimes you can take it even further, this Boutique hotel is three minutes walk from the beach, restaurants and bars in Camps Bay.

Dear Muchohi Thank you for the wonderful review and the kind words on the location, value adds and the service from the team. As mentioned in your review, Camps Bay is a very busy area and we do experience some traffic noise at times. We are currently investigating an acoustic glazing solution for the street facing rooms and we hope... More

Stayed for only four nights. Staff were extremely helpful with anything that we required. Helped book anything that we wanted to do. Lovely pool area and the room was fantastic, although the balcony/private pool area was not perhaps the most private as was right by the entrance. Breakfast was great in the morning and would even bring it to you... More

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Table Mountain bisects the city, giving the traveller the option of two quite different experiences. To the East of the mountain are the Southern Suburbs, such as Newlands and Constantia. Green, spacious and beautiful country views. But on the other side of the mountain is the Atlantic Sea... 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.
