Place on the bay is a great location with friendly staff. Right on the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and shops. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxed holiday on the beach in beautiful Cape Town. I will definitely be back!

This was the first stop of our holiday and was perfect as a base to explore Cape Town and the area. We had a hire car and so having secure parking was a real bonus and the rooms were large and had everything we could want or need in the kitchenette. Although the bathroom was a bit 'tired' it worked... More

In a fantastic position on the main Camps Bay action strip opposite the beach with views from all apartments it seems. Good sized rooms. Secure parking. A very well equipped little kitchen for longer stays & still a decent stay but this place could be so much more with some TLC from more hands on owners. Typical of places which... More

The location is ideal, in walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The suite was like having a little apartment so the kids had fun roaming around. The little restaurant tucked on the side is cute and had a nice menu.

Location of The Place on the Bay is very ideal: it's across the street from Camps Bay beach, and a stone's throw from many restaurants (all of which become the spots to see and be seen come evening!). Friendly service, and very helpful staff. Some of the furntire and fixtures could use some updating, but that does not stop me... More

We stayed for 3 nights with our 7 year old, and the hotel was ideal for our holiday. Reasons: - Flat with multiple bedrooms (our preferred way of staying on holidays) - Literally across the beach - Next to many restaurants - Friendly service - Parking available but if you don't have a car, they will call in taxis
