This was our first trip to South Africa and weren't sure what to expect, The hotel staff were very friendly and helped us find our way around, They explained to us the power problem in South Africa and gave us plenty of notice when the power would be out, this is not a hotel problem as some suggest it is...

Camps Bay was a great place to spend three days at the end of our South African vacation. The Place on the Bay didn't disappoint in any way. The view from the room was amazing and the proximity to Table Mountain, the cape Town Waterfront and indeed all the restaurants on the main drag made it the ideal location. In... More

Although it has a brilliant location, I will never go back to Place on the Bay. Items were stolen from my room, food was literally just take from the fridge, and even the spare key we kept in the drawer disappeared (Which is a very frightening thought, to think someone could access the apartment at any point). When I emailed... More

Beauty location, superb views, close to all restaurants, bars and beach. Friendly and accommodating staff. Room was clean and cleaned on a daily basis with all the amenities you will need for self catering purposes.

We stayed here for two nights and were very happy with our accomodation. It was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. There was a secure car park, safe in the room and free wi fi. Our terrace was side on sea view - but we sat further down and had a fantastic view of the sunset with a glass... More

We review the mixed reviews for this hotel - and hmmm'ed and ahhhhh'ed for a while before just deciding to do it! It's good value for money - right in the heart of Camps Bay, a stone's throw from the beautiful beach - and literally metres from the main street's many restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable - ours... More

Fantastic location on the bay, private terrace overlooking the sea ! Warm welcome. The room was excellent (with fully equipped kitchen for self caterers) Great to sit by the pool and watch the people on the beach and the most spectacular sunset.

I stayed in a Standard Studio room (305), for 10 nights at the Place on the Bay Hotel during the Easter Holidays. If you have a car, there is secure parking and you are issued a remote for the gate, which is very useful as the adjacent streets get busy at certain times of the day/week. The receptionists Marion, Leila... More

Mixed feelings about our stay here really, but as other reviewers have said, the deluxe hotel rooms were recently updated decor wise, but clearly very old in terms of fittings. 3 star really for facilities eg bathrooms and kitchen. There is a dreadful reception area to greet new arrivals. But the thing that bothered me most was the fact that... More
