Just returned to the UK from a stay at The Place on the Bay. Have to say that the hotel lived up to our expectations. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay there again. Room 305 was excellent. Very comfortable with a lovely view. Only downside is the lack of Wi Fi in the rooms which I... More

Not a traditional hotel in the sense that it is a "serviced apartment / self-catering" type of place, but it does offer very good value for money. Friendly and efficient staff, who went out of their way to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. The rooms [we had a ground floor studio] are spacious and have all the goodies... More

We like to end our South Africa holidays in Camps Bay, which is expensive. The Place on the Bay is at the more affordable end. We stayed here for 2 nights. We had room 105 which was right at the front with a terrific view. Great to sit on the balcony or just inside the french windows and watch the... More

Situated in the hub of Camps Bay, right across from the beach. You can walk everywhere from here. We unfortunately had a number of pigeons sleeping next to our window, making slleping a bit late impossible. However, the room was spacious and luxurious and offers fair value.

I stayed 8 days in the 2 bed/2 bath (with my 9 year old son) apt and I have to say that this place exceeded my expectations. The apt is both beach and mountain view and you are a stone throw from the beach. Great locations, great restaurants in the area. The surrounding community is very upscale and security in... More

My husband and I recently had a four day stay here. The location and view were fabulous and the clean room was large, bright and airy. The small kitchen was well equipped (full cooker and fridge and good mix of pots, crockery and utensils) and let us cook the type of simple breakfasts and lunches we had planned. Having a... More

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!
