I stayed at the POD for 4 nights from the 26st of May. I was there on business but my wife joined me as well. Though it was winter time in Cape Town and the Camps Bay area was fairly quiet we very happy with our choice of the POD. I agree with all the comments on the beautiful design, clean rooms, etc. but for us it was really the sense of personal attention that made the difference. All the staff (and particularly the ladies at the front desk) were brilliant and we were made to feel welcome from the day we arrived. We arrived at the hotel at 930am. Not only did we manage to get an early check-in but we got upgraded to a Luxury Room. Similarly, on the day we checked out we were told that we could stay in the room until it was time to go to the airport (and we did not even have to ask for this!). Moreover, the SatNav from the rental car company did not work and the hotel immediately told us we could use theirs free of charge, ironing/minibar was complimentary, etc. So cannot recommend strongly enough. I ususally stay in larger well-known hotels but I have been converted to the boutique type and will definitely stay at the POD next time I am in Cape Town. M. Mohamed
