We stayed here for a week in March. It was a last minute trip and we really enjoyed ourselves. I really liked the small scale relaxed vibe of the place. Our room was well designed and housekeeping was excellent. The staff was great and very accommodating. They helped us arrange a tour and provided local restaurant suggestions and helped with bookings. The breakfast was simple but good, and while the hotel does not have in-room dining it is readily available on a number of local food delivery apps. Overall, we will stay here again on our next visit to Camps Bay.

This is an exceptional property located in a quiet suburb of Camps Bay with stunning sea views, access to a myriad of beautiful beaches and minutes away from an array of bustling
restaurants and bars. What sets this property apart is not only its clever & environmentally friendly design but it wonderfully attentive, friendly and professional staff. We were greeted by the gracious and ever helpful Claire who together with her colleagues made our stay at POD incredible to say the least. The rooms are superbly appointed, spacious and elegant with all of the amenities and more of a fine establishment. The public areas are equally attractive, conducive to relaxing, soaking up the sun during the day and enjoying a cocktail as you watch the sunset in the evening.

A must visit for the discerning traveller, you won’t be disappointed.

We loved staying here, it's such a perfect little hotel. The Rooms are brilliantly designed - we had a view of the mountains and sea from ours. The staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, they were all great but special mention to little Bryan on the bar and the lovely Zimbabwean lady who served breakfast (sorry, I don't remember her name). Both were so friendly and genuinely interested in how you were enjoying your stay. Obviously reception staff were great too and helped us arrange trips and rectify a problem (which was out of their control). The hotel is in a great location, steps from the beach and a short walk to Clifton beaches. Breakfast was excellent and the complimentary cheese and wine each evening was a great way to chat to other guests. Would definitely reccomend staying here.

Dear racheldawson2017,

Thank you for posting such a positive review of your stay with us.

Guest interaction and service excellence is what makes us stand out from the crowd. Brian and Concillah have basically been with us from day one and are huge assets to POD. I am glad that you loved the design, rooms, views, location, breakfast and I must agree, our complimentary cheese and wine hour is truly popular amongst our guests.

We hope to welcome you back to POD soon.

Warm regards,
Micaela & the POD team

What an amazing way to start our epic vacation. Camps Bay is truly the best place to stay in Cape Town, and the hotel itself is cute and cozy, rooms are big, beautiful and very clean, and the staff is the BEST. Special thanks to Vaughn to making everything perfect and going above and beyond - he is truly good at what he does and obviously passionate. He's a great example of how to manage a hotel. Also thanks to Nick, Tamsin and Claire who were all so wonderful and accommodating. No request felt like a bother, no task or question went unattended or unanswered. Relaxing and posh!

I would just note that if you're interested in room for dinner, it was pretty tricky as the hotel does not have it's own restaurant - we had to get takeout via UberEats and there is not a massive selection. Minor issue though!

Fab hotel, all staff outstanding with a brilliant location in camps bay.
Lounge at the pool is super relaxing with the ocean sounds in your ear sipping wine it’s bliss.
Great rooms 203 is fab.
Great in house wine in your fridge awesome, breakfast is healthy or cooked delicious.
Our room was upgraded our room was decorated with petals and champagne for our special occasion this was so cool and with no fuss. This hotel just gets everything right makes you feel like a star without any unpretentiousness.

Thanks all at POD
