POD Camps Bay was a brilliant way to start our trip. If you enjoy contemporary architecture, wonderful service and a short stroll to the beach, this is the place to go to without question. The manager Brendan is a great guy who clearly gets service after a few years in the industry. He has built a great team around him and they are a pleasure to be around. I am ashamed to say that I have forgotten the name of the tall chap who looked after us at breakfast and by the pool, but he deserves special mention - effortlessly charming, warm and welcoming, a real star. Sadly, we may not be able to return to the hotel in the near future as this was a last pre-baby escape and the hotel has a no young children policy. But for us this was part of the draw and in no way a complaint - it is a grown ups haven, wonderful! Best bits - architecture and coastal contemporary design, sunset by the pool, the staff, the ease of the underground parking and being just a short hop over the hill into town. A brilliant hotel I would wholeheartedly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms look great, the corner suites looked amazing. We had a Luxury and loved it.

Dear Alex

Thank you for posting such a fabulous review about POD Camps Bay.

I really appreciate the compliment on the management and service culture that we have created at the hotel.

I have said it before and I will say it again, the team in place at POD is the best group of people that I have had the pleasure of working with in all my years in the industry. It is without doubt that without them, POD would not be the place it is today.

Wishing you and Kizzy all the best for the upcoming birth of your baby. Get lots of sleep now :-)

Warmest,

Brendan Boyle

We stayed at POD for five nights this past February, in the room 3(Luxury suite with plunge pool). We've stayed in many top rated hotels, and from the second we arrived, this place blew them all away. Everything was complete perfection, down to the smallest detail. Very pleased with the area, as we were initially booked to stay in Cape Town Central, but opted for Camps Bay instead. Plenty of amazing restaurants within safe walking distance, for which the amazing staff happily reserved for us each night. Every employee truly went above and beyond for us, and made us feel at home. The lounge and bar/pool area are completely gorgeous, and frame the sunset perfectly over the beach. The drinks were beyond phenomenal, and delivered to the pool in our room with a smile. We had amazing tours booked most days in Cape Town, but regardless kept wishing they would just be over quickly so we could spend more time at this amazing place. Breakfast each morning was perhaps the best we've ever had, anywhere. The room was spacious, impeccably decorated with a great blend of modern and african decor. Our patio was equally beautiful, with amazing views of both mountains and beach. We cannot possibly recommend this place more highly, and worth every penny! A huge thank you to the staff as well, never felt more pampered.

From the moment we walked through the door I knew it would be as good as I had hoped - but it was even better! Sleek, minimalist, pared back luxury. A very warm welcome from the staff and that superb service continued throughout our stay. The staff on reception went out of their way to help - the daily free bottle of wine was exchanged for a Chardonney instead of Savignon. I was a little apprehensive that the Mountain room might feel claustrophobic having smaller, high windows but what a surprise - the Lions Head was perfectly framed in one window and 12 Apostles in the other. Room was not huge but perfectly and thoughtfully designed, as was the ensuite, making both feel surprisingly roomy. Beautiful toiletries. Not that we stayed in to watch their DVDs but they provide popcorn with them! Breakfast was superb and the service then and for complementary teas, coffees and waters always first class. Beautiful, if smallish pool area with loungers but they also provided very comfortable deckchairs which they took down to beach for us and collected too. Sea view rooms were fantastic and the deluxe corner sea view was simply stunning - but unless you are thinking of staying in your room 24/7, opt for Mountain View ( not mini Mountain) and stay another night or two!

Room Tip: 206 which is Mountain view but on a corner so has three windows, two with spectacularly framed Mountain views

Dear Jackie

I am pleased to hear that POD not only met but exceeded your expectations and I appreciate your praise on the design, welcome, service, breakfast and the amenities.

As you mention in your room tip, unless you are planning to stay in your room for most of the day the mountain rooms are perfectly proportioned rooms at a great rate.

Warm regards,
