The only thing I can say about this hotel was that is has the best location in Camps Bay and the service was good
It is part of a RCI time share and while the RCI gave it an award I would barely put it in the category of a 2 star hotel,
Rooms/suites were old and needed updating. New furniture and a paint job.
As I mentioned location was good and it was next to some great restaurants and across from the beach.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with family

Dear Thomas0851
It is sad that you think so little of the Hotel! We painted all the units and most of them have a new sleeper coach in.
We will load some new pictures on the web site asap.
Thank you for the compliment regarding the service.
Have a great week!!

We stayed here for only one night but our room with kitchenette and great patio was all we needed. The front desk staff were extremely attentive providing us with a room with shower to use to freshen up as we arrived quite a bit before our checkin time. The little restaurant was lovely and we loved sitting by the pool watching the fabulous sunsets. The location cannot be beat, right across the road from the beach and not even a minute walk to great restaurants and bars. We had a great stay! thank you!

Myself, my husband and 9 month old daughter stayed here with my parents from the 2nd to the 7th March. The location is ideal. The staff are amazing and couldn't have been more helpful. My mother requires a mobility scooter and they couldn't have been more helpful in helping us store it. We stayed in room 303 and my parents stayed in room 306. When we moved into 303 we realised it really didn't suit (entirely my fault, I was so hooked on the idea of having an outside Jacuzzi, forgetting we had a baby with us). 303 has an upstairs and the bedroom is small in the sense there was no space for our daughter to roll around. In the end we swapped with my parents and we took the apartment 306 which is amazing, loads of space and an amazing view. Room 303 has a side view of the sea and is around the back of the hotel, but suited my folks just fine as they could drive the scooter right in the door.
All in all we had an amazing stay, couldn't recommend it highly enough. please not camps bay is a 'DRY SUBURB' so no drink can be purchased in shops there, you need to drive to sea point near by to get any drink for home consumption.

Dear SusieQ1978
It was realy nice to have all of you here and that we could help your mother with the scooter and swopped the rooms.
I am glad that you had a good time and enjoyed our beautiful city - specially Camps Bay.
Hope to welcome you back at Place on the Bay one day again!!
Kind regards
