In a fantastic position on the main Camps Bay action strip opposite the beach with views from all apartments it seems. Good sized rooms. Secure parking. A very well equipped little kitchen for longer stays & still a decent stay but this place could be so much more with some TLC from more hands on owners. Typical of places which have been handed over to management, attention to detail is lacking. Just had a bad storm which may have accounted for leaves around pool etc but either way this place needs owners to play a more active role. Light & bright with lots of light & decent furniture, it is not a bad option given its position but not perfect as it could be with the right management. People used to good 4 & 5 Stars would not be satisfied & should try elsewhere.

Room Tip: Higher will have better views / be quieter.

We stayed here for 16 nights & loved it. The reception staff were wonderful & couldn't have been more helpful, in fact all members of staff were very friendly. Our room was large, bright & kept spotlessly clean. It was lovely to have a terrace overlooking the beach & pool. the hotel is in a very good position for the shops & restaurants.

The location is ideal, in walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The suite was like having a little apartment so the kids had fun roaming around. The little restaurant tucked on the side is cute and had a nice menu.

Room Tip: Top rooms have a view to the ocean, very nice.

Dear NMandLittleNomads
Thank you so much for your much appreciated feedback.
You right - always better to book a Two bedroom unit when your kids traveling with you - much more space!!
Happy to hear you had a good time and was well looked after.
Have a great week and hope to see you again.
Best regards

Location of The Place on the Bay is very ideal: it's across the street from Camps Bay beach, and a stone's throw from many restaurants (all of which become the spots to see and be seen come evening!). Friendly service, and very helpful staff. Some of the furntire and fixtures could use some updating, but that does not stop me from giving this place a very good rating.

We stayed for 3 nights with our 7 year old, and the hotel was ideal for our holiday. Reasons:

- Flat with multiple bedrooms (our preferred way of staying on holidays)
- Literally across the beach
- Next to many restaurants
- Friendly service
- Parking available but if you don't have a car, they will call in taxis

Room Tip: If you don't want road noise, ask for a flat in the back on the building. Their web site shows exact locations.

Dear pk45hyd
Thank you so much for your feedback - much appreciated!!
Happy to hear that even your 7year old daughter enjoyed it - the pool is lovely and the fact that the beach is just on the other side of the road, helps a lot.
Have a great week and hope to see you in the near future again!!
