Won’t be staying here again
Won’t be staying there again. From the time we checked in things could have been better. From a delayed check in, to out dated furniture, lift not working, etc it just wasn’t for us. The location is the only thing going for this place, it’s right on the Camps Bay strip

Nice Stay at a beautiful area
Great and clean Apartments in Camps Bay in front of the beach. Amazing view from the balcony. Very helpful and nice service and staff overall. We will definitely come back. Camps Bay is the best place to stay if you like an area with sea and a nice beach.

perfect location
The view from the room were beautiful and I could hear the sound of the waves from the room. The hotel is close to restaurants, beach, shops and tourists attraction. The hotel is outdated and needs some revamping.

Beach side bliss
This place was perfect! We had a large group of people who needed lodging while in Cape Town and Place on the Bay checked all our boxes. Location was amazing right along Camps Bay Beach and was in walking distance of many restaurants and stores. We stayed in the studio room with a king size bed, balcony facing the beach, and full sky light. Just amazing! Our other friends stayed in the two bedroom and had beyond enough space to enjoy our time. Our bathroom did have some light mold on the wall but the rest of the space was clean. The staff were beyond friendly. I highly recommend this hotel!

Poor 2,0
Photos on website were not what the room we got looked like. We checked in late and there was no one on call once we settled in to the room to call about changing the room. Since we were on our honeymoon we left that evening and found another hotel. I did receive contact from a manager offering to try and fix the problem the next day but we had already found another hotel. Unfortunately I did not receive a refund. I would not recommend staying here.
