Best of both worlds
Staff amazing, room sensational, views exceptional and location brilliant. Highly recommend this place. It was recommended to me by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Ideally located if you want to use the beach and only be a short trip out of the city. Best of both worlds. Thanks to the staff at POD. Courteous, friendly and helpful. Really make you feel welcome. Go and see for yourselves.

Amazing spot in Camps Bay!
My boyfriend and i had such a lovely stay at POD Camps Bay and my only regret was not staying longer. We got automatically upgraded upon checking in and had a room with a view of both the mountains and the ocean. The location could not have been better in regards to being in Camps Bay. The hotel offered so many additional amenities such as free wine in the mini fridge (!!). The person at the front desk booked us a very last minute taxi ride to the airport at an extremely reasonable price. Lovely staff, lovely hotel, lovely location!

A little gem
We really enjoyed the relaxed ambiance and design of the POD from the rooms thru’ the public area. Set close to the beach and the “strip”, it was still quiet and relaxing with a friendly front desk team who catered for your every need. Breakfast and sunset snacks were also delicious.

The greatest hotel
This hotel is incredible. The friendliest most accommodating staff! Loved it here. I stayed here for 3 nights when I first arrived in Cape Town, then moved to a different hotel for two night and just had to come back to POD for the rest of my stay
