  • We had a wonderful trip and we are all very keen to do Africa again. We loved Cape town and Pod Hotel and would highly recommend it. Thanks for all your help.

    Tim Bishop, February 2014
  • We really enjoyed our stay at POD Hotel which you rightly put is an amazing place and very well located. Since we came back from Honeymoon, we keep telling friends and family about POD Hotel, Camps Bay and Cape Town in general which a marvelous place. Beyond POD Hotel, Cape Town is a very beautiful place.

  • We had a ball. The place was fantastic, they even upgraded us to the top suite. Breakfast was divine, had the POD special! Yummy.

  • The hotels were all great, especially Pod Hotel - ambience and service were perfect! The general manager upgraded us to a deluxe suite on the last 2 nights of our stay which brought our vacation to a beautiful end.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Pod. The service was excellent as was the accommodation. The only negative was that our room looked straight onto a very ugly block of flats but otherwise we were both very happy.

    Alex Schonfrucht, April 2012
  • Everything went off so smoothly, I cannot thank you enough. We wound up staying an extra night at POD! Really, things were perfect.

    Jennifer Miranne, March 2012
  • We had a wonderful time. Pondoro was great. The POD in Cape Town upgraded us to an ocean front room which made are stay even more enjoyable.

    Tom Koleski, August 2011
  • The Pod Camps Bay Hotel in Cape Town was very cool and modern. The customer service was also great. We enjoyed our tour in Cape Town, as well.

    Robin Lacour, August 2011
  • Pod was so convenient for everything. We grew to appreciate the exquisite style of the property and liked the laid back owner who paid attention to every detail. We swam, the only guests to have done so, I think! Camps Bay was possibly more suitable for a younger couple who like rowdy bars but we did appreciate being able to walk out to a restaurant of an evening when we'd had enough of driving.
