Disappointed. Apart from the location (which is top notch), this property needs serious refurbishment (apparently scheduled to start soon) and it is a shame it is marketed on website like Booking.com. The pool was closed, the beds were very old (and itchy)... Avoid if you...More

Thank you for staying with us and for the review. As you would know Capetown has at the moment the worst drought in 100 years and as such we need to use alternative water for the pool which we have to treat before we can...More

We have taken many photographs of this establishment to indicate where it fails dismally. Moved out and lost R14 000. Simply put: we moved to a five star hotel, Radisson Blu, Waterfront for virtually the same price!More

Thank you for staying with us and for the review. Please note that Place On The Bay offers a 5 star position being right on the Camps bay beach, while the property itself is more of a 3 star plus facility and is priced accordingly,...More

Thank you for staying with us and for the review. It's a pity you could stay one night with us which did not give us an opportunity to offer you other possible options.

We were happy that we booked into this small hotel over looking the beautiful Camp's Bay beach within close proximity to a number of highly rated restaurants and pubs. The hotel is older but is kept clean despite the blowing sand from the sometimes strong...More

Thank you for staying with us - we appreciate the feedback.

Reviewed 27 November 2017

Close to the beach, to bars and restaurants. An added plus is the availibility of parking space. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but could need a little renovation. Nevertheless, this is of minor importance compared to the advantages this hotel has to offer.
