Small, personal hotel, 5* & beyond!

My wife and I were visiting Cape Town as part of a larger trip across South Africa, Kensington Place was our stopover for 4 nights- we wish we could have stayed longer!

The service from the start was impeccable, some of the best we have experienced when travelling. The little touches- booking restaurants for us, breakfast available all thoughout the day anytime, every staff member remembered our name; the list is endless!

Great breakfast too, highly recommend the eggs benedict South African style!

Great location too for Cape Town, around 45mins walk to V&A waterfront, loads of little bars and restaurants a short walk away (5 - 10 mins).

Size of the room was lovely, a little seating area with a very large bed, very clean and a nice patio / balcony area too.

Top boutique hotel that we will be recommending to friends. 5*****

An Elegant Hideaway

We spent a lovely three nights at Kensington Place in October. The
rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The common areas are welcoming
and we particularly enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the afternoon
for drinks overlooking the gardens. The staff were all warm and
accommodating. For us the biggest standout was the breakfasts. Wow!
All the options were delicious (we tried many of them). The juices are
a must have - try them!!

Visitors should be aware that some of the steps in the common areas,
including steps to reception, do not have railings which may make it
difficult to maneuver. One of the rooms (not where I stayed) requires
climbing stairs with no railing to access the bathroom. This would be
a concern for me as a middle of the night trip to the bathroom could
result in a bad fall. If this is a concern for you, make sure you let
them know when booking. Stairs did not deter us from enjoying our stay
at Kensington Place, but I wanted to mention it.


From the moment you arrive until the time you leave, you will be spoiled rotten! Welcome champagne and nice chat with all the ins and outs of the area, and then to the room. We had the luxury room with the amazing balcony with beds and stunning view. Great bed with a choice of pillows and the softest linen ever. Breakfast is only a la carte but again outstanding. Everything fresh and healthy with such great flavours and textures. Everything is sorted for you, pre reserved restaurants, if you even think Table Mountain your ticket is printed so no ques for you! Can not recommend this place enough.
