Everything about this place is amazing. Small hotel with large rooms, I believe there are 7 or 8 total. Lobby has sitting room with fireplace, dining area and bar complete it. The staff was amazing and so eager to help. Jillian greeted us and even though Cape Town had shut down again, we were able to get food easily and their recommendations were great. Garden and outdoor areas are so nice as well. Quiet room and location. Read less

Kensington Place was one of the best hotel experiences my husband and I have ever had. The room was beautiful with two balcony's and heated floors (which I loved!). The service was more than we could even imagine. We arrived when SA has just moved to Covid Alert Level 3, so restaurants were closing and the night manager before checking us in ordered us food after a long day of travel to make sure we wouldn't go hungry. The next morning, Hope at the front desk went above and beyond to help us coordinate a guided tour down to Cape of Good Hope, book lunch at La Colombe (amazing restaurant, highly recommend this too) and arrange when to climb Table Mountain. Julie Ann was just as helpful as and let us store our luggage for the day since we had an evening flight when we were departing South Africa. Due to Covid the kitchen was only open for breakfast, and it was a lovely breakfast with fresh pressed juice, lattes & a large variety of plates to chose from. Location was central to everything, very easy to walk to Kloof St, and less than 10 minute drive to anywhere else we needed to go. The neighborhood was beautiful and we felt safe walking around. 10/10 would recommend Kensington Place and will absolutely stay here again next time we're back in Cape Town.

The hotel is small and cosy, very comfortable with a beautiful small garden: orange, lemon trees around. What makes it a great stay is the staff! Everyone is extremely nice, very helpful and does a superb job! A special thanks to the breakfast kitchen staff for preparing outstanding omelettes and granola!
