If it's a very discreet boutique hotel you're after in a stunning central location right under Table Mountain, plus chic interiors and very good service, you can’t go wrong with Kensington Place in Kensington Crescent, Higgovale, Cape Town. A recent one night winter stay was sheer pleasure from start to finish (despite the fact that it took a very long time for anyone to answer the door bell!)
The interiors reflect both a contemporary style and very good taste and we were very pleased with our extremely comfortable private suite which was tucked away at the end of the building with a small terrace overlooking the beautiful leafy garden. We loved the big luxurious bed, especially as we were travel-weary, having just returned from a European holiday. The big bathroom, however, had one major problem which was the walk-in shower which leaked over the whole bathroom floor, a lawsuit waiting to happen for anyone unlucky enough to slip!
Meals are available on demand throughout the day and all the staff we encountered were very pleasant indeed, especially the following morning in the pretty dining area overlooking the garden with its incomparable views of Table Mountain where we ordered breakfast. This was quickly and efficiently served and quite delicious with great attention to presentation. We were very sorry that we could only spend one night here, but would not hesitate to recommend it to visitors seeking both luxury and location in a small boutique hotel offering such a good general standard.
