A very nice boutique hotel, excellent stay, fantastic breakfast, very sweet people. The room is wide and very nice, bathroom is well designed but you need to climb some stairs to get there. The hotel is well located. The jewel of the hotel, or as you can say, the cherry on top is the front desk manager, a lovely lady that can advise you what to do in the most pragmatic and clever ways, her advises on our daily programs contributed a lot in making our stay in Cape Town and its surrounding area very enjoyable, she told us things and gave us tips on what to do and everything she advised us to do was wonderfull. Hope, i dont know if you are going to read this but if you do my wife and I send you a big big hug.

WOW! My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon and 1st anniversary in Cape Town. This was the first boutique hotel we stayed in and it was PERFECT! Gillian, Hope and the rest of the staff were incredibly knowledgeable and provided exemplary service. They even connected us to a fantastic tour guide which added so much to our experience in Cape Town. The property was immaculate, the room was perfect and the food was well executed. The location was great, convenient to get to everything, however a bit removed from the touristy areas. We look forward to our next stay at Kensington Place, our go to property in Cape Town!

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite which was a private "house" just up the drive from the main propert...

This was our third visit to Kensington Place. My husband and I have gone back for a visit every year since we were there for a night while on honeymoon - three years ago...it's THAT good!
It's a well located, central boutique hotel which feels like a real oasis far away, yet still so close to everything. Literally on the slopes of Table Mountain, a short walk down the road to the vibey restaurants and bars of Kloof street and a short 5-10min drive to the beautiful beaches of Camps Bay!
The food and service are equally good and the rooms are perfect for a little romance;)
Love this place each time we visit and of course we'll be back and I do HIGHLY recommend it.

Room Tip: Very few rooms...each special in it's own way.

What a nice boutique hotel ... with 9 rooms and a maximum of 18guests the staff make stop feel “home away from home”
Nestled in a beautiful residential area above the city and at the bottom of table mountain, but either a 20minutes walk down or a 10 minutes cab/ Uber drive takes you wherever you want to go. Very quiet and peaceful with generous rooms . Super friendly staff and good service

Our stay at Kensington place to start our dream South African honeymoon and could not have been happier about our experience. The staff was so welcoming and friendly upon arrival and did everything they could to make sure we felt welcome and had a full plan of attack for our stay in Cape Town. Gillian was a wealth of information on what to expect with different attractions and experiences and made sure we had everything we would need to enjoy our time there.

When they escorted us up and showed us all of the areas of our room we were blown away with our view as well as the room itself. A very large living space and comfortable couch and bed as well as a great bathroom with a very large tub. The view really stole the show however. What a great view of part of table mountain as well as an incredible view over Cape Town

In the morning the breakfast was amazing. So many options and a wonderfully friendly staff. We always headed out for the day with a full belly and smile on our faces. The staff also ensured we had dinner reservations for the evening and made calls to ensure all of our adventures were still on due to some windy weather and cloud cover. Made the full experience a total breeze.

I recommend to all that if they are looking for a place to stay they go to Kensington Place!
