boutique hotel a hidden gem in Cape town

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Feb 2024
Our first stop on a South Africa tour (we spent 3 nights) and it was perfect especially after a long flight from the USA. Tucked away on a quiet street with views of Table Mountain. You are away from all of the hustle but close enough to get to 5-10 min away. Private and secure. The garden and pool are soothing. We had a beautiful large comfortable modern room steps away from the pool which we enjoyed every afternoon there. The breakfasts are delicious made to order and plentiful! We had one dinner there and the food and service was great. KP is a perfect boutique hotel would highly recommend and stay again if in CPT.

This was our first stop on our first trip to South Africa. We arrived slightly tired from the night flight, and were immediately put at our ease by Hope who patiently discussed our itinerary with us. She gave fantastic advice, helped us make bookings, and made us feel welcome, safe and very happy to be there. We had a lovely room ( no 1) although i think they all share a good view of the Mountain, when it doesn't have it's table cloth on! We were a bit worried about the location which was as 15 min Uber drive to Waterside and 10 mins to the centre of town, but in fact it was perfect. An Uber journey generally sets you back about £5. It is a little oasis and very handy for so many excellent restaurants eg Black Sheep and the Kloof Street house. When Hope wasn't around, Gillian took over and wa equally proactive and helpful. All in all, this is not just a wonderful place to stay it is also a masterclass in customer service.

Room tip: If travelling in high season ( we were not!) call the hotel ahead and ask them to book restaurants for you in advance.

We loved Kensington Place! This was the first stop on on our honeymoon and we're so glad it was. The breakfast was exceptional each morning. The hotel itself was stunning and everyone made us feel at home. We would 1000% recommend to anyone staying in Cape Town!

My stay at Kensington Place was truly exceptional. The staff's warm and attentive service made me feel right at home, and their dedication to ensuring a wonderful experience was evident throughout, starting with the warm welcome we received from Jillian, the front desk manager and the bottle of wine in our room.)

The delicious food was a highlight, especially the breakfast (be sure to try the Salmon Rosti!), the rooms were incredibly comfortable (yoga mats and weights were included!) and the bathroom had luxurious toiletries.

If you're looking for a boutique hotel in Cape Town - Kensington Place is the perfect choice for a memorable stay.

Stayed two nights prior to safari in Botswana. Staff was very welcoming with a bottle of wine in our room and recommendations for dinner during our stay. Rooms were very comfortable and security made you feel safe at all times. There are a couple restaurants/bars just down the hill within walking distance and Uber is readily available if you prefer dining in the city/harbor area. Breakfast started at 7:00am with made to order meals and was a great way to start the day. Thanks for a great stay!

Gilian was always around to provide assistance and she has really stylish spectacles. The room was big and clean. We even had a private patio to ourselves. Breakfast was delicious and the hot choc was a must for me at least once a day. Good restaurants are only 2mins' drive away.
