There is a very special atmosphere to Kensington Place. It is both trendy and tasteful, with clean lines and lovely textures. The service is particularly impressive.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Kensington Place is a beautifully designed boutique hotel in a leafy suburb on the foothills of Table Mountain. It is a short walk from Kloof Street, with its cafés, small shops and restaurants.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Its eight rooms are extremely smart, with marble baths, some lovely South African artwork, and private balconies. Great attention has been paid to detail. Each room has all sorts of extra touches, ranging from iPod docking stations, a laptop with free Wi-Fi and a Skype phone, to a ‘gym in a bag’ and a beach bag with beach towels. This is a hotel that wants guests to have everything they need to make their stay enjoyable.
The hotel makes a great base for travellers visiting Cape Town. However, guests will need a taxi if they wish to eat out in the evening. There is also a good restaurant and a verdant garden with a plunge pool where guests can relax after a busy day exploring Cape Town.
