Kensington Place

Cape Town

Coined as the ‘coolest bolthole in Cape Town’, Kensington Place never fails to deliver sublime comfort, second-to-none service and an exceptional experience. It is one of Cape Town’s most stylish and one of the original boutique properties, ideally located on the slopes of Table Mountain in Higgovale. Ideally located, it’s secluded and peaceful but also near to the attractions of the city.

The eight rooms are defined by a blend of luscious textures and contemporary detail. There are seven Superior Suites and one Standard Room. Number 7 is the only room on the ground floor and has no view, but it does boast a cute garden location, and a great bathroom.

Only locally sourced South African ingredients are used by the in-house chefs to create breakfasts, lunch and dinners served al fresco on the terrace or in the open dining room.

Kensington Place boasts a small pool and courtyard-style garden with comfortable, chic outdoor lounging areas. Off-site exercise facilities are available should you feel like a work out.
