Kensington Place


Voted the world’s best city hotel, a hip, urban boutique hotel on the slopes of Table Mountain, with great views down to the ocean, and yet just ten minutes from the city centre.

The hotel offers eight rooms, each of which is individually designed in cool, contemporary shades and style with modern African artefacts throughout. Best of all, every room has its own balcony or terrace, perfect for enjoying an alfresco breakfast, while the hotel’s private garden and swimming pool is a sanctuary above the city.


Our Thoughts

The best luxury boutique property in a city which contains many. Cutting-edge cool and highly stylish, the service is impeccable, the local recommendations of manager Austen and owner Chris unrivalled, and the eggs benedict for breakfast the best anywhere. Tables can also be secured at Cape Town’s finest, and often fully-booked, eateries.
