We stayed 5 nights and felt well cared for by the staff and enjoyed the amenities. Our room was one of the smaller ones which felt cramped at times, however, we usually rested near the pool which was very pleasant and not crowded. The breakfast meals were superb and they will customize if needed. Best of all the staff could not have been more helpful with dinner reservations, places to go, car rental, cabs etc.

Staying in superior room (#5) for a single night. Excellent beds and super service. Very clean. Breakfast very nice with lots of choices - all served at the table. On negative side : no newspaper (maybe on request) and the curtains are horrible (they do not ban the light - its crazy in a place like this that designs wins over functionality. You should fix these if you want to compete with the big boys and charge the rates ! Otherwise nothing to complain. Location nice too - views of Table Mountain and close to Kloof street.

Room Tip: Superior room is good value for money and offers a nice sitting area and large terrace.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Kensington Place - thank you for the positive feedback and constructive remarks. Our curtains do have full block-out lining, however light can seep through the sides. We are currently looking for an alternative solution. We look forward to welcoming you back to Kensington Place in the not-too-distant future!

Regards,

Austen

A fab, genuinely boutique hotel with just a few rooms and personal service, while meeting 5 star standards.

We had one of the rooms on the other side of the pool which was a good space with a great and sizeable bathroom. It was clean and well appointed.

We were really well looked after by the staff, who were knowledgeable and keen to help organise (they booked us dinner for every night of our stay "just in case" as we'd enquired about restaurants and were then to busy to get back to them).

I would note we had a car which I felt was pretty essential for getting around so if you are not going to have one you may want to be in the centre of Camps Bay or similar but I felt the car was key to us seeing all Cape Town had to offer anyway.

This was a great hotel in a lovely city. We spent three nights here with our two teenage children. Austen welcomed us so warmly and all the staff were really friendly. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable and well appointed. The views from the balcony were lovely and the pool area a real bonus. Cannot think of anything that I would change!

This lovely hotel is just up the hill, easy to find. When we arrived at Kensington Place, we were greeted by warm smiles and invited to take a seat by the fire in the tastefully decorated lounge and order any drink we desired whilst we check in. At our room we found a complimentary bottle of wine! Our room was very large with an hip designed, and a great bathroom. There is even a small pool and a fantastic garden. The fact that Austin and his staff had gone to the trouble of booking a mix of some of Cape Town's best restaurants was a big bonus. We stayed 4 nights and would not have got into these places without prior bookings! The breakfasts were to die for. A top hotel.
