Kensington Place was all we could have asked for after a long trip from Livingstone (Zambia) via Johannesburg to Cape Town. We picked up a hire car at the airport from Around About Cars, who I would highly recommend for their service and value for money - see their web site (www.aroundaboutcars.com).
Only a 25 minute drive from the airport if you don’t get lost – which we did! Our room in the hotel had everything and the service and friendliness of the staff was much appreciated. The hotel itself and the décor is beautiful and breakfast was an absolute feast – no need for lunch. The hotel is very close to downtown, Table Mountain cable car and lots of restaurants - see separate restaurant reviews.
The only irritant was no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, or an iron or ironing board, which seems to be an occasional peculiarity of South Africa. No problem in getting tea delivered to the room or items ironed for a small fee.
Two days was not enough in Cape Town and we will surely come back to Kensington Place when we return, which we are sure to do.
