“A most enjoyable place to stay”
Reviewed 7 June 2009

2Inn1 Kensington is one of the best bed and breakfast establishments we have ever stayed in. The staff went out of their way to make this a special time for us both. The property was so well presented, and the attention to detail was amazing. The breakfasts were wonderful and what was nice about them was they were varied each day. We felt very secure and the welcome glass of wine when we returned from our jaunts around Cape Town hit the spot.

We were at the 2inn1 for 4 nights and loved it.

Good points:
-Christopher and the other staff made us feel at home and looked after us very well, booking restaurants etc for us, and giving us drinks and snacks in the evening.
-We looked forward to breakfast every morning; couldn’t have wanted more for choice and quality.
-Great (safe) location, we walked to the water front, and there are great restaurants close by.
- Safe parking.
- The room was amazing; well designed and thought out.
- The house was also great – the décor was great and it had a nice relaxed and chilled vibe.

A lot of attention is given to the detail here, we really couldn’t have wanted for more. We were out of season, but I imagine relaxing by the pool is fab in the sun.

Bad points.
None really – even breakfast was served till midday! Perfect.

Everything about this cute stylish hotel blew us away, especially the personal service. The owner and staff constantly helped us plan and orchestrate our activities. They always had a warm helpful attitude and truly seemed to want us to squeeze the most fun out of Cape Town that we could.

The European style breakfast was a wonderful start to each day. We often skipped lunch because of it! In addition to the scrumptious buffet, the staff made whatever extra items we desired, such as omelets, hot chocolate, espresso, etc.

The decor is hip and attractive throughout the hotel, from African art to slick German fixtures in the bathroom.

It was too cold to use the pool, but we did use the hot tub. We felt pampered by the arrival of red wine and snacks. In warmer months, the outdoor areas would be a lovely place to loung around.

We will recommend this hotel to all our friends and can't wait to return.

We had a wonderful stay at the 2INN1. It is a lovely boutique guesthouse with excellent service. The decor is very modern and trendy. The hosts were extremely helpful, always available to help with any questions.

A lot of nice extra touches eg turning down our bed at night with a lovely chocolate left on the pillow, free drinks, around the clock security etc.

We were not flying out until 6pm and we were allowed to keep our room till late free of charge which meant we could have a shower before heading to the airport. This was offered without even needing to ask.

Overall we found the service in South Africa second to none but this guesthouse was extra special.

We stayed here for 12 days on our second trip to Cape Town. We agree to the other reviews 100% percent. Location, hotel, rooms, interior, spa, very very personal service, breakfast & light lunch, outside area are beautiful designed, amazing, fantastic and 100% perfect - it couldn't be any better. We enjoyed it so much that we are already busy planning another trip to Cape Town in October this year - and we will definitely stay at this beautiful hideaway again. A big THANK YOU to Chris, Klaus, Steffi, Nomhle and all the wonderful, friendly, smiling, helpful team at 2inn1 who made our break away from home to a very special one. We can highly recommend the spa treatments done by 'Nomhle' the inhouse therapist. We never relaxed so well in our holidays.
Guys, we wish you all the best with your great place and hope to see you again later this year. Thank you so much & keep well !!! Dan & Pet

We stayed at 2Inn1 Kensington from April 11 to April 14 of this year. It is immaculate, well designed, wonderful food, very friendly. More like a hotel than a guest house or B&B. Pool, hot tub, sitting area outside that has dramatic views of table mountain. Exceptionally modern and clean design with shower that had floor to ceiling glass. In-room DVD, cell phone. Couldn't ask for more.
