Myself and my girlfriend (29 & 28) are on night 4 out of 6 here in Kensington Place. I CANNOT put into words how fantastic this place is. We arrived late afternoon on a Sunday and were greeted by Michael (wonderful smiling chap!) and the best complimentary champagne we've ever had (its local and they arent allowed to call it champagne but I promise you its better than anything that comes out of France!!). Our bags were whisked away and we sat in the bar (which, as the Tatler website states, is SEXY AS HELL!). Well, after the champagne we were asked whether we would like to go to the room but it was so nice siting there we decided to have another drink from the short but excellent cocktail menu. If you're from the UK then you're used to paying 8-14 pounds for a nice cocktail. Here they cost 30 rand which is just over 2 pounds...... oh dear! The best on the menu is the Gin smash (Gin, honey, lemon,fresh mint and brown sugar).
The rooms (ours was room 4) was stunning. Huge double balcony with views over the cape and Table Mt to our right. Beautifully decorated with heated floors throughout. In fact, the whole place is decorated beautifully.
I must go as another 2 Gin Smashes have just ben sent to the rom but before I do there is one thing that makes this place sooo amazing; THE STAFF!!!!!
Sasha, Ashley, Micheal and EVERYONE ELSE, thank you all so much. Each and every day you made us feel as if we we're the only people here. You are truly wonderful.
Well, off now to enjoy our remaining 2 days. TRUST ME ON THIS, YOU DONT WANT TO STAY ANYWHERE ELSE IN CAPE TOWN.
THIS IS THE ONLY 'PLACE' TO BE!!!! :)
