We considered all the Cape Town hotels - from the Mount Nelson onwards- & used tripadvisor to help us decide. We're glad we did. Kensington Place is fantastic.
The hotel is really well designed, with good fittings & high quality furnishings. Only 8 rooms makes it intimate & focussed on service. We had room 2 - excellent. Good size, excellent big bed, large balcony with good views, chairs & steamer loungers. Also, something more hotels should give you in each room, a choice of different pillow types already in the room, rather than a pillow menu. Bathroom was compact but everything had been well thought out & worked well. Sofa & large flat screen TV in the room with satellite, bar & emergency kit - mints, condom etc. Wifi laptop provided in each room as well, with no extra charge. Overall, modern, clean design that was comfortable & useable without trying to be too cool for its own good. Bar, terrace, small garden etc were excellent. Pleasing on the eye but v comfortable & easy to make yourself at home in. V comfortable to lie around & sunbathe.
Staff were v helpful, especially Sasha. Good suggestions, getting tables for supposedly full restaurants, rearranging bookings, getting taxis & fixing the price beforehand so you weren't ripped off. V quiet in the evening as no restaurant but you could spend a quiet evening in the bar & they will organise light snacks. Breakfast & lunch were as good as anywhere else in a boutique hotel.
It felt good to return here at the end of every day. We will return there next time without hesitation. The only slight problem was that there were some noisy neighbourhood dogs that barked & set each other off occasionally. Not at night though. Even though I like silence normally, this wouldn't stop us returning.
