Left this hotel just this morning after 3 nights. The service was so excellent it felt like we were the only guests. The design of the hotel is simply wonderful and those tiny little extra details they have..... I just wish every hotel in the world had this level of care and attention. Please trust their restaurant choices as they are truly delightful! Oh and their breakfast is just Wow!

Room Tip: No onsight gym but the Virgin Fitness centre they give you access to is the best gym I have ever been to!

Kensington Place is an amazing place to stay. A small, boutique hotel where there service is so amazing and relaxed, it is like staying in someone's home. Sasha and the entire staff were so helpful and accommodating and the facilities and meals were great.

When we arrived and were told the hotel had made dinner reservations for us for every night of our stay, we were thrilled. This hotel is all about the little touches and and the staff treat you like one of the family - thank you, we'll definitely come back one day!

We stayed at Kensington for five nights during our 10 year anniversary Africa trip. Loved this place! We had a great room with awesome views! Loved the boutique hotel feel where you get extra attention. They gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne for our anniversary. Staff (Michael and Mark) were great and so helpful! We met Chris, the proprietor who gave us fantastic restaurant/winery recommendations. Overall, a marvelous stop while in Cape Town. We'll certainly go back to Kensington!

My wife and I recently stayed 4 nights at Kensington. It was one of our best stays ever.

The property is set in a quiet residential neighborhood but within walking distance of most of the city. Amazing views of Table Mountain and Lions Head. Reserve room #1 for two patios with excellent views and a nice fireplace.

The entire place is very modern, super clean, and very welcoming. The breakfasts were amazing, and the staff are among the best in the business.

We hated to leave. Don't bother staying anywhere else. This is the place.

We were lucky enough to stay at Kensington Place as part of our Honeymoon back in 2009 and it remains, to this day, the measuring rod by which all other hotels should be measured.

Indeed, it hasn't yet been bettered. The rooms, public spaces, staff, food, location etc etc were sheer perfection- we can't speak highly enough of this place- and no amount of superlatives can do it justice.

It was also a lovely treat, and pleasant surprise on check-in, to have been pre-booked into all the best Cape Town restaurants (FYI: the food in Cape Town is astonishingly good).

I'm presuming Kensington Place is still as good as it was back in 2009- if it is, you really must do yourself a favour and stay here immediately!
