This lovely, gracious hotel has one of the finest views of every aspect of Cape Town, nestled high up in a hilly realm and offering exquisite views of Table Mountain, the city, and the sea. The hotel is elegant but understated, with excellent art on the walls and exceptionally comfortable public spaces and guest rooms. It feels more like being a guest in someone’s beautiful home. The breakfast and snacks are always available at any time of day to suit each guest’s needs, and the food was excellent. But the crowning asset of this wonderful hotel is the excellent staff, across every role from the superb concierges/hotel managers to the wait staff to the maids and the doormen. Austin in particular was a treasure, proactively anticipating how we could best enjoy the city, helping facilitate every aspect of our stay, and responding to each request beyond the call of duty without ever being intrusive. His restaurant recommendations were superb. It does not hurt that he is handsome, charming, adaptable, and good-natured. He and the staff took the initiative to help us celebrate the birthday of one of our party with a bottle of champagne and an excellent cake. We would gladly come back to this treasure of a place.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor are especially nice, especially on the corners.

Just one night spent there, in Jan 13, and regrets to have to quit!
Excellent welcome, very comfortable and elegant lounge area, room impeccable, large and well designed (cupboards would need a bot of renovation), great bathroom - small balcony, direct independent access to the room we had with parking at the door (off street). Nice and affordable bar. We had no time to enjoy full breakfast but an excellent light one was served at 6am to our room to allow us early leave for the airport.
Price is up the level of the service, at least in Cape Town where tariffs are not often giving good value. A place to rest in warm luxury after a day exploring Cape Town

We arrived to be welcomed with open arms. I simply cannot rate this high enough, absolute perfection, we will return with our children and use it as a base before a family safari. fantastic night's sleep - everything was amazing. Great choice of food, cocktails even advice on local restaurants. Nothing was too much trouble at all. AMAZING.

Room Tip: They are all superb and to the same quality.

I'm flummoxed how anyone could not rate this place a 5 star property. From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we were royalty. Austin, the young GM, looks like he stepped off the cover of GQ. He immediately attended to our every need, and made reservations at restaurants he thought we would enjoy. All of them were top notch, and one we revisited it was so good. Mark the night manager was also alert to any request of ours. No question went unanswered or fully explained. This is how thoughtful they are. When learning one of our group had a birthday they made us a birthday cake AND contributed a bottle of champagne, gratis. This is what separates the good from the great, and this place is great. Another example? By the pool is a basket filled with sunscreen, towels and loads of other stuff for your use. It was if they anticipated your every need before you thought of it. Breakfast was a never ending feast served by a smiling Blessing. All of the staff were as happy as we were, except they were working and we were on vacation. Go figure. Just joyful and accommodating attitudes. The rooms were modern, not lacking anything, with oversized bathtubs you could swim in and enormous,sleep inducing beds. The hotel itself sits at the base of Table Mountain in a quiet residential section, but it is only 10 minutes away from just about any spot in the city. Add it up - fabulous service, beautiful rooms, superb breakfast (and the ability to make just about whatever you want when ever you want) in a secluded, tranquil setting. I recommend Kensington Place without hesitation to anyone who desires a pampered, chic hotel in Cape Town.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower room if you have trouble with the stairs.

If you like Radisson SAS, Hilton, Intercontinental, etc. please do not go there! This is special place for people looking for the best, for the charming atmosphere and personal touch. Jammy breakfast nice view and location. If coming from abroad and familiar with the local rules, places to go, to eat - you will be guided by the lovely owner or the team. Believe, recommendations are worth it. This would definitively be place to come back again!
