Stayed here recently on our Honeymoon and the experience was fantastic.... It all started when we arrived and Austen, the hotel manager, sat down with us over some champagne. They had taken the fantastic step of booking us into restaurants on each of the four nights we were in Cape Town - and by an large they weren't places we would have chosen but were great local eateries. He also ran through a do and don't list for Cape Town and highly recommended the Old Biscuit Mill on a Saturday morning, which was a great steer. His help was very valuable in making best use of our time in Cape Town as our planning was a little rushed!
The location was great - at the foot of Table Mountain and very quiet. You need a taxi to get to most places, but that was fine as the hotel looked after all that very well - plus taxi's are quick and efficient.
The hotel looks amazing and the design and fit out is beautiful - we loved the small garden as well. Breakfasts were great on the terrace and the hose made muesli was so good we are tempted to try and make our own now we're back home!
The room itself was fantastic, spacious and comfortable with a lovely bathroom and a great view. We were bumped up from a normal room into a top floor suite and it was great. Free wifi was appreciated, although the connection was a little patchy.
Overall I would definitely recommend Kensington Place over the larger commercial hotels downtown. Great hotel with great service and a great feel.
