Kensington Place

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spent four nights at this lovely, small hotel slightly off the beaten track of Cape Town, at the base of Table Mountain. The architecture is contemporary, the decor eclectic with an African flair.My room (#2) opened to a balcony that had a beautiful view of Table Mountain to the right and Cape Town Central including the harbor straight ahead. The queen bed was very comfortable and the heated floors most welcome on the chilly July mornings. Complimentary breakfast served in the sunny dining area included a selection of fresh-squeezed juices, speciality egg dishes, brewed to order beverages, and freshly baked breads. Service by the staff was seamless and always with a smile. The hotel was spotless. The staff was very knowledgable regarding tourist venues and willing to make such arrangements. As the hotel is located in a residential area, I heard several dogs barking in the early evening (a bit annoying) but they did not awaken me during the night. If you or a member of your party is physically challenged, be aware I did not see wheelchair ramps or an elevator nor do I think the showers are wheelchair friendly. You will need taxis or a rental car as well. You can't walk to most of the typical tourist attractions. Despite these few drawbacks, I still rate this hotel five stars.
