Kensington Place is an award winning 5 star boutique hotel in a residential part of the city. It offers both tranquillity and proximity to the attractions of Cape Town. The Victorian building was renovated in a contemporary style at the beginning of this century.

Urban chic is the phrase which comes to mind for the interior with rich velvets and bronze giving off a sensuous feel. The exterior and garden is more organic with indigenous cape vegetation, stone pebble walkways and teak decking around an intimate swimming pool area. There exists a certain harmony here with the owners intention of creating a Zen like atmosphere successfully established.

As befits a boutique establishment like Kensington Place Cape Town with only 8 rooms (and a staff compliment of 16,) this is really a place where you can kick your shoes off and relax as if you were at home but with 5 star treatment. There is no menu apart from breakfast which you can order all day, so the resident chef can make up anything you like. The manager and staff are relaxed but professional and arrange and cater for your every whim. The public spaces are again intimate and cosy.

Rooms & Suites:

The rooms at Kensington Place follow the same design theme of the rest of the hotel. Simply furnished in luxuriant materials combined with white walls radiate a feeling of tranquillity. The bathrooms, whilst not large, are again understated but elegant. Simplicity does not mean lack of mod cons and all rooms have large flat screen TVs, Ipod docking stations, and laptop computers as standard. Beach bags and basic exercise equipment are also provided.

Most rooms have private patio balconies offering views of either the mountain or the city.

Bathrooms really are a sensuous encounter, with features including custom made submerged bathtubs, dual showers, along with massive bath towels to wrap up in afterwards. A glass wall structure from a single bathroom even overlooks an exclusive outdoor exotic garden and pond.

Food & Wine:

As well as having all day breakfast, chefs are on standby day and night so whether you are coming back from a late night out and want a full course meal or a simple luncheon beside the pool or in your room, the chef will prepare a meal to your desire. There is no menu so you can order what you like. The standard of food is high with the style best described as modern European with African flavours and ingredients.
