We had a fantastic and all to brief 3 nights at Kensington Place and it was a incredible experience.

Hope and Gillian were helpful from the moment we arrived and throughout the trip. The small nature of the 8 room hotel made us feel like a true guest not just a number. They book

We stayed at Kensington Place 3 nights in late October while visiting Cape Town. The property is very conveniently located near Table Mountain and within walking distance (although downhill) to popular Kloof Street restaurants. Gillian was very helpful in planning our days each

We spent three lovely nights here and enjoyed everything from the delicious made to order breakfast to the outstanding view from our private balcony of Cape Town. The desk clerks were all very informed, pleasant and even made all of our evening reservations for dinner at some ver

Beautiful spot in safe, upscale residential area within a short Uber ride to a couple of excellent restaurants. Friendly staff took the liberty of making some dinner reservations ahead of our arrival. Solid breakfast menu included. Rooms are unique and have interesting design

We recently spent our last night in Cape Town at Kensington Place, our only regret is not staying there earlier in our trip. It was such great value and cheaper than another hotel we stayed in close by which cost a lot more but didn't in any way meet the service level at Kensingt

we are staying here next week and will need transportation from the airport......please advise as to best options.
We are most interested in having a direct view of Table Mountain from our room. It is not that clear from either the reviews or the photos if that is true. There are several photos of Table Mountain from what appears to be the common areas. Could someone share what is true?
Thank you to everyone that assisted in answering this question. Some of the rooms have partial views of the mountain and the city from the balconies only. As our hotel is situated at the base of Table Mountain and faces away from it, none of our rooms have full views of the city or the mountain. In order for us to accommodate all reservations, we are unable to grantee certainly room requests but we will try our utmost to match your requirements. Warm regards, the Kensington Place team
