Kensington Place


This has always featured in any line up of the city’s top boutique hotels. Kensington Place still ticks every box: classy yet comfortable womb-like rooms you’ll hardly ever want to leave; excellent service; small but sexy public spaces; and a great Higgovale location overlooking the city and harbour. There is a small pool and courtyard-style garden with comfortable, chic outdoor lounging areas. Most rooms have splendid city views. There’s a restaurant and bar with excellent wine and cocktail list. You won’t eat a better breakfast in the city either.


Why we like it

It’s intimate and personal, the ideal choice for a romantic break, and perfect for long-stay guests

Kloof Street’s bars and restaurants are only a 5 to 10-minute stroll away

Located in leafy Higgovale, in a forested ravine that runs into the city you have breathtaking views of Table Mountain

The chef who is always on duty for those who don’t feel like going out
