Kensington Place is a contemporary boutique hotel situated in the vibrant city of Cape Town in South Africa’s stunning Western Cape. Located in the leafy residential suburb of Higgovale, this stylish property sits in a tranquil, elevated setting, boasting wonderful views of the city and the mighty Table Mountain. The hotel offers just eight chic, bespoke rooms along with airy and comfortable communal areas, personal, friendly hosting, a peaceful garden, and a swimming pool. A 25-minute drive from Cape Town’s international airport, Kensington Place is just a few minutes’ walk from the hip restaurants and bars of trendy Kloof Street, and a short drive from Cape Town’s key visitor attractions and beaches. Urban yet tranquil, the hotel will appeal to travellers seeking a chic retreat away from the crowds but with easy access to the sights and amenities of this dynamic metropolis.

Guest areas include a contemporary lounge and bar leading onto an outdoor terrace for alfresco dining with great views of the iconic Table Mountain. An all-day menu includes hearty breakfasts and a focus on seasonal, local produce. Outside, verdant gardens house an inviting pool with loungers. On-site parking is available, and hotel guests receive complimentary membership of a nearby gym. Visitor attractions, including the V&A Waterfront, the Table Mountain cable car, and the popular beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, are all a short drive away.

The accommodation comprises eight stylish, contemporary rooms with sleek ensuite bathrooms, featuring bath, shower, and WC. Each air-conditioned room has twin or double beds, a minibar, flat screen TV, iPod dock, a guest laptop, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
