In Cape Town trendy small guesthouses and hip boutique hotels with a personal touch are flourishing, including Kensington Place, right off Kloof Street. Located on the slopes of Table Mountain and a drive from Cape Town’s amazing beaches, Kensington Place in Higgovale attracts stylish romantics, city lovers and luxury lovers alike. Higgovale is an exclusive neighborhood of winding roads as well as architecturally audacious homes at the top of Kloof Nek where Table Mountain becomes Lion’s Head.
This urban oasis exudes an innate sense of style and genuine hospitality. In Cape Town a stay at Kensington Place means romance, carefree indulgence, matchless service and special little touches. It’s hard to beat its level of service. We love the extras such as welcome drinks & snacks, fresh flowers in the room and a gym bag with free passes for Virgin Active. Furthermore, Kensington Place is a pure, personal and peaceful place to stay with a homely, intimate feel. With Kensington Place it was like love at the first sight.
Surrounded by greenery, this luxury boutique bolthole has beautiful views of Cape Town, the harbor and Table Mountain. Each of the 8 inviting rooms and suites feature balconies, iPod docks, DVD players and bathrooms including divine Aromatherapy bath products. The cocoons of style, peace and relaxation are decorated with exquisite fabrics and elegant furnishings. Something really special is the “emergency box” stocked with such necessities as condoms and headache pills. Photography are a key part of the décor throughout. Chill in luxury, admire the mountain views and sleep in style.
Kensington Place indulges you with delicious food. A sublime breakfast until 15:00 is a boon. Be sure to try The Royale; soft poached eggs, smoked salmon and rocket served on a toasted English muffin and topped with homemade hollandaise sauce… Oh so yummy! Do you want something light & healthy? Order a fresh pressed juice and the homemade muesli with fruit and plain yoghurt. Everything here is made with love. Enjoy your meals inside or outside on the terrace.
In the summer lounge by the pool, while in the winter you can relax in the lobby bar with designer furnishing plus fireplace and soak up the relaxing atmosphere. Further activities include abseiling from the Table Mountain, join Austen’s photo walk in Cape Town or just explore the best attractions this South African city has to offer.
