Kensington Place Hotel

Not many travellers have heard of the leafy Cape Town suburb of Higgovale. Which is excellent, because it preserves the image of Kensington Place as being a cool, calm, laidback bolthole for those in the know.

As one of the cognoscenti, you can expect boutique-style comfort, a quietly confident ambience and style in every touch – from the décor of your suite to the design of the restaurant tableware. You can also expect a setting that backs onto Table Mountain, with far-reaching views over the city, harbour and out to sea, plus easy access to the vivid night and day life of Cape Town itself.
