Expert review of Kensington Place

This small property sets the bar for boutique hotel luxury.

One of the city's first boutique hotel properties, Kensington Place ticks many boxes for luxury-loving travellers who relish detail. Set in leafy Higgovale in the upper reaches of the city and underneath Table Mountain, the small eight-room property is a boon if privacy, peace and quiet are as much of a priority as proximity to the sights and sounds of the city. Spend lazy days on the pool deck, catch a cab down to town or take up the offer to have dinner booked at a local eatery. This is a place that's all about meeting your every need and making sure your batteries are utterly recharged.

Location: 

Higgovale is a smart, serene residential suburb in the upper reaches of the city, underneath Table Mountain.

Bedrooms: 

Each of the individually decorated suites is elegant with a sense of understated opulence. Pop your iPod into the docking station and catch up on emails on the laptop that's provided.

Public areas: 

Lounge on the outside terrace and take a dip in the plunge pool.

Eating and drinking: 

Enjoy a lavish breakfast served on your balcony or on the hotel terrace until 1pm, or ask to have dinner outside on the terrace - dinners are served three times a week on request.  The attitude here is to share as much of the city with guests as possible so reservations for both neighbourhood and happening restaurants are made prior to arrival and can be accepted or declined as you wish. There is an all day room service menu with open sandwiches, salads and pastas.

Leisure facilities: 

The garden and plunge pool provides delicious respite.

Service: 

The service levels at this boutique property are what set it apart. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble, staff are discreet and utterly enthusiastic and love nothing better than sharing the secrets of their city. The personalised approach extends to details like late check outs.
