Kensington Place

Found in Higgovale, one of Cape Town's pretty suburbs, Kensington Place offers a chic contemporary retreat in close proximity to all of the Mother City's many attractions.

Wonderfull small boutique hotel on the shadow of Cape mountain with excellent service and could not do enough for us. Like a home away from home. The breakfast was also nice.
