Kensington Place

****

Kensington Place is Cape Town’s original boutique bolthole, located on the slopes of Table Mountain, a stroll from all the action, and a drive from amazing beaches. Discerning urbanites after a cool city break benefit from its Kloof Street position, but it's removed enough to allow them to enjoy some romance and R&R. In addition to the hotel’s design appeal, superb service makes this sanctuary special, along with little extras such as free champagne and oysters.

Highlights:

  • Cape Town's original boutique hotel

    A stroll from lively bars and restaurants

    A short drive from beaches and winelands

Smith extra

A glass of champagne on arrival, and a complimentary bottle of wine. SilverSmith and GoldSmith members staying three nights or more also receive two tickets to Table Mountain

In the know

Also need to know:

All rooms are non-smoking; ashtrays are provided on terraces and in the lounge bar. There's a five-night minimum stay from 20 december to 2 January.

Packing tips:

No need to take your towels or beach bags in summer – the hotel provides these, as well as factor-30 sun lotion by the pool. In winter they'll lend you umbrellas. And remember your gym kit to take advantage of the access to Virgin Active.

Dress code:

Dress up as much as you want if you plan to hit CT's hippest nightspots.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

It's the fourth day of our honeymoon and for the first time Mr Smith and I find ourselves alone. Having temporarily lost my sanity I’d concocted some hare-brained scheme to take 30 of our closest friends on a whirlwind trip of the Western Cape directly after our wedding, and so my new husband and I find ourselves chaperoning, directing and pandering to a big bunch of badly behaved adults. Instead of newlyweds we feel like schoolmaster and matron responsible not only for everyone’s safety and wellbeing but for ensuring that a jolly good time is had by all. We’ve played with the penguins on Bou

Dining information

Restaurant:

Light, healthy food, using the freshest of ingredients. Lunch is low-key and along the lines of the room-service menu (see below); supper is private-dining style. Our favourite feature is that breakfast is served all day.

Top table:

Grab a table on the porch – the weather is almost always fair, but even when it isn't entirely lovely, this is a wonderful spot.

Room service:

Pastas, salads, open sandwiches, fresh fruit, cheese and antipasto platters available throughout the day.

Hotel bar:

Open 24 hours a day; there’s always a smiling soul on hand to mix you a cocktail. The Kensington Place cocktail is a mix of vodka, lime, soda water and bitters – perfect for balmy summer evenings.
