It has been called Cape Town’s ‘coolest bolt-hole’, and it’s easy to see why; edgy interiors blend handpicked designer furniture and African art, all wrapped up in seamless hospitality.

Hidden in the suburb of Higgovale, just below Table Mountain, this hotel is close to all the city offers, from nightlife to beaches.  

Each thoughtfully designed suite has a unique identity and reflects the well-travelled owner’s meticulous eye for detail. 

Breakfast is served when you want it, so there’s no need to watch the clock, and room service is 24 hours too. 

The setting is sublime. Table Mountain rises up behind it and it has views of the Lion’s Head to the left and the city below. 


Surrounding area

High up in the upscale suburb of Higgovale, Kensington Place is surrounded by beautiful private homes yet rests within walking distance of chic cafes and restaurants at the top end of Kloof Street.
