Lodge Details


A small and luxurious boutique city hotel.


In the leafy suburb of Higgovale, Cape Town, Kensington Place rests on the slopes of Table Mountain, close to all of the vibrant city’s hot spots – yet with a surprisingly peaceful and secluded atmosphere.

Accommodation & Facilities

8 contemporary and tastefully decorated rooms are all spacious and clean with twin or king sized beds. All rooms are air conditioned and have a lap top, skype phone, electric safe and a nice terrace.

The Hotel has a great restaurant, comfortable lounge with plush sofas and a 24 hour bar which is fantastic for cocktails. The hotel has a very vibrant city feel, but feels away from the noise of the ‘real’ city.

Other facilities include a nice peaceful garden, plunge pool, library, off site parking and exercise facilities (such as tennis, aerobics and squash).


Breakfast is served all day, great for late risers spending the night out on the town! The food is tasty and healthy, using fresh, local ingredients. Room service at Kensington Place is 24 hours and has a similar menu as the restaurant at lunch. There are plenty of great restaurants, cafes and bars in the city to explore.
