Cape Town City Center
Excellent location, very beautiful hotel”
I loved the hotel. It's location is great because is right in front of the ocean and also in front of the hop on- hop off bus. You can walk around and I felt safe.
Good Re-innovated Hotel, but some staff!!!!!!”
It a good re innovated hotel in good location majority of the staff are good. Only 1 staff blond lady in the reception is rude. The restaurant variety is suitable for the west only (Non Halal)
Friendly, Charming hotel in great location”
Breakfast excellent watching the paragliders come down,; Harvey’s bar great place for sundowners. Friendly and helpful staff. Sea Point promenade and Sea Point high street close by. Pool area very adequate; jazz on Sunday; bright well equipped rooms; off street and secure car parking. My favourite Cape Town hotel.
First class staff, friendly,respectful, could not do enough for us. The hotel was really lovely.”
No disappoint, breakfasts were first class as was all the staff from the Management to the drivers. We were so impressed with the quality of the hotel and the service from lovely, warm friendly staff.Excellent hotel. Thank you
Excellent Hotel ”
Excellent Hotel, service and staff. Love the location and sunset from the hotel bar.
Don't have rooms on 3rd floor as the side rooms have sloping roofs and you will bang your head if over 5ft 6in ! Had a lovely room but couldn't walk around it ! Breakfast and staff are good though
Lovely old world hotel”
Facing the sea on one side and Table Mountain and Lions Head on the other this is a charming hotel which was a great choice. It is about an hours walk from the Waterfront district, but there is a free , on-demand shuttle service there every day. However the walk home along the coast as the sun sets is amazing. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the restaurant food was very good. We were upgraded at no extra cost to a bigger room on check-in which also went down well. Beds comfy and air con works well.
Definitely will be back
Best stay in Sea point
Great Value, Location and Experience”
On my first-ever trip to South Africa, I wanted to visit Cape Town based on its beauty in pictures and botany (I have a degree in horticulture and most of the plant species in my home locale are identical to those in Cape Town's Kirstenbosch Gardens). I debated about what part of town to stay in and ultimately decided on Sea Point for the ocean view and to be out of the hubbub of the city center. Winchester Mansions looked like it had an old world style and charm, which attracted me, as I travel for work domestically and am always staying in contemporary hotels with no history. I couldn't have been more satisfied. The rooms and baths are European in design and roomy enough to be comfortable. Decor is stylish, beds comfortable, and every amenity is provided, including turn-down service. The breakfast buffet was beautifully stocked. Hotel and restaurant staff were friendly and so accomodating! Special thanks to Ian, Linda, Nadia and Goodwill for personalizing my stay.
Incredible stay at Winchester ”
Loved everything about this hotel! Stayed in a standard room which was massive by hotel standards ...the bed was incredibly comfortable which is always an issue for me when I go away. The location is unbeatable... the staff were the friendliest I’ve ever experienced in any hotel from the doorman to the waitrons in the restaurant! They really made you feel like you were at home and nothing was too much trouble! Thanks especially to Linda who allowed me to check out at 1 pm because of a flight delay. I would highly recommend this quaint hotel with its old world charm and a lovely energy!
Best hotel in Sea point ”
Pricey but outstanding
definitely would stay there again
The hotel is right on the water. The room was huge and beautiful. The staff was exceptional. I would definitely come back.
Very nice Mansion Hotel in Cape Town”
Walking distance to the seashore, very nice boutique hotel. Clean room, nice staff, good facilities - except they don't have sleeping slippers in the room and we didn't get any before we left. (stay there for 2 nights). Overall, very good stay. OK breakfast, but not too much to choose.
Pricey but we were there over NYE”
Great hotel in great location. Staff were very helpful as well. Was quite expensive for SA but we did book relatively late for NYE so our fault somewhat.
Vacation in Cape Town ”
The Winchester offers visitors a prime location as you are literally on the beach front where you can enjoy walking along Sea Point's iconic promenade! The hotel has been there forever so it's not going to give you that modern feeling but if you are looking fir a classic hotel with excellent staff, then I would certainly choose this! The free shuttle within a few km ( which needs to be pre-booked) is a great convenience. I was disappointed that the hotel doesn't offer ' skinny' or non/ fat milk at breakfast or at any other time. I would recommend that they do provide this in the future! Breakfasts and traditional tea and scones are great but take all other meals elsewhere as Caoe Town is the culinary capital of the world!
Exceptional staff and lication”
All excellent, not a single downside to this hotel
Very traditional hotel with very friendly staff”
We were really pleased with our choice in Cape Town Accommodation. The courtyard was really pretty just a shame it wasn't warm enough to eat outside. The rooms had recently been refurbished you could still smell the fresh paint. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. This was a great location with plenty of restaurants on Main St and opposite the pick-up open top bus tour.
