Excellent lounge settings and atmosphere to relax after a long day of sight seeing. Staff is really helpful, but their speed of service can be improved. Took a while to get our order although the drinks arrived quickly

Having returned from a 15 night stay at W.M. It gives me great pleasure to review this very special hotel. This is my third stay at W. M. my first being some 14 years ago. The charm and character of the hotel has been retained which I believe makes this place very different to many other 4 star hotels in... More

This was our first trip to Cape Town and from being greeted at the airport buy the Winchester Mansions shuttle to being shuttled to Rovos Rail station it was fantastic. The reception was extremely friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We were taken to any restaurant we liked and then picked up. The city tour bus stop is outside... More

Let me start with the best bits. On our arrival at reception we were greeted by an extremely friendly and overly pregnant lady called Bianca. She was so lovely and helpful and an asset to the Winchester Mansions. Selfishly on our behalf I have to say it was unfortunate that no more than 12 hours after checking us in she... More

I stayed here for 5 nights while on a business trip. The hotel is a little old, the main reception area a bit old fashioned but this was all overshadowed by the fantastically friendly staff, the beautiful courtyard and the great room I had. It has a great view over the see, is 5 - 10 minutes from the V&A... More

My wife and I just completed first trip to Africa and it was an overall outstanding experience. The Winchester Mansions was a surprise bonus. Expected a basic B&B, but the staff, food, service, hospitality (Bianca and Theia especially), room, etc were outstanding. Highlights included scrumptious finger food in the lounge from the on premise restaurant, Oscar's. Beve and Mark Janosky

We were traveling with a group of 50 to Cape Town and were exhausted upon arrival. Some of us were singles in a 2 bed room. When we realized the beds were made up for a couple, we called reception. Housekeeping immediately came in and separated and re-made the beds. It was incredible how quickly they responded to so many... More

I have just come back from a week in Cape Town, staying at Winchester Mansions. I travelled with my wife, brother and his wife. From the moment we arrived the staff and the service we received from them was exceptional. They couldn't do enough to help and make our stay with them as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
