I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. The location was great as it was across the road from the beach and it was lovely going for walks on the promenade. The room was spacious, clean and serviced to the highest standard every day. There was also free Wi-Fi in the room (up to 250 mbs per day). The hotel... More

This was a wonderful hotel with superb service. Front desk staff exceeded my expectations. Great location on the beach where you could enjoy a glass of wine. Menu in restaurant was fabulous. Rooms were also very nice. Would definitely stay here again!

OK so that was exactly what it was. We arrived in Cape Town on the red eye and were taken straight to our hotel. Despite being still quite early they booked us in and got our quite spacious suite ready, which was nice of them. The suite was ok, a bit jaded here and there and the decor was quite... More

If you want a place in Cape Town that is central to everything, is comfortable, has amazing staff, and goes beyond anything you could imagine when it comes to service…. This is the place to stay. My wife and I had been traveling from America and had stayed in several other hotels in various cities in South Africa. Without hesitation... More

This is one of the most regal and oldest hotels along the coast, where you can walk across the street and see the whales migrating if you are lucky! The hotel itself is beautiful and very well kept. Staff was helpful and welcoming. The night we stayed it was cold and rainy so we decided to eat dinner in at... More

After our 20+ hours in the air, the Winchester Mansions was waiting for us. We had a late night arrival, but our reservation was there and the staff was waiting for us. This is a lovely, very English style, facility. The rooms are not large but very comfortable. The beds are wonderful. Or reservation included a wonderful breakfast. The dining... More
