I was back in cape town for business reason and I tried this hotel for the very first time. I had a nice experience. The room was comfortable and looking inside the lovely courtyard where you can have a lovely breakfast (try the jazz brunch on sunday morning). Is situated at Sea Point, ocean view with a lovely promenade. The... More

Extremely family and child friendly but I would suitable for couples too. The suite was great - the view was stunning - the location excellent (with Shuttle buses to the... More

What a magical venue. Beautiful hotel and a fantastic atmosphere. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we were seated in the courtyard. Such a varied menu and wonderful entertainment. Couldn't have asked for a better afternoon. You must put this on your 'to do' list

As a single woman I was concerned about sightseeing in Capetown, I needn't have worried. This hotel was superb and looked after my every need. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful and liaised on a daily basis with Ilios Tours on my behalf. The hotel is excellent with terrific facilities and all the extras such as a dressing... More

Second time we have stayed here. Why stay anywhere else? Excellent friendly staff, superb breakfasts. Free shuttles to/from the waterfront is a great idea. The sea views from the hotel are wonderful. What a great hotel to spend our honeymoon in. Well done.

I can only comment on the Sunday brunch at this hotel which I'm glad to say was recommended to me. Brunch is from 11am to 2pm during which time food and drink is copious and is accompanied by a live jazz band and singer. The variety and quantity of food is excellent and the staff very friendly and courteous. This... More

The Winchester Mansions is in a good location and serviced well by the City Bus Tours buses that have a bus stop just across the road. The service in the bar area and reception was very good. It was enjoyable to sit on the terrace and watch the Para gliders coming into land on the lawns across the road. Our... More

Even if you have an ocean view from the outside restaurant, we preferred to be seated inside and it was nice and fresh to be in the Courtyard next to the fountain. The focaccia was nice and nice choice of wine by the glass; ask for blue if you wish rare cooked meat. The food had a good taste and... More

Stayed from 4-11 November. As a single female traveller visiting Cape Town for the first time both friends and family had expressed some concern about my trip. They need not have worried. The hotel was fantastic and the staff can't do enough for you. My room was first rate, and the real coffee and cafetière was a real plus. The... More

My wife and I have had the good fortune to spend 3 days here, as part of her birthday present. This is a lovely traditional hotel, not bland business accommodation, and highly recommended.
