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. We booked... More

This hotel is a true treasure. It is located at a 5min drive from the V&A-Waterfront and provides a shuttle service. The inner court is absolutely beautiful. Our room had everything we needed to feel well. The breakfast offers a huge choice. The service was excellent and reached beyond expectations. We also booked the 3G-Dinner which was a great experience,... More

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

We stayed at Winchester Mansions for 4 nights at the beginning of September and it was a joy. The staff make this hotel and could not do more for you.

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.
