I recently was on a business trip to Cape Town and stayed at Winchester Mansions for two nights. This was my fourth time there and I must say I love the cosiness of the hotel and its friendly staff. Taking walks along the promenade after a busy day of meetings is so therapeutic, and I like the fact that the... More

The Winchester Mansions was so much more than we expected. From the moment we stepped inside the door our experience was nothing less than perfect. The rooms were very well appointed, always clean, beds turned back. The menu has a great selection. Dinner was great, breakfast great, the whole experience was fantastic. We did not want to leave.

Stayed with my wife 28.03 - 2.04.15. Made to feel so welcome particularly by Linda at reception. She ironed out problems with local taxi firms (many drivers have no idea where they're going and expect you to pay for their mistakes). The room we had was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. The food in the bar and restaurant was... More
