My mother and I stayed for 2 nights in early February. Great location, comfortable and spacious room. Lovely welcome from Linda on reception. Good food with only challenge being slow service at dinner - this was possibly due to a busy restaurant and Emanuel ensured we were well looked after. Nice breakfast with great service from Nadia.

Lovely bar with terrace, very friendly staff, good food, "popular" prices :) The swimming pool is small but if you are coming to enjoy that shouldn't be problem... I just loved... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel in Sea Point, and found it comfortable and convenient. It says it's a four star, but if felt more like a five star. The Sea Point location was great, a bit out of the center, but a short taxi ride to central Cape Town. The location is right on the water, but in... More

Very attractive and well-run establishment in a fine old 1950's building on Beach Road, facing the ocean. It's the sort of place that would show it's age badly if it were not very well maintained and managed. As it is, the rooms are clean and well decorated and all the public areas look fresh and inviting. Food is served in... More

Every aspect of our experience was exceptional. We booked a family suite and were upgraded to a gorgeous two bedroom apartment with a large living area and ocean views from both bedrooms. The suite was beautifully appointed and very clean. We had not planned on eating many meals in the hotel restaurant, but the food was so good and the... More

I adore this hotel. It's old world charm and splendour remains consistent year after year, and the views never fail to delight. From the moment you arrive, the staff make sure to create a warm and inviting welcome with efficient and friendly check in and porter services. Rooms are spacious and opulently vintage - a home away from home. Requests... More

Winchester Mansions is a lovely hotel in a great location with delightful staff that also provides courtesy transport to the Water Front. Our problems were entirely associated with their inability to satisfy the accommodation needs of my aged father and me. We booked through Booking.com. Because I was travelling with my father we made a special request during the online... More

Lovely hotel with character. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. We made very good use of the shuttle, the drivers were all very friendly and informative. It's situated in a good position with lovely walks along the sea front.
