My stay at the Winston was a very brief one on my way to Cape Town from Johannesburg. The staff was professional and the large rooms very comfortable. Great breakfasts too! I would definitely consider a longer stay in the future.

I recently stayed a few days in Joburg at this hotel and it was the perfect way to wind down a nearly month long trip. Lovely courtyard with a small pool that made for a lovely view in the morning. I would make coffee in the room and just quietly stand on the balcony with a lovely view. Breakfast is...

Loved my stay at the Winston. Very beautiful old school with a modern edge. So much beauty to delight in in terms of touches and warm charm. But for a 5 star hotel the front office staff need more polish. A little naive and a few glitches which if it weren't touting 5 stars could be forgiven. Charging R2k for...

My husband and I stayed here for the first leg of our honeymoon trip. Beautiful decor and friendly - very professional staff. We loved the food and relaxed peaceful atmosphere. It was a wonderful place to transition from hectic travel mode to honeymoon vacation. Great pool, great location, beautiful grounds. We'd love to come back.

After over 2.5 months travelling, I spent 3 days at the Winston to recuperate and prepare for the next travels. A lovely place to relax, small but with all the amenities.
