Cape Town-based Winchester Mansions advertises the slogan 'a home away from home' and it truly was for me: a great location right by the Sea Point Promenade, lovely and clean room, friendly and attentive staff ready to help you with anything - I've definitely fallen in love with Cape Town and when (not if!) I come back one day, I'll... More

Had a lovely few days here. Staff were all warm, welcoming and helpful. The room was comfortable and spacious with a great view over the ocean. An excellent location with access to the V&A Waterfront and opposite the city sight seeing bus stop.

Our first few days at this beautiful hotel made me think that I would be giving a 4.5 star review. Sadly however, that soon vanished. I will make one very important point first though. The staff working here are superb - friendly, helpful and always polite. The problem, which I must add is probably a one off, lies solely with... More

This place was like a home from home. Friendly staff from the moment we arrived. Linda joked with us at reception and kept smiling for the whole 5 days we were there. We had a family suite, which upon arrival had a complimentary bottle of wine and snacks and was very spacious. My some effectively had his own room and... More

This was my second stay at The Winchester. I am South African born (grew up in Sea Point) and always loved the hotel. It is a gracious place, with a welcoming staff and excellent service. Harvey's Bar is a fabulous meeting place (locals are frequent patrons of the bar) and the view from the terrace is just gorgeous. It felt... More

Always nice to come back to Winchester Mansions and see that they still have that "Winchester Mansions" touch and feeling of brilliant service and good atmosphere, always a good stay there. Very good value for money. A plus is the free transfer to Waterfront and to the ares around the hotel.
