A wonderful hotel driven by customer service, with friendly staff and a most dynamic hands on GM !
The relaxing peaceful grounds were a most welcoming setting for our production crew working round the clock.
The Winston management and staff were exceptionally flexible and accommodating with our specific needs.
A home away from home !
We will be back for sure !
most recommendable hotel, that cares about the guests !

We are usualy looking for an affordable luxury hotel to make our stay special when visiting Gauteng and stayed at the hotel for two nights. It's a nice small hotel with wonderful quirky decor, but still modern. The room was very spacious and comfortable. It's also located near Rosebank and major shopping destinations and walking distance from the Rosebank Gautrain station.

The only problem we had was a cold water shower (seems that the geizer was off). Although the staff is very friendly and helpfull, it was clear that they are overworked (maybe working too long hours?) The setting of the breakfast area near the swimming pool was very nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something special.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private courtyard or balcony

My wife and I stayed for three nights in February, Amazing is all we can say. The warmth of the staff, the décor and the services are incredible. The attention to detail in every aspect made our stay absolutely magical.nothing was overlooked. We enjoyed our first night's evening meal so much that we decided to have all our meal-times in the restaurant at the hotel – the food is incredible. We later discovered that the hotel had recently appointed a new chef, whom we had the privilege to meet – what incredible food he creates! The rooms and public areas of this property are simply stunning, as are all the people who work there – nothing is too much trouble for them, and everything is done with great style and finesse. The beds and the bed linen are the most comfortable we have ever encountered in any hotel around the world. We shall definitely be returning to The Winston Hotel, as soon as possible.

We stayed at this hotel for a work conference and the venue was a superb location for convenience and catered to all the conference needs, also the staff were extremely courteous and helpful.They were also accomodating to allow for teh late evening "socialising" which ran till the early hours of the morning.Overall a superb smallish, intimate break away venue.

Special design, very relaxed, calm, safe, close to many interesting sites, highly recommended. The only thing, call SA cabs instead of the ones that the hotel uses as the rates are much better.

My stay at the Winston Hotel was definately an experience to remember. Superb accomodation, a breathe-taking garden area, delicious food and excellent staff are but a few of the luxuries this unique boutique hotel has to offer. The flawless decor allows one to enjoy a true African colonial feel, whilest still maintaining a home away from home comfort. The hotel is located in a prime position with easy access to shopping malls transport and the likes. I fully recommend The Winston.
