We stayed at the Winchester Mansions for four nights in June at the end of a two week tour of South Africa. To be fair the hotel is undergoing a major renovation of its kitchens and some of the rooms during the quieter winter period and this may have affected some of the services. The WM is a very pleasant, well appointed four star hotel with all the amenities and services you would expect. The staff are friendly and helpful and were keen to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The first room we were shown was quite small, a bit gloomy and next to some renovation work being conducted but an upgrade at a reasonable cost was very soon offered on request. The restaurant served us a very good dinner and excellent breakfasts. The bar was very popular with locals and had a lively atmosphere and the drinks were good value. The bar food was a bit inconsistent in quality but this may have been a consequence of the extensive work affecting the kitchen. The location is excellent and the complimentary shuttle service to the V&A waterfront was much appreciated. There are great seaviews and sunsets can be stunning when viewed from the bar terrace.
