Lovely view from the outdoor bar area across the bay, where you can watch the paragliders on a Saturday come down, or all the people doing their daily walk along the waterfront with the magnificent sunsets in the background. Our room was lovely and clean, nice and big with a partial view of the ocean. The staff were extra friendly...

The staff were outstanding, Grace in Harveys was beautiful and the smiles just kept coming! Sitting on the balcony with a coffee or drink looking out at Robben Island was the highlight of our stay. The rooms were great, very comfortable.

We have been going to Winchester Manions for many years. It is a wonderful location. The staff and service are both great. We had dinner there last week at Harvey's and the food was terrible. Two out of the five of our family mentioned that our food was not at all good. The Manager graciously said that they would replace...

We arrived at Winchester Mansions from Stellenbosch where I had sustained a really badly sprained ankle. The staff were wonderful, from lending me a walking stick to phoning the airline to arrange special assistance at airports. On our last morning the shuttle bus driver took us to a cafe along the esplanade with a lovely view and picked us up...

The location is very good. The sea is close by and walks on the promenade are recommended. That area is utilized by the locals for all types of exercise. My room did not overlook the sea but was very comfortable and spacious . The hotel has a shuttle service to the Waterfront. The hop on hop off bus stops in...

I love staying at the Winchester Mansions. The sea and mountain views are great. The food is outstanding, great chefs and it's so relaxing sitting on the terrace having breakfast, lunch or dinner. The staff are so accomodating and make you feel special. Complimentary wine and chocolate in the room adds to the experience. I also love the complimentary slippers....

Winchester Mansion is in an ideal location only about 2.5 mile walk to the V&A Waterfront or the van will take you anywhere relatively close if you schedule with them ahead of time, which is key as it did cause some confusion in our stay with them. Once we understood the van policy it was very smooth. The bar is...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am glad the confusion with our transfers was clarified and you made use of the service we offer.

We stayed at the hotel for three nights. We have visited it previously but never as a guest and have always liked the atmosphere. We were allocated a very spacious room with a large bathroom that was situated around the main Courtyard dining area. Breakfast was good and you could either eat inside or in the Courtyard, which is a...

We enjoyed our stay in a well furnished Junior Suite. The hotel is beautiful with old charm. The hotel is fantastically located, if you like to walk a bit. We walked to Camps bay and the Waterfront.
