I stayed at the Winchester Mansions Hotel, Sea Point for 2 nights midweek as I was facilitating a presentation skills programme in the hotel. On arrival I was greeted warmly by reception and helped quickly. I was also shown to the conference room which I'd be using the following day, even though it was after office ours. I'd left my...

we stayed here for ten nights, the hotel and city are both excellent, the staff are very friendly and the hotel was very clean. It has excellent views of the ocean and is a nice walk down to the waterfront. Would definatly stay here again.

Certainly a firm favourite of mine though one does miss the touch of Nils Heckscher! Location can't be better - only a street, albeit a busy one, between you and the ocean. Food is great especially if it is served in the lovely peaceful court yard. Breakfast is also to my liking - lots of fruit! Rooms are well appointed,...

I cannot say enough about this gorgeous hotel. Beautiful old style charm with all the luxuries any modern business or holiday traveler could ever need. Dining facilities ooze opulence whilst being comfortable and inviting. Harvey's caters for luxury dining by night, is a trendy and stylish bistro by day, and also has a separate cocktail bar and casual lounge open...

Was a quick one day trip to Cape Town for a half day conference at the hotel. Customers really liked the venue and conferencing was different to your usual conference rooms as the Constance room had doors leading out on to the pool deck area. Rabia dealt with my booking efficiently and Lennox was always around to assist. From the...

On this trip to Africa I enjoyed my second and third stays at Winchester Mansions. It will always have a special place in my heart -as a child we lived in Norfolk House right next door -so in many ways it is a homecoming for me. The rooms are lovely and (bliss) they have a bath not just a shower!...

“Rooms towards ocean! And the higher the better - as those rooms are more quiet”
 of 5 bubbles Energyseeker, 14 Jan 2017 | Read review
“The rooms that we occupied (Junior Suites Sea Facing - 1st. floor) are somewhat dated, though very clean and offer all comfort that one may require for a luxury stay. Perfect beds and well shaped pillows for a good night sleep; a bathroom with bath and seperate shower complete "your little home" for your holiday.”
