overview

Explore Cape Town from the perfectly-located Winchester Mansions Hotel. Situated in Sea Point and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the hotel has easy access to several major attractions as well as the city centre. The popular city beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are a short drive away, as is the ever-popular V&A Waterfront but the hotel is also right on the sea-facing promenade, a favourite spot for lazy evening walks or a scenic early morning run.

The activities available in and around Cape Town are both diverse and plentiful: from walking the city streets to surfing, mountain hiking to fine dining and wine tasting, there's something for everyone. This family-friendly hotel prides itself in putting the comfort and happiness of its guests first so just ask the staff for their suggestions for things to do and help with bookings and reservations.

Traveller Reviews

  • The hotel that you had booked for us was also very good - it totally surpassed our expectations for sure. My kids were very happy that it had superior Wifi and the breakfast buffet was also very nice. We also got lucky, because both of the days that we were there, the weather was really nice, and we got an awesome view from the top of Table Mountain and though the water was cold, we still got a chance to go to the beach. Like you said, the V&A Waterfront was only a few minutes from the hotel, so we were able to dine there for most of the meals, and it was simply beautiful. The hotel itself was right in front of the water, so we were able to enjoy an evening just sitting in the grass in front of the hotel and enjoying the sunset on the water. The highlights in Cape Town were definitely the awesome hotel, the paragliding, and Table Mountain.

  • Winchester Mansions was exceptional!!! The staff was all so helpful and accommodating. The bar and restaurant were great. The service was impeccable. We have never seen such a well taken care of hotel and we were so well taken care of!

  • Cape Town, the jewel in the Crown – the choice of Winchester Mansions was perfect for us. Unfortunately 5 nights was nowhere enough as we enjoyed Capetown for the V & A Waterfront, Table Mountain, Wineries and spectacular scenery. We enjoyed it so much we are considering returning for a longer holiday in a couple of years’ time.

  • Winchester Mansions was perfect in every way. The service, the location, the food, the rooms. Just pure delight, which certainly increased the pleasure of being in already such a wonderfully unique city like Cape Town.

  • Winchester Mansions was such a nice place to stay! We enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine and snacks. It was definitely a more luxury place than we are use to staying in. The staff was very helpful. We would have liked to have one more day in Cape Town to visit the wineries.
