Winchester Boutique Hotel

Amanda Lopez

"It was very good, good service, great location, and good food."

Dilshad Devani

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!"

Linda Gilbertson

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."

Amy Vangstad

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 i n Cape Town to visit the wineries.

Patricia Irvine

"The Winchester Mansions upgraded me to a suite which was sea facing and lovely. The staff at all the hotels were so wonderful. They make you feel like you are so welcome. The food was tremendous."

Vanessa Godinho

"Winchester Mansions in fact has excellent service. The staff are warm and have a lovely family environment which the kids certainly enjoyed as well."

Diana Cunha

"Cape Town is fantastic and the Windchester Mansions is such a great hotel! The room (well... it looked more like an apartment) we got was more then perfect and the hotel staff was very nice too."

Sarah Wiley

I would recommend the Winchester Mansions to anyone. The room was enormous, which was great for Amelie and they couldn't have been more helpful with the baby. They also arranged a babysitter for us one night, which worked out fine and they did accomm odate the early check in which was great after the flight with the little one.

"Winchester Mansions was very convenient. We had a huge room and excellent food. I left my sunglasses there but they found them and posted them back to me in the UK."

Anette Larsen Bogno

The Winchester Hotel was great and had wonderful staff with great service! The jazz brunch is a must, even with children. The taxi-service they offer, makes the money worthwhile and the fact of having the green area in front with play an area for th e kids was great. Very important to us was coming from Angola and needed to move around freely which we did. Clients stayed in the Winchester suite to accommodate a baby and toddler.

Matti Karhu

We were given a bedroom which was part of a larger suite. When we arrived, the door to the suite was open. I had asked the staff to lock it, which they did a couple of hours later. During our last night at the hotel I woke up in the middle of the nig ht to somebody coming through the door. The door had been unlocked again at some point without our knowledge. The night manager did not find the key so they could not lock the door but they sent a security guard to secure our comfort and safety for the rest of the night. In the morning the hotel promised to compensate the discomfort by refunding the cost of the last night.

John Carpendale

It was good. The housekeeping and the service at the bar were not the best - but the rest of the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. Both camps, although quite different experiences, were just superb in terms of location, game viewing, luxury , and service. We really appreciated that you notified all the places of my birthday. Winchester Mansions had champagne for us. Nice touches.
