This is my second time in JoBurg, and I thought I would try to stay at a new property in a new area. I should have known to stick to the motto "If it ain't broke, don'y fix it!" My colleague and I just checked out in haste. We discovered on our own that there was no water

Dear Dbj81, Thank you visiting us at The Winston Hotel. Our management team has sent you numerous emails to clarify this issue and address your concerns. Water shortages/outages are an unfortunate inconvenience faced by all business, hotels and homes in Johannesburg. This is something that is entirely out of our control. In most instances we are not notified by the council of an outage or the duration of the outage. This is not unique to The Winston Hotel - it affects all hotels in South Africa. As our guests comfort is of the highest priority to our staff and management, and contrary to your review, you were offered a complimentary late check out till a time where you could shower (certainly past noon). As you left before the water was switched back on, there was not much else that we could do or offer. This was offered to you free of charge, as compensation. We do apologise for the inconvenience, and understand that it is frustrating. Please understand that it is not something that we can control or change. Our team truly does their utmost to accommodate guests when such outages occur. Our management did their outmost to assist hotels.com and in no way dismissed the advisor. Our team explained that it was a water outage in the area, faced by all hotels and that a late check out would be offered free of charge. We hope that this response further clarifies your concerns. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Kind regards, The Winston Hotel Management Team

We had organised pick up by Winston and the driver was waiting patiently with a comfortable limo. Check in was smooth and friendly. The property is colonial style and the rooms are large with plenty of space for opening of luggage. Extremely comfy bed, good size fridge and safe.

The Winston Hotel is well located near the centre of Rosebank with comfortable tastefully decorated rooms around a courtyard with a pool which was too small for my liking (no laps in there) but ok for a plunge. There is a small restaurant and bar, and the food is excellent. The

We booked at The Winston because we wanted to treat our friend coming to Johannesburg for her big 50 birthday celebrations and it was sooooo FAB! It's in the most perfect spots in Johannesburg - literally one road from the Rosebank hub so also close to the Gautrain station, and

Very, very nice hotel…. beautiful open areas, parlors, outdoor sitting rooms, beautiful courtyard setting with a small pool. We were given room 7 which on one hand has an extremely limited view of the courtyard, but on the other hand is very quiet and secluded. Great

Dear TommyBars, On behalf of The Winston Hotel, I would like to thank you for your review and for staying with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at out hotel. We have taken note of your comment regarding the WiFi and it has since been improved. Our check in time is very standard and as we do run at a very high occupancy, we are generally unable to offer early check ins. Early check in fees generally do apply at most hotels. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Warm regards, The Winston Hotel Management Team

How far is Gabrielskloof? Does hotel offer transportation?
How far is Gabrielskloof? I'm unfamiliar with Gabrielskloof. As to hotel transport, yes, we had arranged airport pickup and train station dropoff. Both were on-time and economical.

I strongly recommend Level Four, which is located in the 54 on Bath hotel (a short ride from the Winston). I had one of the best meals of my life there, accompanied by a very fine Pinotage. The Fishmonger un the mall is also good. However, I would recommend that you have the hotel drive you -- although the walks are not long, they are not particularly comfortable after dark.

"Ask what views they have to offer, and if you want a room upstairs or downstairs."
"We had a second storey room this time which was great as we could overlook the pool and the spectacular gardens."
"All rooms are new."
"Views of the pool are pretty but I think the corner rooms over the carpark are larger"
