We are frequent visitors at the hotel and this time it was not great. We ordered lunch and waited for an hour and a half. When the food finally arrived it was disappointing. Over priced and not appetizing. It is a pity as the location is great. No problem with 5 star prices but then I expect 5 star service and amenities

Booking process was difficult and frustrating. Quote was incorrect (quoted prices had changed). Hotel could not process payment on a South African credit card. Booked in for 5 nights. No hot water in the room on the first 2 mornings. Had to change rooms to get hot water. Welcome dinner promised on night of arrival never happened. When questioned about it, was met with indifference by the staff. Airport transfer agreed advertised and quoted at R180 suddenly ramped up to R250 without any warning. Again, when queried, met with indifference by staff. General lack of professionalism.

Response from General Manager, Owner at The Winston Hotel
Responded 29 Mar 2021
Dear James Brent and Helena Pinto, Our management team has contacted you directly, as after your departure, certain items were found to be missing and needed to be charged for or returned. After our communication with you, kindly requesting the return or payment of missing items, the above review was written by yourselves. In response to the claims above, and having provided proof to you on all accounts mentioned, we of course accept South African credit cards, as a South African establishment. At no point where you offered a welcome dinner, as this is not something that we offer. Furthermore, nowhere where you quoted R180 or R250 for an airport transfer, as neither are feasible prices. This review is intended to harm our reputation and is completely fabricated and based on lies.
