The Winston Hotel is a real pleasure if you like a more personal touch to your business stay. No glitter or glamour, just a very friendly and cosy atmosphere with a very nice staff. Great rooms that are very clean and make you feel at home. With special thanks to Jason and the rest of the staff.. I will return...

This would have been a 5 star review..... I booked a last minute trip to Johannesburg, and a 7 night stay here. I read some of the reviews, good and bad to help make a decision to book. The hotel is beautiful . The rooms are large, well appointed, clean and aesthetically very pleasing. The neighbourhood is pleasant, and I...

Not a great location but hotel and grounds very good. Arrival service excellent, room very spacious and spotlessly clean. Restaurant and quality of food very good. Enjoyed our overnight stay, overall very good value!

A lovely boutique hotel in Rosebank. The garden is a delight (too cold to use the pool), the room elegant (ground floor, overlooking the garden) and the staff a delight. The restaurant is fine and the bar a comfortable place to rest. I walked to Rosebank Mall (about 10 minutes) and to the Gautrain (both during daylight) and didn't feel...

Don't stay here. The management must be so oppressive because the fear amongst the staff is palpable . We stayed for 4 nights and we're constantly pursued for final payment on day one. My colleagues were constantly remained of the rigid company rules. The good news is that the guys at the local service station are very friendly. Avoid the...

A lovely hotel in a quiet location (once the building work next door is finished!). The staff were excellent and the rooms we had (2 visits in one week) were both lovely. Room 11 had an early 'alarm call pigeon' directly above it which was a bit annoying at 5am but otherwise we had a wonderful time.

Reviewed 18 April 2017

The quality of the hotel was excellent. The problem I had was that I was put into a room that was directly parallel to a building site. There was no attempt to move me or no recognition it would disturb me. I would be woken by the noise and throughout the day continuous disturbance. Staff were excellent, always very friendly.

The Winston is a pretty boutique hotel, a seven minute walk to the Rosebank Mall, one street off the main road. The rooms are spacious, beautiful gardens around the pool in an open courtyard and great breakfast with nice people. There is a gorgeous outside patio for breakfast or drinks in the evening. The cons are there is a 10:30...
