This was a great location, especially if you have a rental car. Staff were lovely and the breakfast was varied and good, kept us going until dinner. Actually missed the place when we moved on. Plus the paragliders land in a field right in front of the hotel, so you can watch then

I have been going to this hotel since many years and it is always a pleasure to be able to go back. It is a pitty that the promenade is a mess now but when it will be finished it will surely look very very pretty.

Is the pool available all year round or just the summer months please?
Good Day Our pool is open all year round. Currently it is out of service as we are busy renovating it, it will be up and running in the next few weeks.

It says there is a shuttle service....guessing to Capetown downtown and V&A Waterfront.....is this complimentary? How regularly does it run? Thanks Jenny
Hi Jenny Happy New Year There is indeed a complimentary shuttle to the V and A waterfront only. It does not go at specific times but can be booked when needed. There is a driver on duty from 7am until 11pm during summer season so works on a first come first serve basis. Note the Topless sightseeing bus and the My Citi transport system also stop opposite the hotel.

Winchester mansions are looking for a photocopy of my passport and credit card (front and back) via email, before I arrive, even though I made the hotel booking through an online website. Is this normal? I don't feel safe sending such personal information over email, hence the reason I made the booking through a reputable agent.
We had no such experience as you describe. I too would be reluctant to proceed on that basis.

"We had a top floor sea view room, windows quite small and probably not worth paying much extra for"
"Great room. Large and spacious."
"A sea view is nice, but there is a lot of traffic noise."
"In the Rooms directly below the roof you might hear the birds walking on the roof (the whole night)."
"We had a suite on the second floor (level 1) and had a good, unobscured view of the ocean and promenade across Beach Road."
