Very good hotel and facilities but need shuttle or taxi for sightseeing. Nevertheless the free shuttle provided to the waterfront was very useful and the drivers very accommodating. We would go there again.
- Free Wifi
This is one of the older buildings in Cape Town, certainly as far as hotels go and it is really lovely. Comfortable rooms, sea views, attentive and friendly staff and only a short hop on the free shuttle bus to the V&A and city center.
The included breakfast was excellent with a choice of 'continental' or 'full English' as well as omelettes etc.
We did have one evening meal in the restaurant which was OK but there is so much choice to eat elsewhere, try those first.
Otherwise a really nice stay and it also has it's own swimming pool.
Every now and again you stay in one of those properties and, over breakfast, calculate how much it would cost to live there. Winchester Mansions is one of those places. A perfect location, staff that are not only a laugh a minute but consummately professional, and where care and kindness is shown by all. May I move in please?
PS Opposite Hop On Hop Off bus stop. Free shuttle to huge Mall. Uninterrupted views of Atlantic...am sad to be leaving.
We were so happy to once again spend time at the Winchester Mansions.The staff have been and still are warm, friendly and professional. We would highly recommend the hotel, the location is very well situated.
From the minute we arrived the service could not have been better. Early check-in and late check-out were both organised with the minimum of fuss by extremely friendly and helpful staff. The location was perfect - well away from the bustling and noisy Waterfront and yet convenient for sightseeing, with a City Sightseeing stop right outside. Ideal too for paragliding, with a landing spot on the beach in front of the hotel, and for easy access to local beaches. Great breakfasts.
Spend almost one week at Winchester Mansion, and it couldn’t have been any better. Beautiful place, and the staff was just fantastic. Our trip was booked through GET Africa, so we didn’t know anything about it before we arrived. Thanks to the very beautiful staff for such a nice stay.
