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.

Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to let us know what your experience was like with us. The promenade will most definitely be beautiful once complete. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

This is our third time staying at the Winchester. Felt like being home. There was a slight problem with our room and the staff changed our room without any hesitation. There is such a buzz at this hotel which adds to the atmosphere. The location is excellent. Naturally we will go back.

Very good accommodation around a beautiful open courtyard . Service was very good - plenty of very helpful staff always available. Shuttle service into Cape Town was particularly good - only a 5 minute drive away.

Excellent staff, all very friendly and efficient. Great location in Sea Point - easy to walk to bars, restaurants, local shops, Promenade.Good parking on site. Harvey's is a great seafront bar to people watch.Didn't manage to use the shuttle service to go to the V&A Waterfront as it was either on an airport run or taking guests further afield, but taxis, Uber, My Citi buses are plentiful.

Room tip: A sea view is nice, but there is a lot of traffic noise.

Staff is friendly, breakfast (we had breakfast only) is a good buffet with additional fresh cooked "egg-dishes". The room was very big with view on Signal Hill.
On the beach promenade (directly located infront of the hotel) you can reach Cape Town Waterfront in a ~40min walk.
A HopOn/Off Bus Station is directly infront of the Hotel, Taxis and special Hotel Shuttle services can be arranged by the concierge.
Car parking is along the street, usually you will find a free parking lot in the closer area of the hotel +/- 100m.
With a rental car from the airport it is easy to reach in ~25minutes- using main roads only.

Room tip: In the Rooms directly below the roof you might hear the birds walking on the roof (the whole night).
