I have stayed at this wonderful hotel several times over the years. I always feel like I have come home. Staying there this week after a four year gap, it is still as fabulous as ever. Rooms are to a very high standard and the staff are exceptional!

Location is very central and in a safe area. The hotel is beautifully decorated and well maintained. The rooms are large and comfortable. The best part is the staff and service at this rather small but intimate hotel. Breakfast was amazing and served by staff who went out of their way to make you happy. Nothing was difficult or a...

I have now stayed at The Winston Hotel on each of my four trips to Johannesburg. And each time I have come away saying, Wow, what an incredible hotel. But, actually, The Winston is more than a hotel: it is a home away from home. The rooms are lovely and the common space, including a truly out of this world...

I booked Winston's late and in a rush, it was almost an impulse booking - as an alternative to one of the 5 star chain hotels. I'm very happy that I did, the accommodatoin was superb in every respect. It's a short walk from Rosebank Mall which didn't mean a lot to me, other than being a nice area and...

I stayed at the Winston for a few days in February, in Johannesburg to celebrate a family occasion. The hotel surpassed my expectations in every way. No detail ignored and consistently exceptional service. The room was spacious and spotless, and the staff could not do enough to make our stay more comfortable. I can't wait to stay here again!
