Stayed here for 10 nights in November 2016. Excellent location on Seapoint with Spa onsite. Staff were exceptionally helpful especially Shaheed and Gloria. Pool area is small but very good with complimentary fresh water and fruit available at poolside. Great hotel and will visit again

The Winchester Mansions was a delightful place to stay on my last trip to Cape Town. Close enough to everything, yet once you are in the courtyard, far away from everything. Rooms were large, with very comfortable beds and showers. It was quiet and yet friendly. Staff were unobtrusive. Breakfasts Great.

The views are simply to die for, location location location. The whole stay is designed around making the guest feel so so special. We booked the Robben Island suite which was a wonderful luxurious place to relax/sleep after either using the hotel facilities or experiencing the joys of Cape Town during the day. We experienced all the offerings we could...

Brilliant stay. The layout of the hotel and the room is beautiful. The staff are very warm and friendly and very helpful. A wonderful place to stay with great access to the city with taxi service provided by the hotel to the Waterfront. City tour bus stops right outside the hotel

We were a party of four in two rooms - 304 and 324. Both these rooms were at the side and front of the hotel and had a veranda.
