Delicious food and thoughtful staff. The setting is gorgeous and very close to the Strand as well as several vineyards and shopping. The spa was lovely, two nice swimming pools...we were delighted with our stay. The staff were also very helpful with our young children.

We stayed at Winchester Mansions for our week long stay in Cape Town and thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn't get a sea view but considering the noise of crashing waves from the hotel's front I wouldn't say that was necessarily a bad thing! We had a 'mountain view' instead, still a very good room.
The front desk staff were great and always keen to help or advise (the free shuttle to the V&A Waterfront was really useful), the restaurant is of high standard and the hotel bar is a popular haunt for locals looking for a few drinks after work. The room decor could perhaps do with a little updating but was still good and, if anything we felt we were being 'over-serviced' ... a lot of staff tasked with cleaning rooms and serving in the restaraunt!
The best thing about the hotel is it's look and feel, by far the prettiest in Sea Point. The open courtyard and external corridors give it a really clasy feel inside as does the view when looking back towards it from the sea front.
The location is pretty good, taxis into the centre of town or down to Camps Bay are relatively cheap and, if need be, the front desk will arrange for the driver to take you if he's available (similar price). The free shuttle to the V&A Waterfront is great though, came in very useful.
All in all, a very pleasant place to stay ... but what is the golf putting equipment in the corridors about, really?

Wow! What an amazing place. It's a mini paradise. Wonderfully decorated. Every member of staff we came into contact with could not have been more helpful and friendly. Food was amazing.
Could not recommend this place more, it is a little hidden gem.

Superb and friendly staff, very welcoming. Best breakfast at any hotel I've stayed-- and the fresh-squeezed orange juice is a treat your rarely find in South Africa. Most comfortable rooms some with great views of Table Mountain. An excellent fitness center. Free shuttle to the local area. The Vineyard has been my favorite hotel since 1994 and while it keeps expanding (now a major conference hotel) it hasn't lost its original charm.

I had a magnificent suite with balcony (2nd floor only) looking over Table mountain, with kitchen, spare bedroom, living room. I think I was lucky as i was given this at the regular rate, and most do not have balconies, except 2F.
