Great location!Posted Sep 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was my second stay at this hotel. I love its charm and location. It has everything what I and family needs that includes transportation service, lovely gift shop, afternoon tea, relaxing spa, healthy breakfast with fresh bread, and much more. I will be back to it soon.

Terrific stayPosted Sep 5, 2013
Pros: It's look, the front desk staff, the bar/restaurant, the location
Cons: The room decor, but that's being fussy. The en suite was contemporary but could have done with a better door!
Location: V&A has lots of good places to eat and a load of shops, Camps Bay is just down the coast too for a few drinks and a beach for everyone!
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?
