Accommodation rating: Superior
Situated on Cape Town's platinum mile and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Winchester Mansions is an exclusive Cape Dutch style hotel. Built in the mid 1920's, recalling a genteel age, when courtesy and personal attention was paramount, the hotel has earned a well-deserved reputation for outstanding personal service.
Seventy-six colonial and modern rooms and suites offer the kind of comfort and luxury you'd expect from an international hotel and most have spectacular mountain or sea views. With many different accommodation options available, the Winchester is perfect whether you're a family or a couple travelling to Cape Town. Dine al fresco in the colonnaded courtyard where a buffet, accompanied by live jazz, is served for Sunday lunch. The terrace of Harvey's bar overlooks the ocean and is a good place to relax with cocktails.
