Very poor breakfast
All the staff extremely helpful. Dinner at the restaurant excellent. Hotel shuttle very useful
Central to Cape town and surrounding, be it the west coast, or the peninsula.
Bathrooms need attention and the bed was really un comfortable.
They didn't have my booking from booking.com I was asked very rudely by the receptionist to email the booking and then had it demanded from me again on a number of times in spite of the fact that I could connect to the hotel wifi Very mingy thin duvet for a cape town winter and the only other bed covering was a slightly grubby bedspread on the floor had a long day packing up my house and was my last day in Cape town for a while was looking forward to a little luxury and was bitterly disappointed Very noisy fridge considering there was nothing in it! No comparison at all to the excellent and friendly service I get from Southern Sun when I travel on business
Room was wonderful, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast awesome.
Public Areas like entrance toilets etc restaurants etc is fabulous. Seaviews. Huge Apartments. Good Bathroom.
Public Areas like entrance toilets etc restaurants etc is fabulous but the room decor which tried to be Historical / Victorian was dark and boring even though the furniture quality is good. The decorator who did the entrance and Restaurant / Bar should also have done the rooms. Room Decor is high quality but not not nice.
The family room was excellent. The room was beautifully and tastefully decorated. We had filtered water to drink and we received Lindors every evening as a delightful treat. The bathroom had gowns for each person. The breakfast was great for vegetarian. Each floor has a putt-putt course which is very innovative. It was great to have a TV in both the main bedroom and the lounge.
The reception staff members weren't extremely friendly compared to many other hotels we've stayed at. The TV reception was poor in both rooms. There was no gym. Exiting and entering the parking area was inconvenient especially when it once took over 10 minutes for someone to open the gate. The room service menu wasn't updated.
Lovely room very nice bar beautiful location great staff
room tended to be cool at night
Great location. Across the road from the beach and bus stop.
- No internet access in the rooms. Only internet access is in the business lounge; which is very poor in signal. Very poor mobile network in the rooms, which means no internet through mobile data. - Entry cards were messed up and don't always work. You have to keep going to the lobby to issue a new one, which again sometimes doesn't work. - During the night the doors are closed and it takes a long time for someone to open up the door to get in. It would've been great if a guest can use the access card to open the hotel door as well. - Breakfast variety is poor. - Most staff aren't welcoming and don't smile, specially the manager.
No stocked mini-bar, could not accept a restaurant walkin.
Knowledgeable & helpful staff at reception. Generally I found all staff helpful & obliging. Sunday brunch a highlight in terms of ambience, variety & quality of food, music & relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyed walks along Sea Point promenade & location of Winchester to many restaurants.
Some strange arrangement regarding getting a slice of toast at breakfast.
Breakfast and the room was great
They fetched the towels when we were at breakfast and left nothing. Aircon was not consistent
Our driver was most friendly and helpful.
No internet access in the room.
Staff recognized me from previous stays. Waiters are well trained and accommodating, fulfilling special requests with ease. Great spa experience and a lovely, clean, well appointed room
I requested a stocked minibar which was not done, but this is not the worst thing ever;-)
Payment for parking. I Was given a ground floor room with no privacy and had to pay 25% more for a room on 3rd floor.
location,friendly waiters who tried hard
Poor food,I ordered Sandwidges in the bar which were cold,Rooms need an upgrade
Only has free wi-fi in the public areas - we had to pay R60 to connect in the room. This is completely antiquated. Also had to pay R75 per car per night to park - in South Africa?? The amount of money is nominal but these are irritation costs that one doesn't expect in a four star hotel. Definitely better four stars in Cape Town, wouldn't stay here again.
Paying for parking when the online reservation said it would be free?
Such a wonderful experience as always. 21 years since my first visit and the staff, food and hotel gets better every trip.
having to go back home
Beauty of the building and history of the hotel. The breakfast was very good
The spacious room and it's comfort
Preauthorisation for extras just in case - I felt it's not really necessary.
I like the comfort and services at Winchester mansion and also their meals is very good their cooks are perfect I really enjoyed my stay.
Great location on the seafront Cool courtyard reminiscent of the American Colony in Jerusalem
The staff were obviously trained at Fawlty Towers...
The lovely courtyard for breakfast and the fantastic jazz brunch on Sunday. Great location within easy reach of Camps Bay and the V and A Waterfront.
The staff were really helpful and pleasant.The availability of the mini bus into Capetown was great and the best part was the beautiful suite which we had and the lovely garden setting for breakfast.
