About Winchester Mansions Hotel
The Winchester Mansions, situated along the Sea Point Promenade and facing the Atlantic Ocean, has earned its reputation as Cape Town’s iconic and leading sea front hotel among local and international guests. The original Cape Dutch architecture combined with personalised hospitality and professional service form the hotel’s unique signature of classic elegance.
Business and leisure travellers enjoy the Winchester Mansions’ relaxing atmosphere, set against the backdrop of the mountain and overlooking the swell of the Atlantic. Staying at the Winchester Mansions is more than just accommodation; it is part of the journey.

A “sundowner” is a drink taken at sundown, preferably whilst watching the sun slowly disappearing in the Atlantic Ocean. There are only a few places in Cape Town where one can do that in style and the terrace of Harveys at Winchester Mansions is one of them. Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist.
No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions’ Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Throughout the year, renowned local and international jazz artists perform at the brunch, in summer in the Mediterranean setting of the courtyard. Enjoy a glass of fine sparkling wine on arrival, a complimentary Sunday newspaper and a cosmopolitan brunch buffet. Also, if you have a chance, join us for the monthly Grapes Gourmet and Gallery evening where Harveys welcomes food, wine and art lovers.
