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.


In a world class destination such as Cape Town with so much to see and do, it is rather unlikely that you will be spending lots of time in your room. Nevertheless we make sure that even if you do decide to stay in, you are able to unwind in style and comfort.

Our rooms are spacious and elegant and all of them have either sea or mountain views - just to ensure that you never forget where you are. Children of all ages are welcome at the Winchester Mansions. A large variety of amenities and services are available to ensure a delightful stay for little guests.

• All rooms with satellite TV with international channels, telephone and wireless internet access

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.

A large outdoor pool awaits you for a few laps of swimming or if you are feeling lazy: lean back in the deck chairs with your book and favourite cocktail. Our Ginkgo Spa invites you to relax and recapture the forgotten sense of wellbeing.
