Fabulous location, super friendly and efficient staff, perfect comfortable base for exploring Cape Town and the winelands. Vibrant bar overlooking the sea sward and ocean. Delightful courtyard restaurant and brilliant Sunday jazz brunches. Looking forward to next year already!

Enjoyed another great lunch at winchester, in the (oh so) beautiful court yard. Sandiso is a great waiter. Gave me 5star service. The food was good as always, and came promptly. Love spending late afternoons here. The vibe is great!

“Personal preference for room selection, mountain or sea view rooms, I prefer high up seaview, loft with a window.”

“Sea views are wonderful and great for sunset but room can be very noisy with wind etc. Don't bother upgrading to a suite- it's not a true suite so save your money!”
