We stayed at Winchester Mansions for three nights. Our overall experience was way below our expectations. The room was clean and spacious, but the window was too small to enjoy the 'sea view' - no value for the premium charged for the sea view rooms. In fact the road outside was quite noisy during the night. Secondly, the internet was very slow and extra charge for in-room internet makes no sense given the accommodation is already quite expensive. Lastly, the staff at the reception was very young and seemed rather under trained - no concept of follow up in case they are unable to deliver on a promised service. For example, we had to stand an extra hour in the queue for Table Mountain tickets just because the staff forgot to make online booking and didn't bother to inform us till we asked.To summarize, poor value for money for the price we paid for the sea view junior suite!! I would certainly explore other options for our next trip to Cape Town.
