"The Winchester is not a property that we know well. However, it offers easy access to many of Cape Town’s highlights, and would make a comfortable base from which to explore the city."


The Winchester Hotel has a fabulous location and is very well set up for you to make the most of your stay in the Mother City.


It is positioned on Sea Point’s promenade, just 10 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and the vibrant city center. The beautiful beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay are also only 10 minutes away! The hotel is accessed by 20-minute road transfer from Cape Town International Airport.


Located along a sweeping palm-lined coastal road, it is an iconic 1920s Cape Dutch-style building, with whitewashed walls and prominent rounded gables. The interiors are just as impressive, featuring lavish lounges and elegant dining rooms. Leather wing chairs, plush patterned sofas, glass-topped coffee tables, bouquets of flowers, even a grandfather clock… this really is luxury living, the ultimate in comfort and class! The hotel’s eateries include Harveys, a restaurant, bar, and delicatessen with a gorgeous courtyard – here, guests are treated to traditional South African cuisine with a European twist. The ambiance is great and the furnishings feature comfy couches, stylish barstools, and elegant tables and chairs. Come evening, guests can enjoy a drink while watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. And every Sunday sees the exhilarating Jazz Brunch – a variety of artists perform while you sit back and tuck into a cosmopolitan brunch buffet! With the monthly Grapes, Gourmet, and Gallery evening too, known as 3G, Winchester Hotel provides a lot of entertainment overall. The hotel also has first-rate conference facilities, catering for up to 100 delegates in four distinct venues. Just get in touch with us for all the details! Finally, there is the Ginkgo Health and Wellness Spa and the sparkling 47.5 square meter swimming pool.

Guest accommodation at Winchester Hotel consists of 51 rooms and 25 suites. All are exceptionally well appointed, with lovely ocean, mountain, or courtyard views. Features include telephone, satellite television with international channels, complimentary Wi-Fi, electronic safe, mini-bar, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and air conditioning. The furnishings are as impressive as the communal areas – large double beds laid with crisp linens and fluffy duvets, subtle bedside lighting, classic wood-framed cushioned chairs, sophisticated artwork, lots of storage space for your belongings. The en-suites are simply stunning, with flush toilet, washbasin vanity, walk-in shower, and, with some options, a separate bathtub too!

** For families with children under the age of 6 years, we always request a ground floor room or a room without a balcony for safety reasons. If you stay here with us, please ensure this is what you are given.**


The hotel is a brilliant base for getting out and exploring Cape Town.

  • There are loads of attractions around the V&A Waterfront – for example, the Two Oceans Aquarium, the Telkom Exploratorium, the SA Maritime Museum, and the excellent selection of art galleries, curio shops, and specialty stores. A free shuttle service takes guests to and from this bustling part of the city.
  • Sports fans will be delighted to learn that Winchester Hotel is close to facilities for sailing, parasailing, horse riding, and golf. Guests can also enjoy city sightseeing, a city day tour, a township tour, and excursions to the scenic Cape Peninsula, Cape of Good Hope, Robben Island, and Winelands. Whale tours are available as well.
  • You can climb or take the cable car up to the top of Table Mountain or relax in the fragrant Kirstenbosch Gardens. There is so much to do in and around the Mother City, we guarantee you will have a terrific time!
  • Whilst staying here, don't forget to visit the spa! Gingko is ideal for a spot of pampering, offering a wonderful range of massages, skincare treatments, mani–pedis, and revitalizing facials. Bliss!
