Winchester Mansions Hero

Winchester Mansions

Cape colonial classic at the foot of Signall Hill

The perfect retreat for exploring Cape Town and enjoying scenic ocean views

Boasting an idyllic location at the foot of Signal Hill and overlooking the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Winchester Mansions is a true Cape Town icon and a superb place to base oneself when looking to explore the Mother City.

With just 76 rooms there is a very personable feel to the hotel and visitors return year after year to enjoy the outstanding hospitality for which it is renowned. There is a very classical feel to the rooms and they are beautifully furnished and equipped with all of the amenities you could wish for. It is definitely worth upgrading to the sea view rooms and the lovely panorama of the Atlantic that they offer. The sparkling swimming pool is a very popular spot for guests to relax and soak up the Cape Town sunshine, with staff always on hand to serve drinks and snacks. Indeed, food and drink are a real feature of the hotel and it is renowned as one of the best spots to eat in Cape Town. The Sunday jazz brunches at the hotel are a Cape Town institution and well worth enjoying whether you are staying at the hotel or not. Whether you are travelling as a couple, a family or a group of friends, Winchester Mansions really does tick all of the boxes for a great stay and is somewhere that we will always heartily recommend.

The location of the hotel means it is easy to access all of the attractions of Cape Town by car and during the day you can also access the promenade which is home to some interesting sculptures and art installations from local artists.
