Built in the mid 1920's, in Herbert Baker style, The Winchester Mansions - Cape Town's leading Beachfront Boutique Hotel embodies the charm and gracious hospitality of a bygone era. Recalling a more genteel age, when courtesy and personal attention was paramount, 'The Mansions' has earned a reputation for delighting its guests with true hospitality.
The 51 luxurious rooms and 25 lavishly furnished suites, styled by one of Cape Town's top designers include the "Top of the Mansions" contemporary, loft style rooms as well as two newly refurbished floors that enjoy a more traditional & colonial feel. Each room offers Satellite TV with international channels, telephone, electronic safe, mini bar, tea & coffee-making facilities, separate walk in showers in all bathrooms and air conditioning.
The Winchester's beautiful colonnaded Courtyard, built in the style of an Italian piazza, is a tranquil oasis from the pace of city life. Encircled by palm trees and water fountains, it makes the perfect setting for a romantic dinner under the stars. Every Sunday is Jazz day at the Mansions; we host a wonderful Jazz Brunch with a delicious buffet that contains everything from eggs to chocolate cake! You also receive a glass of sparkling wine and a Sunday newspaper on arrival. The fun starts at 11am and the live Jazz music continues until 2pm.
