ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES AT THE WINCHESTER HOTEL:
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 ambience 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 Mansions 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!
