- Winchester MansionsJul 05, 2012
Flanked by palm trees and situated right on the Atlantic seaboard, the Winchester Mansions is housed in a historical Cape Dutch building with arched windows and white plastered walls. Although the foyer is a bit dark and cold, and maybe a bit boring, the rest of the hotel makes up for it big time. One of the best features of Winchester Mansions is the beautiful courtyard, which forms the hotels heart. The Bougainville creeping against the walls, the chirping birds and the fountain make you forget that you are in the middle of a buzzing city. It is a little oasis that is perfectly sheltered from the wind, which can be quite manic on bad days. Don’t skip the hotel's Sunda Jazz brunch, which is either hosted in the courtyard or at Harvey’s restaurant (weather dependent). The lunch includes great music, great food, a complimentary newspaper and a free glass of bubbly.Recommended for:History Buffs

Beautiful ocean views, a classical interior, friendly staff and old world charm make this one of my favourite hotels on the Sea Point Promenade. The recently renovated rooms are light and elegant, with amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. You’ll find “traditional” old-school styled rooms on the first and second floors, with more contemporary attic/loft-style rooms, popular with corporate clients, on the third floor. Harveys Bar serves up cocktails, tapas and light meals either in its plush interior or outside on the terrace. Sunday morning features jazz brunches from 11 – 2pm, with local and international artists performing while guests enjoy a full buffet breakfast or a la carte menu. In addition to the terrace with sea views, there’s a really pretty inner courtyard, lined with greenery and bougainvillea, where events take place (weather permitting). For relaxation, there’s the gingko spa and a pool area. There are 15 off-street parking bays. For a real treat book into the Presidential suite - room 225!
