A classic heritage hotel on the Sea Point Promenade overlooking the Atlantic Ocean

The Winchester is a beautiful 1920s Cape Dutch property, and a third-generation family-owned hotel. Directly located on the Sea Point Promenade – a prominent area near to the V&A Waterfront and Cape Town's city centre – the hotel is well-positioned for exploring the city and visiting the nearby winelands, peninsulas and beautiful Clifton and Camps Bay beaches.

At Harveys Restaurant, guests can enjoy a delightful fusion of South African and European inspired dishes within a stunning outdoor setting, an elegant courtyard resplendent in character and period charm. The hotel bar is an alternative setting for lighter meals and refreshing afternoon cocktails. Harveys Bar Terrace has a more casual ambience, and is positioned in front of the promenade overlooking the coastline. A real highlight is the popular Sunday Jazz Brunch, hosted throughout the year with live jazz from local and international artists (booking in advance is highly recommended). Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and enjoy one of Cape Town's best brunches – with a pretty courtyard setting in the summer.

Rooms consist of classic, contemporary, and larger suite styles. All rooms feature outstanding ocean or mountain views, and are generously furnished with a luxurious en suite and spacious open-plan layout. We particularly love the classic rooms, which have been decorated to reflect the historical signature of the hotel.
