  • facilities & activities

    The generous outdoor heated pool is more than big enough for the amateur swimmer or splashing about with the kids. Budding professionals can swim at the Olympic-sized open air public pool, next to the promenade and just a ten minute walk from the hotel.

    Switch off at the fabulous Ginkgo Health and Wellness Spa which offers a full range of traditional, Asian and globally-inspired treatments. With a truly holistic approach and highly trained therapists, indulgence and pampering are assured.

    For outdoor enthusiasts, there are golf courses, a gym, horse riding, paragliding, kayaking or sailing nearby. The Winchester staff will gladly assist with any arrangements.

  • dining

    Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys at Winchester Mansions offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist. 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 a perfect setting for dinner under the stars, or perhaps you just feel like a sundowner on the terrace.

    The Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Renowned local and international jazz artists perform throughout the year. Enjoy a glass of fine sparkling wine on arrival, a complimentary Sunday newspaper and a cosmopolitan brunch buffet - what's not to like?

    If you have a chance, the monthly Grapes, Gourmet and Gallery evening is just the ticket for food, wine and art lovers.

  • family

    The hotel is loved by families for the wonderful welcome it gives to children of all ages. With welcome gifts, a babysitting service, children's menu (room service & restaurant) and towelling robes the hotel has really thought of everything.

    Children under 6 years stay free of charge with those over 6 paying a small supplement if sharing with their parents. The Classic rooms can accommodate a cot but not an extra bed, so families with toddlers and older children should opt for one of the suites which can be equipped with a sofa bed for up to 2 children under 12. For ultimate space and comfort, the colonial style Family Suites have two bedrooms and one bathroom, plus a separate lounge.
