Another Cape Town hotel that’s moving towards being sustainable is the Cape Dutch styled WINCHESTER MANSIONS. This iconic sea front hotel is not a new build, so the challenges of embracing the new technologies of sustainability were always going to be a challenge.

In addition to this the hotel has a number of environmental and community initiatives that it is committed to.
