The Winchester Mansions is location on the Sea Point Promenade in Cape Town. This makes it super convenient for the business traveller as the city centre, and Cape Town International Convention Centre, are a short drive away (which is a huge benefit considering the traffic congestion during peak periods) as is the V&A Waterfront, the Cape Town Stadium and other popular beaches, restaurants and clubs.

We were here for the travel trade show WTM Africa, so time spent in our room was minimal. That said though, the room we stayed in was large and wonderfully comfortable… I loved the wooden floors and the spacious bathroom.

Breakfast, especially when a busy day lies ahead, is important and I was sad we didn’t have enough time to enjoy the buffet spread. Loved the continental breakfast selection and would have loved a glass of the complimentary bubbly 🙂

That evening we decided to enjoy more of the Winchester’s hospitality and chose to dine at Harvey’s… nothing better than sundowners on the terrace watching the sun slowly disappear into the Atlantic Ocean, followed by deep fried camembert, a perfectly seared rib-eye steak and a good coffee. If you time it right, you could even be there for their once-a-month 3G Evening, a celebration of grapes, gourmet and gallery (art) or their ever popular Jazz Brunch- so popular that booking is advised way in advance!

Personal best – the cappuccinos at Harvey’s
