Rooms at Winchester Mansions

Our rooms are spacious and elegant and all of them have either sea or mountain views - just to ensure that you never forget where you are.

Harvey's at Winchester Mansions


A "sundowner" is a drink taken at sundown, preferably whilst watching the sun slowly disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. There are only a few places in Cape Town where one can do that in style and the terrace of Harveys restaurant at the Winchester Mansions hotel is one of them. Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys offers guests South African cuisine with a European twist.

No secret to the locals, the Winchester Mansions' Sunday Jazz Brunch is an absolute must. Throughout the year, renowned local and international jazz artists perform at the brunch, in summer in the Mediterranean setting of the courtyard. Enjoy a glass of fine sparkling wine on arrival, a complimentary Sunday newspaper and a cosmopolitan brunch buffet. We dare to say it is one of the best brunches to experience in Cape Town and are glad to get back up from Don Albert, a well-known jazz journalist who declared us the "numero uno" spot in his weekly blogg on www.artslink.co.za

Also, if you have a chance, join us for the monthly Grapes, Gourmet and Gallery evening where Harveys welcomes food, wine and art lovers. We have joined forces with local and international artists and some of the best wine estates in the Cape for you to enjoy a great evening.
