Amazing quality of everything - rooms, food, overall. Felt homey and sophisticated at the same time. The gnocchi dish was incredible, the wine list was perfect. Loved the experience and highly recommend.

My stay at the Winston was a very brief one on my way to Cape Town from Johannesburg. The staff was professional and the large rooms very comfortable. Great breakfasts too! I would definitely consider a longer stay in the future.

My husband and I stayed here for the first leg of our honeymoon trip. Beautiful decor and friendly - very professional staff. We loved the food and relaxed peaceful atmosphere. It was a wonderful place to transition from hectic travel mode to honeymoon vacation. Great pool, great location, beautiful grounds. We'd love to come back.
