Loved my stay at the Winston. Very beautiful old school with a modern edge. So much beauty to delight in in terms of touches and warm charm. But for a 5 star hotel the front office staff need more polish. A little naive and a few glitches which if it weren't touting 5 stars could be forgiven. Charging R2k for...

After some research we found his wonderful hotel. This wonderful place that felt like home in the safest suburb of Johannesburg. Everything about it was perfect. On arrival we were greeted at the door, treated with coffee whilst we checked in , we were then taken to the room. The very large rooms with beautiful dressing gowns and slippers nestled...

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.

My stay here was superb. The room was spacious and luxurious. The service was refined and friendly. Breakfast was a treat.

We stayed at the Winston at the beginning of our African holiday and what a great beginning it was! A lovely room and surrounds, friendly staff and good food all combined to make us feel welcome. Special thanks to Unity who didn't just provide directions when we wanted to go to the nearby mall but instead walked there with us!
