Winchester Mansions Hotel

Top choice hotel in Sea Point to Hout Bay
Image by

Offering a waterfront location (you’ll pay extra for sea-view rooms), this elegant Sea Point institution dates to the 1920s, but adds contemporary appeal to its historic home with a spa and 50-sq-metre pool. There's a lovely courtyard with a central fountain – a romantic place to dine. Harvey’s bar is a popular spot for a sundowner, and its legendary jazz brunch.
