The Winchester Menu

Timeless elegance. Contemporary charm


Situated along the scenic Sea Point Promenade and facing the Atlantic Ocean, with the majestic backdrop of Table Mountain, The Winchester Boutique Hotel in Cape Town is an iconic seafront hotel that has a rich heritage, and its iconic Cape Dutch architecture tells a story of luxury and sophistication of a romantic bygone era making it popular among local and international guests.

The Winchester is currently closed for renovations, “The renovation sees the hotel being reinvented with a more contemporary look and feel, while still paying respect to the proud history of the building,” explains Neil Markovitz, CEO of Newmark Hotels, Reserves, Lodges and Residences. During this refurbishment, the historic details and features of the interior architecture at The Winchester are being maintained, and in some places even reinstated, whilst bringing in furnishings, colour palettes and styling that add a modern appeal. A crisp classic black and white colour scheme features throughout the hotel’s main areas – seen in beautiful, white panelled walls and detailed ceilings, offset by striking geometric floor tiles, all accented by quirky décor elements and antiques that portray the building’s rich history and personality. The black and white theme also features in the new, beautifully appointed, bathrooms.

The Winchester is set to open in November 2021, for reservations and enquiries please contact or call +27 21 427 5900

About Cape Town Central

Cape Town, otherwise known as “The Mother City”, is a cherished destination among locals and internationals alike. It has, in recent years, been named the best place in the world to visit by leading international media – and the reasons for this are unmistakable. The central region of this city comprises a number of sought-after attractions and suburbs: The V&A Waterfront region and harbour remain abuzz all year round, the CBD boasts world-class establishments and attractions that appeal to both business and leisure travellers, and the Atlantic Seaboard – just minutes from the CBD – offers a laid-back seaside setting.

The region’s Mediterranean climate makes for pleasant summers, although winds can pick up. Notwithstanding Cape Town’s unpredictable weather, which has earned it the reputation of having four seasons in one day, the city experiences an average of over 3 000 hours of sunshine a year. Winters are typically rainy, but the city takes on a cosy, European atmosphere which is easily appreciated alongside a fireplace.
