I booked Winston's late and in a rush, it was almost an impulse booking - as an alternative to one of the 5 star chain hotels. I'm very happy that I did, the accommodatoin was superb in every respect. It's a short walk from Rosebank Mall which didn't mean a lot to me, other than being a nice area and...

This hotel is wonderful. A few of us stayed here on business and we received nothing but fabulous service and kindness. The rooms impress with their generous size and airiness. Sparkling clean and large bathrooms add to the overall positive feel one gets when staying here. The hotel is well located and offers a transfer service to wherever one wants...

I stayed at the Winston for a few days in February, in Johannesburg to celebrate a family occasion. The hotel surpassed my expectations in every way. No detail ignored and consistently exceptional service. The room was spacious and spotless, and the staff could not do enough to make our stay more comfortable. I can't wait to stay here again!

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights after arriving in Joburg from the US. It was a perfect place to get over our jet lag, and enjoy the beautiful grounds, room, and restaurant. The staff all were amazing, and truly the highlight of our stay. A special thanks to Nosy (sp?), Timothy and Mike. You all brightened up each...

More of a local hotel but a very good one. First hotel I've stayed in where there is no bacon available for breakfast - I've stayed in a few! Spacious room with nice view over the quad and swimming pool.

We have held our annual organisational meetings at the Winston Hotel for many years. Last year (Jan 2016) was disappointing and this year (Jan 2017) was even worse. We used the meeting room beside the dining hall for three days. The tea time snacks were delicious however our pre-ordered lunch on all 3 days was dismal. The steaks were overcooked...
