We spent 3 nights at this delightful hotel with its charming flower filled courtyard and large, comfortable rooms. The service was flawless from the airport pickup to the neatly folded and pressed laundry returned the same day. The restaurant was an unexpected bonus. We ate there all 3 nights- there was no reason to look elsewhere when we could dine...

We stayed at this hotel twice during our month-long visit to South Africa. The first time was because we were disappointed with the hotel we had originally booked. The second time was because we had enjoyed our first stay at the Winston so much. During both visits, we stayed in rooms with a safari-style motif. Very appropriate for our first...

We were staying at The Winston Hotel for two nights after a two-week travel throught the wonderful Zanzibar. We booked the airport transfer throught the hotel, which was very efficient, in a brand new Mercedes (1200 RAND round trip). The Winston is a very nice boutique hotel. Very well decorated. Located in Rosebank, near the Rosebank Mall. Reasonable and cold...

We enjoy smaller boutique hotels and this one was a winner. Our room was quite spacious. The bed and pillows were great. I had a deep bath tub which is a bonus for me! We were on the second floor with about 20 steps going up. A refrigerator was in our room. There was a wonderful view of the pool...

The Winston Hotel is situated one block from the Rosebank mall and offers secure off street parking. To us, it felt like a breath of fresh air after having stayed at many chain hotels in Joburg.

As we were getting ready to go out for dinner I got in the shower only to find that there was no hot water. We brought this under the attention of management who duly sent someone to double-check. After confirming, it was explained that there was a problem with the solar panel. Not a train smash, but maybe a back-up...
