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!

The spacious rooms and an outstanding service make this place my choice for any Jo'burg to come. Also the Restaurant is nice and Service is excellent. The reasonably priced Limousine Service completes the positive Picture.

I ended up at The Winston accidentally after one of the larger hotels in the area had cancelled my booking. What a gift that turned out to be! The room was so charming and truly comfortable. I particularly enjoyed being able to open the balcony door and the windows to let in the night air as I slept. I looked...

We felt very welcome from the minute we entered and were looked after extremely well by the friendly staff of the hotel. Since our flight was only in the night, we were able to get a late check out at 15:00 instead of 11:00 (at a price).

Avoid the Winston Hotel! I will certainly never stay at this property again. From the start of our stay on Thursday, through the present (Saturday), we have been treated poorly by the incompetent staff on site. This poor treatment has ranged from a failure to provide the pre-paid airport transfer and an adequate number of rooms for the members of...

We loved The Winston Hotel. I chose it because I love boutique hotels because I always find the heart and level of service to be greater in a boutique hotel and I found this to be true here. Since it is not a large chain hotel, with the same redundant decor, it was quite interesting looking at the different art...

The Winston Hotel in Rosebank is a very well decorated Boutique Hotel, the service was attentive and friendly.... We requested a ,,blue,, room when we confirmed our reservation... The room was nicely dressed and decorated, just the bathroom felt a little tiered and not well maintained (definitely not 5 star) and in line with the rest of the room. The...

We stayed at The Winston November 9th-12th and it was a lovely few days. The hotel is very charming- it is beautifully decorated and the staff is very attentive and helpful. Wi-Fi always worked. It is very close to the Rosebank station- if you are doing any tours the team will take you to the pick-up station for the Joberg...

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...
