Stayed at The Winston Hotel during a business trip in Feb. I really enjoyed my stay, it was excellent. The rooms are large and beautifully furnished. The beds were comfortable and very luxurious. I found the staff was extremely professional and obliging and I loved the restaurant and the breakfast.

I highly recommend this hotel!

We had a very lovely stay at the Winston hotel. The most amazing part of our stay was the service. The staff at the Winston really do go the extra mile and we experienced full 5 star treatment. Thank you so much for making sure our wedding night ended absolutely perfect.

Lovely property in a rather boring suburb (that's for another review :) ). Quiet, quaint, beautiful old house with spacious rooms with character, small but lovely pool, great breakfast, very nice staff in the restaurant. The downside is the front desk. Both the evening and morning staff were so ho-hum about basic questions it was really remarkable (and a bit humorous). Restaurants nearby? Few recs without details. Train schedule? "I think it leaves every 15 min" (was actually every 30 on Sunday). Cost of a taxi to the mall/restaurants (mind you, the ONLY place to go in the city): "I have no idea". Literally, this is what the night manager said. He was happy, of course, to arrange a hotel taxi that (not surprising) we found out when we ubered home was 5Xs the cost of a regular taxi/uber. If they shaped up in the front, I'd rate this place much higher. Right now, a solid 2.5, no better.

Dear Jamie E,

On behalf of The Winston Hotel, I would like to thank you for staying with us.

We take our guests comments very seriously and I would like to assure that our front desk desk, and our entire management and staff, do their utmost to assist our guests with all of their requests. I do apologise if you felt otherwise. It is a shame that you chose to rate our hotel so poorly, as you do mention that you enjoyed our hotel and facilities.

With regards to the hotels cars, these are luxury vehicles driven by our trusted and insured drivers and are therefore more expensive than Uber. Hotel transfers are generally, in the majority of hotels, more expensive than Ubers - however you are receiving a premium service.

Our staff and management undergo constant training and are a dedicated team who do their utmost to ensure our guests a memorable and enjoyable stay.

I hope that this addresses your concerns. Should you wish to discuss this further please email me direct operations@thewinstonhotel.co.za and I will be glad to assist.

Best regards,

Romi Metta
Guest Relations Manager

We booked the Winston for 3 nights but our flight home was cancelled and we ended up staying 7. We absolutely loved everything about the hotel and were thrilled to return for the additional nights. It felt like we were staying in someone's luxurious home. The rooms are huge, beautiful and extremely comfortable. The shower was even better than ours at home. The public areas are lovely. The staff was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Johannesburg.
