Situated along the scenic Sea Point Promenade and facing the Atlantic Ocean, with the majestic backdrop of Table Mountain, The Winchester 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 Hotel recently underwent a full renovation, which “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 of The Winchester Hotel 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.
