Relaxing day in Cape Town

A travel blog entry by kvstark

... I was thinking about it during the service too, how people in the West and in Africa just celebrate differently. Or just I don't know...act differently! I am a typical 'cold' northern European, who doesn't really give outward expression of emotion as easily or as dramatically. When I'm happy, or jubilant, you know it for sure, but it's not the same kind of expression of jubilance as when an African person does it. And the same ...

... was hardly any space to even walk to the toilets, let alone eat our meat once it was cooked.

We finally got up to the butcher and ordered our meat (a big slab of beef, lamb ribs, and sausage) at 5pm. From the butcher I took the meat in a large metal bowl up to the crowded room of people at the braai. Someone grabbed my bowl and people’s hands passed it up over their heads until it reached the cooks. I was number 861 and the last number ...

Day 2 - Highland wines

Up early, breakfast again was fantastic. We got all our gear packed in the truck (not a bus or you buy the drive a beer). Headed through Cape Town filled up the truck with desiel 334litres at R2601 or $280. Went to the supermarket to purchase all the food for the fist part of the trip. Then we were on our way. Lunch we had on the ...

... and blind. He got a virus about three years ago that effected his sight, and now it is completely gone. The amazing thing is that earlier in the day, we saw Desmond walking the neighborhood with a cup of coffee and with no aid from a white cane! We couldn't believe that he was blind because there was no way of telling just by looking at him. He said that since he grew up on that street in that neighborhood, he just knows where everything is, right down to ...

Trundling the Streets of Cape Town

... known as Municipal District 6. The other five districts actually had names, but District 6 was just the 6th district. Despite the mal-intent of the oppressors, District 6 became a rich and vibrant section, with all of the various arts of the culture finding their path to expression and recognition, including, of course, music with many, many popular bands and dances. There came a time, though, when the city was growing, both commercially and in ...

    Hotel molto bello


    Abbiamo trascorso 3 giorni (marito, moglie, 2 bambini, suocera) al winchester all'inizio di Gennaio 2007. Le nostre 3 camere erano pulite, ben arredate e molto comode. la colazione era buona. Siamo stati al Cape Grace lo scorso anno, e posso dirvi che la residenza del winchester uno dei migliori hotel a Cape Town. E' davvero molto bello, e anche conveniente. Non vediamo l'ora di tornarci. Un ringraziamento speciale a Ignatius e Stacey.

    Fantastic Hotel in a Great Locations


    We (4 of us) stayed at the Winchester Mansions for 7 nights in November and I cant think of a bad word to say about this place. We were upgraded to adjoining suites on arrival which was a large room with separate bathroom and a shared living area which had a couple of chairs and tv. Our room was spotless and cleaned daily with our mini bar being stocked daily also, the bathroom was lovely with a huge roll top bath and walk in shower. Breakfast was included and there was a good variety of continental and hot food, we were lucky enough to be there to attend their famous Jazz Brunch which is on every Sunday (11-2), this was a fantastic day, where we sat in the courtyard drinking champagne and you could eat like a king for as little as £9!! We didnt have dinner in the hotel but were told that it was very good. Our first couple of days in Cape Town were cool which was unheard of seemingly but after that the weather was beautiful. We ate out most evenings at the V&A Waterfront and thoroughly recommend Belfazars Steak house, would also recommend going along to Camps Bay. The swimming pool is lovely and clean and we spent a few days just lazing by the pool, the men went diving with the Great Whites and said it was a MUST, they were lucky to see 7 Great Whites in the time they were out.

    Loved the Winchester!


    While staying in Cape Town in September 2006, my husband, Joe and I decided to stay in the residential neighborhood of Sea Point. I chose Winchester Mansions because of their sea-facing rooms.

    Lovely hotel with a reasonably priced sea view


    When we arrived at the hotel there was a delay with our room. We were very impressed when the manager of the hotel met us in the bar and offered to pay for our drinks as well as giving us complimentary tickets for a bus tour of Cape Town. We had a wonderful stay at the hotel and enjoyed the personal feel of the hotel. Would love to stay again!



    I stayed at this hotel as a child 25 years ago (ouch), and always remembered it as a wonderful family holiday. I wanted to take my own children there for the same reason and we were certainly rewarded for our decision! We stayed 3 nights in June in the Harvey Suite, which is incredible, especially if you have children.

    A Fantastic break


    We stayed at the Winchester mansions for four days last month and I have to say that is was a fantastic experience. We have stayed in many hotels across the world and for most of them in big chain brands where you know what your going to get, so on booking this small independent hotel I was a bit worried about what I would find.

    Liebenswertes home far from home


    Hier war einfach alles zauberhaft, top service, alles super gepflegt, Lage top !!!

    Ein perfektes Hotel


    Wir waren zu Beginn des Jahres im Winchester Mansions und hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit dort. Das Hotel ist schön, der Service exzellent und auch sonst ist alles makellos. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Suite mit Meerblick. Jeden Abend wurde unsere Bettdecke zurückgeschlagen, ein Schokolädchen aufs Kissen gelegt und das Fernsehprogramm mit der richtigen Seite aufgeschlagen! Das Frühstück war sehr gut, man hat sich etwas von der Karte ausgesucht, was dann frisch zubereitet wurde. Es gibt dort eine hübsche Bar in der man auch draußen sitzen und den Sonnenuntergang genießen kann. Wir haben mehrere Male im Hotel zu Abend gegessen. Das Essen war sehr gut, preislich im Rahmen und es gibt dort einen sehr netten Mann am Piano. Die Lage ist sehr gut, man kann schön am Meer entlang spazieren gehen. Dort joggen auch die ganzen Einheimischen. Wir fühlten uns immer recht sicher und es gab keine Probleme.

    A perfect hotel!


    We stayed at the Winchester Mansions earlier this year and had the most amazing time, the hotel is beautiful, the service is excellent and everything is immaculate. We had a beautiful suite with a sea view, our bed was turned down every night with chocolates left and the tv book opened on the right page! The breakfast is very good, you pick from a menu each morning so it is cooked freshly for you. There is a lovely bar where you can sit outside and watch the sun set. We stayed for dinner several times in the hotel, very good food, very reasonable and there is a lovely chap that plays the piano beautifully. The location is very good, you can go for nice walks along the sea front, all the locals go jogging in this area. We felt very safe and never had any problems.
