Disappointing.

No, the toilet was leaking and the work done in the room was not professional.

Not good.

Pay for what you get. The place had cockroaches. It looks like a haven for working women, with different men/clients throughout the day. The pool was green and only treated on the 28th of October 2023. One lady actually changed naked near the pool area. This is not a place for family or close friends.

Oorslaap om nie laat in die aand die N12 hoofweg te hoef aan te durf nie.

Teleurgesteld.

Ek was baie teleurgesteld. Daar is 4 sterre onder die naam Winchester, maar dis definitief nie. Die waaier en die lugverkoelingstelsel het nie gewerk nie. Die stort se water tap nie uit nie. Ons moes wag met seep-lywe voordat ons verder kon stort. Kamer is bedompig en het 'n muf reuk. Daar was ook net 1 kussing vir elk van ons.

Disappointed.

I was very disappointed. There are 4 stars under the name Winchester, but it's definitely not. The fan and the air cooling system did not work. The shower's water does not drain out. We had to wait with soapy bodies before we could shower further. Room is stuffy and has a musty smell. There was also only 1 pillow for each of us.

The stay was okay, the rooms are not what they show on the pictures.

Even though it was a rainy weekend, its a nice place to escape, wasn't expecting room service which was a bonus, very quite but the pool was kind of green.

Every staff member was friendly and easy to talk to them when need something.

Security on point, easily accessible. WiFi, entertaining braai area and close to a swimming pool. Flexible check in time. But they need to work on the bedding side just a little bit. The shower that we have used was not in good condition. It doesn't supply water accordingly.

The place was okay but some travellers made me feel unsafe.

The room was fine but I was not happy with a large group of drunk people when I arrived on Friday evening, they continued to play loud music every night the whole weekend. I am just glad I got the room next to the reception because I would not feel safe staying next to a big group of drunk and loud people.

For working people the place is good, but not for overseas tourists, sorry.

Breakfast too little, no fruit, no brown bread, too slow, 2 yoghurts and we were there with 9 people. Shower very dirty and only one water sprinkler worked.

Phumzile,
Thank you so much for your kind comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay and was able to study in peace.
But, what's most important - what was your exam results ? Let us know so we can break open a bottle of Moet & Chandon!

Good place to stay.

It is a good place, but we noticed there were renovations being done, so maybe after they're finished the yard will look neater. We absolutely loved the room we stayed in! They just need to seriously improve the breakfast, we did not enjoy/like it at all. One morning we did not even take it because we had not enjoyed it the previous morning. Otherwise it was nice.

Winchester Hotel 's response

Nozi,
I am so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy breakfast because, normally, we receive praise from guests who repeatedly return just for the breakfast.
Having said that, I note that we had a new Chef at the time of your visit but that, we have subsequently replaced him with another. We value your criticism and, further thereto, would like you to accept a complimentary weekend at any time of your choice. We look forward to seeing you again, in the near future. Kind Regards, Alan - Winchester Lodge

Home away from home

I stayed for a weekend and can honestly say, Alan and his wife are lovely people. They make you feel at home and their staff very friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and I really enjoyed the breakfast. The lodge is in a very nice quiet suburb, perfect if you love nature. I would definitely recommend them to anyone coming to Johannesburg.

Maintenance needed

Although we stayed in the executive suite and found the room very clean, the balcony needed repairs and the TV reception was very fuzzy. Reception was not very professional and no information was given re: breakfast. To get from our car to the booked room entailed walking past a laundry area and the wash line area was full of rubble. Also the passage roof was leaking as it rained most of the time we were there - a bucket was placed in the walkway to catch the drops.

Absolutely fabulous !

Undoubtedly the best B&B in the South of Johannesburg. Having travelled extensively, I was amazed at the high level of service and professionalism offered at Winchester Lodge. From the friendly welcome to the magnificent breakfasts, everything was perfect. I will recommend Winchester Lodge to all those looking for a "Home from Home" at realistic prices.

Not totally happy

The place was too noisy - from staff and we were not informed of the grinding that was take place during our stay. Our room was not cleaned on the 1st day, and we also wanted to enjoy the room service for breakfast but were told they were unable to accommodate that because of a staff shortage. Otherwise, they're in a good location, we felt very safe.
