Great location, great rooms, great food!
We stayed at the Winchester in early September 2011 for a week and would highly recommend it. While we had a suite booked for ourselves and our two girls (5,7) my parents were booked in to a standard room but were upgraded to suite on check in - both our rooms had an ocean view which is really spectacular, particularly at sunset. The rooms had a complimentary bottle of wine, fresh fruit platter. A special little bag of goodies was waiting for the girls which was a lovely gesture. The food and wine we really enjoyed and so good we ate in several evenings; breakfast was sumptuous. The dining room pace of service was a bit hit and miss with some time long waits, but overall good. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the shuttle to the waterfront area was used several times. Secure parking at the back is good if a bit small. The girls dipped in the heated outdoor pool even in September - they had it to themselves! Location is great, hop on/hop off bus just across the road and 10 minutes or so by taxi to the city centre. We loved it!
