Drawing inspiration from the culturally-rich heritage of the greater Johannesburg area, much thought went into the construction of the five-star hotel, from its locality to its architectural influences.
Sir Hubert Baker brought his love of stonework, masonry, brick and plaster to South Africa in 1893. Here, he began an enduring relationship with Cecil Rhodes who commissioned various architectural marvels which, to this day, radiate elegance and charisma. Eventually, “Herbert Baker masterpieces” where interspersed around the countryside, many of which landed up in-and-around the suburb of Rosebank, Johannesburg, as he became popular amongst the established Randlords of the area. It is with this sense of fine nostalgia that the owners of The Winston Hotel decided to lay the foundation for the creation of the endearing Winston Hotel. The establishment pays homage to Sir Hubert Baker’s legacy with beautifully crafted architecture - all dressed in a modern interpretation of the distinguished colonial residences of a bygone era.
Knowing exactly how The Winston Hotel would be designed, the owner’s set out to find the perfect location to build. It was in Rosebank that they happened upon a property that was home to a magnificent Jacaranda tree – standing tall in its splendour, the owner’s instantly fell in love and knew that their five-star boutique hotel would be built around this central piece…and so on 6 Tottenham Avenue, the foundations were set for this fine establishment.
The Winston’s central location makes it the perfect stopover retreat for holidaymakers or acts as a prime hub for the discerning business traveller. Conveniently situated within walking distance of the well-known Gautrain system, guests can safely and efficiently navigate from the airport to the hotel and to other points of interest within Johannesburg.
We also offer a dedicated chauffeur-driven vehicle to collect and drop-off our guests at a selected destination of your choice within the greater Johannesburg area.
