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.
