We had two rooms booked here for a weekend with friends. There was no one there to welcome us just a tatty note taped to the entrance door telling us to take our room keys from a key safe next to the door (also gave code for the safe) how safe could that be? We should have turned around at... More

We had stayed in the Frances Lodge about 5 years ago and were really impressed. Well it was newly decorated at that time and the owner was there to greet us. We had neglected to read the current reviews which would have given us a cautious thought. We had asked and had confirmed room number 9, where we had previously... More

Frances Lodge in owned and run by a very friendly team who are more than happy to go out of their way to help in any way they can. The rooms are clean, warm and welcoming, they have excellent facilities and can accommodate the single traveller or whole families. I have stayed there a few times and it is my... More

It was the worst place I have ever stayed in it was smelly, dirty, uncooked food dining area was like sitting in a motorway cafe with plastic chairs that were also very dirty, basic food and a very rude manager. Not surprised it's up for sale.

When we booked at this place we thought we were going to stay in a normal/usual UK type B&B. Regrettably we were a bit disappointed since the place is not actually inhabited by the owners. It is more of an independent guest house monitored by cameras when no one is present on site. A commercial managed approach rather than a... More

Nice b&b in a great location. Good value for money - always great service from Stuart and a fabulous breakfast. Easy walking distance from centre of Windsor. Told it is going to close which is a real shame.

Myself and my husband stayed here for 2 nights. Rooms are quite a nice size and the bathrooms are a good size to be able to move around in. We had a room at the front of the house but it was very quiet at night. We had a fabulous welcome from Stuart and nothing is too much trouble for... More

As the title suggests, second time we have stayed here, have been back this year with our two young children. Rooms are very large with full size bunkbeds and a Kingsize double. Rooms are clean and bright. We like the fact that you are not on a clock for check in and check out. After a full day at LEGOLAND... More

This is one of the few places to stay in Windsor where the prices are reasonable, £70 a night in my case. Stuart was very reasonable and unbureaucratic to deal with. I made my reservation over the phone while on a coach to Barcelona airport, and he treated me as areasonable customer, unlike certain hotel chains. The room was fine... More

Me and my partner stayed here over the August Bank Holiday weekend. There are many good things about the B&B: location, breakfast, quiet at night, clean sheets, hot shower. However there is a lack of attention to details which I found a little off for the price. There were huge cracks down the ceiling in our bedroom, the walls and... More
