We booked this hotel based on its rating and found it to exceed our expectation. We only stayed one night but found the hotel to be worthly of our 5 stars... The bar service was good but the selections of Cocktails was very limited and expensive £14 each. The hotel room was small but was well apointed with a lovely... More

This hotel is excellent for visiting Windsor Castle. Stayed there with friends this month and had a great room with good food. Parked my car in their garage which saved time looking for parking.All staff were very attentive.

Just celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary at Macdonald Windsor hotel. The staff couldn't have done any more for us to make this celebration so complete.Even down to a card congratulating us. Reception and Concierge answered any questions we had, and helped us with booking tickets for the castle. The room was superb, clean with an amazingly comfortable bed! We had... More

We booked a two night stay through Secret Escapes, with the view to visit LEGOLAND and Windsor Castle. On arrival we were very warmly greeted by valet parking staff, who parked our car and took our luggage to reception, where we were greeted by very friendly reception and conciege staff. Our room was lovely, very clean and modern, with a... More

This hotel is brilliantly central and made a perfect weekend getaway. The rooms and public areas are extremely clean and well maintained. Lovely refreshing complimentary drinks and snacks in the lobby, although sadly the cookie jar seemed permanently empty. The most comfortable beds and nicely sized rooms. Staffing was odd. Twice out of 2 trips to the bar area, we... More

Hotel staff were very professional and would go out of their way to assist us with our requests. We asked for an extra child bed and it was installed in our room within minutes. Rooms are very clean and somewhat modern. The hotel breakfast is a standout, highly recommended.

I generally find the hotels in Eton and Windsor below average quality, but this is by far the best one I've used in this area. 3rd time for me here. Hotel is new and clean. Rooms are not spacious but clean and comfortable. The rooms can be noisy especially from the sounds in the corridor. They have several swinging doors... More

We stayed at this hotel for my birthday and it was a pleasure from start to finish. The valet met us on arrival and parked our car, and we were met with a warm smile at reception and a lovely glass of chilled juice. Check in was swift and we arrived at our beautiful rooms on the top floor (Executive... More

We stayed at the Macdonald for two nights whilst singing at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. Absolutely ideally situated - one minute's walk! - and the service, food, room and attention to detail was absolutely first class. The Staff were so polite and caring. Nothing was too much trouble including an early breakfast on the Sunday. We will certainly visit... More

Bought overnight stay via Secret Escapes and did not regret it. View from room was of back of hotel but I didn't go to stay in the room all the time. Complimentary drinks on arrival too. Room itself was beautiful, spacious and free wifi, free bottled water as well as dressing gowns available with complimentary slippers. Bed was soft and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Coveted with a multitude of awards for exceptional customer service and sustainability, the four-red star Macdonald Windsor Hotel is must-stay hotel in the heart of Windsor. Ideally located 2 minutes' walk from the gates of Windsor Castle and in the centre of the shopping parade, Macdonald Windsor Hotel is the perfect base offering you the most comfortable beds in town. The Royal Borough is home to some of the UK's best known attractions such as Windsor Great Park, Legoland and Savill Gardens, not to mention being just 40 minutes away by train from the heart of our capital; London. And when the day of exploration or work is done and you retire to your room, make sure you indulge on one of the finest steaks, prepared using 21-day aged Aberdeen Angus steak and complimented by a glass of delicious red straight from our AA-rosette awarded Scottish Steak Club restaurant. For bugm.wisiness meetings and conferences, our flexible and accessible meeting space for up to 150 delegates is just the ticket and our Meeting's all-inclusive delegate package with dedicated meeting support helps ticks all of your event objectives. ... more   less
