Efficient and friendly hotel directly opposite parliament with ideal access to train or tram. Rooms overlooking inner courtyard can be dark, but on the positive side they will be free of city centre traffic noise. All decorations are well maintained. Lobby can be cool in winter and not that friendly as a lounge area. Check out if wifi is or... More

Rooms were a little airless, would have been nice to have been able to open a window. Otherwise, it was perfect! In completely unrelated news, this submission form won't let me submit unless I meet a character limit. Odd.

Great ambiance. Don't get room above stairwell. concierge & guest noise travels into rooms- disturbed rests & sleep. Low chairs & tables in Cricketers Bar gone! high ones very awkward. Staff lovely-one a bit noisy & nosy. Will still return.

Old world charm in a lovely location of Melbourne city. Great service and prompt room service. Spacious rooms and high ceilings. Restaurant is a bit over priced but food was delicious and presented lovingly. The hotel can do with an upgrade, (creaking and uneven floors and you could hear the elevator going up down from our room) and I hope... More

A repeat visit again for work. Whilst definitely not a business hotel, I'm willing to forgo some services for comfort and a sense of coming home at the end of a busy day. Swags and Tails and chintz last seen 25 years ago abound in the rooms but again, I find this a charming part of staying here. Super comfy... More

The Windsor is a beautiful building. The service and quality is second to none. From the time you check in, to the time that you leave, you are looked after with that old fashioned service where nothing is too difficult. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend The Windsor hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Windsor is Australia’s most loved and recognised grand hotel. Built in 1883 during the Victorian era and pre-dating other notable hotels such as The Savoy, Waldorf Astoria, Ritz Paris and The Plaza Hotel, it set a benchmark for style, elegance, sophistication and charm which remains ever present today. The hotel is located in Melbourne’s most central and fashionable district. Its location is in close proximity to the corporate, financial and designer heart of Melbourne. Many of the city’s best theatres, landmark attractions and sporting venues are within a comfortable walking distance. The hotel is located 20km from Melbourne’s Domestic and International Airport, with a traveling time of between 20-45 minutes. Parliament train station and tram stops including the City Circle route are located at the hotel’s doorstep. ... more   less
