We booked at the Windsor hoping to experience some old world charm and because of the location which seemed centrally located in the CBD. While the location proved adequate, it was the only aspect of our stay which met our expectations. We booked into a twin room and were disappointed to find that despite the hefty price tag ($40 more... More

Although I booked a budget room I was placed at what seemed to be directly over a trademans entry at the rear. In the early evening and particularly from approx 7am until 7.45am it was extremely noisy with much banging and crashing. Dissapointing as I had worked late and was attempting to sleep. To be fair to your customers, this... More

I'd wanted to stay at The Windsor forever as I love old hotels. It was nice but as is often the case in Australia a lack of attention to detail and a propensity to charge extra wherever possible let it down. The hotel messed up a really simple gift of champagne and other than a short apology note, after we'd... More

Absolutely lovely couldn't recommend it highly enough. Close proximity to the city tourist sights and eateries, it was soooo wonderful to finely stay somewhere that is better value for money than what you pay. When I am next in Melbourne I will definately be staying at the Windsor.

Had a 2 nighter here, per a Discount Voucher setup. Upgraded to a suite for extra, which was very pleasant. From the Doorman, to Check In staff, it was a very much a well run show. Obviously, The Hotel in its heyday was the place to be, but, in spots it is now showing its age. The passages were a... More

It's nice to have a place which shows character in the midst of lots of business options. The character extends to personality and quality of the service, and not just the building. It's my preferred hotel in Melbourne.

Was sceptical at first glance because I prefer more modern accommodation, but I was beyond pleased with The Hotel Windsor. The location was convenient and everyone went out of their way to help and provide directions.

Loved this beautiful old world charm hotel with excellent service, but was absolutely shocked in this day and age in a 5 star hotel, that after booking, there where no disabled rooms at all in this hotel, from a disabled person it really takes very little to make a few changes and you have a disabled room despite this being...

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
