Our decision to stay a night at the Windsor was a purely spontaneous one. We were drawn by the grandness and history of the building, both exterior. It was also very good value for the experience and pleasure of staying at a prestegious hotel. Would love to come back for a longer stay soon. So much more we would love... More

Loved staying at the Windsor. Would thoroughly recommend. Any criticisms would come from checking out and enquiring about airport transfers. Were told a shuttle bus would collect and take to airport but ended up at bus terminal. Definitely not what we expected. Happy to have called a cab instead of waiting with others at terminal. Lesson learned. Ask questions.

From the moment when we received a free upgrade when checking in, we knew that we were going to have a wonderful time, and we were right. Special mention to all front desk and concierge staff, you made the experience a wonderful one. We will be back, and this time, we will have to dine there too!

We were very disappointed with the Windsor. Yes, the hotel is old and has a certain charm, but that is no excuse for the mouldy shower cubicle, lack of water pressure, claustrophobic acid etched windows in what was touted a superior room, only one armchair (for two people!) and the constant noise from people and machinery that made it impossible...

This is a beautiful old building but a little run down. The rooms were fine but not exceptional and definitely not five star. That said, the price was very reasonable and included breakfast, so it was good value.

We had a special night away! The service was excellent and the food was fabulous. The location is very convenient with gardens close by and the city shopping and dining within easy walking distance. Love valet parking!

Stayed 2 nights in September while on work. Great location at the edge of the CBD. Got a 'traditional' room at a great rate through Expedia. It was in the 1st floor and just above a tin roof. The room was small as would be expected of a cheapest room type in a City hotel. The decor was dated but... More

Our stay at the Windsor was enjoyable and the history of the place was evident. Staff were very courteous, room was comfortable but slightly stuffy. Windows could not be opened. Detractors were lack of maintenance (broken cushions, blown light globes, carpets needed cleaning, etc.) and poor breakfast service. The staff had people waiting yet many tables were empty, food trays... More
