My husband and I spent a night at this hotel when we were visiting Kottayam last year. Bath tub had cracks and the shower literally sprinkled water. The most disturbing part of the stay was, at around 2am in the morning, someone tried to get into our room. We had the security latch on, so they just left the door... More

I had a lovely room - complete with four-poster but oh dear the restaurant was ghastly. I was handed a drinks menu but then it turned out they didn't have any of the vodkas on it and the ones they did have were double the price - "we are issuing a new menu soon". Food not good - poor quality... More

My wife had stayed here with her parents last year, hoping to exted their stay if they loved the place. However that was not the case. The suite room which they had booked was smelling really bad and the bed covers smelled of naphthalene balls. Her dad requested for an alternate sheet, but it was even worse with its dirt... More

Had been here yesterday for some "good food". Ordered a "Mutton Biryani". The biryani was not edible. Reported the same to the manager, he did not even bother to prepare a different dish. Worst of all, he billed us for it. As said earlier, its a place with potential. But, I would not recommend this place to anyone( thanks to... More

I did not have the opportunity to stay at Windsor-a decision that I am thankful for. Instead we stayed at Fairmont Indraprastha. We did however visit a friend who was staying there and hence this review. Windsor is a fairly large property with tonnes of scope for improvement. Not many hotels enjoy the luxury of having such large lobbies, corridors... More
