We travel to Melbourne quite often and every time we walked or drove pass The Hotel Windsor, we were always attracted to this beautiful heritage building and we have always wanted to stay here and finally we did manage to book a room through Wotif's secrete hotel and the room we got was probably the Superior Room with a King Bed.
We were amazed by the grand Victorian style interior decoration in the Lobby (and the bar) and the old style elevator. It felt like we have travelled back in time. The room is beautifully decorated with Victorian style furnitures and curtains. The room is reasonably sized but the bathroom is on the smaller side, which doesn't really matter (probably the old days, the bathrooms were small anyway). Although the bathroom vanity feels cheap and may require a bit of upgrade. Having stayed in quite a number of 5 star hotels, we were surprised not to find the standard slippers and good quality in-room coffee (there were cheap instant coffee and tea and bath robes). We were very pleased with the king size bed and the pillows. We both had one of the best sleeps (probably one the of most comfortable beds we've every slept).
The reception staff was friendly and courteous. But when we rang for room service to deliver dental kits, it took 1 minute for the phone call to be answered. Though the delivery was efficient.
Overall it was a pleasant say but with just slight disappointment.
