Lovely high tea today, spoiled by the fact that they increased their prices over 50% without advising anyone. So not worth the money for pasty sandwiches. We booked in October, advised of an amount, they confirmed our booking in an email. They then increased their prices Nov 1, increased again for a "holiday price". Nothing mentioned in the menu outlining the $30pp increase. Very disappointed that no one had the courtesy to advise when we were seated of the 'revised price'. When speaking to the manager, she basically said 'too bad'. Disgusting. We were looking forward to this treat for months and it was completely ruined. #windsorarmshoteltoronto #scammed #thanksfor thechristmastea #sorryaboutyourtip

We went for high tea for our friend birthday, it was 6 of us . We were seated in a small table, we had to be super careful, pouring our tea, or serving our scones. The table was no more then a meter long, by 50, a wrong movement and will have been a disaster The bathroom, had an awful smell, that you can smell though the mask. For the price that we pay ($432.00) was NOT worth it, Tipping it’s up to the client, and NOT a 18 % tip on your bill 15% would have been more then plenty, under the circumstance Teresa C.

First, we had originally tried to cancel our reservation a few days before and were not allowed to. We were very much looking forward to our stay but we had something come up so accommodating our request would have been appreciated. We decided to go as it was a lot of money, so we moved things around to make it work. We were still very excited to come stay at the hotel as we had heard great things about it and the photos we had seen online made it look amazing. When we arrived at the hotel we were informed that our room wasn't ready and we needed to wait for it. We were slightly early so we didn't mind. We went out for a bit and then came back for a couple drinks at the hotel bar. We were very disappointed to see some of the staff were very relaxed with their mask wearing, either pulling it down under their chin or nose. Also, customers were walking around without masks and the staff did nothing about it. This made us feel unsafe, and wondered what other details were being missed if something as big as COVID regulations were being ignored. When we got to our room we were let down. It was very small. Everything felt old and dirty. There was an odd smell in the room. The carpet was old and bunched up in areas. The TVs were at least 10-15 years old. The bed was horrible, it had massive sunken areas. We went out for an early dinner with friends and came back around 8. We laid down and tried to rest, and it was a very uncomfortable experience. That's when we decided to leave. We packed up and went downstairs, and met the person at the desk, who had his mask also pulled down. I said we were leaving and he said ok and went and caught our car. He did not ask once about why we were leaving. You would think that if a customer was leaving at 8:30pm instead of staying the night you would inquire about why they are leaving to see if there was something wrong. Before coming to this hotel we had stayed 2 nights at the Four Points in Niagara Falls. It is a basic hotel. That experience was so much better than what this hotel offered, and for a fraction of the cost. The Windsor Arms is supposed to provide a 5-star experience and what we experienced was one of the worst we have ever had at any hotel.

We celebrated our wedding at the hotel 20 years ago and it was fine at the time but visited recently for our anniversary to enjoy a visit to the spa and lunch afterwards and were sadly disappointed. Ever since they added the private residences, the rest of the hotel has gone downhill - big time. The spa hasn't kept up with the times and is wildly over-priced; ditto for the restaurant, which features the same decor from 20 years ago. There are so many much better options in the Yorkville area now - avoid this tired old pile of crap; no one should pay top dollar for such a lousy environment.
