I have come her for High Tea a few times, and absolutely love the surroundings, the atmosphere and the staff. The teas are amazing, you get to try so many, the food is wonderful. Such a beautiful place to enjoy! with friends or family.

Room as always great but also as always to hot - even with open window. Have stayed in a few different suites but all have had faulty heating and cooling. Hope when the refurb is completed the air - con will match the rest of the hotel.

I've stayed at the Windsor about three times now and it is so different from the standard modern hotels which are all pretty much the same. The old furnishings, carpets and 19th century decor set it apart as a classy building in a great location.

Shower ran hot and cold during use... Wasn't happy with that. Everything else was excellent. Staff were attentive and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for the birthday cake for my partner. It was appreciated.

We came for 7 nights. The staff were kind and considerate. The doormen were attentive and delightful. The room was beautiful and pristine. Loved the heritage architecture; the beautiful staircase, wide hallways. Enjoyed listening to the harpist in the foyer. Beautiful breakfast in the main dining room on Sunday. Highly recommend. Will definitely return.

The Windsor is a fabulous place to stay or just have afternoon tea.If you like old world charm and marvelous service then head to Spring Street for an experience which will be memorable.I especially enjoy afternoon tea there - a silver service and a dazzling array of gateaux.Not cheap but worth every dollar.

Stepping into the foyer of the Hotel Winsor we found ourselves surrounded by luxury that was true to the 1800s. You could forgive us for feeling that the doorman and concierge had been personally waiting for our arrival by way of the greeting we were given. The foyer is like a museum and an area that we spent time exploring... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
