“Our second visit, as good if not better than the last time”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Have been to Windsor House on 2 occasions, both times with our family during the summer holidays . It has a fantastic location right on the beach which is perfect for our children. Their ages range from 10 to 22 years old and they all had a fantastic time, kayaking, body boarding etc all at the house so no need to bring your own. The house is very well equipped with modern facility's but also has some great quirky art, stag heads etc. Hoping to book our 3rd visit next year, cant recommend it enough. Try and bag yourself the top bedroom if you can, views are amazing.

Fabulous location with great views. Dolphin watching is amazing! We had the attic room - great sea view from the bath!
Couldn't wish for more. Loved it

“Fabulous location, house could be fantastic.”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

There wasn't any toilet paper when we arrived, either! We left lots when we left, though! Emma was a star and extremely helpful, so thank you.
Windsor House is right on the stoney pebble beach at Borth, please be aware that dogs are not welcome on the beach from April? to October which meant a car ride down to the lovely sandy beach just beyond the golf club - not a major problem.
The house itself is in need of some TLC which the owner has said will be liberally applied over the Winter. They are all minor faults, mainly cosmetic, but, again it would have been good to have been made aware before we arrived.
Something that prospective guests should be aware of are the stairs up to the master bedroom. The bedroom is in the eaves of the house - fantastic views from the loo and bath - but the last few stairs don't have a handrail - just the edge of the trap door to hold on to. We had an elderly parent with us who really struggled to use the stairs - only once. It was a shame because that room is the only en-suite and would be great as a self contained area for grandparents. Watch out for protruding floorboard and decking nails.
Simon the owner is great and the house has lots of outdoor kit to be used - boats, fishing rods etc.
Borth itself doesn't really have a lot to offer but we saw dolphins - which made our holiday!

“Golf in West Wales”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

6 golfers had a wonderful stay in Windsor House and can thoroughly recommend the establishment. We managed to play Royal St David's ( go by train from Machynlleth), Aberdovey and Borth & Ynyslas.We had a couple of evening snacks at the Victoria Inn, a pint in the Friendship and breakfast in the Limit cafe.All venues were good value.
Windsor House was the perfect place to stay with good and modern facilities. We had gorgeous weather which makes it an ideal location with the beach outside the back door.

“Home from home”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2012

A fantastic place to stay. The house is in a wonderful location, right on the beach. You can sit on the decking at the back of the house, look out over the sea and watch the sun going down. It isn't luxurious but very comfortable, warm in the winter, lovely open plan kitchen and dining room - great for meals with family or friends, showers that work and comfortable beds. Couldn't really fault it and I'm really fussy.
