“Unexpected Delight”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Went to this hotel for a Ladies Night. Hadn't heard anything about this hotel so wasn't overly excited. What a surprise!! It's a little gem! Beautifully decorated, very welcoming atmosphere and then the food! Lovely meal, served on pretty matching crockery. Couldn't find fault with anything. Will certainly visit again

Room Tip: Didn't stay as we are local

What a superb, beautiful hotel. The rooms are gorgeous, the decor and attention to detail in the communal areas is so tasteful and elegant. A refreshing change from the usual chain hotels. Food, especially breakfast is excellent with the use of high quality ingredients served beautifully on Denby Imperial Blue earthenware. All in all a great location at a reasonable price. So pleased I found his place.

This hotel is small, yet perfectly formed! Welcoming, beautiful entrance hall filled with comfy sofas. Nice dining room, country retreat feel. I could hear woodpeckers from the car park. Staff were professional, friendly and welcoming. Service was excellent. Spotlessly clean, everything sparkled.
A refreshing change from faceless hotel chains. Perfect for lone female travellers. I dined in, good menu choice. Other guests were regulars, I can see why people come back.
I stayed in room 23 ground floor, had everything I needed. Bathroom was a litte chilly but room was fab overall, bed was really comfortable. I would highly recommend and look forward to returning.

I used the Pines for people to gather following my Dad's funeral. It was the perfect venue for us to say a final goodbye to my wonderful Dad. The Pines is intimate, cosy, warm and friendly - nothing corporate about this one-off hotel.

Teas, coffees and the bar all awaited us on arrival. The catering was excellent and I put the menu together with Simon, the brilliantly helpful, flexible and accommodating manager. Everything was made on-site and people especially loved the home made cakes. Everyone liked the 'different' and personal approach/style from the major hotel chains. No plain white china in sight but instead beautiful blue floral china that was in-keeping with the feel of the hotel. The open log fire and the comfy sofas added to the feel of the hotel.

We milled around the hotel and great freshly cooked food arrived and was cleared away accordingly, and then more tea and coffee was made at the drop of a hat. The hotel staff were unobtrusive and left us to remember my Dad's life without any hint of wanting us to leave.

I have been coming to this area for over 10 years now and the Pines Hotel is the best in the area and has a nice free carpark. The recently updated rooms I have stayed in are roomy and very comfortable and would recommend this to anyone visting the area. The staff are very friendly and will you help you in any way they can to make your stay more comfortable. The food is excellent and good value for money and I have even brought other visitors to dine there that were staying in other hotels.

Hosted a murder mystery here. Staff attentive food good but hotel feels dated. For the cost I would say it was reasonable value for money. For the area it is ok. Gardens nice for a wedding ! ........................

The Pines Hotel is a very welcome change from the Corporate chains and the usual B&B etc. An excellent location to Windsor but just far enough not to be in the insane price bracket. The room itself was an excellent standard and a very comfortable bed too. I would have easily rated this hotel as Excellent except that the en-suite was a bit of a let down probably because we are used to power showers and fancy toiletries etc. but really it was fine. It's a small hotel but priced right - I would not say it suits perhaps families with small kids but it would be fine for couples etc. I've stayed in many hotels all over the world and I have never been given a bottle of wine when checking out to say thank you for staying - apparently they like to do this for new guests. This is a stroke of genius and as a result I'm never likely to forget The Pines and I am certainly going to stay here again. A friendly and intimate hotel, clean and well run - one of the best in the Windsor area and certainly the best in this price bracket - well done The Pines.
