“I would give it 6 stars”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We just spent 10 days in England on the escorted tour staying in every city for 1 night, out of 10 hotels, this was absolutely THE BEST. I think that we were exceptionally lucky to stay at this hotel as part of our itinerary. You will not find a better location in Windsor and you will not find a better service in England and not just in Windsor. The rooms are modern, spacious, light and comfortable; rooms have safe, mini bar, robes, slippers, ironing board, tea set, large TV, modern shower with lavender soap, and more - everything you need after a day of activities. The restaurant is great, breakfast was delicious, bar service was excellent for dinner and very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay in the hotel and wished we had more nights to spend there. When in England, this will be our #1 choice. Thank you staff at Macdonald Windsor Hotel.

Room Tip: We were in standard rooms and they were great

I stayed at the Macdonald Windsor Hotel with my husband and two children aged 5 and 6. It was a beautiful hotel in a perfect location. The service we received was exceptional. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling for business, with friends or family. The food was lovely, the rooms were amazing and the staff were so attentive and welcoming. Highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely be staying again.

Room Tip: If you stay at the front of the hotel you have an amazing view of Windsor Castle. We were in rooms...

This hotel was first class in every way. All rooms were exceptionally clean and had every item that you may require had you not brought them with you. The staff were attentive to all your needs, David Lawson, head concierge could not do enough so that your stay at the hotel was memorable. The food was excellent and well presented Both my partner and myself would recommend this hotel to all our friends.

Looking for a hotel in Windsor for our Wedding Reception, we almost missed the Macdonald with its modest High Street entrance. However, once we stepped through the revolving door we discovered an absolute gem – modern in style but traditional in the quality of the service provided; this classy hotel and its very professional staff were a perfect match for our Guildhall Wedding ceremony on 14th June 2014.

From our initial meetings with Hannah and Caroline, the event co-ordinators, to our final thank you to the Concierge, we found the Macdonald Windsor team had a thoroughly ‘can do’ attitude toward satisfying our requirements. Most significantly this entailed re-configuring Caleys Restaurant to accommodate our 26 guests.

Come the big day, arrival drinks and canapés flowed with ease – followed by a perfectly timed and delicious lunch. Service throughout was excellent from the charming and friendly staff.

All this in the heart of Windsor – superb!

I booked an executive double room at this hotel to celebrate my son's 1st birthday with my wife. We arrived and left our car with the concierge as I had booked parking with the hotel, this was a stress free process. The staff were friendly and always happy to help. The room was very spacious even with a cot bed set up. We used the hotel's cot bed which was very clean and lined with clean sheets. The room had modern decor and was clean as was the bathroom. I had booked afternoon tea for the first day which was served in the lounge and it was great. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and the breakfast was nice but the restaurant vegetarian menu was lacking variety. The staff were great and offered the lounge menu in the restaurant. The restaurant staff also brought out a cupcake with a sparkler for my son as it was his birthday. This hotel appears to cater for all, couples, business users and families. Windsor Castle is just across the road, the river Thames was only a 15 minute walk and you can cross the river in to Eton. I would strongly recommend trying to get a castle view room as we had a courtyard view. This didn't really effect our stay but a room with a view would be welcomed by anybody.
