The Royal Adelaide Hotel

Reviewed January 8, 2013

Very well located hotel with nooks and crannies of an old building. Well maintained with a delightful staff that was very helpful. A little bit of a walk from the castle, but on a lovely street, across from the long walk.
Room was a bit small but clean.

Room Tip: There are no lifts in this hotel so ask for a room that uses the back staircase - less stairs to cli...

I stayed here for business for a night and for that purpose it wasn't at all bad. It's fairly easy to find with sat nav and if you book in time the (charged) carpark is necessary as there's absolutely no on street parking in the area.

The lady who checked me in looked a tad inconvenienced by my arrival but I was soon in my (small) double room. Minor gripes in the room would be dirty teaspoon on the hospitality tray and a large patch of mould on the bathroom wall and having the bed butted up against the wall on one side was a little strange.

A rather more important moan would be the radiator in my room being turned off and the receptionist on duty that evening seemingly not knowing how to set my rooms air con unit to heat the room. The bathroom was also very cold with secondary double glazing not fitted and a heated towel rail that wasn't up to the job! Additionally the hotel is on finals for Heathrow so expect aircraft noise if the winds in the right / wrong direction.

I ate in the bar that evening and the burger and chips was fantastic, £4.80 for a pint of beer however was (in my opinion) disgustingly overpriced.

For all my moans above I slept well and breakfast was ok although I only had cereal and toast and (luke warm) coffee.

To sum up a bit more attention to detail in the rooms and looking again at bar prices and I'd be happy to stay again.

Recently spent just one night whilst visiting the area.Four star,not sure just a few little things need adressing. the room was incredibly cold due to the curtains covering the radiators and the air con which supposedly could be used to heat the room didnt work,until reception turned the central control on! No cold water in the basin, a problem with the boiler apparently.The staff were very helpful and polite. Parking is an extra £15.Very easy walking into Windsor.I had an evening sandwich at £9 plus £5 surcharge.Well made and enought for 2.Very comfortable bed and lovely pillows.
Yes I would stay again.

Stayed one week there. Although my room was small, it was comfortable and cozy. The hotel is central to many places within Windsor. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel has a nice dining room and parlor/conference room. They have a varied breakfast and dinner menu. The food was delicious. The only drawbacks were the stairs, which are a challenge for me and I couldn't get cell phone reception in my room.

Pros:
1) Good price!
2) Staff there is really helpful and nice. I needed a charger for my mobile and Stephanie, one of the staff members, lent me hers. Also, she was able to find another room for me, because my original room was very small.
3) Room seervice: food is good!
4) Bedroom really clean.
Cons:
1) Small stairs, they don't have elevator (of course, because this is an old building)
2) My "original" room was too small for me. It was the room located on the first floor, near the lobby. Luckly they had another room available for the same price, which was located on the 3rd floor.

Room Tip: I got a room on the 1st floor it was too small. Try to book a room located on 2nd or 3rd floor. Howe...

Booked in here on the spur of the moment for a night over in Windsor, pleasently suprised after reading some of the negative reviews, cant really see what all the fuss is about. Secure parking, an easy 5 minute walk into the town center and a good base of you are staying in windsor. Friendly reception staff on arrival who couldnt do more to help. the room was clean and modern, nice decor and very comfortable and quiet. I would definitely recommend this for an overnight or short break if you want to visit windsor.....mind you, make sure it is a short break....windsor is really not worth writing home about

Having never been to Windsor before, we wanted to be central to the area without it costing the earth but also to be able to get to Legoland to keep a 5yr old

This hotel was easy to find and was only 7 mins walk to Windsor Castle and all the beautiful shops. Plenty to see and do.

Staff at the hotel are welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is plentiful with lots of cooked breakfast options. Lots of cereals to choose from, fresh fruit, yoghurt, Danish pastries and toast. You can eat in the hotel at night which costs £18 per person for 2 courses but we didn't try this out as we couldn't seen a child's menu, although I'm sure they would accommodate them.

Hotel rooms are large with a flat screen Tv and tea and coffee making facilities. Beds are comfortable. Bathroom is also large but could have done win a bit of a spruce up but it's not like you spend your stay in there is it?

Overall a brilliant location and quality hotel. Well definitely use again.
