My girlfriend and I stayed at the Mercure in Windsor during Valentine's weekend. We found the location to be perfect; Windsor Castle was literally just across the road and there were a range of options for dining within walking distance. Staff on the reception desk were also polite. If you're concerned about Windsor's notorious parking, don't be. It's free for guests. This influenced my decision when comparing to the Macdonald Hotel, which I hear charges £25.
However, for the price of £125 for a single night (which didn't even include breakfast), I felt that the hotel did not live up to the standard I would have expected. The room was average for a 4* hotel: shower pressure was below par, the air con emitted a constant loud hum resembling a boiling kettle and the walls were paper thin to the extent that I could hear the voices of the people in the neighbouring room. Unfortunately, (and I don't blame Mercure for this) we had a couple of drunken Neanderthals next door who seemed to be doing everything in their power to keep me awake! They were so loud that I had to call reception to complain - I'm not sure if they did anything about it though.
Overall, not the best 4* I've come across but, if location matters, it will meet your demands.
