We stayed at the Windsor Hotel last October and after booking well in advance, I opted for a room with the " Coutyard" view. They must have got the translation wrong as the courtyard consisted of a side view, looing onto blank wall next door - nearly wrecked my neck to try get a look at the sky from the window!
Our room was tiny, I wouldn't mind this normally as most hotels in Europe are small, but the thing that annoyed my was the fact that it was quite grubby and run-down . The Bathroom was small but at least modern - the best bit about the room was the bathroom!
The main problem I had with the Windsor, however, was the noise from the corridor and adjoining rooms. Not that the clientel was roudy or niosey, it was that the walls were so thin, you could hear everything. Each morning I woke to the the sound of next door taking a shower, however, it was not just a normal shower, the sound was so loud it was like as if a fire brigade were spraying the place with water!
On a good note they did serve breakfast untill 11 and rooms were cleaned each day.
The location also is excellent, right oppsite the Grand Plage and Casino. Also, please note that if you miss breakfast, Cafe Bleu across the road does an excellent continental breakfast for around €9. Here you can relax with a paper and watch the surfers on the beach and the rest of the world go by. I would recommend this as its far more relaxing then eating in the Hotel breakfast room.
If I was returning to Biarritz, the noise and run-down room at the Windsor would deter me from staying there!
