Recently spend a night at the Hotel Windsor. Requested a room with a spa and had to pay for a suite to get it.
The suite (The Sir Winston Churchill Suite) was incredibly spacious but really tired. There was a spa (below the shower) and it may have fit two people if they were very small and thin. We're not oversized but what we would regard ourselves as average size and we had no hope of getting both of us in at the same time. The hot water tap in the shower came off in my hand and i couldn't get the TV in the drawing room to work. The TV in the bedroom was fine. The bed was comfortable - nothing fantastic - unlike beds on other hotels we've stayed.
The staff were great - polite, friendly and efficient - and the breakfast served in the room was hot and above average.
The hotel is well located at the top end of town but for the money I would rather have stayed at the Park Hyatt across the road.
