We have stayed at The Hotel Windsor twice now on a short visit to Melbourne. While it is showing some signs of age in the foyer area, the friendly efficient staff and the general ambience of the hotel more than make up for that. Our room on each occasion has been large, and very well equipped. The king size bed is the most comfortable I've slept on, aside from home. A continental breakfast was included in our tariff, and it is here I have my only criticism. The choice of cereals this visit was limited to the more common Commercial cereals. I was looking for a Swiss natural muesli, or a Bircher muesli, but the only muesli was toasted, which is too high in fat and it didn't look very appetising. Nevertheless, we'd be happy to go back again.
