Whenever I'm in Melbourne I stay at the Windsor. I love it's charm and personality - plus it's great value compared to the other high end hotels. I always recommend staying here. The service is excellent and the staff are wonderful!

Best value for money. Service and quality excellent. Nothing too much trouble, asked for twin beds at check in and reorganised to accommodate in
no time at all. All members of our group (3 rooms) made to feel special.
Centrally located and ideal position for trams, trains.

Ambience is on par with the Banff Springs in Banff Canada and Empress in Victoria Canada. Short walk for anyone to old Central Business District. Nothing else compares in Melbourne if you like a touch of “historical seasoning” where you choose to stay.

The chips with curried mayonnaise are yummy and if you're lucky you will get the gorgeous and sweet Mary from room service bringing them to you! The decor and atmosphere at the Windsor is wonderful and I love going to the restaurant.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us and of course from myself a belated Happy Birthday from all of us!

I agree that the curried mayonnaise does strangely work perfectly and to know that Mary looked after you so well is simply fantastic. I will ensure that she receives your kind words this coming week.

I hope that we may have the pleasure of your company for may special occasions to come.

An ageing beauty, but still a comfortable and charming place to stay. Everything was in good nick, staff were courteous and friendly and the room was spacious and quiet. Can't beat the location and you can't replicate the historical feel.

Loved the Old world ambience and history. Room was a bit small but functional and tasteful. Bed was amazingly comfortable. It was a very special experience but only available to me because of special deal on room rates. Would not be able to afford otherwise.

Dear Bronwyn B,

Thank you so much for your kind review of your most recent stay with us.

We did over the past year update all of our hotel's bedding so to hear that you found our beds most comfortable simply fantastic.

We do have a number of room and suite types available and depending on your length of stay others may be suitable with more space, however our Traditional Rooms are comfortable and perfect for a short overnight stay.

I hope that we may have the pleasure of your company in the near future and until then we do as always remain at your service.

With our kindest regards,
Nick
