“Very pleasant”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

My room was quite lovely and beautifully presented. The location was great and I enjoyed my stay. The lady who checked me out was very friendly and lovely and the lady who checked was professional and efficient and did nothing wrong but wasn't quite as friendly or welcoming.

We were late booking so looked on Wotif, can't believe our luck with this hotel - not only was it comfortable and beautiful, the room was fabulous. Have stayed in many Melb hotels would stay here again. Thank you Hotel Windsor for making our stay so enjoyable. TC

Gift from our children was a pleasant surprise with elegant traditional accommodation in an historic setting. Great location to access a live show and then follow up with a dinner that was a great fine dining experience. All staff friendly, courteous and attentive. Would choose this location in the future and recommend to friends.

We had a wonderful mid-week night away with our 21 month old. Everything was perfect & our daughter was well catered for. Ordered room service for dessert & wine - red wine was too cold but yummy!....

Classic charm and service; a true delight and rarity in 2014. Elegant reception area and incredibly comfortable bed. Delicious in-room dining options (recommend the Wagyu Burger) and Traditional Room was perfect for a solo business traveler; would have liked toiletries to be replenished after first night, but only a small inconvenience. Complimentary daily newspaper and Express Checkout were appreciated touches.

Classic Victorian hotel, with nicely styled rooms and traditional feel.

Only real place for improvement is the gym - hard to find, hard to get into (door that looks locked but actually slides), hard to get out of (sliding door has no handle on the inside), badly equipped (2 out of 3 cardio machines I tried were wonky or displays broken), poor TVs with poor reception, etc etc.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Fair comment in so much that our gym is modest – many guests choosing to run in the beautiful Treasury Gardens opposite.

Apart from that my thanks for your kind words and apologies for any disappointment caused.

Very positive experience, would visit again. Loved the heritage feel. The foyer and Dining room are very grand. Good location, can walk to any attraction or venue in the city. Very friendly staff at the Cricketers Bar.
