An absolote rip-off. You pay all that money, and then they organise a wedding right next to your room, in the open air, so no one in the hotel can sleep. On asking the hotel if there is any time limit for this, 11, midnight, 1 am, they said 'no. It can go for much longer.' Visitors beware.

Stayed here on a company retreat. The rooms are very spacious - more like a small suite than a hotel room. The hotel itself is rather charming - it feels like staying at a country lodge, complete with the wooden floors, Sherlock Holmes inspired library/bar and expansive grounds that you can explore. As other reviewers remarked, it lacks the finesse and attention to detail of a good 5 star hotel. Food is strictly ok, rooms are clean but a little "old", and service is adequate but no one will bend over backwards. A word of caution - Windsor is located quite far out of Nairobi city, and with Nairobi traffic, you will definitely not be able to travel around. The hotel itself has large grounds to walk around, if you're not a golfer, so think of it more as a retreat location than a city break. Overall adequate and charming, but not 5 stars.

The hotel is average on facilities but five star on price.its past its hey day and does require refurbishment.on arrival check in was fast,with a welcome drink .staff were courteous and friendly.i slept on room m 222 next to the hotel lobby after reading previous reviews prior to check in.the reason being that this was a biz trip and wifi signal strength is at peak next to the lobby.room was spacious,with a Victorian type furniture.spotlessly clean but carpet past it's sell by date. Breakfast andlunch lacked variety befitting 5star status.i did not play golf but the course was well kept.all in all there are other hotels with better value for same price.

Room Tip: Next to lobby if you want wifi.

I wouldn't say this hotel was terrible, but it most certainly doesn't live up to it's name of being good, not even close.

I spent 2 nights here when my company put me here for a business trip. The whole building has a sort of run down but wiped with polish feel. Carpets are clearly very old, lots of stains where ever you look, but yet you could tell they are sweeped several times daily. The rest of the building shares this feel. It's like imagine having a very stained dirty shirt that you just washed. It's clean, but it's certainly not pleasant looking.

Front desk employees seemed helpful enough, though I never really needed to use their services. Most of the times they seemed bored out of their minds, perusing the internet or playing with their cellphones.

Now to my room. It was a gueen sized standard room. It was extremely small. 200 square feet or less... The toilet would barely flush!

Also, the noise in this place especially if you stay on the ground level is terrible, however, it didn't come from the other rooms; service personnel

Internet didn't work for me as well. They claimed free wireless and yea it was there, but it never worked steadily enough for me to do anything more than send an email here or there when I could get it to cooperate. Like some other people have said as well, the bed sheets are very thin, and like everything else, really ragged (despite being "clean")

All and all, I would not recommend this place, nor would I want to stay there again... it's one of the older hotels in the area, and it shows. Do yourself a favor and spend more money to stay at a nicer place.

Room Tip: stay away from the ground level if you really have to be accommodated here

The Windsor is grossly overstated in many areas, and it does not have the character, which we associate with a luxury hotel. Began everything with a very dry check in. I as a guest had to say good day and have a surely response. They gave me instructions as in the prison. No please and no thank you. The rooms are average though, but the furnishing is very old. fans provided are a poor joke, they only make noises but dint cool the room!

The mattresses on the beds (double beds only by pushing the single beds possible) are very firm, and little sleep. Bathrobes were (contrary to our expectations) not in the room and had to be requested several times by telephone. In the bathroom the taps ran colored water. Couldn't believe my eyes. My spouse was extremely annoyed and we had to leave the hotel earlier than scheduled

breakfast rush hour at the Windsor's Main restaurant, absolutely over strained however, tried their best to be a friendly team showed full use in setting of tables but service, they had no time. The staff had their way through the restaurant without regard to the guests' service, in order to take account of the massive rush. There were a lot of helpless roaming guests, with full plates capacity to show through the restaurant crept. Very embarrassing for a special class of hotel.

A good golf course, friendly staff especially at the fitness center and an obsolete steam room. Probably a 2 or 3 star hotel

Room Tip: why not try other hotels in the city
