Having some fine tastes, we were definitely disappointed with the Windsor hotel. The hotel certainly didn’t come across to how we had imagined it – an impressive historic structure with unsurpassed views. Instead the hotel has a road in front of it between the building and sea, and is not the only structure along this road. At the hotel’s price we certainly felt like we were ripped off, deciding that even had we received a 50% discount we would have been disappointed. Arriving late in the evening to a stale, damp room, the bed was so uncomfortable that I seriously just wanted to leave again. The hotel and room interior, bedding and curtains is so old fashion with photographs of people in the 80’s watching Wales. No room service or friendly staff available. The only positive was that we had only booked one night at this place and didn’t have to stay longer than 24 hours!!
Do yourself a favour and book another one of the hotels in Hermanus that will give you plenty of views in a far nicer room.
