Reviewed 10 February 2014

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights during a biz trip. First time in Windsor. I was upgraded and my room was in the primary part of the hotel, which was nice. Room was spacious enough and certainly had the unique charm of an old historic property. Big step down to the barroom area and big step up into the shower. Not an issue for me but if you are not in perfect health, could be a real issue.
Floors were super creaky, rooms above as well. Thankfully my above room mate was not a dancer or a late night parties so no issues, but I heard from other biz associates who were kept awake by late night folks located above their room.
Overall I liked this hotel and Windsor as well, very neat town.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled on business

Hotel is right in the centre of Windsor close to the castle and is a great hotel in a Georgian building. The staff were great and very helpful. The ladies in the restaurant during the evening meal were just great. All the others were friendly and helpful The room was good although there was no real view and the detitus by the air conditining didn't enhance what view we had. Being an old building it is a bit noisey.
Breakfast good WiFi connection was a bit difficult to connect to and phone reception was patchy

Room Tip: Upgrade to get front rooms but expect some noise

We were looking for a hotel where we could relax for a weekend after a hectic Christmas, and we had a lovely stay. The reception staff were polite and welcoming, our room was well appointed and the beds were wonderful. We were going to the Theatre that evening so we had dinner at 6.30 to accommodate this, we were on a dinner B & B booking, the food was well presented and very good, as was the wine. Service was polite, timely and non intrusive. As I always panic about being late I asked for our cheese, biscuits and wine to be taken to our room for when we returned, the maitre d asked for our return time and said he would take this to our room 15mins prior to return so it didn't go soft/hard which he did. Wonderful. The following day we had b'fast at 10am, there was an extensive cold buffet and hot buffet which was excellent and as much tea/coffee/toast as you could want (served at table). After leaving our room we relaxed even further in the bar / lounge and topped this stay off with afternoon tea. A lovely stay in the heart of Windsor. A well appointed hotel with excellent staff.

Great hotel, perfect location just opposite to Windsor castle.
Very good service, comfortable room.
Tast breakfast with wide selection (cold and hot buffet)
little bit higher price, but probably equal to location and quality.

I have been using trip advisor for a numbers of years as a reference when looking for places to stay and have been putting off writing reviews until now. The Mercure Windsor Castle Hotel was the catalyst to start my trip advisor reviews. Based on previous reviews I decided to stay here for 1 night. Check in was prompt and courteous but unfortunately that is where it ended. As a regular traveler to the UK and Europe I have stayed in numerous hotels. Staying in a 4star hotel you have certain expectations which the 4 star Mercure fails to provide. The bedroom was very disappointing. You do not expect a 4star hotel bedroom to be heated by an oil filled radiator. While the room was clean the decor needs a revamp. The bathroom was cold and the window with the peeling paint needs a once over. Breakfast the next morning was adequate. Maybe I was unlucky with my bedroom allocation but for £219 I expected a lot more. I have stayed in nicer 3 star hotels.

Room Tip: Avoid room 110

The staff here are very friendly and do their best. On the negative side, the bar takes for ever to be served, the rooms are a bit dated, the beds are too soft and it's too expensive.

Not their fault (the whole street was affected) but there was a power cut for 1.5 hours on the night I arrived. What was their fault is that no one thought to check that everything was working correctly afterwards, and so ... 7am the next day ... every person in the hotel had a cold shower - brilliant start to a working week!

If you are visiting Windsor, then this has location on it's side, but I would consider somewhere nearby with a good TripAdvisor rating and just get a cab or public transport in.

Dear RSP71,

Thank you for your recent review and positive feedback about the friendliness of the team. Please accept my apologies for the power cut which took place within Windsor town centre on Sunday night and the lack of hot water , the team did reset all of the systems including the boiler but unfortunately the power cut caused some failures internally with them that required a specialist engineer to attend site and repair which took place on the Monday morning. Please be assured the team did all they could to rectify this as quickly as they could for our customers.
I hope we can welcome you back to Windsor in the future.

Kind Regards,
David Hayden
General Manager
