Alma Lodge
Ranked #16 of 24 Windsor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2011

we stayed here aug 13th till 17th
we came to windsor for a visit to legoland and a few "easy" days away.
The owner Eric very kindly collected us from the train station and showed us around the B and B.
This place is spottlessly clean and breakfast was excellent and piping hot!
We had a family room with two seperate bedrooms with a connecting door ,double in one and bunks in the other.
The lovely scenery of windsor is right on its doorstep,a short ten minute stroll straight down alma rd brings you to the river and the french brothers boat tours,the windsor wheel and a lovely park are just at the end of the road too.
Eric was even kind enough to pack bread for the 4yr old in our group to feed the swans with !
If you take the first right from this B and B you can stroll into windsor centre and see the amazing castle ,we took a horse and carriage ride from outside it {where the red bus stops opps harte hotel} for £40 for a half hour ride thru into the"great walk" and into the park ,he leaves every half hour after 12 noon on a first come basis.
Eric was very accomodating even allowing us to print off vouchers for legoland and the Band B has free wi fi ,tea n coffe facilities and even a small fridge for your drinks.
Well done Alma lodge our stay was great as was your facilities and service.

We were in the lower floor which was like being stowed away somewhere. Furnishing was IKEA-like, air was hot, could not open the windows because of the road traffic, Heathrow airplanes were annoying too and parking was difficult for anything larger than a Smart. And they charged 90 GBP per night. The personel was very helpful though.

This is a nice B&B and we had the downstairs bedroom which is newly decorated and exquisitely clean.
I think that as the owners do not live on site there are some issues with arrivals and departures. We were told to phone ahead of arriving and when we did we received a rather stressed response and a slightly awkward atmosphere on arrival. We didn't know where to park as the whole road and surrounding roads are residents permits only or out of hours meters. The owner very kindly paid our metre for us and then we moved our car into the tiny car park around the back in the morning. Car keys are often requested to be left so that a general musical chairs scenario can take place all day to enable visitors in and out of sparse and cramped parking spaces.
Our night was a little sleepless as whoever was in the room above insisted on talking most of the night while a small child danced on the ceiling. Not exactly peaceful. Breakfast the next day was again awkward as all guests emerged about the same time and the owner was clearly and verbally not that pleased with this situation. My husband had a cooked breakfast which he enjoyed and I had cereal. I wasn't offered any other option although another table was offered yoghurt. We were allowed to park our car all day which was kind but I do feel that this B&B is a bit uncomfortable in its approach to its guests and you feel like you are intruding. However it was nice enough and I have no complaints about the style or comfort of the bedroom itself. The Alma Lodge is situated very close to the town centre and is extremely convenient for travellers.

I was in the lower ground floor front room. Very spacious and tastefully refurbished, with small but attractive ensuite, tv fridge and small dining space for two. There were (I think) two other bedrooms on this floor, with a smart galley style kitchen, making this a great self contained space for a large family or group of friends. Short walk to centre of town.

We stayed one night here and were looking for easy access in and out of Windsor and to be close to Heathrow. This B&B fit the criteria and although it was challenging to get in and out of, it had off street parking. The room appeared to have been recently renovated and bathroom was modern. It did lack soap and shampoo for the shower, but we've learned to bring these along. The breakfast was adequate, but didn't include any fruit or yogurt which is more our preference, and we ended up with the "Hot English Breakfast" that we didn't realize we had requested. It was also coated with ketchup that wasn't to our taste. The gentleman looking after the B&B was quite a character and did give us help with directions and his views on life, so we didn't have the heart to complain.

My husband and I stayed at the Alma Lodge for two nights in June, and we couldn't have made a better choice. Everything about the room and bath was what one would hope for: spacious, comfortable, immaculate. The updated room was sleek, but welcoming and cozy. The best part of the stay, however, was the hospitality we received from the host. Eric went out of his way to accomodate our early departure, even stocking our room refridgerator with great breakfast items. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We loved the location: close to downtown, London train, and most important, Heathrow Airport. Alma Lodge is in a suburban neighborhood, with urban convenience.

Room Tip: We were in the front room on the ground floor

The room was very clean and tidy . A hair dryer was provided, however the nearest socket was too far away so I could not use the mirror.
There is a very small car park at the rear so parking can be a bit tricky. You have to leave your car key in the room in case they need to move it.
Breakfast was a bit of a mix up. We went down for breakfast at 9.10am (it finished at 9.30) but were asked if we could return to our room as a table was not ready. We were told that he would knock on the door in a few minutes. We waited until 9.40am and decided that we should check. It was a good job that we did as we had been forgotten!. Breakfast was OK, fresh mushrooms and tomatoes would have been nice instead of being out of a tin. He also forgot to bring our toast and we had to remind him, by which time we had finished our cooked breakfast.
It was a busy weekend as the tattoo was on and it would seem that they were finding this difficult to cope.
