We have just spent 3 nights at the Harte & Garter, we had a beautiful room with a 4 poster bed and access to the balcony where we could watch the changing of the guards.
The room was lovely and clean but unfortunately the balcony had many cigarette butts from previous visitors. As the hotel is not air conditioned and we were there during a warm spell, we found that one of two balcony windows did not open which would have helped with some air circulation. You could probably say that the housekeeping was a little lacking as one day the tea, coffee and milk were also not replenished.
The bathroom was beautiful, the only issue we had there was the shower head which had water output around the edges but nothing in the middle (quite strange).
We took advantage of some of the wonderful pubs around Windsor so did not use the Hotels dining facilities, but did try to use the bar on one day, but after waiting for so long for our drinks in a almost empty bar by a disinterested waiter we drank out as well.
We made use of the Stables spa and the ladies there were very friendly and professional but the environment is very tired and not very peaceful.
The reception staff were very helpful at all times and when our keycards were disabled a day before check out they sorted it out very quickly
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hart & Garter, it was central to everything we wanted to experience, we wanted the view of Windsor Castle so knew it was likely to be noisy, all in all we wanted a little bit of old world luxury and that is what we got (room 111)
