Having looked all over for a hotel in Nice, I'm so glad I chose the Windsor as my stay was perfect from start to finish. We got the train into Nice and it is a simple walk to the hotel which takes about 15 minutes. It's in a nice area with a short walk to the beach and lots of restaurants nearby. This means that you're getting a good slice off the price just by being a short walk away from the beach.
The hotel itself has each room decorated in a unique style. Ours had different words painted all over the walls which was a really good feature. The bathroom was fantastic, a good size with a nice shower. As a young couple on a bit of a budget, we couldn't afford to buy drink from the hotel bar as anything in Nice is very expensive, approx 9 Euros for a beer so we bought wine and asked the hotel to store it in their fridge for us. Knowing that they would make no money out of us made no difference as they were happy to oblige. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, as it was extortionate, and we could get more choice from one of the beach front cafes for the same price with a nice view.
However, the garden is what makes this hotel. A beautiful haven in the middle of Nice, the chairs catch some sunshine and it's a perfect place to sip some wine before going out to eat. Highly recommended.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Yes, it's expensive, but it's in the Riviera, so so is everywhere else. However, there was nothing that they could have done better for us, and that was knowing that we weren't putting any extra money in their pockets. I'd definitely stay again
