Cleverly badged as "Slough - Windsor". If you know both areas, you'll know that although they're just next to each other, they're very different! This hotel is actually in Slough but it’s not far to Windsor. We stayed here for 2 nights when my partner did the Women vs Cancer Ride the Night event from Windsor Racecourse. The hotel was a pleasant surprise, well decked out with plenty of facilities. We pre-booked and got a very good room rate, then we upgraded on check-in for £10 to get a business-class room, parking included and a few other things like free Wi-Fi (although this did not work on my iPhone) and free newspaper.
The room on the 5th floor was very well appointed, very large with plenty of space and a decent bathroom, everything in working order. Used the parking under the hotel, easy enough to get in and out using a token from Reception. Used the bar a couple of times and had breakfast on one of the days, although this was not included in the room rate and I thought at £16 each a little on the expensive side. Food at breakfast was your usual buffet fayre, but acceptable enough. We didn't use the hotel's restaurant. We used the hotel’s leisure venue for a dip in the pool & steam room / sauna on the final morning, this was fine if a little tired and looking in need of an update.
We walked into Slough on the afternoon of one of our days, this took about 30 minutes. Not much to see here apart from your usual high street shops and restaurants. We ate at Pizza Express which was fine. We went into Windsor on the last evening and ate at Prezzo, Windsor is a much nicer place :). We also went back there on the final day before coming home and had a wander around the castle. You can walk to the racecourse from his hotel, we did this to get to the event, but it did take about 50 minutes. The easier way is to simply drive the short distance.
Overall this hotel was a good place to stay for the Ride the Night event and we got a very good deal on the room through Trivago, around £60 per night. We think we’ll go back here when we book for next year.
