My mum was visiting from Ireland and I thought it would be a lovely surprise to treat her to a couple of nights staying in the Windsor. All I can say is 'wow!'
From the moment that Russell the concierge opened the car door for my mum, and welcomed us, we felt that we were royalty!
It is an amazing up market hotel. You are treated as though you are someone special, without feeling that they are being pretentious.
It was fun to look out at the busy street at Parliment House. We saw beautiful bridal parties being photographed and had fun catching the free Melbourne city tram outside. We enjoyed a spectacular dinner in the grand ballroom and had fun reading about the Hotel's colourful visitors.We ordered breakfast in our room and were absolutely thrilled to have the breakfast table wheeled into our room.
This Hotel has a great atmosphere and I could practically feel the history as I walked through its corridors. I don't think I could ever stay anywhere but the Windsor again, when I visit the city.
