Great location. Huge rooms with high ceilings. Very quaint with friendly staff. No road or room noise. Breakfast was a bit slow but tasty. On the tram line and near many great restaurants and other attractions. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite, massive and not much more expensive.

I had a lovely sunny room on fourth floor with a comfortable bed. The staff were all very pleasant. The corridor areas of the hotel are looking a bit tired however and could do with refreshing. The air conditioning struggled a bit in the room, and the hot water , when it arrived, was scalding, requiring some care in adjusting the shower. The location is of course great, and the breakfast was good.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Apologies for the challenges with the shower temperature. Our Rooms Division Manager Nick McLennan shall be in touch through Trip Advisor in the hope of determining which room or suite was affected.

Glad to hear that service appears good and that breakfast was enjoyed.

A major rejuvenation is planned to start at the end of this year. Meanwhile we shall focus on getting everything else as it should be so that guests have memorable stays.

Hoping to welcome you back soon.

Yours faithfully,

David

This Hotel is great in many ways.
The location is perfect with trams (both free and pay) at the front door.
Parks and gardens are close by if you like to have a morning walk and smell the roses.
The variety of eateries within 200 metres range from pub tucker to fine dining.
The room we had was their lead in room, smallish but more than adequate for our three day stay.
Because it faced inwards it was very quiet with zero traffic noise.
It was a trip for my birthday but my wife got the goodies!! (a slight mix-up)
The Hotel sent a signed birthday card and a delicious piece of cake to our room. Very thoughtful indeed.
This Hotel has a charm that can't be built, but can only acquire with age.

Our first time at The Windsor to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. We were greeted with an upgrade to a deluxe room, complimentary champagne and a card with personalised well wishes from the staff! This hotel is an absolute must. The room was magnificent, the bed was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly & helpful. We loved the pillow menu. Our view of Parliament House from our window was gorgeous. Thank you to everyone who helped make our stay in the Melbourne CBD so wonderful. We will definitely be back!

There's not much to say about staying at the Windsor except that it should be on everyone's bucket list. Once you have made a reservation, there's nothing else to worry about. Their attention to detail is amazing and from the moment that I step out of the taxi I know that I can relax because they take care of everything from collecting my luggage through to loading my luggage back into a taxi when I leave.

Dear Mr Q…Michael,

What can we say apart from ‘thank you’.

The pleasure was ours and I do hope that we may have moved from perhaps being listed on your Bucket List to being your preferred Melbourne residence when in this great city.

Until next time, I remain,

H dining room was not as requested and had to be sent back - first time.

Great service, friendly staff and I appreciated the valet parking and room upgrade thank you. Make sure you get a room overlooking Parliament House and avoid the traditional rooms as they don't have views and bit pokey. I stayed on my own but staff made me feel so welcome and looked after.

Dear Sir / Madam,

Delighted to hear that you were made to feel so welcome.

Rooms and suites overlooking Spring Street certainly add a special touch and can be secured when making reservations with our Reservations Team when booking - or through the link above when booking Superior and Deluxe rooms. Meanwhile all Victorian and Windsor suites overlook Spring Street.

Until next time ,

Yours faithfully,

David
