Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stayed here for two nights recently whilst in Melbourne for the weekend. I chose The Hotel Windsor due to the location at the Parisian end of the city (and proximity to the MCG), and the great reviews. The hotel is excellent, we liked:
- 5 minutes walk to some of the best laneway hotspots (both cumulus and chinchin very close) on little collins st and flinders lane, and only 10 minutes to the Bourke St Mall
- Walking distance to the MCG and just above parliament station
- The staff were extremely helpful and friendly for our stay. Early check in was a breeze, we did upgrade to a King room for some extra space and a better view
- Gorgeous decor with historic elements shining through

It is an older style hotel though, so we found the queen room to be very small (more european hotel room size) so we upgraded to a larger room.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking Spring St, it has the best view.

Offered upgrade to King George V suite. Glad we took the offer. Fantastic accommodation. Hotel is located just on the edge of CBD, only a few blocks from the centre of city. Tram and train at the door.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.We did receive an upgrade which was totally unexpected and much appreciated.Even so I have no doubt that our experience would have been excellent regardless of the room provided.Staff at all levels were unfailingly friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

The Windsor is in a class of its own. It is sophisticated, private and the service is second to none. The staff at the hotel are courteous and keen to please. Our anniversary weekend could not have been better in any way and the only disappointment was having to leave at the end of our weekend. We would definitely recommend staying at the Windsor for a special occasion.

A magnificent experience in immaculately preserved high class surroundings. The friendly staff were well trained, very helpful and very efficient. Every requirement was taken care of, however it would have been nice to have had some biscuits supplied with our in room tea/coffee.
