We stayed in a 'traditional room' and I was very pleased with this place especially the service they provided at the front counter as we got off the bus. A fresh newspaper daily out side your door. The only thing that got me was the foxtal. It only included the sports channels and a few of the other better channels had 'missing signal'

Dear Ms W…Natalie,

Thank you for your positive review.

The hotel provides a number of cable television channels so I apologise if some were missing when you stayed.

Otherwise my thanks again for your kind words.

Yours sincerely,

You don't stay at the Windsor for modern, edgy and crisp...it is a Hotel that speaks to a bygone era and its sense of history is tangible. I loved the wide long hallways, the beautiful staircase and the hint of the luxury that once was. The decor now seems a little tired, but the room was very spacious and the very high ceilings add to the feeling of space and light. The bathroom was classy and the breakfast superb (I ordered room service french toast which was great). The heating is a stand-alone wall unit which I found a bit fiddly to operate, but this would not be uncommon in a building this age. The television reception was poor in my room on the first floor. There is a sense of grandness here, of class, even if it may be past its heyday. I've stayed here several times over the years and it changes little between visits. The service is always exceptional. I'd love to see this hotel realise its full potential with a tasteful make-over as it could be one of the truly great hotels of Melbourne. They just don't make them like this any more!

Thank-you Hotel Windsor for your amazing hospitality. We found the entire experience to be exceptional. We loved the room, which was homely and spacious. It was convenient, and enjoyable, to have a pre-theatre dinner followed by a short walk to the Princess Theatre. Service overall was really good.

We were lucky to have an excellent package and on arrival we were upgraded so that was a bonus. The staff were attentive and very helpful at all times. Even though we had a package deal it made no difference. The hotel is quite old but that is part of the mystique. It was warm, comfortable and an overall great experience. The breakfast was also very nice and reasonably priced. Looking forward to a return trip, especially when going to another musical.

I loved staying at The Windsor. The staff and service were wonderful. The room tended to be a little cool at times as I traveled in winter. There is a heater in the room, however it takes time to warm the room and sometimes turned off spontaneously. There are instructions though. Overall , I loved my stay and the staff are wonderful.
