So looking forward to spending the night at The Hotel Windsor after having spent many a beautiful time at the restaurant for High tea.
Concierge wonderful classical old world hotel couldn't fault,a wonderful entrance to the hotel.
Reception staff unfriendly very abrubt and completely uninviting.
Traditional room very tired,very small and looked every bit of its age ,why is there only 1 lounge chair in the room? (I did ask for a paid upgrade but apparently not available)
Breakfast was also very dissappointing.At 9.30am I had to ask for more stewed rhubarb which took forever,a refill of coffee which I asked for twice,smoked salmon there was hardly any there.it looked like they really didn't want to top it up due to the time.No pastries until about 10.15am then it was filled up.All in all a very dissappointing breakfast after many wonderful High teas.Staff seemed like it was all just a bit of an effort,hence will not be returning.
After an amazing few weeks of travelling with 5 star service at places such as the new Lancemore groups property The Alamanda in Palm Cove & Lakehouse in Daylesford we were looking forward to a beautiful night in our own city at the The Hotel Windsor but were sadly sadly dissappoined.
