    The staff were extremely helpful and the room was pure luxury. Was definitely pleased, considering we'd paid more to stay in a hotel that was nowhere near the standard of the Windsor; excellent value and look forward to staying there again. We also received a free upgrade to the superior room. Lovely!

    Location is great, all staff I encountered were pleasant and helpful and attentive...it is just a lovely old hotel to stay in.

    Perhaps the cost of a cup of coffee could be looked at.....you can walk out the door and get a better cup for a lot less.

    While the hotel is a bit tired, it is clean, has the necessary facilities and is well located in the city.

    The staff were amazing. It felt like they went the extra mile to make our visit as comfortable and gave heaps of great advice on how to get to nice places and what to expect. All in all the visit was great and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Melbourne.

    The Door Man!! I came into the hotel early in the morning after flying for 26 hours, so tired, smelly and disheveled. The airline sent my luggage to Sidney, so all I had were the clothes on my back. The Door Man made me feel like I was the most important person to walk into the hotel that day. Can't thank him enough for his kindness. Elizabeth

    Location, consistency, good old fashioned relaxed professional service - no hype, no loud music, spacious and relaxed - comfortable

    shower didn't work properly - a delux room, I expect things to be working properly!

    The whole experience of the hotel is wonderful. This was our fourth trip staying at the Hotel Windsor and each trip has been wonderful

    The character and history of the hotel is what initiated our choice. The suites were large and the staff were friendly and very helpful. We requested an upgrade before leaving via email to the hotel and this was accomodated. I believe the hotel would benefit greatly by using the history of the hotel and it's occupants over the years by adding perhaps more historical pictures and names of the persons having stayed, in the rooms. We eventually found some references tucked away at one end of the ground floor.

    The hotel felt a little tired and I believe there were certainly opportunities to improve in areas, i.e. It wouldn't be difficult to provide room safes to give visitors (especially overseas) the ability to lock away valuables such as passports and cameras.

    I have stayed at the Windsor many times and will again. I find its location excellent. Thought the carpet throughout the hotel needs updating, also thought the doormans uniform needed cleaning and perhaps replacing though he was very friendly.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The service of the staff was excellent in particular the doorman.

    Room was a little small and a bit basic

  • Family with children
    7.8

    It was very comfortable with enough room to open both our suitcases without having to move cases during our visit

    I thought there could have been some flowers on the table on our level as the vase on the table outside the lift gave a very stark and non-welcoming look.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Great staff/service.

    Older hotel While quaint, at price can't compete with services provided by other more modern hotels. Weight room on 4th floor was flooded during entire stay.
