    We enjoyed our stay. Staff professional with assistance for car rental and local interests. A step back in historical charm.

    The standard room was dated and sinks had a bit of mildew. Checking in was nearly a disaster since my last name is followed by Jr. For some time we could not be found. The hotel is grand with briars staircases and a nice dining room where we had a delicious breakfast.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The Windsor is a unique older hotel which maintains the charm of it's old building while upgrading the essentials for a modern pleasant stay. Our room was extremely large with all the needed amenities. The staff was always very nice and helpful. There is a great bar on the first level that has an excellent happy hour. The location is superb with excellent options for dining, shopping and parks/historical sites nearby. We would definitely recommend the Windsor for anyone in Melbourne.

    The staircase and lobby were lovely. The room, especially the closet needed some dusting and wiping down. The staff was awesome. Great location

    If the Windsor is a five star hotel, the room and bathroom were disappointing. The bathroom particularly was showing it’s age, with a fixed shower (no handheld available) in a bathtub. Amenities were lacking that are standard in a five star hotel - no shaving kit, no toothbrushes, no slippers were provided, no sewing kit and no complimentary bottles of water. Checkout is 11.00am. We were not offered any VIP perks (although we are Gold members), our room looked onto a brick wall, there were strong chemical fumes from paint thinners and the parking is $55 per night. We returned late evening (around 11.00pm) to the hotel and found no doorman or concierge and only one receptionist on duty. The Windsor is an historic hotel but is showing its age. Altogether disappointing.

    Pretentious hotel

    Very pretentious hotel., but the rooms are small. The standard room looks out on an ugly courtyard. The room was clean, but not that comfortable. Valet parking is the only option and it cost $55 per night.
