Fabulous 8.8 From 2,173 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great old school splendour if that’s what you want
The location and grand facade and entrance make up for the lack of some modern amenities which would be nice (maybe it’s within keeping with their old style) Rooms are large and spacious, but I prefer a stand alone shower. If you’re into old school glamour this hotel would rate extremely highly. We never ate at the hotel as there are so many great and reasonable places to eat in close proximity. Were disappointed not to get a room upgrade or later checkout even as a Gold member. There are many great modern hotels in Melbourne which we would probably try before returning to the Windsor

Luxury Hotel in central Melbourne
We were in Melbourne for three days for a conference and wanted a large room so my wife could work during the day. The Junior Suite was perfect for our needs at a very good price especially with sparkling wine on arrival. We did not get a chance to use the discount on food and drink but the restaurant options looked interesting. Valet parking is expensive at $55/day but other car parks in this part of Melbourne are even worse without allowing multiple entry. All the staff were very friendly and I would strongly recommend this hotel .

Too many years between High Tea's
It was Valentines Day and my wife had memories of her father and her having High Tea when she was 10 yrs old. A mere 45 years ago so it was a great day and event for both reasons . We love the décor, old world charm and as many said " they don't make them like that anymore "

Infested with mice
This was our third stay at the beautiful hotel, but this time we had the company of mice/rats in the room. The staff seemed to know about the problem, and said they couldn’t do much. We were offered another room on a different level but again room seemed to have mice living in it.

We had an amazing time. The staff were very friendly and being my partner’s birthday we received a complimentary bottle of bubbles on arrival, hand written card and complimentary drinks at dinner, plus a petit four with a candle. We felt very special and it made our time very memorable. Loved the hotel and its history.
