Great heritage hotel. For those who love heritage kind of stuff. Food was good and nice service. But the lift was broken, one was completely out of action, the other was slow and does not come up to level 2 to pick up passenger - so one way up and stairs back down! Room is small but well maintained. The bathroom is very old - would do well with a bit of upgrade.

Had a pleasant stay at the Hotel Windsor, we were especially satisfied with the concierge service and the pillow menu provided in rooms. (One suggestion would be to provide a few words to describe each pillow, as the names alone leave much to the imagination). The beds however were a bit stiff and rocked a lot from any movement - which could keep your bed partner awake 🥲Housekeeping kept our room tidy each day which was appreciated with fresh towels and bathroom restocked, and interactions with staff in the lobbies or hallways was pleasant. One fault, not of the hotels, is that we could often hear the protests across the road during the afternoon hours.I'd recommend the Hotel Windsor to anybody interested in it's history, however I withdraw points purely because the cost to stay doesn't seem to match with the room quality or hotel amenities. I could find a cheaper hotel closer to the city centre with similar services, and will probably do so for our next stay in the city.

We didn't order any service so couldn't tell, it's a beautiful hotel, and the list of guests posted by the elevators include - well - everyone famous. I loved it. Also, you can have a 1 hour shower and the hot water does not run out.

Overall, our experience was good at the hotel. We chose this place for our getting ready location for wedding. We booked the windsor suite and it had such stunning view. The whole premise was very much of an antique vibe with its antique furniture.

All the 5 star reviews seem to be of the tea, and nothing else. We checked in, the payment would not take our card. We were both on hold for forty minutes calling the bank to see what the issue was, the bank confirmed the card was fine and they finally tried it on their other payment device and it worked no problem. They did not apologize, told us to leave the hotel when my friend asked for an apology, threatened to call the police and did not refund us. Also charged our card for an extra 100 on top of what they said the price (including hold) was.

Beautiful old Hotel, fantastic service. Comfy bed and well appointed room. My only criticism is our room was next to the service elevator and we could hear it running all day / night.

From the time we arrived until we left we had the most fantastic experience. We stayed 2 nights in a lovely deluxe room to celebrate my 70th birthday. We enjoyed daily delicious breakfasts, 2 elegant High Teas & our daughter joined us for dinner at the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a bottle of wine and delectable chocolates plus a pretty card. I also received special birthday plate greetings at the High Tea & dinner. The service from everyone was excellent. Thank you for making my 70th so memorable. 🙂

Our family had a wonderful winter wedding at The Windsor. Those who stayed there loved it. The wedding in the Grand Ballroom was perfect. Great food, reasonably priced. The Cricketers Arms bar and breakfast room were terrific. Above all the service was professional, friendly and welcoming. Thanks so much.

I came to Melbourne for my Musical Goddess’ Hamer Hall anniversary concert. I decided to treat myself with a Sojourn at the Hotel Windsor as I had such a lovely experience last year. Second stay didn’t disappoint. Also had Afternoon Tea…Thank you for a lovely experience for my friend’s and my birthday celebration. The food was absolutely gorgeous and despite not breakfasting in readiness, we still struggled to consume it all. Our servers were wonderful! And I love that the Hotel Windsor gives the experience its proper name, not calling it High Tea, as many incorrectly do! I’m a historian so it really annoys me. I look forward to experiencing Afternoon Tea with you again!

Loved the heritage charm inside and out. The room we stayed in was very clean, nice modern bathroom with a lot of old character still left inside. We absolutely loved the old decor and furniture, even the carpet - it added to the fun of staying in this hotel! We had a great view of parliament as well. Comfortable bed and the room was very quiet, and what a fabulous location. We would definitely stay here again. Anyone who complains about the building being old and outdated obviously doesn't understand the history of this building. If you don't like old and outdated stay somewhere modern. History lovers will appreciate this place more!

Absolute luxury and old world charm, combined with friendly, personal and helpful service made this a stay to remember. The hotel itself is just beautiful, and well maintained. Excellent location, walking distance to everywhere, and free tram stops and railway station and buses at the doorstop. The room was huge, with very nice appointments, large comfy bed, and stylish, functional bathroom. Cricketers bar and restaurant are a must do, and the food, especially the breakfast is first class. Was doing a 5000km road trip on the Harley, and must say the staff and hotel were all "bike friendly"! The staff here also made the stay that extra bit special, with their genuine warmth and attentiveness. Will definitely be back.
