Excellent attention to needs and responsive staff. Few difficulties at check in but obviously a busy time. Renovation underway which is causing a bit of disruption but updating the beautiful decor and facilities nicely. Didn't try the spa at all. So close to the river and the castle, location can't be beaten.

This hotel is in a great location. We had a lovely, quiet room in the Annex. Windsor is busy and we appreciated the off-site parking near the station, which was very convenient. Staff helped us unload the car at the hotel entrance before directing us to the parking lot. Everyone was friendly and helpful; dinner in the dining room was... More

The staff were friendly and the hotel was busy. We used the conference facilities and was very good - close by Heathrow and useful meeting option instead of london. The rooms are slightly dated and a certain maze of corridors can make it hard to find your room. Food was good.

Great location with some rooms facing the river and some with the side views of Windsor castle. Friendly and helpful staff. There were fresh apples by the reception and plenty of tea, coffee and cookies in the room. Our favorite part was having tea by the fireplace in the lovely sitting room while playing family scrabble.

This hotel is in a great location, although not great if you come by car - there is a very small car-park which is best pre-booked.

I spent a week at this hotel for a business trip. I had an executive room with a beautiful view of the Thames River. It was absolutely perfect. The service was wonderful. Everyone was very nice and accommodating throughout my stay. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to check out the spa, but I will on my next visit!
