I stayed at The Windsor for a recent academic conference. The staff at the hotel were warm and welcoming. They provided excellent service and great restaurant suggestions. The rooms were spacious and comfortable.

An excellent old hotel with great service and food. There were some issues. No hot water in the shower, so I used the bath. No complimentary slippers in room. No place to hang the bathrobe in the bathroom. Otherwise, an enjoyable stay.

AIr conditioning a real problem. Could only get room cooler by opening window. Need somewhere to have a quite cup of coffee. Should have slippers in room and guest should not have to ask for them. Breakfast staff very good.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
