I love the Windsor Hotel. You are greeted on arrival by a door man who will help with the luggage. A bell boy took my bags up to my room and showed me how to work the lights (which were excellent and easy to use) and ensured everything was fine. The lights were really excellent. I like bright lights for reading and dimmer lights for watching TV or talking to someone and they catered for both. I could open the windows of my room. The air conditioning was top class. My room was huge and very comfortable. There was a small fridge and a kettle. I can only afford to stay when there is some sort of sale on as it is expensive but well worth it.

Room Tip: I have stayed here twice and each time had an excellent room with wonderful lighting, both natural a...

Great Hotel. The staff were all friendly and attentive. The breakfast buffet was superb However, needs an improvement on the food in Cricketer's bar. Overall, we had an awesome stay and surely will recommend to our friends and family.

I enjoyed my stay at the Windsor very much and l will return. The staff were generous, courteous and very professional. The service was amazing. The location of the hotel was extremely convenient. My highlight was the decor in the dinning room. I am a very happy and satisfied customer.

This is my second visit to the Windsor. The first was 6 years ago and I was still in the records. The hotel is from a period in Australia's history when good service and your experience was the main considerations of an upper class hotel. The staff are courteous and dressed to suit the surrounding opulence and decor of this old hotel. If you are used to modern hotels this may not be for you but for location and a feel good experience I'll stay here every time. Well done all

Good location, and excellent service, until I received bill (by email) and realised that I had been charged an excessive credit card (Amex) fee, which I would have avoided if it had been explained at Registration.

Dear Mr J…Grahame

We appreciate your kind words and honest feedback.

Sincere apologies for any confusion. We are committed to mentioning this on arrival if presented with an Amex card– we always do on departure, unless of course a guest departs without coming to the desk.

Perhaps we were not clear when you arrived. We shall address.

Fees for other credit cards are invariably lower reflective of our costs.

If I can be of any further assistance here please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hoping that we may look forward to welcoming you both back soon. The pleasure of your company will be ours once more.

With thanks,

Yours sincerely,

David
