  • Family with children

    I liked the room and how it was dressed! the staff were very friendly

    the price for what we got was rediculous! the rooms didnt get supplied well with refreshments had to ring through and ask for more!

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The majority of the Staff are professional and genuinely helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were extremely clean and a good breakfast was served. The view over the river from the dining room is special. The location is also very convenient to both Windsor and Eton.

    A couple of the Staff were clearly not helpful, the barman in the evening and a waitress at breakfast time. However, the Hotel Management did deal with the situation satisfactorily. The parking is limited, although you can park at the nearby railway station.

  • Single

    It was an excellent location and very comfortable

    The single room was very small and the furniture could have been more efficient in the room.

  • Couple
    4.6

    We liked the location of the hotel - good for shops and restuarants and by the river. The welcome basket of fruit was a nice touch for our anniversary.

    This hotel is very tired and rooms could do with a facelift. Our room was noisy and had damp patches over the ceiling which made it smell The tiles in bathroom were dirty in places as was the bath and some tiles were cracked. Not somewhere I wanted to spend a lot of time! The room was generally below standard of what we would expect for a 4 star hotel. All in all a disappointing experience...would not recommend it for a romantic getaway!

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    My husband and I stayed in a room over the archway and it was amazing.The slopes on the floor and the way the room was lit showing the open beams etc all added to the character.

    No. There was nothing we did not lilke.

  • Single
    4.2

    The location is beautiful and there are plenty good restaurants and pubs nearby

    The staff was uninterested, they made me wait for my room (which was bookend in advance) for more than an hour. The room was small and not very tidy, the matress on the bed was not good. Not at all what you expect of a four star hotel! Far too expensive for what you get!

  • Family with children
    9.6

    The staff were very friendly and professional. The room was beautiful and well equiped -Loved the iron in the wardrobe. having a good hairdryer in the bedroom was great!

    On the evening we stayed, there was a fair amount of noise into the early hours. As we were at the front of the hotel it was quite loud! Not much you can do as the location of your hotel is very central which in itself for most things is great! OK I should have joined the party too! We booked a twin room but were allocated a double. A complimentary breakfast made up for the error thank you.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    The location is excellent. This hotel is within a short walk from the Windsor-Eton Riverside Station, and within the downtown are of Windsor. Easy access to shopping, restaurants, and the shuttle bus to Legoland.

    They gave us a room with no air conditioning. The room was unusually warm (probably because it was on top of the kitchen?). The temperature outside was about 50 degrees fahrenheit and inside the room it was 80 degrees fahrenheit. We had to insist in getting moved to another room. In the end they did but the air conditioning was barely working in the other room. When would hotels stop giving their worst rooms to people that book online?

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The location was lovely. I had trouble with the stairs and there was no lift. The staff were very helpful but breakfast was dissappointing and small details in what was otherwise a delightful room - tao top broken and handles on chest of drawers missing - loose head board on bed - noisy everytime you turned over- but all in all a well located spot for exploring the town-close to theatre and castle.

    No lift

  • Couple
    10.0

    The most of what i like it was a staff

    Yes i didn't like one thing when i arrive they told me the breakfast is included with my package,but when i was living hotel they charged me extra money for breakfast it wasn't nice but i couldn't do anything.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very charming hotel because of the british style. Excellent location, on the river and beautiful view both from our room and the breakfast room, and very close to the heart of Windsor. We had a very small room but very cosy, with a small terrace, and all this on the riverside, it felt like a suite. Then entrance and reception felt slightly uncosy(could be more striking) in comparison to the rest of the hotel.

    They only thing we experienced immediately is ofcourse that, due to the fact that the building is small and located in the heart of Windsor, there were many small corrodors and stairs up & down to our room, quite frustrating with luggage. Also a real pitty that we could not have a breakfast table by the window to enjoy the beautiful view, as the tables were all free but still dirty from previous breakfast guest, such a shame.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Great location to see Windsor/Eton and also for the train into the city. Beds were comfy, bathroom was all we would expect and the staff were very friendly. All normal conveniences at hand, my wife really enjoyed the spa (hotel guests get a discount). We mostly ate out, but the food that we had in the hotel was good.

    The hotel has been converted from several different listed properties and as a result, it's internal layout is not ideal, but it has character.

  • Couple
    8.8

    I booked this hotel for 3 nights through Booked.net as they offered a substantial discount on their standard room rate. The location was perfect (cental Windsor) as we were dining at the Fat Duck in Bray one evening, which is only a sort taxi ride away. Windsor railway station is a 2 minute walk from the hotel, and central London is a 30 minute train journey away.

    Our roon was well equiped and tastefully decorated (espesially the bathroom - fantasic power shower!) and it suited our needs perfectly. We didn't use any of the hotel facilities (they have a spa etc) so I can't comment on those. If I had to fault anything it would be the limited beer selection in the hotel bar but this is typical of many hotel bars in my experience and there are some decent watering holes close by!

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The family room we booked was spacious and light.

    Some of the staff were grumpy and moaned about our children being noisy, but then other staff were very nice and helpful.

  • Single
    5.0

    The staff were very helpful and friendly

    The room I was in was small, the hall way carpet was dirty. The tv weas small and old. There were only 6 tv channels of which only 5 seem to work and 2 of these were flickering to much to watch
