Birthday Treat
Old world upmarket charm, welcome staff open door and guide you to where you require service. Reception staff member let the establishment down by being non-commital about check-in, did not make eye contact and didn’t remember us when we returned shortly after to collect room key, after sitting in front of her for 40 minutes. Smell of strong chemical in passageway leading to our room. Strong chemical cleaning smell in bathroom which created a headache. Very noisy room facing on Bourke Street directly above where the trams stopped and started plus two drinking establishments across the road with sound from customers being heard in room. Breakfast service staff were friendly and promptly attended pleasantly to guests. Service staff going about there business generally smiled with a greeting. I love the staircase and the architectural features of the hotel. The Hotel is very convenient to public transport and walkable to gardens, museum, restaurants and retail. Very slow check-out process.

Owners neglect
The Hotel Windsor is iconic to Melbourne. It is a shame that the current owners have not kept a high standard with room decor and overall interior upkeep of the property. It felt a little tired & neglected. Looking upwards from the glorious staircase to see exposed lath timber where the ceiling plaster had fallen away was not ideal. This property is worthy of love & respect
