A 3 or 4 star hotel with 1-2 star service. We booked the hotel's car service, 5starwindso, through the concierge via internet to pick us up at the port in Southampton. The driver was too lazy to come into the terminal exit like all the other drivers and instead called and yelled at us on his cell phone. His English... More

The room was fantastic and every thing you would want was included, the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The shopping area in Windsor is great with lots... More

If you are planning a visit to Windsor Castle and staying over night this hotel is perfectly located! For our last night in England we wanted something near Heathrow and this was perfect. 20 minute drive to the airport in the morning and right across the street from the castle. The staff was very friendly! The concierge could not have... More

But ... - the price of the car park has increased over the last few years and at £30 per night is a rip off - the... More

Location of this hotel is brilliant right next to the castle. When we arrived our room wasn't ready which was a pain. We had to wait, but was giving free hot drinks. Breakfast in bed for a extra tenner is worth it. Rooms are lovely and beds are comfy.

We had an evening meal and breakfast at the hotel and the food was excellent. Our room was very contemporary, quiet, and was immaculate.... More

I stayed for two nights for a business conference. The rooms are very well appointed with very comfy beds. There is a good selection of toiletries and my double room included bathrobes and slippers.
