Fabulous dining area and great atmosphere. Lots of different desserts for buffet to choose and we were even too full to try everything (which was a good thing). Overall it was a good experience, but the desserts didn't taste amazing as I expected.

A wonderful and very indulgent experience that I am so glad to have the opportunity to enjoy with my husband!

The atmosphere was wonderful and the staff provided just the right amount of attention to add to the feel and ambiance of the occasion!

The food was divine and such a huge choice from finger sandwiches, scones to all manner of cakes, slices, crepes and for this month they had the most amazing chocolate fountain.

I actually couldn't not possibly have been able to sample all the food that was on offer!

This visit was a treat for my birthday and was all the more enjoyable by the mini birthday cake our waitress presented to our table, including a candle!

I would definitely recommend visiting the Windsor Hotel - it is such a beautiful building!

A very special afternoon made extra special by high tea at The Windsor. What an indulgence. If in Melbourne do yourself a favour and don't have lunch and do high tea. It's a tradition which is very special

This was a surprise for my wife's 60th birthday and she was doubly surprised when our 6-year old granddaughter and daughter-in-law were awaiting us. The elegance gave the 6-year old "lady" the chance to dress up and we thoroughly enjoyed the overall ambience and delicacies on offer. The staff were helpful and courteous and even surprised the 60-year old with a special birthday treat. A truly lovely experience and would certainly come again.
