The wonderful team at The Windsor Hotel made a beautiful, but understated fuss of my daughter last week on her 17th birthday. As a special 'mother and daughter' treat on our trip to Melbourne, this will always be a stand out memory for us both. Absolutely every last detail was exquisite. This is the ultimate in High Teas. Don't bother going anywhere else as there is no chance that any other venue could even begin to come up to the standard of The Windsor in terms of ambience, service, quality and taste. My thanks to everyone at The Windsor for an amazing dining experience.

The afternoon tea here is just splendid! I have been several times and each time I am more impressed than the last time! The scones are always fabulous and the Champagne is top quality. I recommend taking some time to find a good place to park as we were slugged $70 in a Wilson car parking as I just went in one of the close ones as we didn't have time to walk far or catch the train.

High Tea at the Melbourne Windsor is one of those things you should do at least once in your life. The afternoon tea consists of specially selected teas and delicate sandwiches, along with some delicious cakes. Things start off with a glass of bubbly. Afternoon tea is a bit of an extravagance, but it is not all that expensive for an experience you can remember for the rest of your life..

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!
