I stayed here for two nights and the location is great, hotel interiors were great, hotel room was one of the best I stayed in, but I felt so let down by the staff. I will say everyone on reception was great, but the servers for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus the bar staff were simply not up to scratch....

Excellent accommodation lovely staff and ideal location. Highly recommended for work and pleasure. The venue is directly opposite the castle so for those wanting to feel the weight of our Monarchy you are practically sleeping with them.

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...
