“Magical. Fun. Casual. Classy.”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

As regular visitors to Windsor, we’ve stayed in a dozen local hotels, B&Bs, AirBnB rooms, and rental apartments. This is UNIQUE. Forget the usual “peek-a-boo view of Windsor Castle” … the view IS Windsor Castle. My teenage son was awestruck, “I’ve never seen anything like this … Mom, there’s a wooden scull on the ceiling! … with Indian lamps coming out of it … what is this style?!” (Oriental Fantasy?) I cannot wait to come back in the spring, when the Eton boys get their first experience of rowing — and capsizing — in the Thames — right off the front deck. (And where swans and ducks are performing their morning ablutions as I type this winter morn.)

LOTS of cookware, three comfy beds (one king, two queens -- also untried a single futon in the den/snug — all ensuite, two with showers), a separate washer and dryer, good WiFi, iron/board, modern kitchen — basically everything you need in a home away from home. Five eateries that I visit every time I’m here are all within three minutes’ walk: Cote Brasserie, Bel & Dragon, Gilbey’s, Golden Curry, and Zizzi’s. Easy walk for groceries: Budgens four minutes' walk or Waitrose (a flat 10-minute walk if you follow Goswell Road, turn left just under the railway bridge and take the elevator up). Especially fabulous for families with teens — who can wander down Eton High Street to Zero3 and stuff themselves on teen food or to the Flaming Cow about four doors away — or anyone who wants to be in the center of Windsor and Eton life, on the Thames, with good thick walls, excellent heating, and double-glazing. And (hold onto your hats) a private PARKING SPACE right outside.

You can tell we love this place: it's both a vacation home and an experience.

Thank you for such a thoughtful and detailed review! We are thrilled, especially since we have only recently begun listing on TripAdvisor/HolidayRentals, having used primarily a competitor in the past. Hopefully others will have a chance to enjoy this unique property as much as you did! All best wishes, Rafts Cottage - Eton, Windsor
