The Beautiful Windsor! I treat myself once a year to a few days at this 'Grand Dame' of hotels. If you looking for sleek and modern, this place is not for you and, frankly, why I love it. Room 240 was large, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed and silence - all I want in a hotel room. I love the high ceilings and historic feel to this lovely hotel. The staff are all delightful - 6 stars to the concierge who pointed out many local sights and shops - a legend! I will return again and again...

Grand hotel in good location, my room was inward however with an unappealing outlook. The hotel restaurant wasn't open on one of the nights I stayed. The TV set was plain old fashioned.
