OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

In between two beautiful historic towns; Windsor and Eton, the hotel is elegantly positioned overlooking the river Thames. There are great restaurants, cafes and traditional pubs nearby; every cuisine is catered for in this tourist-friendly area. If you like walking, you've got The Brocas and Windsor Great Park close by. Arguably the most famous school in the country - Eton College, where royalty and notable people have attended for centuries - is close to the hotel, as is Windsor Castle.

By car: around 1 hour from London, 1 hour 30 minutes from Bristol and 4 hours from Manchester. Parking costs £15 per day.

By train: Windsor's two stations are a five-minute walk away. Book trains to Windsor.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The tan and dark brown entrance to the hotel is a mix of marble-tiled flooring, wooden skirting boards and door surrounds, with chocolate-coloured leather upholstered chairs. It sets the scene for the rest of the hotel which is a mix of country chic (think antlers on the walls), duck egg blue walls and gilded mirrors.

THE FACILITIES

The hotel staff are ready and willing to advise where to go and book trips if desired. The hotel is perfect for someone who likes to keep fit in the fully equipped gym, followed by a dip in the hot tub and rounded off with an indulgent massage. The waiting staff are friendly and attentive.

BED AND BATH

Whilst there is some individuality, the rooms have a cohesive theme. The bedrooms which have wood-panelled walls feel fitting for the historic building, whereas you may feel the use of dark colours and furniture in the décor of the other rooms slightly oppressive. That said, the furniture is functional, comfortable and does look smart.

Room types: Traditional Room, Superior Room, Executive Room, Club Room, Grand Room, Feature Room, Signature Room, Apartment

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with toiletries, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities, TV, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

Whilst the food isn't ground-breaking in culinary creation, there is a selection of small plates which is ideal for a light bite, such as Scottish smoked salmon with capers and shallots. Served alongside was gluten-free buttered brown bread, handy for the coeliac in our party. The warming chicken curry tasted authentic and whilst it was too cold to eat outside we had hot chocolates on the terrace, watching the lights from the apartments opposite reflecting off the river.

The Brasserie: bar and terrace restuarant. Upscale dining, creative cuisine. All-day menu, open daily.
