The hotel is trying very hard to be a very good one, but needs a little TLC - Windows need painting, carpets need changing, a good clean wouldnt og amiss... The staff are wonderful - Really service minded and friendly. Prime location - Best in Windsor.

I stayed here for a night with my family. The front desk lady (Laura if not mistaken) so kind n helpfull even we check in at 22.00. We stayed behind the main building, has no stairs but clean and comfort room. The wifi was perfect. The location so so great. Lots of shops and cafe nearby. The central station only 5 minutes walk or less. The Castle only across the hotel. They have nice brekfast with the view of Windsor Castle

Have been to Windsor several times. This is the first time at this hotel. Expectations were high as it was opposite the castle. The room was disappointing as the shower so small the wash hand basin was in the room. The mattress was very soft. No view, which was expected as you paid extra but the noise level was higher due to functions taking place in the hotel. It was a fixed menu at night. I enjoyed the starter. Unfortunately they could not accommodate my needs as I am dairy free. My main meal consisted of chips, veg and what looked like the mince base for the shepherds pie that was on the menu. I couldn’t eat the meat as it was swimming in greasy water. I couldn’t have a pudding as they didn’t stock sorbet. I will not be staying at this hotel again. Also there is no parking for this hotel. Use overnight parking close by but it will cost £15 for one night.

My wife booked an overnight stay for my birthday and also theatre tickets at the Theatre Royal at Windsor.We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking Windsor Castle which is on the opposite side of the road. The room was well appointed with an excellent bathroom with a good shower.The Hypnis bed was comfortable and there was adequate wardrobe space with a safe.Wi Fi was good and it also had a large flat screen tv. We had dinner in the bistro the main meal was a whole sea bass which was cooked to perfection and the buffet breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food.The staff were very good and the location us first class for shopping or sight seeing.

Nice hotel although the room we have was ok and probably needs a bit more thought in the planning, only one bedside table as bed is very close to wall on one side, the bathroom was a little tatty, particularly around the bath. The location of the hotel is perfect and an excellent breakfast.

booked by my husband when we visited Lego land and very pleasantly surprised to find it was opposite the castle. Unfortunately there wasn't a car park but £6/24hours at the station was a bargain. Our spacious room of king bed plus sofa bed for the children was lovely and warm and situated off a row of shops BUT in a separate building a couple of minutes walk outside. The weather was dry when we stayed and cold so not a huge problem but I wouldn't have liked running to breakfast in the wet. The buffet breakfast was excellent but attention from the staff was lacking- with two boys keen on visiting the pastries we soon had a stack of plates which were not removed. Overlooking the castle with a full English breakfast was a terrific start to the day though. Will hopefully stay again

We arrived at The Harte & Garter hotel on Saturday and received not the warmest of welcomes (although I think the gentleman that greeted us might have been new so perhaps it was just nerves?). We got to our room and after paying nearly £190 for the "superior king room", we were disappointed to see that we had been given a room at the back end of the hotel, overlooking rubbish bins. The room was ok, a bit dark and slightly dated, but perfectly clean and the bathroom was obviously brand new with a roll top bath and wet-room style shower. However the room was not as described on the website and we had a terrible view. We went back down to reception and explained that we were not very happy with our room given what we paid and they immediately gave us a new room, with a gorgeous view of Windsor castle. The bedroom was exactly the same as the other, just without the brand new bathroom. I would therefore suggest that when you book, pay less and have a room with a lovely view because for some reason they are less expensive than the rooms with a new bathroom. Bed was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep but the only other issue was that the room was very hot. Not too much of a problem because the windows were big so we just left them open. Overall, not the best stay but I would stay again if I paid less for a different room. Location was amazing!

Perfectly sited for visiting the castle and the towns of Windsor and Eton, this is a slightly faded hotel but with a lot of charm. The dining room is elegant with huge windows and the dramatic backdrop of Windsor Castle just across the road. We had a Castle view room which had a comfortable bed and plenty of space. The dining room staff were particularly helpful and courteous and the breakfast buffet was fine. The only negatives I saw were the lack of a plate warmer and the quality of the marmalade. We did not try the evening meal because there are dozens of eateries nearby to suit all budgets. If we return to Windsor in future, we will stay here - having first made sure there is not a wedding reception and that a castle room is available

We had a palace view room and were very pleased! The room was spacious and comfortable. The buffet breakfast was delicious with a great selection. The location right across from Windsor Castle is the best in town. A tip: Pay extra for a palace view room. It is so worth it!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night as we had a 24 hour layover between Athens and Atlanta in the London area. I chose this hotel for its prime location as the closest lodgings to Windsor Castle and offering views directly to the castle. It is literally right across the street! The room was nice and spacious and the bathroom well-appointed and designed. The staff at the front desk was helpful, allowed us a free late check-out, and called us a taxi with plenty of time to spare for our flight. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant as there were so many choices to try along the main street less than a block from the hotel. This is more of a quaint hotel and not some sleek and modern. Just be aware as it fits in with its immediate surroundings nicely.
