We stayed at Windsor Hotel for 4 nights. Overall good facilities, especially considering the pool and spa. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Duvets are quite small for double beds. Reception was kind and welcoming. The restaurant was the worst part. The service was poorly and very unprofessional. It felt staff were hiding most of the time. Our first dinner, considering that was only two tables occupied at the restaurant it took long time to have our orders taken, had to ask the staff for our second course as they seemed to have forgotten, Spoon Salad came without a spoon. Fries were forgotten. Tomato soup was cold. Two tickets were issued when we asked for the bill. The waiter answered a cellphone call while we were paying so we had to wait for the call to finish. That was on Friday, late night on 24/11/2013. On another occasion, asked for jam or butter for the croissant ordered and we were just ignored (Wednesday afternoon 29/11/23). When ordering room service, half of the dishes were just bland and poor. The pastries ordered are simply not good. Communication is a huge issue as most staff can't speak any English, which makes extremely difficult to make any request. Overall it feels like a good 3 stars hotel. Definitely not a five stars one. Which is a shame. This review was done by my partner and I as we felt that we should leave our feedback as through communication it seems difficult.

We spent 2 separate nights here in this hotel. Location is really out of town in an industrial area. Nothing else around it. 1st night service was good and we got a good spacious room. When we returned, the concierge helped us with our bags from the bus, but from the lobby to our room, our bags took more than 1 hour. After 3 calls and walking down to the lobby- twice, only then they took note that I was pushing the trolley myself to the lift to get my bags. This is really unacceptable, given the fact that our bags were left in the lobby for that entire duration without any supervision. Please do better!
