Dining at Leaf

Castle Hotel history

Castle Hotel began life in 1528 as The Mermaid Inn – humbly brewing beer and cider for the people of Windsor: then scarcely a town of 1,000 people. However, in the 1700s the innkeeper Richard Martin was awarded the first of the hotel’s eight Royal Warrants – to provide horses and carriages for the royal household – and the hotel grew with the population of Windsor to become one of the grandest hotels in town.

By the 19th century, Castle Hotel was unrivalled as the finest place to stay in Windsor and even the Duke of Wellington stepped in to dine after his victory over Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo.  As one of the most opulent buildings in Windsor, it is clear to see why the aristocracy has played such an important role in Castle Hotel’s history, from its eight Royal Warrants to its location in Windsor, renowned worldwide for its link to British royalty.

Featuring a refined take on contemporary design for your comfort, gaze out at spectacular views over historic Windsor. As our guest, you are entitled to parking and a sumptuous breakfast, subject to your reservation. Finally, when it’s time for a fond farewell, we hope you stay in touch and share with us what you loved most, so we can continue to provide only the best in service excellence.

  • 'Beekeeper for a Day' Experience

    Windsor has a new Queen of the Castle! She is a Queen Bee who has just taken up residence in a hive on the rooftop of the Castle Hotel Windsor on Windsor High Street.

    The new hive is the result of a partnership between the hotel and Oakdale Bees, an apiary based in natural meadows on the edge of Windsor Forest. The hive, which has one of the best views in Windsor, was located on the hotel's roof in July 2021. The hive of British honeybees supports the hotel’s strong sustainable agenda. As well as helping to save bees and protect the environment, the hotel is also hoping to produce some very exclusive honey for guests.

    Castle Hotel Windsor is offering its guests the chance to be a beekeeper for the day! Enjoy a beekeeping experience at Oakdale Bee’s apiary in Windsor and learn the art of beekeeping and hive inspection followed by a delicious lunch. 

    Prices for this experience start from £399 for two people including an overnight stay at Castle Hotel Windsor on a bed and breakfast basis and including dinner at the hotel’s new restaurant, Leaf. To book this package please contact the hotel directly on +44 1753 851 577.
