The Castle Hotel Windsor | Deluxe Queen bedroom with Windsor Castle view


Make sure your time in Windsor is really well spent with a stay at The Castle Hotel Windsor – voted one of the top hotels in Windsor by TripAdvisor traveller feedback.  This historic, boutique hotel sits magnificently in the town centre, opposite Windsor Guildhall and just a few minutes’ walk from Windsor Castle.  The history of the hotel and unique touches permeate every corner, yet the bedrooms are stylishly decorated with all the comforts you would expect to make you feel totally at home whether you stay to experience Windsor or are visiting on business. Comfy beds, 100% natural toiletries from 100 Acres, Nespresso machines for freshly brewed coffee in the morning and the finest Egyptian cotton bedsheets, enjoy a restful night’s sleep.

A stay at The Castle Hotel would not be complete without a meal in Leaf Restaurant. It offers creative cuisine showcasing the finest locally sourced produce with meals that nourish both the mind, body and the soul. Enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.  Year round, you will also find our beautiful garden terrace open – a little oasis just a couple of steps from the main High Street.  With heaters, blankets and hot water bottles to keep you snug in the winter and a sun trap in the warmer months, it is a really popular spot for a cocktail or catch-up over coffee. Pets are also welcome in the garden.

The Castle Hotel history

The Castle Hotel began life in 1528 as The Mermaid Inn – humbly brewing beer and cider for the people of Windsor. 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 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.  

It is the small details that matter and, at The Castle Hotel our team will make your welcome very warm, deliver authentic hospitality, advise you on the best places to see and go and bid you a fond farewell when you leave.

Part of the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead Concierge Scheme.
