I know you are renovating your hotel but we still got the room with the shower curtain. We will still come again but noticed on our way around that some of the other hotels were advertising cheeper accommodation

In room 211 the Bathroom Extractor fan was exceptionally noisy and Bathroom door needs attention. There were far more positives however, one of them being when our Luggage was carried in I asked if there was a Fridge in the room and the gent in a flash said 'I will bring you one' and he did. So nice!

We had a great experience and enjoyed the stay as a family. The staff were very friendly and the Chef made special croissants for our daughter. We loved our stay! Well done to the team, we will be back! The Branfords

We came with no reservations. Friendly welcome. Good and attentive service. Small room with no balcony but facing the sea. The whole venue including our room needs some renovation. Price for one night not quite appropriate.

I was really excited to see the location of the hotel on the sea front and looked forward to the view from my room, however I was extremely disappointed to find my room at the back of the hotel overlooking the car park and building materials. I tried to change my room to a sea view room but was told...

Praise for everything: hotel on the promenade overlooking Hermanus' beautiful coastline and mountains, with the old city centre just round the corner. Attentive staff, good breakfast, pleasant garden courtyard, spacious rooms and bathrooms (I had sea-facing with balcony). Charming and unique because of its well-maintained 1940s (?) style and furnishing. This is a place with a history that someone has...

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and could not have wished for better service, location and sea view. The Windsor was an excellent choice. So close to restaurant, shops etc., we were able to walk to most places in the village. Staff ever helpful and very pleasant. We will definitely be back!!
