Windsor Castle

Situated in the heart of the historic town of Windsor, The Castle Hotel offers an unrivalled location that immerses guests in the rich tapestry of Windsor’s history.

With its proximity to the iconic Windsor Castle and the charming attractions of the town, this hotel serves as an ideal base for exploring the cultural heritage and natural beauty of the area.

The Castle Hotel Windsor boasts a prime location just steps away from the renowned Windsor Castle. This proximity allows guests to easily explore the magnificent grounds and experience the grandeur of one of the oldest and largest inhabited castles in the world. Whether it’s witnessing the Changing of the Guard or delving into the captivating history of the State Apartments, the convenience of being within walking distance adds value to a stay at The Castle Hotel.

The façade is somewhat grand – there has been a hotel on this spot since 1525, and certain sections of the main building have been recognised and protected as Grade II listed. Consequently, the interior design of the hotel emphasises and celebrates its rich historical background. Enjoy the lovely common areas and admire the extensive collection of oil paintings, vintage maps, and majestic artworks that contribute to its impressive heritage.


Find a range of accommodations that provide a satisfactory stay. Rooms are well-appointed and provide the necessary amenities for a pleasant visit. Our Classic Room’s decor and furnishings were adequate while our bed was very comfy. We had a lovely rain shower and complimentary British-made organic toiletries from 100 Acres are standard. I would strongly suggest booking a room with a view.


Wine & dine

Leaf, the hotel’s restaurant is very pretty, and the service was impeccable. I thoroughly enjoyed my pan-seared sea trout with curly kale and spinach, pickled beetroot, micro pea shoots and bearnaise sauce while my partner decided to test how they deal with a classic; he had battered fish and chips, and said it was fantastic. The kitchen focuses on quality ingredients produced by suppliers based locally to Royal Windsor and Berkshire. Leaf had something for most dietary requirements and I really appreciated the very clearly defined gluten-free options.

Another highlight is the availability of an outdoor seating area during the day, allowing guests to bask in the sun, cocktail in hand. They have a great cocktail menu but I asked for something off-menu and it was perfect – compliments to the barman as well as all the staff at Leaf.

Quintessential afternoon tea is also available.
