Windsor is a popular tourist destination but it's not known for decent, affordable accommodation, so we were particularly excited to discover this contemporary boutique B&B, on a peaceful residential street right in the heart of the town and well placed for the castle, river and all the other attractions the town has to offer. Situated in an elegant Victorian townhouse, there are five guest rooms, divided between the lower floor and the top floor plus a further suite in an annexe in the garden.
The rooms vary in size – there are 2 doubles, 2 family rooms plus the garden suite – but they are all spacious and beautifully furnished, with lots of little touches that you are more likely to get from a high-end hotel, for example good-sized, powerful showers, robes and posh toiletries, but with the added bonus of a warm welcome from the friendly owners, who are always on hand to make sure you have a comfortable stay. All the rooms have free wifi, Freeview TVs and DVD players, hairdryers, mini-fridges, radio alarm clocks, tea- and coffee-making facilities, complimentary mineral water and fresh milk, while breakfast is a self-service continental affair supplied from the mini fridge, which is stocked daily with fruit muffins and other goodies that you can either enjoy in your room or in the breakfast room. The owners also provide short term rental apartments in Windsor for stays of a week or more. All in all we couldn't think of too many better places to stay if you're spending time in Windsor – and certainly nowhere that offers such good value for money.
Double rooms £75 a night, including breakfast. Family rooms £110–£120 a night, again including breakfast.
Open all year.
Five guest rooms in total – two doubles, two family rooms and a suite.
