When it comes to choosing a hotel, most people prioritise location, which is what makes the Royal Adelaide Hotel in Windsor a great choice when visiting. It is based at walking distance to the centre of town or a five minute car drive. I find it great when a hotel has their own fully functioning restaurant including a bar, which the Royal Adelaide also wonderfully hosts. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming which is a trait I always respect and welcome when I stay at a hotel. Upon entering the restaurant, we were kindly seated and advised on what was recommended which I found quite lovely. I ordered the steak, and was pleasantly surprised with the flavour and cut. There is a great menu selection, which covers starters, mains and desserts. They also have a fully functioning bar which is open until late. The hotel itself is quite small and the rooms are also small, but cosy. What most stood out and made the bedroom unique was the bed frame. A gorgeous, mahogany detailed bed was the focal point in the room and everything else, from the decor and accessories warmly complimented it. The ensuite bathroom was modern and pleasant which is also a positive for me as I appreciate well structured and decorative interiors. The corridors are quite narrow, however, and there are different steps connecting the corridors so I personally wouldn’t take a pram with me if you are staying with young children as there are no lifts.
Breakfast was delicious and there is something for everyone, from difference juices and cereals to a full English breakfast. A vegetarian option is also available, which is great. For me, when it comes to reviewing hotels my first impression comes from the interior, then the staff, followed by the food and ultimately, location. Here is a break down of my experience:
• Interior 7/10 • Staff 9/10 • Food 8/10 • Location 9/10
