University of Bath Alumni reunion.

We have had the privilege of having University of Bath Alumni stay with us at the Windsor Guest House for the 30 year reunion. This was particularly exciting as one of our Duty Manager’s is currently studying at the University of Bath and just so happens to be doing the exact same course (Modern Languages and European Studies) as all of them did!

It has been wonderful to hear all about their time at the University, but also how much Bath has changed in the last 30 years.

The Windsor Guest House is also constantly changing to make itself the perfect place to stay by adding new delicious food options to our wonderful A La Carte menu for breakfasts and amping up our reception area so you can have a pre-dinner drink from our fully stocked bar.

So make sure you stay with us when you visit Bath and we will do everything we can to make sure you have a fantastic experience!

If you need further proof, just take a look at some of our TripAdvisor reviews!

A stunning guest house. The staff are exceptional. The room is beautifully appointed. Be prepared to climb some stairs if your on the top floor. But worth the climb. In a very central location. Easy walk to restaurants and local shops. Bath is a wonderful location. Highly recommended.

We booked at very short notice, we were a walk-in. Victoria was charming, helpful and offered the delightful basement room with private garden at a very good rate. The furnishings are tasteful, the bathroom with walk-in shower was excellent, and the breakfast choices were great. The Windsor experience was top notch, and great value….we will come again!

 

We look forward to welcoming you at the Windsor Guest House!

Refurbishment Update 27th Feb 2014

As part of the ongoing refurbishment of the public ares at The Windsor, we are currently redecorating our Dining and Reception areas as a way of improving  guest experience. A new informal Bar area now sits alongside the Reception area, with a small but well thought list of wines, beers and popular spirits and mixers allows you to sit down and relax with a drink on arrival or during the evening. A small selection of snacks is also available, with our sharing platters proving to be very popular. Redecoration of the Reception room will begin next week  with minimal disruption.

News from the kitchen

We continue to source the very best of local produce to heighten the guest experience during breakfast. To this end we now serve the very best Organic unhomogenised Milk from local Ivy Farm. These very lucky, spoilt cows graze on clover and grass throughout the year and love the milking process. This wonderful cream coloured milk is how milk used to be and is utterly delicious. Ivy Farms’ milk goes to all the best establishments, being sold and served at Harrods, Fortnum and Mason and Selfridges.
