Open House Melbourne 2017 - Windsor Hotel @ Monday, August 28, 2017
Sunday 30th July
Slide shows are broken at the moment, so we'll be featuring a post per location we visited during Open House Melbourne.
Known for their afternoon tea 'The Hotel Windsor' was first called 'The Grand' (which there is one of in every city) and renamed after a visit and stay from the Duke of Windsor. It was designed by the same architecture as Melbourne Grammar and the Royal Arcade in 1883.
There used to be 300 rooms, just a small room with shared bathrooms on each floor but today there are 180 rooms, each with their own bathrooms, as we are used to. There are also 7 suite (apartments).

What an interesting brooch! H would hate it XD It's $120.
Tickets to high tea start from $70 for adults. That's the weekday one. The weekend is $90 but includes an all you can eat dessert buffet. You will die, but it'll be so worth it. Yes we've been, for our 5th anniversary. On par on price with the Langham, it is saved for special occasions or out of town visits. It's a try once thing, though jas says I say that about too many things. XD Oh and you can choose to sit in the ballroom (pictured) for authenticity, or the regular dinning room for better lighting and modern styling.
I didn't write about our experience sadly, as le beau asked me not too... as we (he) doesn't like sharing too much with the public. But it was very good, it's not my go-to place for high tea though, we've yet to find a favouriite after the Providence closed.
