What is the appearance of the hotel? Check the entrance and reception
It was a little hard to find the hotel, because it was built going to the back. There was a sign of a steak house, so I thought it was a mistake at first. There were many people lined up in front of the stake house, and a lot of them were guests staying at the hotel. The appearance of the hotel is simple and not very British.
The staff at the front desk was very friendly and carried my suitcases for me.

What is the Twin Bed Room like?

The room was spacious and a very comfortable space.
There was only a chair for one, which was a little inconvenient.
The chair and the table was by the window.
There was a desk and a TV across the bed. A hairdryer was in the drawer.
The closet and counter was cute.
The bed and pillows were fluffy and very comfortable. The bed was wide enough, I slept well without having to worry about noise coming from outside.
There was no balcony, and only a window that could be opened a couple of inches.
The room was on the first floor, so the view was not great, but it was nice to be able to get fresh air into the room. It felt nice to turn the air conditioner off and leave the window open when going to bed.
There was a shower without a curtain or a door, which was a little surprising.
The water pressure was just right, but water splashed on the toilet. It was a little inconvenient.
I was curious about the red string hanging next to the toilet and pulled it, and was surprised when it was an emergency alarm and staff came running over.
The floor became wet, but when I opened the door and let the air conditioner in, everything dried quickly.
Amenities were soap, bath gel, shampoo, shower cap, and shampoo and bath gel. The bottles were small. I stayed for two nights, but the soap was not exchanged, so I asked the front desk to bring some new bottles. Towels and bathrobes were high quality, which was very nice.
Closet and safe
The closet was spacious.
There were about 10 hangers inside, so it was convenient. There were expensive looking slippers inside as well.
There was a safe in the closet.
Mini bar and cafe
At the cafe corner, there was instant coffee, sugar, fresh milk, hot chocolate, teabag tea (English breakfast), three Nespresso, and two Walkers shortbreads.
There was nothing in the fridge.
Restaurants in the hotel
There is a restaurant called “Caleys,” but I did not eat there this time.
There is also a lounge bar serving beer and wine. They also served food as well.

Environment around the hotel
It was nice having a lot of shopping malls near the station. In particular, I liked the supermarket called Weight Rose, and went there every day. The hotel itself is in front of the Windsor Castle and is in a corner lined with shops, so it is very convenient. Casskidson and Windsor souvenir shops are everywhere and are easily accessible. Opposite is the Windsor Museum, where you can learn about Windsor history for £2. The River Thames flows nearby and you can walk to Eaton School as well.

Staff and customer base
The hotel staff were very pleasant. The person at the reception told me directions around the area, and the man who carried my suitcase kindly explained to me about the room and how to use the shower.
There were elderly couples, families with children and so on. Most of the people were staying to see Windsor Castle, and there were many overseas customers and people who came from other parts of England.
It was about 30 minutes by taxi from the airport. The fixed amount is £40. Walk from the nearest station and you can get to Windsor Castle, so access is very good. The city was safe, but I sometimes saw homeless people sitting at the bus stop.
The hotel is located in a corner with souvenir shops and shops related to Windsor Castle. Restaurants and McDonalds are also nearby. Above all, Windsor Castle was visible from the entrance of the hotel.
I had a nice stay at “McDonald Windsor Hotel.” Access was the best above all. It was difficult to find twin rooms around here, and access were not taken into account so much, but when I actually arrived, I was happy to see Windsor Castle and the Thames river nearby. This hotel was the first hotel that I stayed at in England, so I got up early in the morning due to jet lag and took a walk nearby. There were many beautiful parks and it was nice to breath in the fresh air. I was very satisfied with my stay.
