Indagare Loves

  • Afternoon tea, a traditional Melbourne experience
  • The history of this grand heritage hotel, which predates many other hotels from the Victorian era
  • The impeccable, friendly and prompt service


The grande dame of Melbourne’s hotel scene is still going strong more than a century after opening its doors, thanks to impeccable white-glove service, beautiful (if a touch chintzy) rooms and an old-world, refined atmosphere that’s as far from minimal as you can get. Situated opposite Parliament House and the Treasury Gardens and a short stroll away from the theater district, the Windsor, designated as a heritage site, has hosted several prime ministers as well as entertainment industry luminaries from Lauren Bacall to Kylie Minogue. The famous Windsor afternoon teas, with butler-served British treats as scones with jam and cream, is not to be missed. A major restoration, which has been held up for several years, is expected to be completed by 2020.
