The Harte & Garter Hotel & Spa

Windsor, Berkshire


Windsor Castle

Standard room


A luxurious Jacobean building in a prime location opposite historic Windsor Castle – breakfast and two-course dinner included

Set opposite the beautiful Windsor Castle, The Harte & Garter Hotel & Spa is one of the most historic hotels in the area and a combination of two 14th-century inns – The Garter Inn and The White Harte. The two were joined in the 19th century to form The Harte & Garter Hotel. A huge Jacobean building, it has an array of impressive original features and a perfectly balanced juxtaposition of ancient character and contemporary, elegant design.

The hotel is decorated in a classic style, sympathetic to the history of the building and its many original features. Expect high ceilings with beautiful cornicing, large windows, marble fireplaces and solid dark wood furnishings complemented by many contemporary and luxurious touches. The hotel has 98 bedrooms, some of which are in Goswell House – which has its own entrance and is located to the rear of the hotel, a short outside walk from hotel reception.

The building may be Jacobean but the facilities are thoroughly 21st century. The hotel has an excellent spa housed in the converted stables, offering an impressive range of treatments. It's a modern, stylish, state-of-the-art space designed solely for pampering. There's also a traditional British restaurant with an impressive wine list.

Good to know

Please note that the hydro pool and sauna are closed for maintenance. The steam room is available on a complimentary basis. The Rasul chamber, treatment rooms and retail areas are open as normal.

Please be aware that the hotel does not have an on-site car park. Public car parking is available nearby, and both Windsor train stations are within walking distance.

Please also note that the spa is closed on Mondays and that from Friday to Sunday, use of the spa is subject to a £15 fee per person, for up to two hours. Please make sure you pre-book any spa treatments directly to avoid disappointment (treatments are subject to availability).

Please note that guests can upgrade to a Castle View (£20) or Feature room (£50) for an additional charge paid direct to the hotel. Upgrades are subject to availability; please contact the hotel directly to discuss.
