If you’re visiting Windsor, you’ll need a place to stay for touring Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park and the bustling River Thames. From traditional lodging to boutique-chic accommodation, Windsor has some terrific options that combine comfort and style. Here is our pick of the best B&Bs in Her Majesty’s weekend home, Windsor, England.

The Olde Bell

While the Olde Bell isn’t in Windsor, but rather the picturesque neighbouring town of Maidenhead, it’s well worth the short drive. It’s one of the oldest inns in the world, with parts of the establishment dating back to 1135. The property comprises five buildings and combines elegant interiors with lip-smacking food, earning its place at the top of this list.

Park Farm Bed and Breakfast

The family-run Park Farm Bed and Breakfast is just under 2mi (3km) from Windsor Castle and Eton College. The prime location means you’ll be a stone’s throw from the regal charm of the Changing the Guard, and within easy reach of the Long Walk’s beautiful deer. The combination of its old-fashioned farmhouse exterior and clean, stylish design inside makes for a lovely location to rest after a busy day of sightseeing.

The Old Farmhouse

This award-winning four-star retreat in a timber-framed farmhouse, set within elegant grounds, could be straight out of Walt Disney’s sketchbook. You’ll have the choice of just four rooms, making the Old Farmhouse a truly peaceful place to hang your hat after a long day of exploring. As it’s on the very outskirts of Windsor, you’ll be within easy reach of the tourist must-sees, but pleasantly detached from the town’s chatter come bedtime.

    A gorgeous 19th-century building, St Marys Cottage lives up to its saintly name with crisp, classy interiors and a hearty full English or continental breakfast to start your day. With all the modern conveniences that a traveller could dream of, there is one main bedroom and the option of a second, smaller room for family or friends – making St Marys more or less your own private retreat from the hustle and bustle of regal Windsor.

    If you’re wanting a taste of traditional England, stay a night or two in a proper British pub. The George is Windsor and Eton Brewery’s flagship pub and shows off Georgian history at its finest – with a frothy pint on the side. There are comfy rooms upstairs, meaning that once you’re back from a day at the races or a trip to the castle, you’ll be able to enjoy a meal and a generous helping of port before you head to bed. A cheerful atmosphere and smiling service make this an excellent choice.
