Situated on the intersection of Spring and Bourke Streets, across from
historic Parliament House, The Windsor is an exemplar of Melbourne's
Victorian architecture - the last remaining Grand Hotel in Australia.
Pre-dating The Ritz, The Savoy and The Raffles, The Windsor is a true
Melbourne icon, a venue to impress interstate and international conference
Established in 1883, the 5-star establishment offers a combination of
heritage and modern venues. Larger scale conferences might like to select
from the majestic Grand Ballroom, with its stained glass windows and
original 19th century colour scheme. Or the Bourke Room, in the hotel's
modern wing - a tiered, circular space with large windows overlooking
Spring and Bourke Streets.
Smaller workshops and meetings can be conducted in the historic Winston
Room, the original 19th century dining room, the Canberra Room, or modern
Wallis & Ed - complete with its own private alfresco area and bar.
Accommodating 20 - 400 guests, including 180 rooms and suites for attendees
requiring an overnight stay, The Windsor is a quintessentially Melbourne
venue with an illustrious heritage - known for its gracious service that
will leave guests with an unforgettable experience.
Helmed by Executive Chef Tom Brockbank (former Head Chef, Estelle
Events), The Windsor's banquet menus feature modern Australian cuisine
with an emphasis on excellent local produce. The hotel also offers a
personalised menu service, where Chef Brockbank meets with you to create
menus to your preferred theme or cuisine.
Corporate Social Responsibility
The Windsor has made a strong commitment towards environmental
sustainability. Food scraps from banquet events are fed to ORCA - an
innovative clean food waste technology system - turning them into a
liquid that is then filtered into existing plumbing infrastructure,
instead of making its way into landfill. Where possible, single use
plastics, such as straws (the hotel uses an environmentally-friendly,
non-plastic option) have been eliminated. A sparkling water system, MODA,
is used in restaurants, eliminating the use of water bottles. Soap bars
from the rooms are recycled via the Soap Aid program, and the hotel
continues to explore other sustainability measures.
The Bourke Room
One of our larger modern spaces, The Bourke Room is a beautiful space
set across three tiers in a circular design. Large windows offer views
of Spring and Bourke Streets as well as the historic Parliament House.
The Grand Ballroom
The majestic Grand Ballroom is one of Melbourne's most treasured and
distinctive spaces, featuring seven original stained glass cupolas,
brass fixtures, stained glass walls, a dancefloor, and a rich colour
scheme that pays homage to its original design.
The Canberra Room
The Canberra Room, reflecting the traditional elegance of the hotel, is
popular for a diverse range of mid-sized events. The antique
furnishings of the room provide an exquisite ambience.
The Winston Room
The original 19th century dining room, The Winston Room features tall
Victorian windows and light and fan fixtures reminiscent of its past.
It is a popular venue for intimate events.
Wallis & Ed
Situated in The Windsor's modern wing, Wallis & Ed is a
contemporary space with its own private entrance, alfresco area and
private bar. The venue, which features concrete walls, expansive
windows and an industrial feel, is the definition of tradition
