When it comes to hotel ratings, the top resource is clearly the travel publication, Con de Naste. In their not-too-humble opinion, the Hotel Windsor in Melbourne, Australia is among the top 18 hotels in the world. There is little disagreement among those who have enjoyed its plush accommodations. When combined with one of the finest French champagnes, the Chandon Stay at the Hotel Windsor provides the vacationer with an unforgettable vacation.
A Lot of Bang for the Buck
At a price that beats many of New York’s mid-range hotels, the Hotel Windsor offers breathtaking views of the mountains across the Yarra Valley, which greet you as soon as the valet parker takes your car. Domaine Chandon champagne in the evening allows you to relax and enjoy the sights and the benefits of this luxurious hotel. Breakfast in the morning is included in your stay, provided by the award-winning culinary staff that works at the on-site 111 Spring Street restaurant.
Drink in the Beauty of Australia
By no means should vacationers remain inside the compound – as nice as it is – when they could go out and explore the many sights, smells and sounds of surrounding Victoria. A few hours from Melbourne’s city center is the ocean, where one can swim with dolphins and seals, or gaze in wide-eyed wonder at the Twelve Apostles, a dozen limestone rock formations that were formed by those great natural sculptors, the wind and the water.
Champagne or no champagne, no Victorian vacation would be complete without a drive down the Great Ocean Road, 108 miles of coastal splendor along Australia’s southwestern shore that takes you past craggy cliffs, lush rainforests and picturesque beaches. After drinking in such natural beauty, one may find oneself just thirsty enough for another bottle of Domaine Chandon, and another enchanted evening at the Hotel Windsor.
