The Experience

A 1930s Riviera hotel with a pool in a palm grove and exotic birds in cages – a lush escape in the heart of Nice. Indoors, Hôtel Windsor has introduced the Thirties to the 21st century by asking contemporary artists to decorate some of the rooms. The result is gifts of wit, provocation, flights of fancy and minimalist sobriety: Joan Mas’s Cage à Mouches, cosmopolitan Ben’s writing on the walls, Antoine Beaudoin’s frescoes of Venice, Egypt, India – and Tintin, all-time favourite. Plain white beds have contrasting cushions or quilts, furniture is minimal but interesting, little bathrooms are delightful and one room is painted in glimmering gold. Clear bright colours everywhere, including the richly exotic public areas; the charming Odile is passionate about contemporary art and chooses a different artist every year to reinvent the lobby. Outside, a tropical garden gives space for reflection among bamboo, fruiting trees and bougainvillea. Light filters through onto warmly smiling staff who prepare sumptuous buffet breakfasts under the palms in summer and run a superb spa, with gym, on the fifth floor.

Stepping off the streets of Nice and into the Hotel Windsor is immediately calming. The hotel is relaxed and full of art; the garden an oasis of foliage and huge moon over the pool; the rooms are varied - the ones looking over the garden are particularly roomy with artistic floor to ceiling paintings by various artists on the walls. A real pleasure.

Patrick, Sawday's Inspector

A great stay in a unique hotel with heaps of character, helpful staff and the lovely garden and pool. We loved it and are going back! The lift is extraordinary and worth taking at least once. The classic building with contemporary art made for a wonderful experience.

Pippa, Briancon

Good location and facilities, lovely room and staff.


A delightful, well priced small hotel of character equi-distanced between the sea, the Old Town and the station. The art work was fun, the garden immaculate and a lovely retreat. There was an outdoor unheated pool. Breakfast and dinner excellent ( had roaring wood fire in the evening). The art work was thought provoking: the "rocket launch" commentary in the lift made me giggle every time! I would stay here again.
