Finding cheap hotels in Windsor and Eton can be a challenge, especially during Royal Ascot. Let us help you to find the best price...
Popular for short breaks, many Windsor hotels and Eton hotels evoke the pomp and prestige of the towns, making them some of the finest luxury hotels in Berkshire. Most are located in Windsor, which is larger than Eton, including the village of Eton Wick.
Eton has plenty of sights to see and antique shops to nose around in, though, and its delights are only a few minutes further from hotels in Windsor than from the handful of hotels in Eton itself, which is just across the River Thames.
Either way, you might struggle to find budget hotels in Windsor and Eton, especially if you plan to get your glad rags on and have a flutter at Royal Ascot in June. Local hotels can charge top whack during this hugely popular event and Ascot Racecourse is just 20 minutes from Windsor and Eton. Big name chains in the area, which include Mercure, Macdonald, Holiday Inn Express and Travelodge, as well as cosy inns, might offer cheaper rates, though.
Opting for a stay in the winter months will also help to keep the cost of a Windsor and Eton break down. Whenever you plan to travel, booking your hotel as far in advance as possible is one of the best ways to secure a cheap rate.
