Go Travel Windsor: A Place To Lay Your Weary Head

   

 

As the Hawkesbury Show (Hawkesbury Showground, Clarendon) is coming up, 15-17 April, you may have out of town guests who need accommodation. We have recommendations. For the budget minded, book with Alexander The Great Motel in Vineyard.

Address: 317 Windsor Road, Vineyard
Phone: 02 4577 5555
(Free Wi-Fi)
Note: Book early if you are attending the Bridge-to-Bridge races or the Blues & Roots Festival.

 

In 2013, the ATG (as Windsor-ites call the motel) took on new life - new bathroom, beds, bed linens, microwaves, toasters - new everything!

 

ATG is a family-owned and managed affordable motel with 25 rooms, a pool and restaurant within a few steps. The family is of Macedonian heritage - hence the name. This three-and-a half-star motel is only minutes from historic Windsor. Its close proximity creates high demand, so best book your reservations early - months early if you want to attend the annual Power Boat or Ski races, or the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival.

 

John and Katerina are friendly hosts, paying special attention to your needs. They have young kids so are empathetic to moms and dads and they want your stay to be pleasant and easy.

 

TIZZANA WINERY B&B

 

     

 

If you would like a lovely getaway in April we know just the B&B. Temperatures will have cooled in the Hawkesbury and kayaking on the river will be great fun. But the icing on the cake is a weekend stay at upmarket Tizzana B&B in Ebenezer -- a five star accommodation experience, complete with wine from the cellar and local Hawkesbury produce.. 

 

Address: 518 Tizzana Road, Ebenezer
Phone: 02 4579 1150
Advance bookings for dinner upon arrival are required. A gay-friendly establishment.

 

Only a 15-minute drive from Windsor, Tizzana B&B is situated on a winding road through horse and wine country. This five-star accommodation, where idyllic Tuscan-like views overlook the vineyards and a nearby lily farm, is just 'what the doctor ordered'.

 

Our reference is to Dr. Thomas Fiaschi (c.1887) who planted this Australian vineyard and built the early sandstone cellar door. The original building burnt down in 1955, leaving only a stone shell. After much painstaking and backbreaking work, Carolyn and Peter Auld have brought the cellar door back to its original intent and have added a fashionable B&B upstairs on the first level.

 

Comfy Couch

 

Bedrooms are furnished and beautifully decorated with handsome large wooden pieces; the living area with large leather couches, a fireplace and area rugs. This is a B&B with that touch of sophistication and style. An additional benefit… with early arrangements prior to your arrival, you can book a five-course dinner at the cellar door. Carolyn's dinners are divine - slow food prep and artisan wines. Such indulgence!
