Hold onto your wizard’s hats – the Hotel Windsor has transfigured one of its rooms into a magical wizard-themed suite.

Just in time for the launch of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (now playing at the Princess Theatre – read our review here), the Windsor has enlisted the help of dozens of house elves to transform one of its rooms into a wizard's suite that you can stay in.

The wizard's suite features plenty of memorabilia from the world's most famous magical franchise including wands, magical items and prints. It will be the only room of its kind in Melbourne and will allow true 'boy wizard who cannot be named for legal reasons' fans the chance to live like their favourite undisclosed characters. You can even add on some officially licensed merch to your stay.

Personally we think the wizarding vibe they've recreated is straight out of the third instalment in said particular magical movie franchise, with lots of dark wood, antique suitcases and leather furnishings.

Plus, the Windsor is just a few steps away from the Princess Theatre, making it an ideal stay for those seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (you’ll appreciate staying next door after seeing the mammoth five-hour production).

The Hotel Windsor plans to keep the wizard's suite open for most of 2019, with stays available from February 21 until December 31. Bookings can be made now.

Here's how to book your Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets.

You need to visit this Harry Potter store in Collingwood.
