We thought we'd hit peak Harry Potter fandom when a store dedicated to the wizarding world opened last year. Nope. With the latest Fantastic Beasts film just in cinemas and JK Rowling's Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre production now playing, the magical realm's touch on reality shows no sign of fading anytime soon.

Now, grandiose Melbourne institution The Hotel Windsor is continuing the craze by transforming one of its 180 heritage rooms into a wizarding wonderland — complete with rare collectibles from the Harry Potter franchise. Think wands, prints from the film's original illustrators and tonnes of official merchandise, along with many magical limited-edition items.

Guests of the suites — which have also been decked out with Hogwarts-appropriate vintage trunks, leather furniture and plush rugs — have exclusive access to all of it. And can even buy the magical merch, if they so please.

The suite's launch corresponds with the start of the Cursed Child performances at the Princess Theatre — located just down the block from the Windsor — and it will remain open for bookings through till December 31, 2019. This means that the magical world of Harry Potter doesn't have to end post-show, but will just keep on going back at your hotel room.

Of course, the suite will cost a pretty penny, starting at $699 for mid-week bookings and $899 on weekends. But, if you're a 'live, breathe and (literally) sleep' kind of fan, it just might be worth it.

The Wizards Suite at The Windsor is available to book from January 15–December 21, 2019. To secure your night's stay, head to The Hotel Windsor website.
