We stayed for one night whilst attending a concert in Brixton. This place is lovely. Great room with mirrors by plug sockets for drying hair etc. Shelves in the bathroom for putting your stuff on. Obvious but rare to find on both counts. Beautiful Cotswolds feel to the room decor-wise. Great pub below the rooms that stayed open for residents...

Everything about the hotel is spot on and great value for the facilities provided. The room was styled and presented brilliantly, the bed was magnificent and the coffee pod machine a nice touch. Being hyper, hyper critical our shower had a curtain and not a screen which was a minor blip on an otherwise faultless stay. Breakfast was the same...

This hotel is a friendly and relaxing hotel, that takes the strain off a visit to London. I stayed there after a recommendation from a friend with my family and the hotel was just what we wanted/ I was struck by the relaxed and friendly staff, managed by the host with a dog and a big smile, Benedict.

This was our second stay at the Windmill, visiting family in the area. As before the welcome was warm, the room comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Our only complaint was a shortage of coat hangers, which shows how good everything else was! I like the fact that it's dog friendly which adds to the warm and friendly atmosphere in the...

Booked this hotel as a quick one night stay whilst visiting London and Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. We were looking for something affordable with parking onsite and near a tube station. The Windmill was a lovely surprise and definitely was beyond our expectations. The room had a very boutique feel and loved the Nespresso machine! The pub was lovely...

Location is fantastic, 400 metres from a tube station, shops, pubs and restaurants and as you're probably aware it backs on to Clapham Common. The pub downstairs is nearly always busy / vibrant and has a good positive feel about it. Bar service can be a bit slow when it's busy, but they and restaurant staff always come across that...

I had a wonderful birthday dinner last night with family. We enjoyed an amazing camembert starter, fantastic mains and the best ever sticky toffee pudding! Thank you so much to the two lovely people who served us all night and were very patient with our slow ordering! Nothing went wrong - and I'm fairly fussy :)

This is a nice hotel located by a wonderful commons, i.e., park. The hotel is located outside of the hussel and bussel of downtown London but is only five minutes from the underground. Our room was very pleasant looking out on the common and the staff were very helpful when we needed some assistance. The Sunday Roast was quite nice;...
