The Windmill is a beautiful 42 bedroom boutique hotel situated right on Clapham Common. All rooms have air-con, mini bar, safe, nespresso coffee machines, full Sky TV package (including movies & sports) hairdryer, iron & ironing board. We are also a historic pub with a lively bar, separate dining areas and a wonderful outside beer garden for those elusive sunny days. Whilst our rooms unfortunately aren't dog friendly you'll probably meet our resident Bernese Mountain Dog Max, a giant friendly bear who is London's most famous pub dog!

Lovely stay and comfortable room. I would however recommend not getting a room on the front as they are above the bar with an unusual finish time of 0130 on the night we stayed + a beer delivery in the morning at 0730. Others may not find in as noisy as I did, as I live in the

Hi Clem Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and found your room to be comfortable, I do apologise if you disturbed by noise on your visit, we have a late event once a year in the bar which unfortunately was the night you stayed with us, I wish you'd let us know you'd been disturbed when checking out as we would have happily offered you a discount to make up for the inconvenience. I've put a note on your file to ensure you're allocated to a quiet room on your next stay and subject to availability I'd also be more than happy to offer you a free upgrade to one of our feature rooms as well, just drop me an email at windmillhotel@youngs.co.uk next time you book and I'll arrange for you. We do hope to see you again Kind Regards Ben Evans General Manager

Had done a 13km walk when the heavens opened. We were looking for somewhere to eat so came here. They said the wait for a table (@2pm) was 30-40 mins but we only waited about 20. Lovely dining room, nice table, good menu. Had to wait a short while for food but it was plentiful

HI Maureen I'm afraid our not, our license stipulates that the Pub must close to all guests at closing time. However we can provide room service to your room if you fancy a night cap Kind Regards Ben Evans General Manager

Hi Joseph All of our double beds are actually King Size so a good fit for most, if you book one of our 3 feature rooms or a twin with the beds connected together then those beds are Super King. Hope this helps Ben Evans General Manager

How far from Heathrow and how far from Central London
HI Gwen By car we are around 45 minutes from Heathrow (dependant on traffic) and about an hour on the tube. You can get to central London for example Leicester Square in less than 20 minutes on the tube and about 40 minutes by road Thanks Ben Evans General Manager

The hotel is within walking distance to the Clapham Common Underground Station, which is on the Northern Line. By there, you will get to Waterloo Station in 10 minutes, and to central london in 20 minutes max (Leicester Square). Also, the area has plenty of restaurants - I live there - but the restaurant present at the windmill is mostly meat. I am not sure why someone would say that the area is not good to visit central London or has no restaurants, the offer spams from spanish to brazilian to peruvian to greek to burgers and bbq.

"Ask for one overlooking the common"
"Rooms to the rear are quiet"
"I think all the rooms are quiet and lovely but the rooms on the park side have nice views"
"My room was very quiet overlooking the car park and common beyond"
"Further away from the bar area probably and toward the back of the property."
