I did not want to leave this hotel. Situated on Clapham Common it manages to feel like a country hideaway and yet it is surrounded by the city. What makes it so special is the interior design. There are moments which force you to look again: the picture with Victorians who are actually a badger family; the bird cages, the...

Hi Wanderer Thank you for this excellent review, reviews like this no only make my and my entire teams day, but also I think are exceptionally useful for other trip advisor users making their mind up where to stay.

I only had several hours in this place, but first of all the room was tasteful and with all the minimums in it, including a nespresso machine! Great view from the hotel into a big vast green yard, a very rustic look of decoration in the room with many modern amenities and finally a fantastic breakfast with bottomless coffee in...

I always put my parents up in The Windmill, when they come to visit. Easily accessible, via tube, to central London; but in a picturesque spot, situated on Clapham Common. The rooms feel very cosy and bespoke. The breakfast is well presented and plentiful. There is also on-site parking, for hotel customers, which is handy. Would definitely recommend as it...

Dear Jeremy Many thanks for taking the time to leave us this feedback, it's much appreciated. Glad to hear that both yourself & Margaret enjoyed the day, though truly sorry that your poached eggs weren't perfect, nothing upsets me more than a non runny egg, glad it didn't upset your stay too much.

While staying with friends who live nearby, we went here for dinner and drinks. Lovely place. Great food, friendly staff and best of all, doggies and coal fireplaces. Traditional Pub fare with updated options. All three of us enjoyed our meals. Nice wine selection. The Pavlova was truly amazing.

We took my mother-in-law here for lunch today. They get so busy at weekend you can't book on the day but it was worth the risk. We each had a different roast and all enjoyed our meal very much. They even rustled up a tub for the leftover chicken so we could take it home. Could do with sharper knives...

Wonderful hotel full of character. Friendly staff and resident dog.
