Stayed here in mid-February. On check-in, we were lucky enough to be allocated a accessibility room so very spacious room & bathroom. Dinner in the restaurant was disappointing with the food overcooked but breakfast was very good. Perhaps the chef had an off night? Would definitely stay there again. Thought it was good value for London.

Room Tip: Accessibility room was very large but luck of the draw, I suspect

This place is quite unique, A hotel/pub/restaurant on the edge of Clapham common. It wasn't cheap, but seems about the going rate for a hotel so near the city centre.
Free parking is a bonus, where so many other hotels have you by the b*lls & charge £20 a night.
The rooms are comfortable, and like the rest of the place, a little shabby, but it just seems to add to the atmosphere. The breakfasts were substantial, & the bar meals good quality.

just got back from a weekend in London and we stayed at the windmill on the common.
We Paid £130 per night B&b for a substandard room overlooking the empties yard at the back.For this price you would at least expect a morning paper, but no that was extra.They had no maps of the underground to give us and the man behind the desk had no idea about the area to help us to get to our destination.The staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was good but we feel it was overprices for a glorifies pub.

Needed somewhere to stay south of the river. Great find. Friendly check in. Had help with bags as room was on 3rd floor. Very comfortable set up. Room very clean and functional. Bathroom small but not a problem. Great breakfast offered in lovely breakfast room.

We found this hotel by accident and stayed in one of the Boutique rooms they have. We were treating ourselves at the Clapham Picture House and then back to the hotel for late night drinks and a lazy morning. There is on-site parking which was brilliant and the night porter even made us a sandwich late in the evening when we got peckish (very early dinner).

Room Tip: Go for the Boutique ones, a little more expensive but worth it - treat yourself.

We stayed on 24-26 December and found this to be a gem. The modern hotel is tacked on the side of the pub and it has 29 rooms and our was large, well provisioned and comfortable. A plus was the availability of parking - this is usually very difficult in Clapham.
Breakfast on both days was poor. Notwithstanding that it was Christmas day the 'continental breakfast' served in our room was unattractive and consisted only of a croissant, a glass of fruit juice and a packet of cereal. The following morning a tepid, at best, cooked breakfast was served on a cold plate. Given the quality of the accommodation rather better was expected.
The pub is a large barn like building and, because it is open plan, it is difficult to escape the constant piped music that it is presumed to be played for the benefit of the staff.
That all said, the hotel options in Clapham are limited and The Windmill is almost certainly the top of the pops. Would we go again - yes!

Room Tip: A room facing the common is recommended
