The Windmill is a long established pub which sits alongside just a few houses in the middle of Clapham common. The position is something of a feature which sits roughly midway between Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations each of which are around 500m away. I’m guessing that around 15yrs ago, someone had the bright idea of building a three storey extension at the side which is where all the accommodation is located.
The rooms are clean, have good bathrooms, TV and tea and coffee etc, with all meals being taken in the pub itself. I only had one breakfast there which was more than adequate although the stale smell of the pub from the night before was noticeable.
My thoughts are that the whole set up is in my view little different to a Travel Inn or similar. From my perspective the only difference between the two is the fact that the prices here start at £110 for bed and breakfast and I believe that you can get the same for much less, or something significantly better for only a little more expenditure elsewhere.
No real complaints but I feel that this place is only in the region of the £60 - 80 per night bracket and is therefore presently overpriced.
