If you are looking for a hotel where the bedroom toilet has someone else's URINE in the bowl, where there are SQUIRRELS SCRATCHING all night in the ceiling above you and the GENERAL MANAGER IS RUDE AND UNHELPFUL this is the place to be!! The springs have gone on the mattresses and the continental breakfast is poor and unimaginative. But if you have to stay in Clapham you don't have much choice!

I was down at this Hotel while on a course and I found it to be clean and comfortable and the food is adaquate and tasty.
The location is excellent and the Hotel suprisingly quiet.

Decent rooms. However do avoid room service. It was sent cold with stale bread.

The Windmill is located on Clapham Common, adjacent to a pub. Clapham is a wonderful residential area of southwest London. It is easily accessible by tube and bus and is chock-a-block full of young families with kids, dogs, soccer players, bike riders etc. There are many good restaurants, shops, pubs etc. Our room, a premium one, was extrarodinarily large and beautifully decorated in a clean, modern style. The breakfast, included, was nice with great pastries and full-cooked was an option. The common is huge and a great place to take a walk and enjoy the London that those who live there are fortunate to have. A bargain at around 150 BPS.

I have now stayed in this hotel on two seperate occassions. The staff are very friendly, the food is very good and the locations is great,especially in the summer months when there are lots of things happening on the common. The breakfasts are excellent and I will definetly stay here again.

I traveled to London with an American friend. For both, first trip to the U.K. Once we found our way to Clapham Common from Heathrow (first to Paddington Station, then via Tube to Clapham), we were tired from a redeye flight. We stayed in a premium room, more expensive than the standard room. Beds were comfortable, though I prefer a firmer mattress. The room was large enough, with decent wicker furniture, TV, coffeemaker, fridge. Very small closet (inadequate for two sets of clothing). Bathroom had no ventilation; when showering, the mirrors steamed up, so opening up a window was necessary (and it gets chilly in London!). Pub restaurant served tasty complimentary breakfast for guests and decent pub fare for dinner. Negatives: housekeeping did not provide new bath towels unless you requested them. Front desk staff was not knowledgable about London attractions (seems as if most of them just started working there). No quiet common areas for guests to sit outside of one's room, other than the pub itself. And, no wash cloths, and only one tiny bar of soap for the entire week! (We bought our own soap at the nearby Boots drugstore chain). Thankfully, we did not spend much time at the hotel, as there is so much to see and do in London. Overall, a disappointment, given that this was a "premium" room.
