“Good option just outside York”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Stayed for a few nights while visiting York. Located just a few miles east of York. Inexpensive, clean, and comfortable rooms - maybe a little on the small side. No lift. Plenty of parking. The staff was wonderful and the restaurant has great food. Close to the Park and Ride, so makes a good accommodation option if you don't want to stay right in York.

Having been bought a driving experience at Elvington Airfield, we lokked for a hotel to stay close by, and found The Windmill, Dunnington. It was about a 5min drive from the airfield.
What a lovely friendly place to stay. The accommodation is seperate from the restaurant, and has been recently refurbished. It was very clean and quiet being away from the main road, and overlooking the restaurant garden.
The food was delicious and a good choiced menu.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit York but not wanting to stay in the city. it is only a short drive to the park and ride scheme.

After eating in the Dunnington village the night before, we decided to try The Windmill. What we didn't realise was that a table had to be booked. They managed to fit us in without any problem. The menu was extensive, as was the specials board.

We ordered our food and when it came it was hot and very tasty.

If I had one comment it was that the tables were quite close together so you couldn't help but hear what the neighbouring table was talking about and they allow children and most of the meal was eaten with the sound of a screaming baby.

With that said, we would visit again if we visit the area,

Good value food served hot. Service first class.
Excellent choice on menu for starter and main course.
Desserts choice superb but make sure you go hungry.
Nice country pub just outside York with ample parking.

Dunnington is 4 miles from York Centre. Its no good if you want to spend the evening in York, but oif you are on your way through its ideal. Comfortable rooms in modern extension. Staff helpful. Good food and beers reasonably priced. Bikes locked in outside area with the beer barrels. Recommended.

Room Tip: They are identical - on two floors.

Went here on a Thursday evening and had booked a table for 7pm. When we arrived I gave our name and we're told our table number was 29. We sat down expecting some service, that was our first mistake! We sat for ten minutes in a very quiet conservatory with no atmosphere while staff ignored us. Eventually just before we decided to leave another couple of diners told us we had to go to the bar to order. No one on the staff had thought to tell us this, even though it was quiet and we're obviously waiting. The other diners told us they asked to move to a more comfortable part of the restaurant but we're told they couldn't even though it was quiet. We ordered 2 steaks which were average at best for what we considered a high price. We would not recommend this place or visit it again.
