“"Perfect"”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

We stayed at the Windmills during early September, and had 10 days of sunshine to compliment that fantastic view. Jane and Steve have great teams, a good chef, excellent staff in the dinning room, as well as the reception and bar staff, not forgetting the staff you don't see who service the rooms. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. Monica & Marion in the dining room and Marius in the bar where really helpful. A room with a view is a must. We will be back next year.

Room Tip: Try and book a Sea View, it makes waking up a pleasure.

We stayed at the Windmills in August / September. Not bad, food very good, staff OK, waitning staff in restraunt very good. Only moan is you cant have a decent shower, cold water pressure is very low making for a very hot shower, which goes from cold, to burning hot as they are not thermostatic. I think this could be dangerous with young children and maybe they should be supervised when using. The hotel is in a lovely position overlooking the bay. Our friends had to move room as there was a water tank in the roof which was making a noise all the time and at 6 in the morning they could hear people walking about above them, not good for a restfull holiday. They paid extra for an upgrade to a sea view, which we also had and there was no problems. I would suggest pay extra & get a room that doesnt have staff accomodation above. Would go back again no problem, hopefully they would have invested some money in the shower department.

Room Tip: Speak to the hotel and tell them you do not want a room with accomodation above, also not with water...

Thank you for your comments, we will look into the shower issue in that particular room. Water pressure may dip during the very busy times BUT I must correct the reviewer in that ALL our bath and shower mixers are Mira, thermostatically controlled mixers, we will be checking to see that all are functioning correctly. As mentioned in this review, we do respond to all guests requests/complaints, if any, during their stay and endeavour at all times to provide a comfortable Hotel. We are generally known as a quiet hotel in a peaceful location so we apologise if there was excessive noise at times during your stay, we will monitor that very closely. We are pleased that you enjoyed other aspects of the Hotel and you would consider returning. Thank you.

A fabulous 5 day break at the Windmills Hotel, excellent service , a wonderful view, a fantastic menu and even sunshine !,
A very relaxing time - lunch on the terrace, swimming in the pool , a view over the bay from the restaurant - and can't wait to return.
All of the staff are very friendly and helpful , a must for families, and friends .
Perfect !

Janice

Room Tip: A sea view room with a balcony - if possible

We had a lovely week at the Windmills Hotel. The food was lovely, hotel clean and friendly and the views spectactular. Unbelieveably, we found the service in the restaurant far too quick for our liking and perhaps they can tone that down a little for next year....

The hotel is set way back from the bay, so it's a good 15 minute walk down, and a 30 minute walk back up if you can't find a passing taxi!!

We had a car for the week, which is recommended, although the efficient bus service is just a few yards from the hotel and takes you all over the Island...

Room Tip: Front rooms are larger and have the glorious view of the bay -- but tend to get hot as they're i...

Thank you so much for your review, guests feedback is important to us and we are pleased that overall you had a good experience and hope to return. We have discussed with the Restaurant staff to be more careful and not rush guests during busy times, diners shopuld recieve good service but also feel comfortable and not pressured, generally I think we achieve that but a little reminder prompted by your review can do no harm. Our wonderful sea view does come at the cost of an elevated position and for some guests it is harder work and the least you can expect is a nice cold drink as a reward, it is hoped that the bus service back from the beach to our stop will be improved from its current shedule. Thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you back again "next year". S & J

A very well run hotel. The restaurant had beautiful views. A three course meal for £19.95 was excellent value. Pretty gardens, comfortable terrace - perfect for the scrummy afternoon teas - and lovely warm outdoor pool.
