We were attending a wedding near by and we are glad we stayed here, all the staff were friendly and accommodating even though we arrived a bit early. Breakfast was ok, room was nice and clean I liked the little snacks they gave you too.

I booked 3 rooms via phone, for 3 couples and confirmed...

We stayed because there was a wedding nearby and we were very well looked after. The room was really nice - a pleasant surprise to find some crisps, sweets and water had been put on the table for us for free, we felt really special. This is certainly my choice of hotels for this area as I had another great...

We went to The Windmill for lunch with an elderly relative. The food was excellent and the portions very good. Our elderly relative, not having a big appetite, was very impressed with the "evergreen" menu where portions were smaller. There was a free salad bar with the best selection we had ever seen and was extremely fresh and the drinks...

I use the windmill for meetings of the Chartered Management Institute. They are friendly and accommodating and the free refills make this cost effective. The free wifi also means that I can access information and check emails. Good look in the future.

I stayed last weekend at the Windmill hotel and was very impressed. The rooms were well above the standard I had expected for the price, great value for money. What I liked the most was the restaurant, the food was delicious and filling at a very low price, I especially liked the unlimited salad bar. The service was fast and...
