Nice small hotel, better than the premier Inn around the area, freindly staff, a nice bar and restaurant and the rooms are well maintained and clean. A good choice if you are in the Daventry area on business or pasing throught the midlands, i would definately stay there again.

What has happened to the pub/restaurant/hotel that used to be? It seems a change of ownership and a refurbishment of the public areas has ripped the soul out of this one time destination venue. I used to head off to the windmill with anticipation, thinking of the imaginative menus that were created by the team. But now it may as...

Windmillinn, Owner at The Windmill at Badby, responded to this review

I have no idea of when you last came to us but I took over the windmill nearly 3 years ago, and with that, the kitchen staff hasn't changed with only one chef being replaced. I must however agree with you with regards to why gammon was on the specials board. I always look at reviews as honest feedback and...

If you're anywhere in the vicinity of The Windmill Inn, I would recommend stopping by for a bite to eat. We stumbled upon this little pub earlier today and it was such a happy mistake. Steve was very accommodating and sincere. I ordered the ham sandwich and my expectations were exceeded. How do you make a sandwich something divine? I...

Had a great meal at this lovely country pub, which has been refurbished well, but not lost its charm. The pub meal menu has a good choice which is supplemented by some tasty specials. The belly pork was superb. Well done to the friendly staff for making us feel very welcome and to those in the kitchen who cooked us...

I have stayed on 2 previous occasions both connected with work, and always enjoy the food. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff friendly and attentive. Makes a nice change from the characterless chain budget hotels.

This was our over night accommodation for a wedding near by. The room was lovely and was clean and tidy. Didn't get to see much else, breakfast was lovely in the morning. The staff where pleasant and we are most thankful for accommodating us with an early check in. We hope to come back as the surrounding area seems lovely.
