Positive Reviews

Average rooms

There's nothing all that bad about the rooms at the Windmill. In fact, most guests mention that they found the rooms were clean and tidy. Some felt they lacked attention to detail but the consensus seems to be that they provide acceptable surroundings for the night.

Enjoyable Sunday carvery

With just a few exceptions, guests enjoy the Sunday carvery on offer at the Windmill, mostly describing the food as nicely prepared and tasty. Service also appears to be good, with the majority of reviews suggesting that the staff is friendly and attentive.


Guests comment on the low rates for the rooms, as well as freebies such as Wi-Fi and parking. The typically view is that the property offers good value for money, although the addition of a free breakfast would make things even better.

Negative Reviews

Poorly organised events

Feedback about the Windmill suggests that the property is poorly organised when it comes to hosting events such as business conferences, parties and weddings. The staff don't seem to have everything in hand and this leads to confusion and disappointment among guests.

Ambience could be better

Several guests mention that the restaurant was so quiet when they visited that it resulted in a poor ambience while eating. Some background music would improve matters but guests found this wasn't forthcoming.


A number of guests found the location of the Windmill was too secluded for their tastes. It will probably suffice if you have a car or don't mind paying for taxis but there is little to speak of within walking distance.
