I attended a wedding here and stayed overnight too. Conveniently located on Clapham Common and just a 5-10 minute walk from Clapham Common Underground, The Windmill is a "boutique" style hotel with most of the bedrooms having been recently refurbished in stylish contemporary style with comfortable beds and crisp white bedding and plump pillows. Rooms have a mini bar and... More

I stayed at this hotel for three nights and everything was fine. Of course it is nothing special but it was the cheapest hotel I found in London and even so it was better than expected. It is located above a pub but it was not a problem during the night. The noise actually came from the street, which seemed... More

Friendly welcome, good spacious room, clean new separate bathroom two flights down, a little noisy. Good area. I recommend Woodys Turkish restaurant down the road. Good place to stay in London cheaply. Close to bus routes and rail, but Tube quite a hike.

I really think the bad reviews must be for some other hotel called The Windmill and not for the hoStel in Acton, which is in terms of facilities and cleanness far better than any other hostel I have stayed at in London. I booked the 4-bed female only dorm. It was a very large room with four single beds in... More

Very nice atmosphere and an extremely helpful and kind staff. Their description of the place is a little bit wrong. No laundry facilities or airport transfer like it said. Also, they only accept cash for payment. Breakfast is included, but you pay for it. So that would not really mean breakfast is included...

This place is cheap because it's a [--]. Power was out in the toilet and shower for 2 days. Not recommended. The only thing good about it was the friendly one eared cat outside. Even when the workers know you are staying there they are still dodgy. There was a homeless lady living there who wondered the halls at night.... More

Stayed here with girlfriend for the London marathon. This is not a hostel or a hotel, it is two bars (one a pub, one more a club), which has rooms above and beside, you must enter through the club to get to your room, a bit odd. Arove to a fight going on outside the place which the bouncers were... More

Omg, It is the worst place we've ever stayed in.. Rooms are freezing cold, everything is old, not like old fashioned, but OLD... terrible... There is pets in there as well, cat, which can walk in a bar, or sleep on a couches, I wouldn't mind pets, but I am allergic to cats, outside is all the time barking dog..... More
