Booked in here with my wife on the 21st March and received a warm welcome by the new owner of the pub, I was at first slightly disappointed that I wasn't booked in the old windmill part of the hotel as they were giving the place a much need renovation, but when I was shown my room in the old...

I booked the room months ago and was not looking forward to it due to some comments I had heard. We arrived two days after the new owner took over and although in the cross over of old to new we were really pleased with our room. Clean, tidy and very welcoming. The breakfast was in the room but we... More

Excellent hotel and all staff were amazing, our group arrived late and we were still greeted with a warm and friendly reception. Our rooms were great very clean and nicely laid out. The Sunday lunch was delicious. We were made to feel very at home and treated very good by everyone at the windmill. I Will be visiting again very... More

The room and facilities were dirty, shower control and toilet flush and taps were broken/ didn't work well. The so-called continental breakfast was a packet of cereal in the bedroom! But the staff were helpful and friendly.

I utterly disagree with a previous reviewer (jimnab of Littleborough) I would say take no notice of this report. Admittedly I haven't stayed there for a while, but when I did my wife and I found our accomodation clean and comfortable. Maybe a little unusual, as we were staying in the base of an old round windmill, from which the... More

From first contact to our final departure our hosts were welcoming, friendly and helpful with all our requests. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and serviced daily. Cereals, tea, coffee, fruit juice and fresh milk (in the fridge) were available in the room and, in addition, croissants or danish pastries were supplied on request for breakfast The bar is cosy and...

We booked to stay at the Windmill Inn as we were visiting family in Basildon after a week in Norfolk. On arrival we were shown to our room and from the moment we walked in I knew it was a BIG mistake. The room itself is tiny, you have a double bed (dirt and dust included at no extra cost),... More

This is a regular meeting-place for an old friend and me as the owners are really friendly and on the whole the food is of an excellent quality(with the exception of an under-done steak recently but that was sorted out) with reasonable prices and massive portions. The atmosphere is nice and friendly too. Ok, it's not Café Rouge but, for... More

Stayed over the August bank holiday 2013 and was absolutely perfect for my boyfriend and I. We loved our room in the old windmill building, really quirky and pretty setting! Good food. And very friendly and helpful hosts! When we decided to visit London on our last day it was no trouble for us to go back to the windmill... More

I stayed in the Windmill just for a single night on business. The criteria is always was something in the budget price range, but nice enough not to feel like it. The welcome when I arrived was excellent, you're made to feel like they are truly glad you have chosen to stay with them. The room, although not fancy, was... More
