Ronald W, Manager at Windmill Family & Commercial Hotel, responded to this review

The only problem with the room was the lack of hot water, a problem we were unaware of until the guests arrived. This was due to a blown fuse which could have been rectified had they been more cooperative. Incidentally, when the room was checked about 5 pm the water was hot. This problem did not affect the central heating... More

Booked into the restaurant here the new Nayeema's. How very disappointing. We had booked and when we arrived at the reception the two women behind were more interested in serving beer to a couple of blokes. Behind reception was untidy, littered with vacs and children's toys. We were ignored for a while but after announcing our arrival we were told... More

We stayed here for the first time and were glad we had not been put off by one or two negative reviews. We were made very welcome, the room was first class and the staff cheerful and helpful. The complimentary tray included bottles of spring water, replaced on a daily basis. The owners are trying very hard and deserve to... More

Stayed here for one night, on business, and was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and tidy and the staff were both friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and served on time, as I had requested. My only regret was that I could only stay for one night, but I will definitely choose to stay here in the future.

The local branch of the Royal British Legion held a pie and mash supper to commemorate D-Day on Friday 6th June, 2014. We completely booked out the restaurant, so the hotel was at full stretch. The hotel had decorated the room for us and the waitresses were dressed in 1940’s clothes. The meal was served on time and efficiently by... More

Having read the reviews after we had booked we were a little apprehensive. But ignore the negative reviews because this place really gives value for money. Since the new owners took over in November 2012 they have worked hard to improve the overall standard of the hotel. The welcome we received was excellent and the staff were very attentive without...

Just spent two nights at this hotel and after reading the reviews on here i was very wary of what I was going to find. But I had no need to worry.

Not good value for money...not very clean...bathroom was filthy as were the windows and carpets and the there was a horrible smell in the hallway and room...the bedding appeared clean but the towels were old and worn and not enough had been provided...perhaps this was because they knew the shower didn't work! However there was no one to complain to!... More

The room was old fashioned, the toilet roll had clearly been in the toilet and just put back on the holder and was stuck together the shower was filthy!. The TV would... More
