We stayed here in October while visiting London to watch a show. Perfect location right on the common and close to underground. We were lucky enough to receive an upgrade to the master suite which was beautiful! The roll top bath made the weekend.

The Windmilll Clapham was the most perfect location for our weekend celebrations. Our bedroom was very comfortable and we loved the quirky decor. We had a family buffet on the Friday evening which was excellent and enjoyed by all. Breakfast was delicious and the staff were so welcoming. Bar staff were professional and friendly and the security team were fabulous. Big thanks to Larry for helping my daughter-in-law and grandchildren on Saturday evening. Finally, Max was a big hit with the children.

Room Tip: Try to book a room overlooking Clapham Common

Stayed for the weekend with my family and extended family in the beautiful Windmill Hotel for my nephew's wedding nearby. From the moment we arrived till our departure all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were gorgeous, quirky and cool with everything you could want. This is all under the same roof as one of the nicest pubs, that is not only baby friendly but dog friendly ( special mention to Max) too and has everything from a good pint to the best sausage rolls I have ever eaten. To all the team at the Windmill thank you for making this a very special weekend for all of us.

Hello Cathy

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review of our hotel and pub.

I'm honestly so pleased to hear the staff were both friendly and helpful and you enjoyed the pub and our Chefs will be thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed our home made sausage rolls (they're Max's favourite too!)

It was more than a pleasure to have you stay with us and hope to see you again should you visit London again.

Thanks again

Katie (and Max of course!)

We used to drink in this pub many years ago when Mods and Rockers roamed the country, so I was pleased to book it for our short nostalgic trip back to the area. The rooms were nicely decorated, clean and provided refreshments as well as a fully stocked mini bar. The toilet was clean with all facilities and the walk in shower was roomy with nice hot water. The room also boasted air conditioning and a safe. We ate in the restaurant for our evening meal and everything was nicely cooked and up to expectations. Similarly breakfast had everything to offer from a cold buffet to the full works.

Room Tip: Our twin room was on the top (Third) floor. No lifts.

I absolutely loved this hotel!
Beautifully decorated rooms that are clean and a good size. Extremely comfy beds too.
I recommend paying to get breakfast included as it’s delicious! It’s a la carte so the food is fresh. We also went to the pub there for dinner which was fantastic.
Friendly staff, always helpful. Has a very homely feel about the place. Almost feels like you’re in a little country pub, but it’s only 20 minutes from Leicester square!
My only minor negatives was that we found they reused the towels when we left them hanging on the bath instead of giving fresh ones. Also the WiFi was pretty awful and dropped out a lot.
Regardless I would not hesitate to stay again and highly recommend it.
