Mixture of good and bad at the Windmill
We came up for a family funeral 1st thing the next morning.
We booked on line via Late Rooms and stated we would be there at 10pm, (due to prior commitments and distance to travel), however at 9.30pm we were being chased by phone "as they were now closing". We arrived just after 10pm to find the place full of staff, setting up for the following day, so the chase call was a bit of a mystery. We were accommodated on the ground floor of the refurbished 1980s hotel block at the rear of the restaurant. It is a shame that the corridor doors and floors all squeak as it detracts from an otherwise decent building. The room was lovely and clean with high-quality chunky wooden furniture, BUT the double bed was hopeless for me as I am over 6' tall and I didn't sleep well with my ankles sticking out the bottom of the duvet. Not sure why a double bed as there was plenty of room for a king sized one. The en-suite positively sparkled, but the shower was nasty... with black mould all round the base and in the corners, but the main issue was the collapsed floor under the tray, (presumably due to rot). When the shower was used, the tray sagged and the doors came open, letting water everywhere. The extractor fan had also failed, adding to the ideal warm, damp conditions for rot. Not good. The full-Yorkshire breakfast in the morning was superb, without any of the usual pool of grease on the plate. I'm not sure about the cling film on the sugar bowl though. On the down side, the cleaner was vacuuming the breakfast room while we were eating, before doing the empty function room to the rear, instead of the other way round. I had to smile when we returned for the wake after the funeral... there in the middle of the dining room floor was that vacuum cleaner again. I went to the bar for 4 soft drinks and the first squirt of the soda nozzle shot a load of black bugs into the glass... nasty. On the plus side, the staff are great; friendly, cheerful and eager to please. Would we stay there again. Probably not... there are far too many issues that should have been sorted out before the customers arrived.
Excellent place to stay.
Friendly staff, excellent food & excellent accommodation.
