Small Inn, or hotel in Badby, in the center of the UK. Rooms were clean, but really UK a bit outdated. Which you can also call typical country side hotel. Breakfast was very good. Hotel is quiet. Understand dinner is pretty good.

Perfect location for visiting Daventry. Good food, nice ale and a very filling breakfast. The room tended towards functional rather than luxury, but it was clean, and overall, more than adequate for the price. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.

Easily the most hospitable Inn that I have ever stayed in. Room was simply furnished but bright, airy and clean. Bar food was excellent as was the locally brewed draught beer. A return taxi journey to the wedding venue was organised without me even lifting a finger. Very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

It is a small local pub, and these can sometimes be a bit intimidating if only filled with locals, but not here - there was a busy, bustling atmosphere that felt really friendly. Despite... More

We settled into the pub for dinner and had wonderful food and hospitality and the staff rallied around us with 1st class service. The dinner offering was delicious... More

Just back from the Crick boat show and fancied a lovely pub grub type evening. Asked our hostess and she recommended the Windmill. Well, food gorgeous, beer wonderful and service French...actually that's the waiter but extremely good. The whole British country real ale, real food, real people but hush...don't tell everyone because Badby deserves to be kept secret. Charming and... More
