This place is fab! 2 4 1 on meals weekdays!!! And the food is lovely. Gorgeous homemade pub grub :-) will be coming back! However ordering at the bar is abit of a pain, when your half way through your meal and have to get up and go to the bar to get another drink

Noisy hotel room, average food quality. I needed to change some euro to sterling to catch a cab and the staff at the reception said we don't accept euro!! What a joke, where are these people leaving? In a world of their own. I will definately not be staying in this hotel again and neither any of the Maltese people... More

The catering in this place is out of this world. Excellent food, great value for money, great portion sizes and quite well served. The staff are friendly and reasonably competent. The accomodation is very poor. The floors creak badly, any movement next to or above your room will keep you awake. The kettle would only work if you held the... More

Stayed one night for a birthday party in the ballroom. Rather basic but all fairly straightforward. A faulty TV remote got sorted out immediately. The single bed (in a twin room) really was very narrow and could be a problem for some people, though I personally had a good night's sleep. As someone else has said, the floorboards were remarkably... More

Stayed at The Fairway for 1 night whilst attending a tribute night - which was a good night excellent value for money. The room was dated with creaky floorboards, no shower gel in the container on the wall in the bathroom, and a very poor shower, at best a mere dribble !! We didn't eat so cant comment on the... More

Booked in at 1900hrs on Sunday 10th August - the receptionist was the laziest I have ever come across in my life. After 4 attempts to gain entry to my booked room because she was incapable of giving me the correct key - I left and returned to my cousin's house 49miles down the M1 to Matlock. This receptionist has... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. However, the bed squeaked every time either of us moved, the smoke alarm was flashing all night, the door let a lot of light in from the hallway all night, the kettle looked a bit limescaly inside and the tv remote didn't have a cover over the batteries. It looks like it was... More
