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

I first went to the fairways last month and have now been 3 times. Massive portions of food for little prices. The two for one meal that takes place is brilliant. You get HUGE portions and I mean huge portions (especially the pizza) and it costs less than £10 for both mains. Desserts are really tasty as well. The drinks... More

I stayed here with a group of twenty people who thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The staff were hospitable and extremely helpful in arranging transport. Secondly the rooms were large, clean and speaking on behalf of the group we all had a decent nights kip. Most importantly, the hotel was extremely fair priced. The plus points for this hotel is the... More
