Stayed overnight here in the superior room in the courtyard and it was total bliss! The room is well equipped, perfectly laid out and is a real luxury. The bed is soooo comfy we struggled to get out of it. The bath and shower are equally good... In fact I couldn't decide which to use. Food in the restaurant I... More

The staff were very polite and helpful, we had a few rounds of drinks which we were able to put on a tab, which ran until checkout. the rooms were nice, clean with lovely... More

We had an evening meal here and then the day afterwards a funeral tea, the food was gorgeous and the atmosphere pleasant - the only thing we'd say is that some of the locals at the bar (not the staff) were unwelcoming and a bit rude - only thing that let down an otherwise lovely experience

Spent two nights in the superior room in the courtyard .The food and accommodation are very good and the staff very pleasant .There is a ramp to the room but the ramp can be hard to get to across the courtyard and the walk in shower has a step up to it and no hand rail which can be awkward... More

We ate lunch and really enjoyed the food. Freshly prepared and to a high standard. Even the olive and bread taster to start was unique in its taste and presentation. Well worth a detour to eat here. Recomended.

We were in room 1, a lovely double at the front of the building which looked newly decorated and was spotless. I have never heard of a 'pillow menu' before but the ones we were given were soft a fluffy and very comfortable. The real coffee and cafetiere in the room are a lovely touch as were the chic chip...

After eating here earlier this year we decided to try the accommodation too. So pleased we did! On arrival we were welcomed by the extremely friendly staff and shown to our room in the courtyard. Absolutely beautiful. The bed was humongous, 2 queen size beds together and sooooooooooo comfy. We had a bottle of wine , fresh fruit, cafetiere coffee,... More

This is obviously a popular place to eat and we were glad we had booked ahead for the evening meal. The staff were friendly, service very good and the food excellent. The rooms were well laid out, tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable with everything we needed, including a hairdryer which worked. Tea and coffee were of good quality and included... More

Having stayed before at the Fairfax we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the perfectly equipped and very comfortable suite. The furniture, decor and cleanliness is first class & the attention to small detail, e.g. Extra towels, good toiletries, free water, fresh fruit etc. add to the stay. Dinners and breakfasts have all been excellent with... More
