Stayed here for one night. Owner was very friendly with good local knowledge. We were the only ones there at the time so nice and quiet. Paid to have the breakfast, which was lovely. Would stay here again.

We had a lovely stay at Fairways. We were made to feel very welcome and Chris was incredibly accomodating. Fairways was just a short walk away from the town centre, and we found a row of shops just 2 mins down the road. We would recommend avoiding the steak house just down the road (we wsited 45mins for a table... More

Stayed here one night having been to a wedding, very comfortable bed and everything you could need in the room. Walked into town in 5 mins. Owners were lovely and friendly and let us park in their car park for as long as we needed.

Room was warm enough for my fiance after adjusting the thermostat (and she is hard to satisfy when it comes to room temperature). Never stayed in a family run bed and breakfast we normally go...

Spotlessly clean throughout. Towels were lovely and big and shower fine. Bed was really comfortable, lovely to have a duvet instead of sheets! Continental breakfast was great, plenty... More

I stayed here with my elderly father overnight. The owners were really lovely and tolerant of an elderly person. They went and organised a gluten free breakfast for me and the room was immaculate. The Hotel has a five star rating for hygiene, which I found very reassuring, working in this area. Great location, on a main road if that... More
