Recently stayed there for 2 nights. Yes we paid as soon as we got there before seeing the room. Which i was not bothered about. We had been trying to book a hotel for days as we was going to an event in plymouth. All the hotels at plymouth were full or wanted £100 - £150 per night. As we... More

There was only one thing specifically wrong with our stay, which I will come to momentarily. But overall, it was as this review title says; just a little bit odd. The guy that checked us in was pleasant enough...but it was rather as if we were the first ever guests to stay! The whole process was 'umms' and 'ahhs' and... More

On arriving I was immediately asked if I want to pay, even before seeing our room. The atmosphere was not welcoming although I couldn't put my finger on the reason why. I had asked for a specific requirement regarding our room but was told after I'd paid that he had seen my request but was unable to provide it. Why... More

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.
