A friend and I stayed 2 nights here. And from the moment we walked through the door it felt welcoming and home like. Friendly people that are up for a chat, yet leave you alone when you want it. So helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone. But not someone who doesn't like hills, that hill is a pain... More

It's not often that an establishment exceeds expectations, but this is the case with the Fairman! The whole place was immaculate, with a large, comfortable living/dining area. The price was very reasonable, the breakfast adequate, beds comfortable, and our hostess was very helpful and friendly. It is within a 15 minute walk to all the best there is to see... More

I only stayed one night and wish I stayed longer! I had a room all to myself, and it was clean and full of light. Stella was very nice and friendly. Full complete kitchen. Location is an easy 15-minute walk to town. I'd definitely stay there again!

Stayed here with two friends and had the 4 person dorm to ourselves. The beds were fantastic and she has the best pillows I've ever used in a hostel! It's warm, clean, and breakfast is help yourself with a good selection of cereal, toast, and Eggs (very few places provide protein). She was super friendly and helpful. I would totally... More

The bedrooms and bathrooms etc were really nicely done and clean. Liam and Stella are also really kind and one of the best hosts you can find. The location is an easy walk to the main attractions though there's a slight hike. But the service, cleanliness, and hospitality makes it a great place to stay. I truly enjoyed my stay... More

A very rare find; this house is as I'd like my home to be... warm, cosy, pristinely clean throughout, super (cook yourself) breakfast, open coal fire at night + central heating, great atmosphere, great WiFi, very comfortable beds, lovely showers, great location - out of city yet only £3 taxi for 2 people, safe parking, well run / managed by...

The gf and I stayed here last weekend for a brief trip to the North, and it was absolutely lovely! The owners are very friendly, and Liam told us about an ancient (well, depending on your definition - it was largely rebuilt in the 19th century) roundfort just out of town. While lots of places will do that, he then... More

Where to start! Upon first arriving, you see it's a pretty bnb, very homely and the owners are incredibly friendly. The atmosphere is so comforting, we really felt at home. The room was bright, clean, the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! There is a kitchen that we were able to use as we pleased.... More

Fairman House was a lovely hostel to stay at. If you are looking for a party hostel this is not the place for you. I had the hostel all to myself for one night, and it was fantastic to have Liam and Stella stoke the fire for me and make sure I was comfortable - it was awesome to have... More
