Nice enough hotel, but room was showing signs of wear and tear. No wifi which was a bit of a nuisance. Light in toilet was a noisy buzz. Breakfast was a bit of a disaster. Had poached eggs which were not cooked thoroughly and toast was cold. Noted the staff handling food on different table. Also got butter packets one... More

Having read a review on google maps which nearly scared us off, we found this hotel quite pleasant to stay in, the location is excellent with just a short walk to pubs and shops etc. I must admit the bedrooms are a dated and not the easiest to find as this must have been added onto at least three times...

I have visited the Fairhaven Hotel on a number of occasions over the last few years and have always stayed in a single room. The staff were, as usual, very helpful and friendly and go out of their way to assist. On my most recent stay, in March 2015, I saw that the hotel had recently undergone some investment and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my daughter and her partner. Their room was quite small and far. The majority of rooms in this hotel are internal and look out ponto internal squares so there is no view. We had a room at the front overlooking the beach/esplanade. This room was light, large with a superb view (at extra cost)... More

We booked this hotel only a few weeks ago as a last minute decision. The hotel staff were really kind and helpful. The hotel is quite big and to find our room was like being in a maze. The breakfast wasn't the biggest and the waiting staff are run off their feet trying to deal with every table. The walls... More

My room was entered whilst I was out in the evening and also when I was getting out of the shower. Room quite shabby, bed was comfy. Breakfast was ok, but staff not very friendly. Felt that room was too expensive.

Booked this hotel through booking.com for my husband and I to stay in the night before the Weymouth Half Marathon. Day before I got a very rude email from "Sally" saying they'd tried to contact me several times to no response..... This was the first I'd heard from them! Despite having my booking confirmation email, I supposedly hadn't paid and... More
