My husband and I stayed for one night in this hotel, The room was very clean with on-suite bathroom, lovely clean sheets and towels. The breakfast was excellent value for the money with table cloths and waiter service. The reception staff very pleasant. There is a bar and entertainment down stairs We would certainly stay there again.

Visited recently and found that the food was excellent and plentiful, the staff very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms small but adequate, the main thing being that everything was sparkling clean and the maid service was adequate. The only criticism is that the corridors could do with an up-grade.

hotel is in excellent position on sea front. rooms and décor could do with updating, certain members of staff need to go on courses on how to be sociably accepted with guests. waiting and cleaning staff very friendly and helpfull

The Fairhaven is actualy three buildings connected by long corridors and short staircases to make up for differences in the floor heights of the buildings. make sure you book early to get a room near the lift if you have mobility problems. also bear in mind there are five steps up to the front door of reception. A very good... More
