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

Appears a little dated but clean, comfortable and great value. Modern bathroom with hot water and good pressure. Lovely bath sheets. Good choices for breakfast. Car parking very limited so need to book. Great location. Will use again.

The hotel does special deals for holidays by coach for senior citizens. The room was basic and a little depressing and in dire need of a makeover. Ultimately you get what you... More

When we opened the door to the stair case there was a heavey smell of fags, in Flat 2 it was, to say the least, antiquated, the bath and wash basin were unbelievably poor, the kitchen besides being ancient had a smell in it which can only be described as nauseous. The rooms were clean and tidy but the fittings... More

The hotel appeared to be empty but at breakfast every table was full. where had all these people been hiding??? It was a very... More

Was not looking for comfort just a place to crash after a night on the town. I have stayed at a lot of Weymouth B&Bs and for price this was on a par with them. In fact just booked another weekend. Rooms dated, breakfast cheap but its only a place to sleep beach cleaning and birds permitting.
