Lovely place, great stay. Owner called the following day about us having left an item in the room and made arrangements for collection. Sleep quality was affected by other guests in room upstairs leaving early.

I am so glad you had a great stay non-withstanding the noisy early departure of the other guests. Fortunately departures as early as that come few and far between and fortunately most guests are more considerate. More

Fairview is a beautiful place to stay. The historical house, the tasteful decor and the beautiful garden bring a lot of atmosphere to the place. But it is the warm welcome and the generous hospitality of hosts which make this place stand out and make you want to come back, any time you will visit George again. We definitely will!

We had a great stay at the Fairview Historic Homestead. Philda and Des were very friendly, helpful and accommodating as were all the staff. Our room (self catering flat) was very clean and spacious, it more than met our needs during our stay. The pool and garden areas are lovely and we really enjoyed breakfast everyday - very tasty and... More

This historic homestead is absolutely gorgeous and has been very lovingly restored by Desmond & Philda. We had a most beautiful room which was the Honeymoon Suite (although we have been married for 26 years!), and it is furnished throughout with beautifully chosen, but very usable antiques. We had tea and biscuits on the back patio with Philda, Desmond and... More

All thanks to the friendly people, very hospitable and they go out an extra mile to ensure that we are as comfortable as possible. The room I was in was beautiful with... More

A wonderful stay in a beautiful place that marries historical significance with friendly hospitality. The room, with personalized name plate, was quite magnificent, complete with its own fireplace, chaise lounge and 4 poster bed. The staff were friendly and helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending Fairview to anyone looking for a stay that is very much high end... More

We overnighted here and wished we had stayed longer. The room was great although the bed was a little small for us - my wife snd I are both over 6'2" - but thay is certainly not a problem unique to Fairview for us. The venue is beautiful and we had a wonderful breakfast. Despite what some of these reviews... More
