The Fairbank Hotel is a traditional English hotel in the very best sense. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere is upbeat yet calming. We stayed for just one night on our way to an apartment we had rented for a long weekend. We had dinner at the hotel and my dad has a dairy allergy and they... More

It's kind of on a road to nowhere so very quiet location. Short stroll from Crantock beach which is a gem. Welcome is warm, rooms are clean and well equipped and the breakfast is delicious. Rooms at the back have a view over the beach.

We are lucky with our 'road to nowhere' which is quiet, but actually leads to some of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall and easy access to the coastal path. Crantock beach is very special and just a short stroll from our front door with, as you say, stunning views of this lovely beach from the conservatory and bedrooms. Thank... More

Convenient location, plentiful parking, friendly and sociable owners, beautiful gardens and sea views from bar and breakfast areas. Comfiest bed and good hot shower. Good choice of breakfast and plentiful portions. Girlie plus: lots of cotton wool in the room!

Elaine & Paul Redd take excellent care of their guests. Sleeping rooms are comfortable. Food is excellent. Views at sunset are spectacular. Not far from the King Arthur area. Nice home-y feeling. Did not get down to the beach, but probably next time!
