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!

Have just returned from an excellent week at The Fairbank Hotel in Crantock. The hotel provided superb facilities, brilliant home cooking and accommodation. The hosts, Elaine and Paul were both very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. Superior breakfasts and a great choice of evening meal. The rooms were of a high standard, especially the super power showers! Nothing... More

The Fairbank Hotel ticks all the boxes. Friendly owners, Elaine and Paul, take great care in looking after their guests, and are always on hand with local knowledge and advice on the best places to visit. The food is superb, cooked to order, and the menu changes everyday with a variety of choices, always including a vegetarian option. The hotel... More

Had a lovely holiday at this hotel. Paul and Elaine were really nice. Breakfast was superb and the two evening meals we had were excellent. The hotel is spotless. We both slept well, probably all the walking we did! All we can say is that should we visit Cornwall again this is where we will stay. The beach is only... More

This was our 4th stay at the Fairbank and we hope to return again next year. Once again the service and welcome was 5 * and the views and location as beautiful as we remembered. Much attention was paid to detail but always in a non intrusive manner. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely stay:)

We stopped at the hotel last weekend and had a family room with my 3 children. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the facilities were good. The position of the hotel in relation to the fabulous beach at crantock is fantastic. The village also has two very good pubs for meals, The Albion and The cornishman.

The hotel is really lovely, in a fantastic location, and Elaine & Paul are just really nice friendly hosts. Our room was "Trevose" and had spectacular views over Crantock Beach and beyond. The room was beautifully presented with everything you could wish for. Breakfast and Dinner were delicious. This is Crantocks "Fifteen". The lovely bar is well stocked and the... More
