We stayed at Fair Winds 15th to 18th of August for my Birthday. We found Paul & Jill very helpful and friendly, giving us tips on eateries and places to visit.... Drawing on other comments I read here this evening, I can only say that I feel if you do encounter problems with a stay away, you should bring these... More

We booked the Sundowner suite which proved to be a good decision as it is above average size, light and airy and is situated at the rear and you cannot hear the noise of the busy main road. We were greeted by Paul and Gill who made us welcome with a drink and homemade biscuits. The breakfast menu is varied... More

We booked three nights at Fair Winds. Paul and Gill met us at the door when we arrived, introduced themselves and made us feel very welcome. The room was very clean, very comfortable and well furnished. There was a very good choice of food at breakfast, I had full English and thoroughly enjoyed it and of course there was the... More

Went to Fair Winds for few days convalescence after illness. Our room, Santa Ana, ground floor front, was described as "King Room" but we found it cramped and stuffy in the Summer heat with intrusive road noise when the windows were opened. We would not agree that this room is suitable for people with limited mobility. It would not accommodate... More

Thank you for your review. My apologies. You did request decaf on your booking form but due to personal circumstances ( see response to davebolton4 review 2 reviews down. These guests were here at the same time. ) this was overlooked. It does say on our web site that this room is suitable for people with limited mobility. This is... More

This nice guest house in Brixham is a good place to stay for a seaside break. Clean, comfortable rooms and plenty of choice for breakfasts which are hearty enough to keep you going for most of the day. For something different try the buttermilk pancakes, really good. The road is really busy so it is good that there is enough... More

We are sorry you did not have an entirely satisfactory stay with us at Fair Winds. My wife's mother died suddenly the week before you were due and her funeral was during your stay. We had no choice but to honour all of our bookings. My wife was professional enough to smile and be pleasant to all guests , including... More

Absolutely perfect B&B, friendly & welcoming owners, large & comfortable room, top class breakfasts, short walk from the town centre so no need to drive in & pay for parking. Room rates are very reasonable. We will be staying there again.
