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.

We both had an excellent time at Fair Winds. Paul & Gill were wonderful hosts and gave us some great ideas for days out including local maps and potential recommendations for evening meals - they could not have been any more helpful. The rooms are stocked with luxury products you would not normally associate with a B&B. They are spotlessly... More

We both really enjoyed our time at Fair Winds. The breakfasts were amazing. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Paul and Gill were wonderful hosts. Would recommend this B and B to anyone. Bus stops just outside door with very frequent service so didn't need to take the car.

I'm not a lover of B&B's but out stay at Fair Winds has completely changed my mind we stayed there for 3 nights. The hospitality was so warm and friendly, the accommodation was very clean and extremely comfortable and the breakfasts were just something else! We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
