We stayed for three nights at Fair Winds. We found our room to be comfortable with everything we could of needed. We are used to travelling and usually stay in hotels, so it was nice to have the personal touch of Paul and Gill. Our breakfast was cooked freshly at an agreed time, everything was cooked perfectly and was delicious... More

Spent 2 nights here over valentines. Perfect location for Brixham and Dartmouth. Breakfasts were amazing, particularly the pancakes! Would stay again. Make sure you take a car over to Dartmouth on the ferry. Useful to have it so you can go away from Dartmouth to investigate!

Jill and Paul were fantastic hosts. They made us feel at home on first meeting. The room was perfect (clean, comfortable and warm). The breakfast was the best we have ever had! (Hats off to Paul). We will be definitely staying with you again. Thank you both for making our weekend break perfect! Jenny and Andy

What a perfect stay. We were greeted on arrival and made very welcome with tea and biscuits. The room was immaculate,clean and very comfortable. Paul and Gill made us feel like we'd known them for years. They were keen to help us with their local knowledge of restaurants and places of interest. If we visit again we would definitely be...

Jill and Paul were great hosts and gave us welcomed advice on "watering holes". Fairwinds was immaculate, our bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were to die for. We would return tomorrow if we could. Thank you both, Doug and Brenda x

Stayed here for two nights with friends, the guest house is very clean and tidy and the breakfast is excellent. Cannot really find any fault with Fair Winds apart from one minor niggle which is very trivial, the Heinz & HP sauce bottles had been refilled with inferior quality sauces (faded labels a giveaway) apart from that the hosts were...

We are really glad you enjoyed your stay. With regard to your comment on our use of inferior tomato and brown sauce I am afraid your amateur detective work falls way short of the mark. It is a perfectly acceptable practice to refill the sauce bottles which are cleaned thoroughly first but we only ever use Heinz Tomato And HP... More

Despite the fact that we were turning up quite late (21:00) The owners were very pleased to welcome us, leaving us a space on the drive for our arrival and being there to greet us when we finally arrived. Room had been recently renovated and had some quite nice features. Bathroom was a comfortable size, but could have done with... More

We stayed at Fair Winds 8th-12th September for our Honeymoon. Paul greeted us on arrival and checked us in. We chose the superior double when booking direct with Paul as it is actually a self contained one bedroom flat, with a little kitchenette but based on a bed and breakfast rate so we were able to join the other guests...
