3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having stayed three years ago we wanted to return, as our previous stay was so pleasant. Quite a lot had changed internally and we agreed it was all for the good, but was restricted to the lounge and restaurant area. We were showed to our room which ironically happened to be the same room as we stayed in three years... More

We booked to stay here last minute for a short trip away with our dog. We had a very warm welcome and were shown to our room in the garden wing. Great size room, comfy bed, clean bathroom and a lovely view across the garden and countryside beyond. Breakfast each day was excellent. Couldn't fault it at all. All the... More

We found this hotel by telling the Sat nav to take us us to the nearest one after the fog coming down and being soaking wet...we were on a motorcycle. The hotel was deep in the Devon countryside, down leafy lanes. We were given a lovely welcome at this elegant country house. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff are... More

I stayed with friends after visiting Lyme Regis. The rooms are comfortable and spacious enough with lovely white fluffy towels. The bathrooms are a little tired and are carpeted. We had a warm welcome and enjoyed relaxing in the lounge with a local sparkling wine before dinner. There is wifi in the public spaces. The food was well presented, fresh... More

We stayed for the night with two other couples and found everything to be perfect. Very high standards throughout the entire hotel. Nice room, perfect view and very quiet and peacful. The hotel has 16 rooms, a comfortable bar and restaurant. We did bed and breakfast, which was buffet style all with a good choice. Will definitely return when we... More

Whenever my husband and I holiday near Hawkchurch, we always make sure we book dinner at Greenfields. We found the Fairwater Head hotel by chance when staying nearby at self-catering accommodation and the restaurant was recommended to us. It's an absolute gem. There's just such a lovely ambiance about it. Dining is relaxed and unhurried and we especially loved sitting... More

We stayed here for a long weekend last weekend and had a lovely time. The management and staff were really friendly and helpful and, particularly if you have a little child or a dog (we have both), it's a great place to stay with lovely gardens and a trampoline. Dinner was good too. If I'm honest we weren't that inspired... More

Really sweet and friendly hotel. We booked as a stopover on our way through to the coast and were delighted with both the service, the staff and the hotel itself. Fantastic to be able to bring our dog with us who loved the treats left for him in our room. Keep doing what you are doing. Throughly recommend. A special... More
