Enjoyed a first class Sunday lunch at this hotel and at a great price. It really is fantastic value and as the hotel is a small family run one the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I really recommend it if you want a decent Sunday roast with the family.

Lovely hotel tucked away in the countryside, lots of walks although we stayed early November and the weather was blowing a gale we were very,very, comfortable. Everyone was very welcoming. We had BB and Evening meal which was a good decision the food was cooked to perfection.The plus side for us was that it was dog friendly

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Fairwater Head Hotel on one of their mid-week breaks. We wanted a peaceful mini break in the country and we weren't disappointed! The hotel delivers on all fronts: the service was excellent, with the staff being friendly and approachable: they just want you to enjoy your time. Being a small hotel... More

I was looking for somewhere special to spend a week away with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I was so pleased we chose the Fairwater Head Hotel as the whole experience was perfect. Our period room was sunny and cosy, the meals were absolutely delicious, and the friendly staff were incredibly helpful. We left feeling relaxed and totally... More

A one night stay for us and our 2 terriers. Very comfortable. Very welcoming. The dogs were MOST impressed. The food was excellent and the waiter was a delight. We would most certainly return and the dogs want to go and live there. Our breakfast couldn't be faulted.

The reason I booked this hotel is because it is dog friendly and I was travelling with my dog. The hotel staff are very friendly. My room was ok. The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom was tired. The gardens are very pretty and it would be lovely to be able to sit out in better weather. I was... More

We stayed at Fairwater Head as part of a tour. This is an old farmhouse that has been expanded into a hotel and restaurant. It is remote so don't expect to be able to pop out to the local pub! The main building is elegant, but the guest rooms are in a recent addition that is not up to the... More

We had a 2 night stay here, our second visit. It is lovely and quiet and dog friendly. There are lovely views from the restaurant but our table was set behind a large brick pillar so we couldn't see much. We didn't have a meal but had delicious sandwiches. However we did feel uncomfortable at the owners attitude to our... More
