We cannot praise this hotel enough. It should definitely have more stars. Beautiful tasteful decor throughout, lovely comfortable bed, huge fluffy towels, we really felt pampered. The evening meal and the breakfast were faultless. A warm welcome too for our little whippet who had his own little treats, and his own doggy towel. Lovely staff, a real find, to be... More

Had a lovely break. Just what we needed to recharge the batteries. Peaceful. Idyllic setting. Great location for visiting Lyme Regis, Jurassic coast and east Devon. Nothing too much trouble. Lovely breakfast cooked to order. This was our third visit but certainly won't be our last.

Perfect cuisine, perfect room, perfect, glorious gardens,... More

A typical English hotel, very welcoming with lovely views, the room was of good size with an exceptional bathroom. A good breakfast was served, leaving you full but wanting more because of the taste. Will certainly book here again, even though there is a relaxed pet policy there was certainly no sign of pet hair. Well done Fairwater Head Hotel

We only stayed for one night but it was lovely. Finding a decent hotel that accepts dogs is not always easy but this hotel exceeded our expectations, with towels for the dogs (to wipe their feet) in the rooms and a handful of treats too. Our house doesn't smell of dogs so it was a delight on arrival to discover... More

Had a two night stay - very comfortable bedrooms & lounges. Restaurant & bar area are very nice - with amazing views from the windows / terrace. Nothing too much trouble - chef offering to do something special as vegetarian. Smashing wine list for a small hotel! Very friendly staff - and if you're a dog owner the hotel is... More

Staff were very friendly and the food was great. However, the room frankly had a stale, unpleasant odour and the wifi would not connect on any of my three devices. Also the shower would produce nothing but boiling hot water and there was no iron (something I have had in every hotel room before). None of these negatives were particularly... More

We have stayed at the Fairwater Head four times. Each time we are made very welcome. The rooms are very comfortable, the food is outstanding and the staff are always extremely helpful. It is in a very quiet location with wonderful views especially from the dining room. There is an intimate bar area and on a warm evening drinks can... More

Stayed here four or five times in late 2014. It is a delightful place, family run, warm, welcoming and comfortably furnished. The owner is charming as is the restaurant manager and all the staff we encountered worked hard and were very engaging. The rooms are very quiet, comfortable and the food is excellent (belly pork is especially good). Super breakfasts... More
