We stopped for lunch. It is an old historic hotel bed and breakfast and has a restaurant. The specials were plentiful and priced about average. There was not enough staff for a holiday weekend, but they were very attentive.

We came to the restaurant on Sunday morning, July 5, 2014 at 9:30 am only to fine one young man with hand tremors who seated us after we got his attention. There were only 4 other people there sitting at a table with menus who had not ordered yet but looked like they were ready. The young man told us... More

Lynn & I had lunch with friends at the Fairplay Valiton Hotel recently. This was our first stop at this restaurant, but it won't be our last. Our server, Nicole (a 9th generation Coloradoan) , was friendly. She was also the new hotel manager and told us that the restaurant and hotel had only been open under the new management... More

If you have time to burn, don't care too much for the quality of your meal, but like quaint old surroundings, then this is the place for you. The hotel was built in 1873, and is quite a charmer in many ways, but continuing the restaurant operation in the present manner is a disservice.

Rather than waiting for a table at the Brown Burro, which we knew would be good, we went to the hotel restaurant. NEVER AGAIN. Two of us ordered fish and chips, two ordered the Mediterranean Salad, one hamburger and one Reuben. After 30 minutes the orders started coming out one at a time at 5 minute intervals! And the second... More

Come for lunch, your still be there for dinner. In an hour and a half we got four out of six meals, all of which closely rivaled McDonalds for quality. After watching several other people who arrived after us receive and consume their meals we decided it was time to leave. I think it would have been easier to learn... More

Sorry you had a bad experience. We cannot be responsible for your bad attitude upon arrival and cannot help you with any problems if we cannot even apologize because your insults are non stop. We do not claim to be a "fast food " restaurant . We are a small town here in Fairplay and have a relaxed, small town... More

Excellent food. They also have a piano player most nights. Beautiful, victorian building. Well worth a stop when in Fairplay.

I took three guests to dinner at Fairplay Valiton Hotel. I was very embarrassed. We were told no deep fried foods. We ordered pot roast and meatloaf. The food was room temperature, dry and had no flavor. The meat was horrible. Waitress did not ask why we didn't eat our food. We asked for bread and were given a few... More
