“A wonderful stay in a faultless establishment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

We spent five nights in a lovely double room which was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The breakfast choices were lovely and cooked too perfection.
The owners of Fairways are friendly, attentive and really care that their guests are happy with their stay.
We would recommend Fairways to anyone (providing that a booking we had recommended did not stop us from getting a room!).
We are about to book a return visit for next year!

Room Tip: Our room was lovely, quiet and spotlessly clean.

Thanks for the Review Ralph. We enjoyed having you and Lesley stopping with us and hearing each day how the 40's Week-end was going. After all your dancing, has Lesley recovered?
We look forward to you stopping with us in the future.

We had a wonderful stay. The room was spotless, and has everything you need. The sheets smell really nice too! Excellent breakfast range - with an option of Salmon and scrambled eggs too. 10-15 min walk to torbay. Recommended.

Fairways was very clean throughout. The room was warm and the bed comfortable. Breakfast food was good.Breakfast was served between 8-9 which made a weekend lie in rather difficult.

Thanks for the Review Sally and for any recommendations you have made to family and friends. I guess lie-in times are personal as most of our guests find our breakfast times fit in with their schedule just fine. The final serving time of 9am is geared towards allowing guests to enjoy our Award Winning breakfasts at a leisurely pace and us to have Rooms ready for new arrivals. Hope this helps.

My wife, son and I stayed for a single night at Fairways and had a very enjoyable time.

Chris and Janet were there to greet us on arrival - Chris then took us through an extremely comprehensive check in and facilities briefing - goodness knows how I would have managed to turn the tv on without his expert guidance!

Our famliy room was on the first floor and was well appointed with a comfy double bed and single for the little one. Everything was spotlessly clean and there were really nice touches in the room such as a pot of cotton buds and a small bowl of mint humbugs, so we were well covered in case of sweetie withdrawal or ear cleaning emergencies.

The room had pretty much everything you could need - bathroom and shower were again spotless, soaps and towels were of a good quality and the toilet roll was luxuriously quilted. There was freeview, a DVD player and TV, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities and a DAB radio with iPod dock - handy for recharging. The bedside coasters were very heavy duty and good quality, something I can attest to personally having dropped one on my face in bed.

We enjoyed a quiet evening in the expansive conservatory area having returned back from the local curry house personally recommended by Chris as a favourite - and very good it was too.

Location was quite central with a pleasant 10 minute walk to the beachfront and a further 10 minutes into the town centre.

Best of all was the fabulous breakfast hosted by Chris in the morning; no wonder it has received an award. Everything was of a really high standard and you can tell it's a real labour of love for Chris and Janet to send everyone off in the morning with a full stomach.

We'll certainly be back to use Fairways as a base for Torbays visits in the future.

My partner and I stayed for four nights at the Fairways this week and we could not fault it, it was so very clean, it was spotless, Chris and Janet were lovely, friendly, polite and helpful, we could not fault the service they provided, it was excellent. The breakfast was absolutely perfect, We would recommend the Fairways and would certainly stay there again. Also parking area spacious. Thank you Chris and Janet for making our stay lovely and comfortable.
