“Good value and clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We found this hotel to be very reasonable, clean and comfortable and fairly well situated for the town and night life. The breakfast was not in the hotel but 200 meters down the road in pub for which we had tokens to give them. On the up side of this was that it was available until 11:30 ideal for us, as we had a late night. On the down side for the hotel was, it was rather noisy, i dont think i would like to have a romantic weekend there or take the family but if its a cheap and clean place to stay your after then its ideal.

It is difficult to mark this Hotel as anythign other than average, but it is superb value for the money. It must be Marmite, as other reviews hate it - but how can you hate a hotel with perfectly clean bedding and a comfortable place to get some shut-eye for this kind of price?
The first chappy on the reception desk and bar was really helpful, cheerful and polite. About 9pm an older fella came on. Everything was too much for him so we wandered a few yarsd to local bar. The rooms, well the bedding was as clean (if not cleaner) than any hotel of any grade I have ever stayed in, but here were a few minor points for the most fastideous. But if it matters pay a proper price and get what you pay for. Great value all round.

My friend and I walked up and enquired if they had a room available, there was one left, but it was a 6 bed room, but as no-one had booked it they gave it to us for £45 (which worked out to just £22.50 each!) Staff were helpful, service was not excellent but then you get what you pay for. Room was clean and spacious. Would stay again.

We are a young couple who decided to stay at the fairmount hotel this september as a one night getaway. We got a really good deal: £27.50 for the room for one night!!
The room we had was on the top floor, it was basic but very clean and comfortable.The basin and toilet were very modern, but the shower let the bathroom down abit. The only problems to note about he hotel are the noise from the road, and the staff (only those who we met, not necesarrily a good representation of the staff as a whole) were useless and had no customer service skills.
For that price though, you really couldnt ask for any more! Seriously good value for money: would recommend it to anyone on a budget!

Room Tip: Ask for one that doesnt face the road

Having got such a good deal for a triple room, I was a bit dubious about what it would be like, but defintely not disappointed. We had a large bay-windowed room and despite 3 beds there was plenty of space for us to move around. It was clean, well looked after and bright and airy. They obviously take pride in the hotel as there was a maintenance man working in one of the rooms when we got there. They were very helpful about places to eat - which we ignored and suffered for later. We will listen to them next time!
One downside was the location of the telly - not directly in front of the bed so we had to sit askew - how picky am i :-)
Plenty of offstreet parking, though there is a charge - still cheaper than town
Would definitely go back

Room Tip: Worth asking for a room at the back if you like a sleep in as the road in front gets quite busy from...

Booked this for a girlee night in bournemouth. Cheap and cheerful. Was pleasantly surprised to say the least, we stayed in number 17 (right at the top) which mabye after a night out wasn't the best! Room was bright and clean, was even more suprised to find we had a bathroom and shower. Perfect for a couple of nights stay mabye more it would be too much. Entrance could have been better as the guy at reception was quite rude when I asked to check in! overall a good hotel especially for a night-life getaway as there is no curfew. Would visit again.

Room Tip: stairs are quite steep especially after a few. So try and get rooms closer to the ground floor if po...
