We stayed at the Fairmont for 1 night in July. We stayed in a Fairmont room on the ground floor. The resort lobby is beautiful, high ceilings and a fireplace in very small restaurant. Our room was in the megalong wing, as we walked through the doors to the lifts we were faced with a horrible 1980’s wallpaper and decor, as well as the lifts being very old and scary to catch. Lucky when we entered the room it had jumped about 30 years ahead of the walkway. I believe the room had recently been renovated, it had a king size bed (2 beds pushed together) a new lcd tv, small table with chairs and 2 small lounges. There was also a large wardrobe with a mini bar and safe in it. The bathroom unfortunately had not been renovated and was quite old with a bath/shower – although there was plenty of hot water so you can’t complain. The only bad thing with the room would of had to be the lighting, there was no actual lights, they were all lamps which made the room quite dark.
We went for a walk around the grounds- very run down, the games room had old arcade games from the 90’s, the outdoor pool looked dirty, although it is winter that could be why, but it would have been nice if it was maintained a bit better. The indoor pool was nice as well as the gym.
We ate dinner at the restaurant, it is very small and more like a bar. There is a beautiful fire place along the window, yet as we were eating dinner we could not really see it which was a shame. The food was average..but you got what you paid for, it was very cheap compared to the restaurants in Leura. The location is good, it is a 5 min drive from the 3 sisters.
Overall the Fairmont have done well with renovating the rooms, yet someone needs to renovated the rest of the resort- little things like the lift can make a big difference. Also the restaurant has so much potential- extending it, putting more tables and replacing the chef could make it when of the best restaurants in leura with views over the valley, even having high tea on a Sunday there would be lovely.
