“Brilliant Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We celebrated my sisters birthday (2 x couples) at this hotel weekend of 28/6/13. We use to visit Crantock in Cornwall as a family and had some lovely memories as children enjoying our summer holidays there. We choose the Fairbank Hotel due to it's location of Crantock village and reviews. We all enjoyed the lovely comfortable bedrooms and good breakfast we received as well as the great hospitality that Paul and Elaine greeted us with. Nothing was any trouble to them we really felt at ease and enjoyed our short stay there. We want to book again next year (August 2014) and bring our other sister as a special birthday surprise. Definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to visiting it again next year. Stuart,Sally,Gavin & Della

Room Tip: Sea view bedrooms facing crantock bay beach - beautiful !

We have two young children & looking for adjoining hotel rooms. We had a lovely double room with a corridor that led to ensuite bathroom with a bath and another room with bunkbeds. It was perfect! Rooms are very clean & functional, breakfasts were great and owners couldn't have been more helpful. Hotel is set in a lovely location. The owners are very children friendly & were happy to accommodate breakfast requests etc. The nearby Crantock beach is stunning. This is within walking distance as is a lovey pub and costal walk. This is a stunning part of Cornwall and this is the perfect place to stay. Delightful holiday!

It is most gratifying to know that our guests enjoy their stay with us. Your children were a credit to you, well behaved and polite and so obviously enjoyed their holiday. We would be very happy to welcome you all back sometime in the future. Thank you for taking the time to make your comments and glad you liked the rooms.

We spent two nights here on a tour of the south west of UK, visiting from USA. A lot of what you experience at a B&B depends on the character and personalities of the people who run it. We found these people to be extraordinarily good at what they do with the added bonus of being lovely people. The hotel itself is small and quite plain. If you're looking for chintz and bone china this isn't it. If you're looking for something grand ditto. Understated is the name of the game here. Warm, comfortable, welcoming, friendly, attentive without being intrusive, they honestly have it down to a fine art. I've never encountered such a relaxed, unhurried, simply charming atmosphere in any place I have ever stayed. We arrived as usual exhausted from trying to see/do too much and were earlier than expected- no big deal. Went up and crashed on the bed then took stock of the quite magnificent view of a somewhat surly Cornish coast. Again, if you're looking for heart-stopping beaches I think you could start somewhere else besides the UK but understated, moody, full of atmosphere, wild and unspoiled by development- bingo. Huge window in the room, lying on the bed looking out at the sea- total Zen. (Weather not great while we were there)
We ordered afternoon tea - scones and clotted cream of course ( we were on a scones and cream odyssey) which we had downstairs again looking out on that beautiful view. We ate dinner there both nights, fresh, local, home cooking served with unassuming friendliness. Cornish strawberries and clotted cream to die for. Our hosts quietly padding about in bare feet serving beautiful food- another zen moment and to top it off Adele playing on the soundtrack while we are looking out at that moody sea just took it to a whole other level.
We did the coastal walk to Holywell which was a joy even in poor weather. Stopped at the tiny pub for a drink and walked back to Crantock.
Wonderful, family run hotel- two year old grand-daughter served us our breakfast toast- what a delight .We would go back in a heartbeat.

The hotel is a great base with a beautiful beach and quaint town just a short stroll away. The view of the bay from our room was amazing.

I did not realise that this hotel was only a 2 star until I was told by the owners. It may be small but it is the best 2 star we have stayed in! The owners couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant. The hotel is clean and bright and for its class, I would highly recommend it for both families and couples.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Crantock beach is certainly a beautiful beach and has been voted in the top 10 recently in 2 separate polls. We are lucky to have it so close. Hope to welcome you back here again in the future.

We stayed for four nights at beginning of June. Lovely room, breathtaking views of sea, welcoming and caring hosts. Elaine and Paul were so kind , nothing was any trouble.
If we ever get back to Cornwall then this would be our place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Kelsey on the first floor with two windows looking out to sea.

We stayed here over the Bank Holiday weekend. We were lucky with the weather over the weekend and made the most of the hotel's excellent location close to the beach. On the Sunday we took a walk to a beach a bit further away on Elaine's recommendation. Paul and Elaine were so welcoming and run a lovely, clean and comfortable hotel - nothing was too much trouble for them! Great breakfast. Will definitely try and return when we go back in August!
