“Lucky last minute find for 2 nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

From a cold call to a warm welcome - very comfortable self contained unit, especially the luxurious bed. Expectation surpassed with bespoke breakfast choice served by the friendly, sociable and helpful hosts, Paul & Gill. Highly recommended and will certainly be staying again (this time by plan).

A warm welcome on arrival, good parking and just a short walk away from the town centre so no need to use the car for the rest of the stay.
Room as well as the rest of the b&b is spot on, excellent breakfast and good local knowledge from Gill and Paul.
We would be more than happy to to go back again and would recommend to anyone.... Nigel and kate

Nice welcome from Paul & Gill on arrival. Good car parking - very important in places such as Brixham. Rooms slightly small but very clean and bright. Excellent beds with high quality bedding. Ensuite pretty tight but well fitted out and plenty of towels etc supplied.
Need to order breakfast the night before - not really a problem. Breakfast, as many others have commented, is superb!! Very good choice and very well prepared and presented.
Only negative comment would be the front door lock. Very difficult to use. Small point but really should be fixed.

Our stay at Fair Winds was just perfect. Paul and Gill were the perfect hosts. The breakfasts were the best ever. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone. We were made very welcome and look forward to our next visit there.

This was our 3rd stay at Fair Winds. This time we stayed in the Self Catering Appartment. As soon as we arrived, Jill was there to welcome us, followed by Paul who soon helped by taking our luggage. Even though we were in the Appartment we were not going to miss out on Pauls wonderful breakfasts. As usual Gill is very helpful with advice and information on places to visit. All in all we had a relaxing wonderful holiday.

Myself and my husband stayed for a few nights. We were very happy there and relaxed. It was very homely and presented beautifully with the crisp fresh white bedding and cream carpets and wonderfully hot shower and modern high standard bathroom. Can highly reccommend this lovely bed and breakfast to everyone. Paul and Gill made us feel special and relaxed. The breakfast were delightful. The location is excellent. Great holiday.

We have just returned from our 16th stay at Fair Winds, and as always, we were made very welcome by Gill and Paul. Our room was lovely, clean, comfortable and quiet. It was a busy time of year for Gill and Paul, but as usual they kept everything running smoothly and efficiently.
Breakfasts excellent once again!
We look forward to our October visit.
