We stayed at the Fairhaven Village Inn for two nights this week. The Inn appears old but it is relatively new....looking at their library you would think it was a heritage building.
The Inn is located in the centre of Fairhaven...we parked our car and walked...you are right in the centre of town.
A few people commented about the trains...yes we did hear them but it was fine. It appears that the trains (which are far enough away) have to toot their horns as they approach a crossing....some engineers were gentle with the horn in the middle of the nights...others may have taken delight in being loud..or they were just being careful that a car did not see and hear them. We are both sensitive and this was not a problem for either of us.
The staff, every one of them...went above and beyond to help us...and as they said...."I had many unusual requests"...each of the staff came through with flying colours in getting answers to my questions...they could not have been more helpful and informed....and I did give them difficult questions.
Oh and I almost forgot....breakfast is included...our fav. was the mixed berries and yoghurt . They offered waffles, toast, OJ, coffee tea etc....hard boiled eggsand I also appreciated that 24 hr. a day they have coffee and tea available in the library.
As others have suggested...not sure it is worth paying extra for the sea view but we did take the sea view room as we wanted the king bed.
