“Birthday Night Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I stayed at the Fayreness before with my school friends!
I had a birthday night away with my wife!
Once again the Fayreness did not let me down & my wife was really impressed!
On check-in the staff were really helpful and polite, we shown up to our room.
We had a sea view room; the room was a fair size with a lovely view!
The bar staff were also helpful and polite.

Room Tip: We had room 504 - Sea view! 0_0

Stayed the night on a wimp. It's a lovely hotel with outstanding views and friendly helpful staff. The dinner and breakfast were amazing. We have let friends know as you wouldn't know its there. We have booked our wedding so pleased with the place. I can't speak more highly.

We stayed for just 1 night as we were in the area out and about but the site of the Hotel was right near the beach (a bit difficult to initially find) but a wonderful stay.

Staff were helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The Hotel food is highly recommended. The included breakfast next day set us off for more sight seeing and was plentiful and great value for money. There are plenty of places to go and visit in the area which wasn't too busy with ample (free) parking spaces in the Hotel car park

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view at a only a small extra cost

We went here for a friends 'naming ceremony' and had a one night stay. the rooms were very spacious and pleasant, comfy bed, decent pub grub and friendly staff. Overall had a great evening, could not fault the location and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: the sea view room was lovely

We stayed for 5 nights, and never wanted to leave. The weather was perfect and being so close to the beach was magic. Who needs spain. The staff are excellent, so friendly and go out of there way for you. Wonderful managers called Jill and Alison, they were so much fun and always had a smile. It's a place we will be returning to.

We have travelled to many hotel world wide, and been impressed and disappointed. The little Fayreness was impressive, for a 3 star. We were provided with a large room, clean and tidy, staff extremely welcoming and friendly. Food a delight for the star rating. It does need a lick of paint, but you can see the place we well managed, organised and staff are happy. Best of British for a change. Well done to the Fayreness. Will recommend.

We stayed here last year and the only thing that impressed us was the room and the view, so we go foward a year (annivesary again) and what a treat. The bar food was excllent, the starter looked like a main! The room, amazingly clean. no flies in the lampshade, bathroom spotless, bed to stop you getting up, so comfortable. The staff, excellent service, polite and very helpful. I hope when they refurbish in the new year that they keep the staff. If you have a choice the sea view rooms are wonderful.

Room Tip: Sea view if possible.
