We spent two nights at Fairways thanks to a Groupon deal - £99 two nights b and b and evening meal one night! – the Hotel was in a pleasant location overlooking the sea , although our room didn't unless you really craned your neck out of the window…., that’s not a complaint as we didn't expect a sea view being Groupon cheapskates! - it was nicely decorated with plenty of room in the bedroom but the shower room was a bit of a squeeze, both tidy and clean. The heating wasn't on when we arrived but not a problem as they left a convection heater ready so we just turned that on and didn't complain, next day the heating was on full blast so was plenty cosy enough. There was some parking next to the hotel but plenty of room on the road opposite, not sure if it would be a problem at the height of the holiday season but it wasn't for us when we went in May
We decided to have the full on evening meal first night and were very impressed at the quality of food and speed of service, we both took the opportunity to have the fillet steak, neither of us had had steak for many many years – long memories of the tough T Bones from Bernie’s had put us off, but we were not disappointed – it was superb as was the rest of our meal, the Breakfast was also very nice
The bar was a nice place to be, big bonus for me as a real ale enthusiast was they had Doombar on tap – heaven!
All the staff were friendly and efficient so absolutely no complaints there either.
I'm reviewing this as a Groupon user so to us it was a real bargain, but I probably wouldn't have gone if I’d have to pay full price – that said Fairways was a pleasant hotel that would tick all your boxes if you were paying the going rate
