Needs redecorating quite badly and the rooms were boiling hot. They did provide a fan in the room. Bathrooms are functional. The breakfast they provide that you pay extra for is okay.... Not to a high standard but you get what you pay for. Some of the staff looked a bit down in the dumps...! Okay if you just literally... More

Visited today for a meal with a friend. It was very quiet, which was very unexpected. Very short wait for food. When the food came it was lovely. Well presented and tasted lovely. We both had the hot dog, which took a while to choose from the vast menu. Will definitely be visiting again.

For the second time, we stayed at The Fairway. The first being almost twelve months prior for another family break in the area. Again, we can have no complaints. The price is very reasonable. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The evening food is very nice (we can't comment on breakfast) and the bar/restaurant is well furnished. The soft play... More

Very basic and OK for the money. I was booked room only, so i didn't eat there. The rooms where a bit on the warm side, with only a small desk fan available. The man on the desk at night, was extremely rude. The manner in the way he spoke, was short and discourteous.

Having eaten and reviewed The Fairway before we consider it a decent place to eat and have done so on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, today was not as good as it has been in the past. The first issue was that the post mix was 'off' meaning no draught soft drinks were available. The poor girls serving on the bar speared... More

My partner and I stayed the evening of Saturday 6th August, as we were attending a wedding nearby. The room was acceptable enough, though could do with a bit of refurbishment (the carpet in our room looked like it had remnants of chewing gum stuck to it) and the shower took a while to heat up to a lukewarm level....

Called in on the way home from visiting Calypso Cove in Barnsley. Arrived around two thirty , place was quiet inside as most people were outside. Table and the place was clean and plenty of places to cater for the five of us. Staff were friendly and well presented. We were very hungry after a few hours swimming. Pick your... More

We booked a family room and breakfast through late rooms. Staff refused to honour the breakfast. They were completely immovable on it, despite admitting we overpaid for the breakfast, saying therefore the payment was for the room only, despite the invoice being broken down and in reception they were advertising the price of the room for less than we paid....
