The hotel is immaculately clean and decorated, including our room with massive bed!! The breakfast was very well cooked with top ingredients, there was also freshly cooked bread, croissants, muffins, fruit, yoghurts, cereals etc. Lovely... More

The moment we arrived for our first stay at this fantastic hotel we were welcomed like old friends. We were given a family room on the ground floor which was more than adequate for the two of us! The room was spacious with plenty of storage space, well furnished with good quality furniture. Everything was spotlessly clean and well cared... More

We were recommended to the Fernbank Hotel and after our recent stay found it to be completely up to our expectations. The hotel is exceptionally well run, spotlessly clean and beautifully situated. The breakfasts are excellent - very well prepared and presented with ample choice. The indoor pool and superb surrounding gardens made for a very relaxing environment. Jo-Anne and... More

Visited at the beginning of July for a few days for my birthday. Everything was very clean, comfortable and friendly. Our room was a little on the small side, as we booked pretty last minute, but I actually became very fond of it very quickly. Everyone at the hotel was just lovely and made a real effort to ensure our... More

We had a deluxe room that was really nice, nice and calming colours. There was everything there iron and board, hairdryer extra pillows and cover. The whole place was spotlessly clean, I honestly don't think we have stayed at such a clean holiday place before, you never saw any rubbish left anywhere. The breakfast was plentiful and my husband would... More
