We stayed here for one night only while were at the Elvis convention. We were told when booking that there would be no meals served on the Sunday evening and that as they served Sunday lunch the car park was busy and to come a little earlier if we required a parking space, which i thought was good of them...

Overall experience of the Fairways was extremely poor. To be told when we booked in on the Sunday as i requested an evening meal. The chef only works till 4 on a Sunday if we wanted an evening meal we should go to a hotel up the road or order in a Pizza!! I was also disappointed to be told... More

We stayed here for two nights over a weekend. The Hotel is well located with great sea views and a good restaurant & breakfast room, just a few minutes walk from the town & harbour. We ate one night at the hotel and found the food good, but a little expensive for what we had. Staff were good and friendly... More

We had booked for 2 nights but would have moved after one night if we had not already paid. The location is excellent. The staff we encountered were very good but totally overworked in the restaurant. When we checked in we rang and rang the bell (as advised if the reception was unmanned). No luck in attracting anyone so we... More

Visited Fairways today for Sunday lunch, very disappointed, beef was tough and the veg was Luke warm,service was slow and I am still waiting for the waitress to bring the dessert menu. There are much nicer places in the area so sorry Fairways will not be back.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights over a weekend. I will try to be fair in this review and point out any good points even though the overall experience was grim. Good location. Reasonably clean. Good views of the coastline. However.... Noisy plumbing (when anyone else turned on a tap/ flushed their loo the noise was loud in... More

I tend to shy away from hotels for lunch as they are generally poor value for money. Not so in this case. 5 star throughout - service, quality and most surprisingly, value. The menu is not as varied as some, but we had the cheese and onion on brown and chicken and chorizo, also on brown. Very generous amount of... More
