We left it late to book a hotel for one night for a wedding and all suggested ones were full. When I rang Fairfield House the chap who answered the phone could not have been more helpful. I told him I was looking for a double room for B&B and my wish list would be lots of space, good shower, very comfy bed and views. He immediately suggested he book us into the Blenheim Suite which he reduced to £149.00 for B&B. This is quite pricey but I would always prefer to pay a bit more and get a truly comfortable room. He also said we could come at noon so we had time to shower and change for the wedding. Usual booking in time is 2pm.
It was easy to find, lots of free parking and friendly man on reception who willingly helped carry our bags upstairs. The room was magnificent. I have stayed in houses that would have fitted into it!! Also an enormous bathroom with free standing roll top bath, fantastic shower, lots of light and space and big white towels. My only suggestion would be to have a table next to the basin mirror to put make up on to.
The room was freshly decorated, had a bay window with views over the sea to Aran and an enormous very comfy bed with cotton sheets. It was spotlessly clean with lots of hanging space in cupboards and two long mirrors and an old fashioned dressing table. Tea and coffe (with cafetiere) and ironing board and big flatscreen TV. Really everything you would want, they even offered to bring us up sandwhiches!!
We went down to the bar and had very very good gin and tonics and really delicious sandwhiches. We asked for a bottle of sparkling water to take up to our room as there wasn't any bottled water in the room and we weren't charged for it I don't think. We had a very comfortable night, it was quiet and warm and spacious.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and if I was trying to be picky all I could think of would be the melon was like a turnip, not ripe at all and the waitress was unfriendly and a bit brusque. The girl who checked us out didn't ask if we had enjoyed our stay but apart from 3 tiny things it was perfect and I thoroughly recommend it.
