We have booked for Xmas 2013, and if 2012 was any thing to go by we are going to have another fantastic Xmas, the food, rooms, hotel and the hostess are all more that excellent, even our dog, Rosie did not want to leave! If you want a nice relaxing holiday this is the place to go.

This is the place to stay. I can honestly say it is beautifiully decorated throughout. Kath and her family are very welcomimg and you can have a good laugh with them. The bedrooms are at a high standard and the family room which we stayed in over Christmas 2012, had just been redecorated and had a new bed and bunkbeds. It is warm and very cosy.The breakfast is more than you could wish for and done as you like it and it keeps you full until late aftermoon. Close to the cinema, shopping area, arcades, natureland, bowling arcade, theatre and local gym, what more could you want. We stay 2 to 3 times a year and making another booking soon. Next time you think about staying in Skegness, try the Fairfax on Drummond Road, you wont be disappointed.

From the moment we pulled up outside i knew this hotel was going to be something special..and i wasn't disappointed! Beautifully decorated, warm & cozy, with a top notch hostess in Kath. The room was well stocked & the bed was to die for! I've never tasted such fantastic home cooking as that which Kath delivers (sorry mum)! The location could not be any better, being only a minutes stroll from the seafront amenities & town centre. I would rate my stay as 10/10 and now that i've found 'Perfection' i won't even be considering looking elsewhere for my next visit to Skegness. Well done Kath!
