“A good place to stay”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

This is an ideal place to stay if you don't fancy camping for the Fairport Cropredy Convention. It's only 15 mins away from the site. It's a very good B and B, clean and well-managed, the staff are very keen to help and to please the guests. It is on a main road but sleep with the window shut and it's OK.

My friend and I stayed for two nights on the way down to London to see the Olympics, we were allocated room 18 a really big spacious and spotlessly clean room with a large bathroon. The owner was very helpful and gave us a map pointing out places of interest ( to us that was the Wetherspoons. ) We ate a hearty breakfast both mornings and I would definitely recommend this b&b I would have no qualms returning.

We stayed at Fairlawns for 5 weeks recently whilst waiting for our house purchase to complete.
We stayed in an annexe room,which was warm,well furnished and spacious.The bedroom and en suite showeroom were cleaned daily to a high standard and the staff were polite and friendly.
Breakfast was lovely and well presented.with a good choice of cereals,yogurts and pastries.
The owners Alan and Maureen went out of their way to make us comfortable,and we would recommend Fairlawns to anyone

Stayed here for 1 night on a trip to Oxford & thought it looked pretty good online as it did have some good reviews. However if you like a good night's sleep, comfy bed, hot shower & just a wee bit of space in your room then this is not the place to stay!! The guesthouse sits on Oxford road and has lots of traffic - which you can hear all night! The bed was ok but not attached in any way to the mattress or bedstead so kept moving around! I cant say any more about the shower other than it didn't even reach lukewarm temperatures, even after running more than 5 minutes. I had a tiny room on the ground floor which despite being only 5'4", could almost touch both walls with fully outstretched arms. It was pretty claustrophic & is due to them obviously adding make-shift ensuites which cuts the room in half!! I will say that the staff do work hard to keep the place clean and provide good breakfasts, but that doesn't balance all the other negatives!!

Room Tip: If you must stay here it may be better to have a room as far away from road as possible

Thank you for your review. I am very pleased you found your room clean & enjoyed breakfast. Any problems can be reported to reception and we will happily sort them out or move you to a different room. We are located on the Oxford Road, a short walk from the town centre which is very convenient for many guests.

we stayed here as a group prior to a wedding. The garden rooms allocated to us, were very clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water and a pleasant outside seating area was at our disposal. the Super, friendly owners demonstrated a refreshing "can Do" attitude and served a good, well-cooked breakfast. Highly recommend this as a place to stay and very convenient for Banbury town centre

Room Tip: ask for the garden rooms if you are a party

We would certainly stay here again. The proprietors were very welcoming and helpful. We had a family room which was lovely, spacious and very comfortable. It felt like a hotel in some respects with attention to detail. Breakfast was lovely too & even our fussy little monsters enjoyed it! Good value for money too.

stayed in one of the chalet rooms at the rear and it was a very nice well presented room clean and tidy. relaxing and quiet and really close to Banbury town centre for shopping. Had a handy parking space right outside the door for easy access for unloading. we could not fault the breakfast it was spot on with really good service from the young lady Holly.We visit Banbury and the area often and will defiantly be stopping again.
