We stayed at the Fairmont on a package that included tickets for the Sport for Jove Shakespeare season and, if so inclined, lectures, debates and acting workshops. We were aware of the past history of the Fairmont, but having seen a performance by SfJ at the F last year we booked in. We had a family suite - downstairs with outdoor access. Everything as one would expect accept for pillows that were like logs. However, the breakfast buffet was excellent and the staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful. The latter has left a lasting impression. We did not have time to try all the amenities but they looked good! It would also appear that the F was an extremely supportive partner for SfJ. Well dome Fairmont!

I stayed there with my mom for 3 nights- we needed a place where one can spend the whole day if she felt unwell. The room was OK- clean, refurbished, adequate size but maybe a bit corporate. A number of areas were refurbished, so a bit disappointing. It was slightly rainy on one of the days and we decided to try the pools- the outside jakuzzi was freezing! The indoor pool and jakuzzi were nice enough.
The breakfast is plentiful, but stick to fruit. Hot food seemed to have been cooked in advance and left outside for ours. The 'fine dining' restaurant had average views, but good food and nice desserts. I would go again with the family, but definitely look someplace else for a special occasion or romance. I give 4 stars as it suited the occasion.

The new management of the resort has made some inroads to revitalizing this hotel. There is still a way to go to bring it back to its former glory. The staff need to be a little more attentive and the general clean-up needs to be thorough. The rooms was pleasant enough - although there was mould in the bathroom. The outdoor swimming pool was not heated and the spa looks a little worse for wear. The experience was much better than 2 years ago and there is evidence of change. The breakfast was a little disappointing - a lack of variety and options. It would be great to have an "egg chef" on duty to provide more options than just the scrambled variety.
