“In a word - fantastic”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Just spent a marvellous week staying with Elaine and Paul at The Fairbank. Everything was first class from start to finish. Both are very warm and welcoming and will always go the extra mile to meet your needs. Everywhere is clean bright and spacious. There's a lovely bar with the bonus of good real ale. The garden makes for a relaxing place to sit as well and the rooms are all well appointed,and in our case with a great view to the sea. The breakfasts are very good and dinner is also excellent with a menu which changes daily. Can I find fault? Not really, though not sure why there's no complimentary biscuits in bedrooms. Look forward to returning to more of the same, including the wonderful weather we enjoyed.

It is a really good feeling to read such a lovely review, so thank you for appreciating the efforts we make for our guests. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here at the Fairbank Hotel and will look forward to welcoming you back here one day. Complimentary biscuits? Well, no we don't put them in the rooms but it does avoid you getting crumbs in the bed! You can always request some on your next visit and we will be pleased to oblige.

Came here on a recommendation. The experience from start to finish excellent. The room good, the shower fantastic. The breakfast cooked for you on request was excellent just enough. Elaine and Neil couldn't be more helpful, even printing off a route home via Tavistock for us. Thank you no detour as our other trips out. Would certainly recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to come to the Newquay area.

Room Tip: Room at the back of the house sea views.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and had a trouble free journey home. Not quite sure who Neil is but no doubt he does just as good a job as Paul!

my husband and I were looking for somewhere to stay in the area having camped near Crantock many years previous. A great place to stay for our 25th wedding anniversary.Our room with four poster bed tea and coffee making facilities was superb. Views to die for from the bedroom window across our favourite beach the sand dunes and the sea.This Hotel is immaculate and nothing was too much trouble for the owners who were welcoming and great fun. Including drying my trousers on return from a walk in a massive storm .cream tea in the garden on arrival was a pleasant way to start our few days away.Our 22 year old daughter joined us for the first night and was delighted with her room and expressed a wish to return within minutes. breakfast was delicious and the evening meal on the second night was the best we have eaten in a long time. Congratulations to Elaine and Paul on providing a wonderful place to stay. We will recommend to all of our friends. Thankyou for an amazing experience Sue Nick and Alana

My husband and I were looking for somwhere to spend our 25th wedding anniversary in this area having camped in the area many years previous.We were not disappointed. This small hotel has the most amazing views. Our room with four poster bed did not disappoint with views over the sand dunes and crantock beach. Itwas spotlessly clean and with tea and coffee making facilities was perfect. The owners were welcoming and fun and nothing was too much trouble, even drying my trousers when caught in a downpour . Breakfast was superb and our evening was the best we have had anywhere in a long time. Our 22 year old daugher also stayed for one night and had a beautiful single room and instantly expressed a wish to return. Will recommend to all of our freinds

Room Tip: A room facing the sea

We stayed for 11 nights and enjoyed every minute. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The location in the quiet village of Crantock was a good choice to tour the rest of Cornwall.
Crantock has 3 pubs all serving food along with the traditional village shop with one of the old fashioned Post Office mail boxes outside. We can really recommend this Hotel ****** we shall go again.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as part of our 5 and a half weeks honeymoon in the UK, we are Australians from Brisbane. We did not regret our stay here one bit. We felt very at home, and the owners were very helpful when we had a bit of a drama during our stay. Loved the views from our bedroom and the setting sun over the ocean was a highlight as we don't get that in Brisbane! We get the sunrise over the ocean back at home! Loved the area and Cornwall, will definitely think about coming back. The owners went out of their way welcoming us and we felt very much at home here. Highly recommend this hotel for a holiday.
