“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I recently spent 2 nights at the Fairhaven Village Inn and wish I never left! The hotel is in the most perfect location, it was spotlessly clean, the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and the suite we booked was huge!! The Inn truly provides a bespoke experience, everything from warm cookies on the reception desk to welcome you back after a day exploring the town, soft quality bed linens, knowledgeable staff, freshly cooked waffles for breakfast and coffee cups to go....every detail is looked after.

Thank you for an incredible stay, we will most definitely be back!!

I would also highly recommend Daphne's Bar which is right next door....classic, old school bar with tons of character plus Libby makes the most amazing cocktails!! Try the Old Fashioned!

Room Tip: Book a room that faces the square and if you can book the suite!

Our room was very large and well furnished. It felt very elegant and reflected the "period" of the hotel and historic district. Parking is free, the beds are very comfortable and the price is quite reasonable. They also serve a continental breakfast which is very adequate. Clsoe to shopping and restaurants as well.

This is the second time I have stayed here. The Inn staff are very helpful, the rooms are huge and well appointed, and the location is great, except for the train nearby whose nightly loud warnings would startle me awake. The breakfasts were ample and the coffee was good. The chocolate chips cookies at the front desk were a special treat after walks in the wind and rain.

Room Tip: We were on the market square side and the trains were still very audible at night.

We stayed here three nights after arriving in town off the Malaspina (Alaska ferry). I loved this hotel and the area it was in. Our room had a bay view with a small balcony and a fireplace in the room. From our room we could see the ferry depart on Friday eve. Our room was very nice and my husband even said WOW when he walked in. Coffee/tea is available in the library and also a place to relax with a fireplace. We had good parking and this Inn was in such a fun district. Cute stores/shops to browse. The Amtrak station was also nearby. They also had a breakfast and in good weather a place to even eat outside. Would stay here again and again.......

My birthday gift from my wife this year was a trip to the Pacific Northwest. We rented a car in Seattle and spent our first evening at the Fairhaven Village Inn in Bellingham, Washington. The hotel far exceeded our expectations! Our room was spacious, nice decorated, and had a fabulous view overlooking the water. The staff was warm and engaging. Luke was especially delightful and recommended Dirty Dan's Steakhouse for my birthday dinner which was fabulous! We strolled through the town and found it charming. Afterwards, we enjoyed the sunset on the balcony. We left refreshed the next morning eager to continue our journey. This hotel will definitely remain on our " to return list" of hotels.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Fairhaven Village Inn in mid-September. Our suite was huge, nicely furnished with lots of windows, and it overlooked the village square and the lively Wednesday farmers market. Everyone at the Inn was friendly, helpful, and customer-oriented.

The Inn is perfectly located, close to restaurants, two independent bookstores; interesting craft stores and galleries; the Purple Smile, a charming wine bar and store; a donut and ice cream shop; and a 24-hour grocery store with gourmet food and a terrific wine section. And we saw the perfect sunset over Bellingham Bay at the end of our hike on the South Bay Trail, which begins steps away from the Village Inn. A top "walkability" score.

Looking forward to our next visit!
