Fantastic B&B so welcoming and friendly. The rooms we're perfect and modern, there was so much to choose from for breakfast and the location of the B&B is perfect, close to the beach, town and local pubs and restaurants. Definitely would recommend and i definitely will be going back.

Having decided to revisit Skegness after 35 years the search began for a Home from Home type accommodation with parking, within walking distance of the Seafront and breakfast provided. I can absolutely say that the Fairfax was superb on all accounts. It’s home from home. Immaculately presented you will be treated with all the love and kindness of a family member returning for a visit. Kath is superb and caters for just about everything are far as I can see. She is clearly made for the hospitality business The Breakfast is superb. If you leave hungry it’s not for the lack of options An excellent stay and we will return.

We arrived at this Hotel after a terrible rail journey which left us feeling exhausted and frustrated ! Our journey woes were soon forgotten once we met Kath the owner, who was super friendly and welcoming. She showed us to our room which was bright and beautifully decorated/furnished. The bed and pillows were so comfortable and we had a perfect nights sleep. I have even had to buy the same pillows as they were so comfortable. There were so many added little touches to the rooms that show how much Kath cares for her guests ... Decaf Tea/Coffee, Latte, Hot Chocolate, Shower Gels and Sewing Kits, to name but a few. The Breakfast was wonderful, such a great and varied choice, presented so well & again added touches like homemade Jam & Marmalade. Great experience , good location , fabulous customer service ... will be back very soon.
