We booked the Fairhaven to spend a bank holiday weekend with friends without checking trip advisor first. All I can say is what do some people want for their money. We found the staff friendly and helpful although the hotel is a little old fashioned it was clean and warm with a great breakfast. We had a fabulous meal at... More

As part of a group of 49, I was allocated a single room, sea facing on the first floor. Small, compact bijou, but the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot and powerful. Happily the restaurant underneath was closed for refurbishment and I was staying mid week! Bedding was clean and towels changed every day. However there were only 2... More

Staff very friendly, beautiful full room and views. But wouldn't stay here again. Worst night sleep ever..... and to top it all off went for a walk after breakfast check out not till 11 when we came back to room staff had been in and made beds. Think they should at least wait until we had checked out.....

Rooms are tiny and out dated, trying to get into the tub for a shower almost ended in the emergency room because the tub was as slippery as stepping on a bar of soap. The absolutely worst is the dining area. The... More
