    When I read the other reviews of Fairlawn, I think of what someone once told me before I traveled to India: India is a mirror. What you bring to it is what is reflected. Of course, that's much more interesting to think about in other...More

    I have searched booking sites for any dates with rooms available at the Fairlawn. When spot checking, all that I found available was one single room available on one date. Could it really be completely booked more than 6 months in advance? How did you ever get a reservation?

    Any insight on Room 5 (upstairs single) I have always been in Room 9 in the past but it is not available. Does it have a window and/or balcony? No doubt, it is small, but any other info would be helpful.
