Was a business trip, knew I wouldn't be there for long so I picked a cheap deal from the web and for £50, I got what I paid for. Arrived late, cold room, Luke warm water for bath and early breakfast and left. Wouldn't come back with family but I will say, awesome location and potential to be very good...

Freezing cold room. Staff - youngsters in the main who finished their conversation before checking me in on arrival and I had to ask twice. No lights working in the bathroom - was told no one could change a bulb or get me a bulb to change it myself for either of the light fittings. Burned food. Luke warm water...

Visited for Sunday lunch but was disappointed with quality of food. The restaurant offers two sittings and despite being there for the first at 12.00 the roast potatoes looked to be reheats and there wasn't a full range of vegetables available. Probably of more concern was that the sole hand dryer in the mens toliets wasn't working (and strangely enough...

Our room, no. 5, was roomy but badly in need of updating. There was no heating in room even after turning up radiator thermostat, which was not a good start for mid- November on a cold windy night. We had to switch on an electric convector heater. The furnishings and carpet looked much in need of renewal; headboard on bed...

Not knowing the area we decided on this hotel as it overlooked the sea and indicated it was recently renovated. It hadn't been renovated in this millennium. It is a worn outdated hotel with potential. Our room was spacious and bright and overlooked the sea but that is where the good part ended. The bed was as hard as rock...

We have stayed at the hotel before & the food had been great, hence the booking for a Sunday lunch. Extremely disappointed, tough meat, veg poorly cooked, the cabbage looked as though it had boiled for a month. The roasts looked like Aunt Bessie's and to mix up the peas with the carrots???? Cauliflower cheese was full of "stumps". The...

We stayed here for one night only while were at the Elvis convention. We were told when booking that there would be no meals served on the Sunday evening and that as they served Sunday lunch the car park was busy and to come a little earlier if we required a parking space, which i thought was good of them...

Overall experience of the Fairways was extremely poor. To be told when we booked in on the Sunday as i requested an evening meal. The chef only works till 4 on a Sunday if we wanted an evening meal we should go to a hotel up the road or order in a Pizza!! I was also disappointed to be told...
