Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    Hotel was to a very high standard, clean and very comfortable. Lot's of attention to detail and friendly. We will definitely stay there again.

  • Older travelers

    A lovely restful break in the countryside just a few miles from Lyme Regis. The ambience of the hotel was excellent and the quality of the food even better. The staff went out of their way to help you at all times.

  • Older travelers

    As we were only in the hotel for one night it wasn't possible to form much of an opinion however the services that we did use, ie the bar and the resteraunt for breakfast, were excellent

  • Single

    Peace and quiet, but not too far away to drive to main resorts.

    A bit too isolated , too far to walk into village for a visit to the pub in the evening.

  • Older travelers

    Comfortable and friendly fellow guests

    Dissapointed by a very limited choice of French red wines; surprising to see no claret, medoc or St Emilion

  • Couple

    Food was lovely

    A bit dated needs a bit of paint here and there

  • Older travelers

    We literally used the hotel this time for sleeping. We didn't use any other facilities and weren't around to meet any staff other than the owners so can't comment further but we really love the area and would stay again.

    We didn't have the breakfast because we thought the extra charge was a bit excessive but that's really our only negative comment this stay.

  • Family with children

    Nice tranquil hotel with restaurant in quiet countryside.

    No WIFi in room.

  • Older travelers

    The location is beautifull.

    The bed is uncomfortable,and the bathroom needs updating.perhaps,getting rid of the carpet in the bathroom would be a start.there is no bar fridge in the room,which is irritating,and for me,i have thyroid medication which needs to be kept under a certain temp.i am fairly sure I would not be the only traveller with these issues.

  • Older travelers

    Location was ideal and the place could not have been cleaner and tidier.

    Noise from the room above was almost unbelievable: snoring and every movement could be heard below.

  • Older travelers

    Relaxing, great food, friendly staff, lovely locatin

  • Older travelers

    Dinner and service were excellent

    Booked on room basis only but would preferred if breakfast was included. No prices of breakfast listed. Information book in room showed menu which we decided what we were going to order to find that the menu was completely different. So perhaps the information folders should be current information.

  • Older travelers

    Pleasant country surroundings and within easy reach of interesting and colourful locations, e.g.Forde Abbey,Chesil Beach, Gardens at Abbotsbury. This was a very comfortable break following my wif'e's recent operation. Staff were polite and helpful. Would most certainly recommend Fairwater both for its comfort and of course exceptional cuisine.

    This was our second stay and on neither visit can we think of anything we did not like.

  • Single

    This was a very good find. Only stayed for one night but was made to feel extremely welcome by the owner and all of the staff. The bedroom in the main house was spacious, clean and comfortable. The food was excellent both in choice and quality, cooked with flair and imagination. Happy to recommend and considered it very good value. Likely to return for a longer stay in the future as not only is the hotel so appealing but the surrounding area is attractive and would be a good base from which to explore.

  • Older travelers

    The setting of this hotel is fabulous, the scenery is breathtaking. The room was as comfortable as being at home. A truly lovely hotel
