I was left disappointed by this B&B. The decor in the "red" room was old, dated, the curtains needed much attention/replacement. Some time should be given to just hanging them correctly which would be a huge difference. The floor in the kitchenette sinks when you walk on it. Not worth the money paid. Cost of breakfast is exorbitant. Not recommended...

I travel often for business and when my usual accommodation was not available I booked into Fairway Guest Lodge - and what a wonderful find. The bedroom was spacious, the bed incredibly comfortable, the bathroom had all that is required and the breakfast delicious and filling. Thank you so much to Jan and Dave and their staff for taking such...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights in a lovely first floor room with gorgeous views of the sea. The room was huge with modern furniture and comfortable sofa and had a good sized en suite with very large shower. There were two balconies, one off the adjoining kitchen and one off the main bedroom and each morning...

We were disappointed with our stay as the pictures and score did not reflect what we were looking for, overall the communal areas are tired and dated, and these areas showed too much personality of the owners, The owners were away for our 2 day stay The air conditioning in our room was not working leaking water so had to...

Booked the red room. It was very clean, spacious and well decorated. Bed, pillows and the couch were very comfortable. Pool was sparkling and the garden was well kept. The hosts were pleasant and helpful and saw us leaving with a smile. A great place at a very affordable price! Will definitely be returning.

My recent stay at Fairway guest house was rather disappointing especially after reading other reviews.We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was spacious but in desperate need of a revamp. The apartment had a musty damp odour, the bathrooms are outdated. The stairs to the apartment are small and cramped..not recommended for the claustrophobic.The hosts were not as friendly...

We stayed at Fairway Guesthouse for three nights. Room was of a good size, clean and comfortable. Seperated kitchen was fully equiped, even with a dish washer. Clean swimming pool in the garden. Views of ocean at a distance. Male host made us laugh more than once, with his lovely humor. Rita & Peter

We only had 1 night here but enjoyed the place, we rented a 2 bedroom for us as we were 2 couples. Had a bit of difficulty finding it even using our gps but that may have been our fault. We had to call the owners 2 times to get there. Clean and tidy place, nice yard, giving it an...

Home away from home. The only reason I did not rate 5 are the stairs. It is self contained but has no washing of clothes facilities. Views of ocean are there but not spectacular. You can cook meals have views from small balconies and the hostess is lovely. Very smart clean and thoughtfully set up.

We stayed here for one night and it was beautiful! Great service and wonderful views. You get way more value for your money and the cleanest and neatest rooms and garden! We'll most certainly visit again when we're around the area. Definitely the place to stay at for both short and long visits 😊
