I needed a bed for the night and The Fairway came up at a very good price at around £40 for B&B. It is handily placed very close to the M1, although the location is on a roundabout in a trading estate. Reception is pretty basic and on the way in was unoccupied, so I had to wait a few...

Just spent a couple of nights in The Fairway for a family wedding. Firstly three cheers for the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Even chasing the halls looking for irons and ironing boards for about 90 of us - all within the same half hour. Lisa - the event planner was meticulous and a great help. And I hope...

The pizza was ok with thin dough but it was a bit bland, too crisp and overdone. The queue for the bar was ridiculous at some point with only one person behind the bar. There were a lot of families with small children, probably taking advantage of the play area, something to consider if you are not into kids. However...

This hotel has a number of good things going for it. A good soft play area for children, is within a mile of the M1, plenty of free parking, good sized rooms and friendly staff. However there is very little evidence of any effective management in the place. The booking system did not appear to work, the accounting system did...

Stayed here for a family weekend. Hotel had no record of our reservation (made and confirmed months ago) & it all went downhill from there. Queued for an age at the bar, food literally took hours to arrive after being ordered. Breakfast not great, either! Too many other complaints to mention. On the plus side, rooms were clean and all...

Absolutely fabulastic evening. We went out for a meal with the family and had a lovely time. The food was average but never sent a meal back, we all felt that the food was definitely value for money and I definitely went home with some spare change. We were served mainly by Connor I think his name was and tended...
