The restaurant offered some good quality Indian food although desserts could have been improved. I Sizzling Brownie was quite hard and more like a biscuit than a brownie. The service was nice and fast, although they seemed a bit impatient to take orders.

My first stay at Fairway Hotel, and overall a positive experience - albeit with room for improvement.

This is old hotel property and the new block has rooms with all required amenities. The hotel is spread over a large area with a touch of nature. The new block rooms have a good size veranda with table and chairs and face the internal garden. Calm and quiet, but the TV should have more channels available.
