Fairlight Beach House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2017

We spent one night in Fairlight Beach House and were absolutely happy with our choice. We stayed in Collin room which does not have full sea view but a lot of privacy. You can see the ocean though and it‘s a great view. The spacious room is very tastefully furnished and decorated. The bathroom with its large shower was also very convenient. Wi-Fi was good and fast. After a good night‘s sleep whe had a great breakfast with a fantastic view. We could even watch dolphins this morning and it was absolutely great. The kitchen and breakfast room/area are also very tastefully furnished and decorated. The photos on the walls were very interesting to watch. The cold and warm breakfast was very good and delicious. Thanks to Beulah for a warm welcome, helping us with a restaurant reservation and having a good chat. Thanks to all the friendly staff to make our stay a very pleasant and rememberable one. Fairlight Beach House is absolutey recommendable.

What a very nice place to spend a couple of days in. I cannot recommend this beach house enough, from the spacious accommodation to the very pleasant views to the great breakfast this is a place I would recommend to everyone who needs to stay in the area.
The staff and owner were very nice and easy to get along with and are very knowledgeable about the area. The actual place is perched on a hill overlooking the ocean with views that are amazing.

This is a beautiful place to stay, it's a family run business which makes you feel you get the personal touch. The rooms are lovely and we had an amazing large bathroom with a beautiful big bath over looking the sea. We had a lovely balcony giving a very clear view of the beach and the sound of the waves could be heard from the room, making it a very enjoyable and relaxing place to stay. Breakfast was lovely with a great choice of foods. Just a few minutes walk up the beach you had a good choice of eateries and a couple of shops. It was a quiet place to be and very enjoyable. We will definitely stay again.

The staff were very kind and helpful. Only stayed 1 night. Wish I could have stayed more. The beach/ ocean views and great! The rooms are nothing fancy but worth the stay for the views. Serve a nice breakfast.

Fairlight is a stunning family home right on the beach. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfasts, whilst watching whales, are excellent. It is also within walking distance of an excellent restaurant for evening meals. Would definitely return and recommend to others.
