Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We bought a caravan on the park at the end of last summer. The whole experience was made as smooth and pleasant as it could be by the sales team - particularly Charlotte. I would highly recommend it as a lovely place for families. It is ideally located, with a great atmosphere and good amenities (bar/restaurant and child-friendly pool).

I bought a 2nd one through Charlotte. It was a lovely semi lodge. Very easy purchase. All went smoothly and I’m so pleased with it. The park is lovely and very well kept and the roast dinners on a Sunday in McCarthy’s restaurant are lovely and well talked about!

Needed a break and chose this place for a 5 night stay. The lodge we stayed in was impeccably clean and tidy. The beds were very comfy. The clubhouse is a bit noisy as others have said but it is a holiday park and holidays are for enjoying. We liked it that much that we considered buying a lodge ourselves. Like most things I do in life these days I always look for reviews and this is where it all went Pete Tong. The were some quite scathing reviews about the park owners who seemingly have used underhand tactics to unnecessarily evict owners. Obviously I can't substantiate this but I cannot ignore these experiences as one of these owners could potentially be me. The lovely young lady Charlotte in the sales office has been very helpful and supplies any info you need. Would we stay here again, yes definitely, would we buy, well the jury is out on that one.

I have spent some time on this park and I cannot recommend this place. I have seen fighting at the club house and whenever I went in felt uncomfortable. Every bit of open space they had that made the site feel open has been replaced with a caravan or lodge and felt overcrowded. If you are going to buy ensure you visit first to get a feel. A lot of the staff were very rude and abrupt and I would definitely not recommend.

I had some bad comments & some good comments, more good than bad & since found out all the good comments were true and I don’t believe the bad ones. There is always two sides to every story. I would give John a 12 out of 10. My lodge is gorgeous. You can see it on C47 and I would always be happy to talk to anyone who wants to know about my experience here. I love it and so doesn’t sister, daughter and grandchildren. Fairway is a jewel on the Isle of Wight.

I’m not too sure about a couple of the false reviews I have read. Seems to be lots of good too. We bought a caravan in January. We have moved in and met a lot of great people on Fairway. We have been enjoying Fairway for many years as holiday makers and are now so happy we have financed our own. The office staff; Johnny & Josh have always made us feel so welcome. We highly recommend this park and your welcome to meet us and other owners which will vouch for their many years of ownership on this beautiful park.

My partner and I bought £100k new lodge from fairway. At first everything seemed okay. We should have looked at a few more sites before buying from these crooks. Everything Johnny does is to make money off of the backs of the residents so he can drive flash cars and feel like the big man he definitely isn’t. Many people’s lives have been turned upside down by buying at Fairway. I imagine if you are just there on holiday it’s okay, but as a lodge or caravan owner you have NO RIGHTS WHATSOEVER. You will have NO SECURITY and most likely at some point if you do or say anything JOHNNY doesn’t like you be served with a 28 day notice to leave the site. Literally, that is JOHNNY’S business plan. Sell you a dream at full price, then evict you, give you 25% of the value of your caravan and sell it on to another person. I HAVE SEEN IT HAPPEN NUMEROUS TIMES. Please don’t give them your hard earned money. We were lucky and left, but still lost £50k. Many others left with little or nothing. Buyer beware.

Hello Richard, This is very sad to read. I believe you was upset as you wanted to rent the caravan to holiday makers outside of lockdown and we didnt have a big enough play ground for you. I agree; however a new one was ordered and the company never installed. We have since found a new company to assist. We never asked you to leave the park. You chose to sell your caravan in part exchange to Away Resorts because they are more suited to children and holidays. You agreed your price with Away Resorts (NOT FAIRWAY). We would have paid alot more for it if we had the opportunity but you seemed happy when you chose to relocate. Your review is false and we will take further action to request this fake review and horrible accusation.

Just had a fabulous long weekend at Fairway. Very friendly and welcoming. The caravan was immaculate. The bar staff were great fun and good entertainment. Can't wait to visit again in the near future. Thanks to everyone for making us feel so at home and giving us a very relaxing and entertaining weekend away. Saffron (our puppy) had a fantastic time and thanks everyone for all the treats (she's now on a diet!!).

Such a noisy site. Chain saw cutting down trees early in the morning day after day. Kids screaming by the pool gone 8pm. Overdeloped, trying to squeeze in caravans which are close to neighbouring houses/gardens. Nice walk/cycle path nearby for dog walking, otherwise unimpressed with site and noise levels. Certainly not relaxing, chilled vibe. Feel sorry for the neighbours who live nearby!

Hi, Fairway Holiday Park does not rent any holiday homes. This is a private caravan you booked. It does not reflect kindly on us and you need to review the actual caravan & not the park. Please can you email me info@fairwayholidaypark.co.uk with holiday home you booked.
