“Elaine & Mick - Pontefract”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Just had a fabulous weekend here and it was superb, not one complaint. The hosts are the best you will get anywhere they cannot do enough for any of there guests. the rooms are beautiful the food is all home baked and absolutely gorgeous. The house is full of character and it felt like we were all one big happy family. The homework they have done to guide you to all the best places to walk or drive to is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We would highly recommend this guest house and we will be definitely be going back for a visit.

Room Tip: Room 9 massive king size bed and stunning views

If Carlsberg did hotels, they would probably employ Liz and Keith. As hosts they not only go that extra mile, but mile, after mile, after mile. First time visitors so an excellent surprise, Fairhaven is a step above the rest.

This is an example of how a guest house or hotel should be run. Nothing is too much for the hosts, tea or coffee on arrival, friendly welcoming attitude it all makes you feel special. The rooms are very comfortable, they would put many expensive hotel rooms to shame, and the guests lounge is luxurious. The breakfast is delightful and plentiful with the evening meals being excellent value for money.

Room Tip: If available the rooms at the front of the building have stunning views.

The warmest welcome ever, hot drinks and cakes upon returning 'home' each day, we were given the family room which was soooo spacious. The guest house is decorated and furnished to a very high standard, is spotlessly clean and is as warm as toast!! Beautiful real fire in the lounge, lots of comfortable chairs and sofas....a whole host of reading books, board games, and a very well stocked 'tourist info' stand!! There is also a well stocked fridge in the dining room where guests have free access to milk, yoghurts and fruit 24/7...the trays in the bedrooms are also very well stocked with tea/coffee/chocolate/biscuits etc
The breakfasts are just gorgeous..cereals..fresh fruit salads..muesli...etc .along side of a full English,or whatever is on offer for the daily specials.... ...from eggs Benedict through to grilled nectarines drizzled with honey, topped with granola and served with Greek yoghurt (which I had this morning and it was de-lish)........
Nothing is too much trouble for the genuinely lovely family who run this guest house............we took advantage of the Winter Warmer offer which included a two course evening meal on the first night........another fab meal!!
All around this lovely big house (which has some great history attached to it) you can find many little homely extras, which show such attention to detail, everything is geared towards making visitors feel comfortable, relaxed and part of the 'Fairhaven' family..we will definitely be returning....

Room Tip: You could hear a pin drop through the night here...it is so peaceful and quiet....beautiful views...

My mum is a frequent visitor to Fairhaven and constantly raves how amazing it is...I now know why! We received a very warm welcome the moment we arrived and from that point on I felt right at home. As well as the hospitality from Keith, Liz and Kelly, it was also lovely to chat to the other guests, everyone was so friendly that by the end of my stay I'd totally forgotten we'd only just met!
I could not find any fault with the accommodation and had a good sleep on both nights. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice and delicious.
Can't wait to return!
