“Our Stay Review”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

Although the room could have been cleaner dust behind pictures etc, the room was comfortable. The chef prepared excellent home cooked food. The hotel owner and his wife were a delight to talk to, evening entertainment was a bit cheesy but ok. All in all a nice place to stay.

Arrived home today after four wonderful nights at Fairlands, Having read a couple of poor reviews we were apprehensive but we needn't have been, We were met at the door by our host, 'Lucky' and staff who took our coach load of luggage to our rooms, very quick check in. Clean room. Bins emptied, bathroom cleaned, tea making facilities replenished and bed made daily. The food was well balanced, plentyful, hot and well cooked. Mick the barman was a star. If your looking for a color co-ordinated sterile conference centre then this is not the place for you, but if you want a clean and friendly home from home where you every need is taken care of then Fairlands is the place to be. :)

Room Tip: some rooms only have a bath so check

We spent 6 nights at the hotel and the service and food was excellent. The staff could not do enough for you and the owner Lucky was so friendly and made jokes with you. Everything we asked for we received with a smile.

Having read some of the reviews before traveling to Fairlands, I wonder where the reviewers stayed? It wasn't where I went. Friendly welcome, rapid room allocation and case delivery, especially when you take into account 43 people arriving at one time. Some areas of the hotel were tired but there's plenty of evidence of investment. Great location, handy for prom, shops and theatres. Good full breakfast, with plenty of options. Each evening a choice of starter and main and dessert. On my table there was me (a diabetic) offered a wonderful selection of fruit, and one of my companions (gluton free/vegetarian) offered specially homemade dishes. Noticable was the use of fresh vegetables and the fact it was not ding food. (It wasn't microwave food). Full praise to Mr Abbey the owner, the excellent chef and all the other members of the attentive staff. I stayed at a seafront hotel earlier this year at twice the price and less that half the service/personnal attention. Where do you think I'll return to?

We are just back home after our 6 night stay at Fairlands Hotel Eastbourne. Like many other travellers we found the hotel incredibly friendly. Our cases were taken to our rooms and keys given out very quickly, with a hot meal served promptly. Our room was clean and looked freshly painted.
All staff were very efficient, polite and friendly. On discovering that, not only was I non-meat eating, but also on a gluten free diet, I was offered an alternative meal and the owner made sure that I had plenty to eat during my stay, including gluten free bread toasted in the mornings and a roll at night.
Many thanks to the chef who adapted some meals for me - making a vegetable soup with cornflour and a special fish pie - again adapting the sauce. I enjoyed all my meals and always came away feeling full! Others at my table commented on how they enjoyed the meat dishes especially the beef. We never waited long for our meals and they were always hot, tasty and well-cooked.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay enjoyable. We would certainly stay here again if we come to Eastbourne again.

Room Tip: Room 9 was small but adequate. We had a shower but no bath.
