My husband and I were attending a wedding at the Fairway and booked ourselves a room as soon as we got the invite so we could stay in the most convenient place. The room was perfectly adequate, warm and clean, with a good sized bathroom with a shower over the bath tub, lovely views, tv and facilities to make a hot drink. It was nice to get ready for the wedding at our leisure whilst watching tv and enjoying a cup of tea. You pay up front at the bar when you arrive. This might not have been blindingly obvious but one question to the bar man and we were paid up and shown to our room. We ordered breakfast for the following morning and enjoyed a hearty full English with the other guests. There was also a party in the bar the night we stayed, but the wedding went on late and both were over by 1am. It is a golf club and celebration venue, not a hotel, so rooms are an added bonus and it was perfectly acceptable, did exactly what it should and was excellent value.
I would also like to add that the wedding at the same venue was superb. The ceremony room was beautifully decorated and during the photos it was turned into the reception venue. The tables and chairs were also beautifully decorated in co-ordinating colours chosen by the bride to match her theme. It has a nice big dance floor and although the tables were generously spaced apart it felt intimate and cosy without feeling crowded (there must have been at least 120 people). The room was softly lit and it was also nice and warm as it was bitterly cold outside, adding to the cosy atmosphere. The buffet food was excellent and the bar was always manned by friendly and courteous staff. It was one of the best weddings I've ever been to. Top marks.
