“Memorable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We stayed on a Travelzoo deal, and were really impressed with the hotel. It would have been good value at full price, even better with the deal. We were welcomed as honoured guests, no airs or graces but really friendly. We had the cream tea in the afternoon with great service for a simple afternoon tea. The evening meal started with canapés and went on to a wonderful four courses which rivalled the best we've had for service and food quality. We were struck by the quiet and slept well, then breakfast was another treat. Somewhere to look forward to returning to, can't wait for an excuse.

Room Tip: Not all rooms look out on the lake, so worth asking when you book.

We stayed here on a travelzoo deal and we couldnt bekieve the excellent service and food that we experienced at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. The cream tea with prosecco was lovely, the evening meal with canapes was amazing and the breakfast second to none. A lovely relaxing break which we will definitely repeat in the future.

Recently stayed at the Fayrer Garden on a Travelzoo offer - purchased by my lovely son and daughter in law. Added a second night at our own expense. Absolutely first class from beginning to end. Exceptional food, stunning location. Staff were extremely friendly and very attentive. Would recommend highly.

We took advantage of a weekend offer and stayed her overnight to break a trip from Edinburgh to London

Apart fom finding we had no hot water in the room we cannot fault the hotel for its welcome, cleanliness and attentive staff.

The evening meal was first class and the room very comfortable. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Stayed last Sunday for one night on a Travelzoo offer - Prosecco & cream tea on arrival, 3 course evening meal & breakfast of your choice, all for £99 for both of us! Also had free use of the Spa and pool facilities at the Old England Hotel in Bowness, just a short drive away.
Can only reiterate what others have already said - lovely hotel with beautiful grounds, well appointed and very comfy room, very friendly & polite staff, exceptional food. Cannot fault anything and will be definitely be returning.
Thankyou to all at Fayrer Hotel!

We have just returned from an overnight stay at this hotel and I have to say we have had a wonderful time. We got a deal through Travel Zoo, which included breakfast, dinner with canapés and afternoon tea with prosecco. I have never known such value for money, the food was exceptional, the location absolutely stunning and the staff were friendly, polite and professional. My only complaint was our shower in room 6 never got warm and I informed the staff about this, more for the benefit of future guests as we were only there for one night. We came with our close friends and all agreed we would come again. Well done to everyone involved in making our stay so enjoyable.

My wife and I visited here back in April for a short break and found it to be the most relaxing break we have ever had.....so much so, that we returned again a couple of weeks ago and found it exactly as it was earlier this year..

What makes it relaxing?

The setting......the feel of a country house, rather than a hotel......the ambience.....the service....the staff......the afternoon tea with homemade scones, jam, cream, topped off with a glass of prosecco.....whilst sat in the very relaxing comfortable lounge overlooking the stunning views of the lake and surrounding hills...... and the feel of everything goes at YOUR pace...

I have to add that I have never seen the staff anywhere who are more pleasant, with nothing too much trouble at all.....and a special mention has to go to Gosia as she is truly an ASSET to the establishment......... If you go then you'll see what we mean!

The rooms are comfortable and clean, the food excellent .....( the only thing that I would add personally)....is I think that a side dish of vegetables wouldn't go amiss with dinner.....but that is just my own opinion......but the quality of food and presentation is EXCELLENT!!

All in all we have been here twice now, and we are already talking about when to go back.....

Thank you to everyone at the Fayrer Garden House Hotel for making my Birthday a very memorable one!
