We stayed for three nights at the Fairmont in a superior room. The room was nicely appointed with lovely Appelles toiletries provided in the bathroom, and a nice selection of teas in the cupboard. The room was comfortable but a little warm and we had to use the airconditioning on cold to cool it down. The sound insulation was not good through the front door, so we were awakened at 7am by children running down the halls and other room doors slamming shut.
The breakfast buffet was lovely with a wide selection available. Unfortunately it was extremely busy and difficult to find a table. The table allocation seemed a little disorganised and the restaurant could have benefited from more staff. The staff however were friendly and helpful.
The segway tour was fun. There is a nice children's play area for smaller children. The pool was warm but quite crowded due to the school holidays. The gym area had a wide selection of equipment and I believe is undergoing a full upgrade shortly. It will also be nice when the spa/treatment rooms are completed. Free wi-fi would have been appreciated.
Overall, we were very happy with the hotel. We were pleased for the hotel that it was fully booked, but I suppose if you would like a quieter less hectic stay, then the school holidays are probably not the best time to visit. We would come again and would recommend the hotel to others.
