“Small and cosy but big on hospitality”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Lovely family run business. Very helpful and extremely clean. Excellent range for breakfast. The bar was well stocked with bottled alcohol and soft drinks. They said they were willing to bring breakfast upstairs if my grandad was unable to walk down the stairs, but he managed the stairs just fine.

A great B&B. Received a warm and friendly welcome. The room and the bathroom were very clean. There is everything you need and the bed was very comfy.(the best sleep i think i have had in any guest house) The breakfast was excellent with a great choice and very tasty.The cooked breakfast sets you up for the day. There is free parking just around the corner and the location is ideal. We had a fantastic weekend in Amesbury (for my husbands birthday) thanks to Tracey and Keith for making it a great stay. Would definitely recommended staying here as you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 which was very quiet.

We stayed here in order to attend a party locally, we were made to feel very welcome from the point of checkin. The room was comfortable and well presented and provided everything we needed. The breakfast was fantastic with a lot of choice. Would return

Myself and a colleague stayed overnight at Fairlawn House on business. The welcome was very warm and informative. The rooms were comfortable and well equipped. The shower that was in the room I was in (Room 8) was excellent. Even though the bar was well stocked, we decided to go elsewhere for something to eat and drink. We were informed of where was best to eat and the fact that it was only a three minute walk was even better. Cash points (ATMs)were available close to the accommodation and parking was close too. The breakfast was good and plentiful and nothing was too much trouble.

Reviewed 24 November 2013

We visited Amesbury to attend a Saturday evening family party and wanted a place within walking distance. Other reviewers rated the Fairlawn well - and, now home, we can do so too. We weren't there for long, however, and didn't have time to use any facilities other than the room (clean, comfortable and with first class shower cubicle if no bath) and breakfast (well presented and generous). On-street parking immediately outside the front door was available and gave us no worries but, had we wanted it, an offer was made of arrangements to park on a nearby site should we want. The wifi had dropped out during the day but the proprietors had worked hard to re-establish - which sadly didn't do us any good but I was sure that had I stayed longer it would have been fixed. Having already checked in, I was told in Antrobus House that had we asked before booking we would have been offered some sort of referral discount but, having booked & paid on line, this didn't come our way. Perhaps I should have asked for a refund but I wanted to move on promptly in the morning and, given that the cost seemed fair, didn't bother - nevertheless others might want to bear the possibility in mind. Would we go back? Yes.

Our room was for 2 nights , the first night was a bit rough on the old back as the mattress was nasty , you could feel every spring in the bed. Also every time we turned over or moved the headboard made a noise against the wall, my husband ended up wedging his shoe between the bed and the wall. The next morning I mentioned the mattress and was told it was a new one ? I asked if they could get a mattress topper and when we came back in the evening they had been out and purchased a topper, which did improve the mattress situation. The furniture in our room and decor in need of some TLC. The owners very friendly and the breakfast and choices of food good and very well tended too by the staff

On arrival I was greeted warmly by Keith, he was very helpful in sharing advice on where to eat & drink. There is a car park at the rear but I found a spot on the front.

The room was very compact with a small shower room but its layout worked fine for me. The big let down was the bed. The base was not in great shape and the mattress was well past its best. Being the main event of a room, it was poor.

Breakfast was fantastic and I thought the service was first rate and friendly.

The hotel is on the high street so access to all the town facilities is a minute or two. The place was very quiet and even with that mattress I got a dec3nt nights sleep.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. We are pleased you enjoyed our customer service and breakfast.

Sorry the bed was not up to standard. We are gradually replacing and updating the furniture in our rooms and we will ensure that we replace the bed in question as a priority. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
