“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

My Sister and I have stayed at Fair Winds a few times and have always enjoyed our stays there. Warm welcome and made to feel comfortable the moment we arrive. We know Brixham reasonably well but always welcome suggestions as where to eat in the evenings and the owners always suggest places that are good. Breakfast is varied and always excellent. I have to say they are probably the best breakfasts I have had in a B&B. The walk into Brixham is very do-able. Unfortunately we were there during the heavy rains!

Just returned from a weekend in brixham. Lovely stay in a beautiful house . Everything thought of . Warm hosts who are passionate and proud of their guest house and rightly so. Room was modern immaculate and bright breakfast was 5 star and their knowledge of the surrounding area impressive. Not cheap but well worth the money .

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

Just returned home from this guest house "Fair Winds" and it was fabulous. Paul and Gill were brilliant hosts and made sure our stay was perfect. Amazing breakfast with lots of choice, The perfect location very close to the town and lovely restaurants and bars. Our room was the Santa Ana with lovely on-suite. Plenty of storage and hangers in the wardrobe.
We will most definately be going back in the summer time.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Lovely comfortable beds, slept so well.

We stayed at Fair Winds Guest House for 2 nights and quite honestly we could not have chosen a better place to stay in Brixham. Paul welcomed us when we arrived and offered to take our luggage to our room. We stayed in Mistral which had a really comfortable super king size bed.
Paul showed us everything we needed to know and was really helpful in advising us on places to eat in the evening and things to do during the day. The breakfast was superb from the full English to the pancakes and maple syrup. We would highly recommend Fair Winds to anyone thinking of staying in Brixham. Thank you Paul & Gill, we will definately be visiting you again sometime in 2014!

Just returned from spending 2 nights at Fair Winds and I have to say we certainly chose the right place. We stayed in Mistral, though the en-suite is a little small the room is lovely with its comfortable superking sized bed which gave us a great nights sleep. Plenty of storage for our bits and bobs. Everywhere lovely and clean and beautifully presented. We loved the attention to detail with the full sized bathroom products, face wipes, cotton buds etc., and proper toilet roll too (I have a pet hate for cheap roll).

There is a very informative binder where we found a lovely pub to eat on the Marina. Big thanks to Paul for the lift down that evening - he saw us in the pouring rain at the bus stop and kindly took us to town.

The breakfast is delicious - Paul certainly can cook up a good full english. Tastiest bacon I have had in a long time and all perfectly cooked. I loved the fresh fruit on offer raspberries, strawberries, blueberries. And the home-made marmalade is to die for, I should have asked to buy a few jars to take home with me :-) I think my diet went out of the window just on breakfast alone!!

Would definitely stay at Fair Winds again and would recommend anybody considering a B&B in Brixham to book here with confidence. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Mistral is lovely at the back of the house so nice and quiet.

From arrival in the rain, Gill came to meet us with umbrella. Room was excellent, but ensuite a little small but everything clean. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast ordered night before arrived hot and plentiful - very comprehensive choice - sets you up for the day! Plenty of advice on local eating places, and trips outwards of Brixham. Would certainly visit again and would recommend others to book

This is the second time this year we have stayed here and this time we stayed in an annex on the side and this was a great upgrade, loads of privacy and peace and quiet. Gill is great with the local knowledge for ideas of things to do for your stay and Chef(Paul) still cooks a great full English. We will be going back next year, that should tell you all you need to know.

Room Tip: Get an upgrade if you can, the rooms are larger
