Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Really enjoyable stay at the Fairfield. The owner was really friendly and helpful. The rooms were modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits provided daily in the rooms. Televisions in the rooms and plenty of power sockets. The breakfast was also top rate. Cereal and juices available for self service follwed by a choice of cooked breakfasts, from Full English (which I had - and it was excellent) to bacon/sausage or egg on toast for those with smaller appetite served to your table. Tea, coffee and toast included! Definitely the best hotel/guest house I have stayed in on the Isle of Man. I will be returning.
