Positive Reviews

Helpful staff.

Whether it be from assisting with restaurant choice, or calling a doctor, the staff take very good care of their guests. The customer service is top notch, and guests can expect to be well cared for, and have their needs and requests seen to, to the best of the staff's ability.

Great location.

Located downtown, guests will find that they will be staying in close proximity to may bars, restaurants, and various nightlife locations. There are many local stores, and other entertainment available, that make The Fairview Guest House a perfect base.

Breakfast of champions.

Along with prepared fruit, cereals, a number of juices, breads, cheeses, and yoghurts, guests will also have the option of a cooked breakfast - The Full Irish. As imposing as the name sounds, the fully prepared, cooked-to-order meal takes one's breath away, and leaves one full, and their hunger sated.

Negative Reviews

Corner of a busy intersection.

Although The Fairview Guest House has stated that it is a quiet hotel, it's location on the corner of a busy intersection leads to some traffic noise at certain times of the day.

Wi-Fi problems.

If guests are finding themselves at a loss when it comes to the connectivity of their Wi-Fi, unfortunately the hotel staff are not going to be much help. The service is managed by an outside source, and the staff are not clued up on how to fix any issues.

Loud ice machine.

For guests unfortunate enough to be located in a room next to the ice machine, the hotel is truly apologetic. The machine, as it dispenses ice, makes a loud ‘clunking' noise, as the shelf of ice is dropped into the machine.
