Pooben&Shailou wrote a review Jun 2007
Durban, South Africa
5.0 of 5 bubbles
We woke up on Saturday morning and felt like getting away from home for the weekend (I have been travelling a lot over the last few weeks
and the wife and I needed to spend some quality time together). We didn't want to travel too far and St. Michaels-On-Sea is quick 150km from our home in Durban.

A quick check on the internet ([----]) and we came across Fairways Guest Lodge, gave them a call and a few minutes later, after a very pleasant chat with Janet, we were booked in for the night. Later that
afternoon we jumped on our motorcycle and by 5pm were at Fairway.

Firstly the place is easy to find as it is well signposted from the main road (R102). Secondly the Lodge is pretty big so you cannot miss
it! We were met by Dave, who is a really friendly chap. Within 5 minutes we were shown to our very comfortable room that had a nice view of the sea. (the lodge is about 300m from the sea). We were given the Lilac Room and it is pretty big. The bed is covered with a down duvet which is really cosy in the not too cold south coast winter! Made for a nice pleasant sleep especially with the muted sound of the ocean in the background. The bathroom is neat and tidy with a double shower, nice!

A quick cup of coffee with Dave while we enjoyed the view got us warmed up again! Dave and Janet are originally from the UK and have been SA for about 30 years. They are recently "retired" and have chosen to take a quieter life on the KZN South Coast - lucky them! Luckily for all of us, they have chosen to run a guest house and they are really good at it. They are warm and friendly without being intrusive which is exactly what we needed.

They do a brilliant English breakfast; cereals, fruit, bacon and eggs, yummy! For dinner, there are many restaurants in close vicinity and Shelley Centre, where you catch a movie and dinner, is 2 minutes away.

All in all a nice getaway and highly recommended!

We stayed in the deluxe double room on the first floor. The most fantastic decor and attention to detail. The room was tastefully modern with a beautiful, large bathroom and well equipped kitchen (even a dishwasher). The bedroom was spacious with a seating area, comfortable bed and sea view. The outside areas were well manicured with a lovely pool. Congratulations to Dave and Janet for providing such fabulous accommodation for their guests and for keeping it so well maintained. Great value for money!

Location is perfect. So close to Wild Coast, waffle house and margate. With Shelly Centre less than 2kms away. Dave and Jan the owners are so kind friendly and accommodating. You get much more than you pay for thats for sure. Big pool and beautiful deluxe room self catering but they also do breakfasts. Thank you Fairway. You will definitely see us again.:)

My recent stay at Fairway guest house was rather disappointing especially after reading other reviews.We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was spacious but in desperate need of a revamp. The apartment had a musty damp odour, the bathrooms are outdated. The stairs to the apartment are small and cramped..not recommended for the claustrophobic.The hosts were not as friendly as expected, Janet was extremely rude and disrespectful towards us and this ruined our stay.If people of colour are not welcome then this should be made clear upfront. Definitely wont be visiting this place again.

Everything we needed after a long day from Scotland and drive from Durban airport, bed very comfortable, the apartment had everything we needed.
Jan and Dave were exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable in where to go in the area for site seeing or victuals

The hosts are great - chat to Dave about things to do and don't in the area. Room was well equipped with everything you need for a quick getaway and the views are awesome. Will definitely go back and take the family next time.

The room I stayed in for a week was spacious the amenities were there and the hosts were very accommodating. It really felt like they would try their level best to meet any request - I did not have any as it was not necessary.

I was left disappointed by this B&B. The decor in the "red" room was old, dated, the curtains needed much attention/replacement. Some time should be given to just hanging them correctly which would be a huge difference. The floor in the kitchenette sinks when you walk on it.
Not worth the money paid. Cost of breakfast is exorbitant.

Not recommended at this price even though the position is ideal to a visit to south coast.

I travel often for business and when my usual accommodation was not available I booked into Fairway Guest Lodge - and what a wonderful find. The bedroom was spacious, the bed incredibly comfortable, the bathroom had all that is required and the breakfast delicious and filling. Thank you so much to Jan and Dave and their staff for taking such good care of their guests. Fairway is now going to be my "go-to" place for travelling on the south coast.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights in a lovely first floor room with gorgeous views of the sea. The room was huge with modern furniture and comfortable sofa and had a good sized en suite with very large shower. There were two balconies, one off the adjoining kitchen and one off the main bedroom and each morning my boyfriend would open the doors and let the sea breeze in; we could see the sea shining away whilst sat in bed, it was perfect. Even though we didn't use the kitchen for cooking it was great to have a big fridge to store our drinks in and other bits of food. The owners Janet and David were lovely; extremely kind and helpful and had us laughing on more than one occasion and the breakfast supplied by them was first class....full english....yum! I will definitely be back here again in the near future.
