Great little place with wonderful location on the river and very friendly staff. New management so things are still changing, but improvement work is ongoing everywhere.
Rooms are nice, one was modernised the other not yet, but both very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was pleasant enough.

Will definitely stay again at the rate charged, mainly for location and excellent service. Management could not have been more friendly and helpful. Great work keep it up.

Stayed: November 2015, travelled with family

A pleasant stay in an old time hotel. Lots of older people we know had their honeymoon at Fairy Know. With wonderful staff, beautiful surroundings, specially from the kayak, well maintained trails and restaurants with lots of character and very good food, we had an unforgettable time. we will be back.

We always love the Wilderness & it never disappoints.
The Fairy Knowe is a great place to stay, if you go with low expectations... The hotel and rooms are tired & old fashioned. The breakfast isn't great and the restaurant itself isn't of a high standard. The service was fine.
We probably will go back but it will be for the location, not the hotel itself.
