Beautiful property with helpful staff, took great care of us !

We arrived at Fairlawns when the covid19 travel ban was announced. While our travel agent scrambled to find flights for us to return home the staff at Fairlawns were exceptionally helpful and supportive. Our plans changed and shifted almost daily for 4 days and they were able to accomodate our unknown departure and made us feel safe and at home. We will certainly return once travel resumes, recommend this Hotel with top ratings!
