The best thing about the Fairway is the location in Colombo Fort just behind the Dutch Hospital. It is very good value for money and offers a reasonable degree of comfort for a short stay in Colombo. There is an addition to the hotel that is currently under construction which includes a pool, which will be nice. The rooms are comfortable- ours overlooked the Dutch Hospital and the World Trade Center. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were a bit soft for my liking. There was relatively few surfaces to put things down- the writing desk is tiny. It also doesn't have a power outlet that can be used by a laptop or a mobile phone charger-these are on the bedside tables- rather strange! The bathroom is fine but has a funny sloped vanity around the washbasin- a bit hard if you want to put out toiletries. The staff are pleasant and helpful and interact very well with guests. The one real negative is the lack of a proper restaurant- the 'food court' where the buffet breakfast is served just isn't very nice. And the Java Lounge coffee house next door has terrible food- a very poor selection even for a morning coffee or muffin. We would definitely stay at the Fairway again as it is so centrally located and offers good accommodation at very reasonable prices.
