Lonely Planet review
Taking guests since 1936, the Fairlawn is a characterful 1783 Raj-era home fronted by tropical greenery. The stairs and sitting room are smothered with photos, family mementos and articles celebrating the hotel’s nonagenarian owner. While not luxurious, most rooms are spacious and well equipped though some bathrooms retain very old tubs. At least one of the downstairs rooms has limited natural light. Wi-fi (₹250) is turned off at midnight.
Our independent authors have visited Fairlawn Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in The Maidan.
