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 long-term owner who passed away aged 94 in September 2014. Rooms are mostly spacious but less polished than you might anticipate. Indeed some are downright plain with little charm and old bathtubs over-painted rather than re-enamelled.
Our independent authors have visited Fairlawn Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in The Maidan.
