About The Fairlawns Hotel
The Fairlawns opened its doors as a boutique hotel in January 1998, with the original 12 courtyard suites, the restaurant and bar.
Apart from the beautiful surroundings, which without exception seems to elicit the response “one would never say one is in Johannesburg”, the warm, homely ambience is unerringly remarked upon as is evidenced by the comments in the visitors’ book. As one visitor commented “a home away from home, only better’. The Fairlawns believes that in this 21st century with its mass production of products and services which are becoming increasingly uniform across the globe, people from all walks of life appreciate being acknowledged as a very unique individual, in very unique surroundings. The Fairlawns strives to achieve that.
Restaurant & Bar
The Fairlawns focus is to provide personal, flexible service in a refined and exclusive establishment. A full English breakfast and continental are included in the room rate and may be taken anywhere, anytime.
There is no cut-off time for in-house guests, and they may request breakfast by the pool, on The Rose Terrace, or in their suite should they so desire. However, the buffet is removed at 10h30am. The lunch and dinner menus are à la carte.
Their candlelit dinners can be served in either the private dining-room, in the restaurant or on the terrace. In the summer, guests may request a table be set on the lawns under the stars, or near the lit fountains, a service which they are happy to provide.
A light lunch menu and room service menu are also available. In the evenings, relax with an aperitif on the tranquil terrace or sip cognac in front of the winter fire in the Colonial Bar, with its hand-carved elephant heads.
In winter, guests congregate around the welcoming fireplace like moths around a candle, for some good old-fashioned gemutlichkeit.
The bar is a fully stocked, award-winning bar. To date, 2 merit, 3 platinum and 1 diamond award (one of only 5 national recipients) have been awarded by Diners Club “Wine List of the Year” award. The Rose Terrace is open to non-residents for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
