Much simpler than the five star hotels is the Fairlawn with only 21 rooms furnished traditionally in Raj style. It is well located for sightseeing and full of character. Dine in the restaurant or take tea on the lawn surrounded by the pretty gardens, either way, you can absorb the timeless atmosphere. For 218 years Fairlawn has stood on the junction of Madge Lane and Sudder Street, the heart of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant area of the city and within two minutes walks from the famous New Market area. The hotel is defined by its idiosyncrasies. Colonial charm and décor and a potpourri of styles ranging from it’s past, combined with modern facilities and home comforts mark the place as unique. Sitting in the lush greenery of the garden or on the terraces, one can easily drift off to any period in the last 200 years, the props are all around you, and they are the real thing too.
