Accomodation during the Comrades Marathon”

Overall a very good experience. Fairview was very flexible in accommodating and refunding us when we reduced our booking from 3 to 2 people. The lady working at Fairview was excellent at what she did! Very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was lovely and the facilities was also good. Maybe a bit pricey for what you get, but all the plus points made up for the price.
