The Fairlawn Hotel
Most of the guests who stay at Fairlawn are intrigued with it’s past. The building has been shaped by the hands and minds of generations of families whose memories and influences have contributed to the unique character that Fairlawn boasts of.
Since 1783 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 walk from the famous New Market area. (“New” meaning over 100 years old, compared to Fairlawn, a whippersnapper of a building). About the same distance away, past the Indian Museum, is the Park St Metro station, Park St itself is just beyond.
The Hotel is defined by its idiosyncrasies. If one needs the impersonal semi perfection of a large chain, it exists elsewhere in the city. However, for a stay that one can cherish as much as one’s trip to India, this is the only place to be at. Colonial charm and decor 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 hence giving a feel of all being real.
Jennifer Fowler is the third generation of her family to own the hotel. She inherited it on the death of her vibrant mother Vi Smith and she in-turn inherited it from her hardworking Mother Rosie Sarkies. Each one of these ladies has put a personal stamp on the Hotel itself and their personal touch is very noticeable in the running of the place. Many of the staff have been here for decades and have introduced their sons into the system. This gives Fairlawn a feeling of family comfort, and charm.
