Not many points about the hotel and stay that didn't disappoint or let us down. Food was completely bland many people in the group mentioned this, I am an average cook at best and could absolutely have created a more flavoursome dish. The rooms were nothing special for the price, stayed in better for less. We mentioned a minor complaint on checking out just to let them know an fyi, and came away with a much larger complaint from the lady's aggressively defensive and then dismissive attitude (she seemed senior enough so was surprised at this poor customer service). We let all the group know about the exchange and all were in agreement and the hotel did not come off well. Additional more minor point is that we left an item behind it was found but never arrived to me. I would have paid registered post it should be an easier and standard process for any hotel at this level. I wouldn't be recommending this hotel for a special weekend away or a special occasion, the money is better spent on other superior hotels in the same area

nice place to stay but dont expect the restaurant to fill you up portion sizes tiny fish cake with no fish inside it was a potato Crockett which my guess was bought in frozen ,my friend had salmon to start 3x pieces of fish 1cm x.2cm with a tiny piece of salad in the centre of the plate,main course was not any better ordered cod with mussels sent if back ordered portion size too small so ordered Steak again too small plus i tiny piece of broccoli and a tiny piece of round mash potato, then my wife's meal came it was supposed to be cod and mussels it was in fact cod and prawns which nobody told us that there was a chance because they had no mussels. rooms are nice but totally over priced at 280e per night . by the way everyones plates were empty after the meal only because there was not enough food to start with.we did complain to management who were VERY nice so they offered us a round of drinks which was great but we were still hungry one last point if you buy a bottle of prosecco it is only 5% which is the cheapest they can buy.Phil

We went to Farnham estate for a relaxing 2 day break and we weren't disappointed. Excellent first impression, the receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. Rooms were of an excellent standard. Food was delicious and we enjoyed the outdoor heated pool. We enjoyed it so much we have booked our next trip.

Yet another wonderful stay at the hotel. The staff couldn’t be more helpful from the moment you arrive until the time you depart. Nothing was too much trouble. Spa and leisure facilities are a must do, particularly if you want away from children, (under 16 not permitted, even with an adult). Breakfast, which consists of a Buffett, caters for everyone. The selection, from cereals, fresh fruit and yogurts, cold meats, salmon, cheeses, various breads will please the most discerning palate. Enjoyed a delicious evening meal in Maxwells Restaurant on the first night. Again the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and pleasant. Stayed in a standard king size room with slippers, bathrobes and coffee machine as standard. Ceramic ice buckets are on hand for those wanting to make use of the ice machines located in quiet areas of the hallways. While this room was more than adequate and spotlessly clean, it was strange it was lacking any drawer space. However this did not distract from two amazing and relaxing nights. And last but not least, many thanks to Bridie, the Guest Relations Manager, who, despite her workload, took the time and effort to ensure we had a wonderful time. Looking forward to our next visit already.

Excellant breakfast something for everyone but falls down on dinners in restaurant. Over priced and food sub standard. Food was cold and very small portions, potatoes hard. The pool was freezing and water jets not working outside which was a huge disappointment as pool best feature and spa area was too cold to lie on beds and relax.

My friend and I both celebrated our 40th birthdays this year and decided to treat ourselves to a wee night away instead of pressies. On arrival, the company bus collected us from the carpark and the fabulous George gave us such a warm welcome....asking us our names and singing happy birthday. He shared his knowledge about the history of Lord and Lady Farnham and their fabulous dwelling. He was so informative and enthusiastic about his stories...showing a real passion for his job. Our modern room and spa facilities were lovely and, although a lot of maintenance/building work was going on in the vicinity of both, we had a relaxing time using the facilities and a great sleep in a very comfortable bed. Slightly disappointed when we went for dinner in the bar and they had ran out of many drinks/garnish items (Tia maria, kahlua, mint leaves and grand marnier) needed to make our favourite cocktails. However, our lovely waitress gave us ideas of other similar drinks they could make us instead. After a fabulous night in the cellar, exploring the underground area of the hotel, we sat in the reception area with a nightcap. The night staff supervisor Marianne enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the local area, the beautiful original stately home and the history about the Farnham family. A real treat was when she gave us a private tour of the fabulous old building, pointing out some of the unique and original features. We were so enthralled listening to her stories and enjoying her craic...a perfect end to a wonderful day. Thank you Marianne😘 After a delicious breakfast we enjoyed a 5mile walk around the many acres of Farnham estate. Beautiful scenery and easy walk for all abilities Looking forward to planning a return trip to this great venue

Was staying in one of the Farnham Estate over the weekend with the girls and had such a lovely time, the house was perfect, and the spa and pool was so relaxing. Will be coming back in a heart beat, the only thing I would have to complain about was the menu in the cedar room as the menu was very small.
