"Not up to standard"
3rd September 2013, TuftyN, Ramsey, United Kingdom
Great centre of town location. Room however was far from great. Banging doors from downstairs reverberated, tap that was loose, bathroom lights that came on and off and tired looking decor all made for an unsatisfactory stay. Avoid room 18 is all I can say !!View management response »

Stayed for my 40th. Booked the best rate to get nice little extras like robes, paper etc, however room was only set up for one person, no paper. Cards didnt work when getting to room in the wee hours so had to get re coded which was a pain. Raised issues with reception on departure and was dismissed with little more than a shrug. Complaint escalated through website but no response within a week yet. Can't say I can recommend the brand or this particular hotel for he service. Everything else seemed ok. Breakfast not bad.View management response »

"Christmas Shopping in Farnham"
13th December 2012, PacoTed, Southampton, United Kingdom
Great location for a short stay in Farnham and the staff are very attentive and friendly, the rooms however need a little updating. Loved the Oak Room, bar and restuarant, which are in the original building. The restuarant was very clean and well laid out, but it was a little cold - there was none or very little heating, however to menu was varied and when to food arrived it was well cooked and tasty. There is also a good variaty of restuarants actually in Farnham, so we were spoiled for choice. We would stay at this hotel again without hesitation.View management response »

"Overnight stay which was ok for the money, but....."
11th December 2012, LAD1981, Bexleyheath
The room was value for money and located close to the station in the heart of Farnham. However, we had to be moved as our non-smoking room stank of smoke. Additionally, one of the lounges was closed, meaning that only one bar was open which was packed all night.View management response »

We enjoyed our stay at the Bush as usual except for the food. Bar meal on artrival - my daughter asked for a panini with chicken. We had french bread (dry and hard) with chicken - no explanation. The three breakfasts were a bit of a disaster. No bacvon, scambled eggs, bread for toast, side plates. This is the first time this has happened in the Bush. My daughter and myself splashed out on an afternoon tea - when it arrived no cucumber sandwiches and apple instead of melon. No explanation or apology. My son and daughter in law live in Bentley near Farnham and we are always visiting and staying at the Bush. When they got married last year I had 17 family members staying at the Bush - they are still talking about it. They loved it. I hope this was a one-off with problems with the food.View management response »
Management responseDear marthamay545,Thank you for your review.It's always good to hear from such a regular visitor to the hotel and I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay with us.I understand that there were some issues with the food that you ordered during this visit, and I have passed your feedback on to our head Chef to pick up with his team, however I am pleased to hear that this has not been a problem on previous visits.

Absolutely dreadful, I paid for a double or twin, to have a single bed! The room was dirty the bath had hair in it! The bath did not even work! M room looked nothing like the pictures, I had to wait an additional 15 mins before I was allowed in my room! The lady who checked me in didn't even offer me a seat but took a phone call which seemed personal and whatever was said started bursting out laughing right in my face! Woud never stay here again, would of preferred a holiday in to be fair, not worth the money!
"A jewel of a hotel in need of a polish"
1st June 2012, SteveCameron, London, United Kingdom
The Bush Hotel Farnham is well located in central Farnham by shops and restaurants and is less than a 10 min walk from the railway station. It sits on a site that has as a history dating back to the 12th century and its exterior, main reception rooms and bar reflect its history with lovely wood panel walls, etc. The room we stayed in was sufficiently spacious, with a modern style which included the well finished shower room and a large extremely comfortable bed. Sadly other areas of the hotel especially the corridors are a mixture of different tired, paint chipped decors that spoil the potential ambience and lets down the image one expects from the usually good standard Accor group Hotels and I have stayed in many from Birmingham to Benin.So come on Accor group polish up this potential jewel of a hotel with and give its common area a decor that compliments its history and generates more of the character it deserves.Apart from that, the service was very good, especially on check in and the hotel has a lovely tranquil garden and court yard.
"Pleasant stay in Farnham"
21st May 2012
Pleasant hotel - I've stayed there on and off for about 15 years. I'm tired of being asked if I have stayed there before - they should recognise me by now. Pleasant rooms, poor service in the bar, but very pleasant when they finally arrived. Not a gteat selection in bar. Good breakfast. I'll keep on staying there when I am in the area - better than others close by. I just wish their parent company, Accor, would be a little more responsive to requests to becomae a member of their ,loyalty club

"3 dressed up as a 9"
25th January 2012, Halton, Bucks, UK
Overall satisfactory accomodation for those using the Conference centre as we were. The climate in the conference centre room was poorly controlled/cold. The radiant heat in the room was not switched on despite the fact that January is clearly within the winter period as outlined in the room directory. The meal we had in the dining room £18 for 3 courses was below par and if I used this hotel again I would eat elsewhere.View management response »

"Great Hotel nice town very convenient"
24th January 2012, Cherry Hill
I found myself visiting Farnham to visit one of our business partners and this trip they recomended I stay at the Farnham Bush hotel. Farnham is a wonderful little town and the Bush Hotel has all the charm and charachter the town has. The staff were wonderful and very accomidating. I needed a first floor room as I had surgery last fall and steps are still not easy. They made sure I had a convenient room on the first floor. After my first morning, the staff in the resturant knew me by name I will be brining my family back for a vacation at our earliest opportunity.View management response »

"Very nice hotel"
6th October 2011, RobBeth, Slough, United Kingdom
Stayed the night before my wedding with large group of family. Got a very good rate by booking non-refundable rooms several months in advance. Very nice hotel with a bit of character, nice spacious clean rooms with good bathrooms, nice bar area downstairs. Only slight downside was breakfast - expensive at £15 each. It was also very busy; nobody to greet us, take our room number and seat us etc. All the tables were full - and had to sit at a table that hadn't been cleaned - and nobody came over to clean it - and the staff didn't come over to ask us if we wanted tea/coffee etc - so we had to catch their eye and grab them ourselves. Probably just because they were busy - but expected slightly better service. Reception staff were great though - quick check-in/out, very helpful, and always with a smile!Would definately stay there again though.View management response »
