Reviewed 16 October 2015

Farthings is a small and delightful hotel that I would very much return to. I stayed in the family room Rowan which is spacious with a huge comfortable bed, two sofa beds and a cot if needs be. The room has tea and coffee facilities, complimentary biscuits, bottled water and a hairdryer. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

We had a fabulous weekend at the Farthings - room, food, staff and hotel animals (especially Sasha the dog) all exceeded our expectations. We stayed in room Bay - a very large room with fantastic decor and a spiral staircase up to the bathroom! In the evening, we dined in the cosy restaurant which served a wide selection of lovely...

Ideally located close to M5 and A303 the Farthings provides the perfect place to rest on journeys between South east England or the Midlands and Devon and Cornwall. Provides traditional hospitality as a contrast to stressful living and travelling

We stayed in the Sandalwood room on the floor above the ground floor, and it was a good room. This is a very old hotel. The food was very good, including local poultry and meat. Our hair blow dryer did blow out, in spite of our transformer. They are a bit disorganized, and the billing was not correct, so I...

Stayed one night. Face value all fine. Having paid nearly £30 for a two course dinner, with the main course called three meats, came out like a tin of dog food. Boiler was next to my room, which kept me up for a fair bit of time during the night. Having quietly asking reception to look into it, I was...

We at the Farthings take all reviews very seriously and investigate any negative feed back so we can ensure that it doesn't happen to any future guests. To this end I first contacted chef and the waiting staff that worked the evening of your stay, the staff said you ate the entire of your food except the skin of the...

We stayed for one night on way to Dorset. The room we were allocated was on the top floor and was enormous. There was a very comfortable bed, a sitting area with large TV and yet another area of space. Tea and Coffee making facilities were provided in the room with fresh milk available from a fridge on the landing....

This hotel was a joy to be in for our four day break (bed & breakfast plus dinner). We both needed a restful time in beautiful surroundings - and this place was perfect. Hatch Beauchamp is a quiet village, very old and unspoilt - and the lovely old hotel building itself is located well within it. The gardens of the...
