A large group of us called in the Farnham Arms on Saturday 29th February last year on a bus trip. It was a cold day with sleet coming down when we arrived into Cavan town. We received a very warm welcome when we arrived into the front lounge / bar which was brilliant serving excellent draught beer and great large screens for any sporting occasion. We were so impressed with the Farnham Hotel that we decided to return in the evening for a meal which was not originally booked. Within 5 minutes Michael the manager had everything organised, really impressed as there was 30 of us. We returned in the evening to delicious sirloin steaks with all the trimmings. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Thank you very much to Michael and his team we had a very enjoyable day and your kind warm hospitality and fantastic food was very much appreciated by all of us. Thank you.

We just called into this hotel for a bite to eat. The staff were very welcoming and Covid 19 restrictions were well enforced. The barman explained that as my wife ordered roasted great of chicken for dinner that this order usually takes about 30 minutes to cook which in my eyes is the sign of a great staff member. The meal was of excellent quality and well worth the wait? I would highly recommend this hotel and restaurant to everyone.

Was looking forward to our one night stay and spa at Farnham estate. Firstly we’d like to knowledge the spa therapist who where extremely friendly and talented , but unfortunately the rest of our experience was a little disappointing. Our room had a terrible view of a side walk way and bush . Our room privacy was poor . There was no bin in the room other than a tiny bathroom bin. No in room entertainment (TV channels poor) or music that we could sit back and relax to while resting. Everything else room wise was just ok . Dinning experience unfortunately wasn’t great either . No vegan or vegetarian options on main menu , but when asked there was an alternative menu available. Extremely long wait for food and restaurant staff were clearly under pressure. On check out we expressed our surprise that our spa treatment was more expensive and didn’t match our booking. We had no email confirmation or text message confirmation confirming the booking and booking calls conveniently aren’t recorded as any form of evidence . We paid the full invoice on check out after speaking to the manager who committed to reviewing the situation and call us back which of course never happened. I hate to write a negative review , but considering the high price of the stay and lack of follow up this one star is deserved and I’m just telling our story as it was . Hopefully management can implement a simple improvement plan, and I’d like to see them at their best in the future , but unfortunately we won’t be returning .

Stayed here for 4 nights on business while doing night shift work. Lovely hotel and kept extremely clean. All Covid-19 procedures followed. Food was excellent in all sections of the hotel. Owner and staff were very friendly and great to deal with. Plenty of parking at back of hotel. Rooms had all in them that you'd need for an overnight stay. Hotel is situated on Main Street of Cavan so quick access to local shops and other retail stores. Can't really fault any of the hotel.

This hotel is located in a great place. Sadly, I will NOT be back as a guest again as the owner is NOT a nice person. It's what it is. As a person that spent the bulk of his career in the business, it's nice to be nice. Peter Flood
