An intimate, privately owned and managed 18th century hotel in the heart of this beautiful town offering comfortable en-suite bedrooms, fine dining, cafe/bar, and excellent personal service from a team of dedicated staff.
The Plum Brasserie is no ordinary hotel restaurant; it is recognized as one of the finest Brasseries in the area for both its fine cuisine and excellent service.
Farnham has easy links to London, and a number of local places of interest.
Stayed 1 night in room at back. From 3pm on, other guests partied in courtyard right next to rooms with takeaway food & alcohol. Skeleton hotel staff. Only on call after 5pm. Restaurant closed. Simple buffet breakfast. Would not stay again.
34 of us stayed for one night in this hotel, the night before our daughters wedding in Farnham Castle. The manager Warren was extremely helpful and made our stay that much more welcoming, without him the stay may have been totally different. We all booked over a year ago when our daughters wedding was initially booked for May 2021, but then Covid struck and everything was postponed. When initially booking we had a cooked breakfast included in our special rate but when we all arrived a year later we were informed that the restaurant was closed due to Covid and that we would have a continental breakfast brought to our rooms. Of course we were not happy about this but as we were a large party and already booked we had no choice. Warren the manager changes this for us and opened the restaurant so that we could all go downstairs to have breakfast, even though it was still continental. He also opened the bar for our party and tended bar himself. The rooms were all quirky, large rooms, had everything we needed and were clean and comfortable. Even providing and iron & ironing board in the wardrobe. Shower was a bit hit and miss, but it’s an old property. Location is great, in the centre of Farnham and there is parking, (through a quite tight arch into the courtyard behind the hotel) although it can get a bit tight. It helped that our party all knew each other so we could block each other in and then create a bit more space. Again Warren was on hand to help manoeuvre and guide the cars into the correct places. We had a transit van and managed OK with a bit of breathing in. All in all a good night, would have given 5 stars if a cooked breakfast was available, the continental was a poor selection.…
Lovely spot and great staff! We stayed for one night only as it was our short get away weekend. The receptionist lady was lovely and super helpful, bed were comfortable and bathrooms clean and tidy. The restaurant is still closed unfortunately however with the wide range of restaurants that Farnham has to offer it does not make a difference. The hotel is very close to the Lion and Lamb Yard, about 10 minutes away from the castle and right in front of university so if you’re looking for a place to stay at while visiting someone at university- this is a lovely spot. We will definitely come back!
Great location and free parking was a bonus especially being on the high street. Staff were friendly and the bathroom was modern. Unfortunately some of the lights and plug sockets didn't work and the bedroom was a bit tired and could do with a bit of renovation.
This property should not even be called a hotel. The on-line portrayal says there is a bar and restaurant, but not so. They are only dark unused rooms. As near as we could tell in the eight days we stayed there, this is the only bar or restaurant that is shuttered, apparently due to covid terror. Our room was crowded with not even a place to set our suitcases other than the floor. Room maintenance consisted of us putting any trash or used linens outside the door. From noon to sometime in the late afternoon and then for all the overnight hours no management or staff is on the premises, so don't have a crisis during about half of the day. The absence of a person during daytime hours was especially vexing to us because we ordered and paid for two covid test kits to satisfy the 48 hour before departure requirements of the airlines. These kits were brought to the hotel front door but no one was there to receive them. We had to resort to traveling to the next town to visit a test center to meet our travel requirements, This cost us an extra $ 375 in addition to the undelivered $240 tests. For all of this lack of service we were charged and paid the full room rate. WE WOULD NOT VISIT THIS HOTEL AGAIN EVEN IF IT WERE FREE.…
