perhaps the weather was slightly off putting, but the location outside of Broadway and the estate itself are excellent. This is a typical convention hotel and lacks charm. The room was comfortable and spacious, clean and reasonably well appointed. Bathroom modern and clean. The reception service leaves a good deal to be desired, though not unfriendly, it was very matter... More

As you drive out of Broadway and climb the hill the views of the Cotswolds are fabulous turn off and drive towards Farncombe and you will love the setting for this establishment. Be warned if you stay here book a twin room as the doubles are very small. This is a conference centre and it is geared up for the... More

Room was very clean and neat. Bed was extremely comfortable. Quietness ensured good night's sleep. Staff very pleasant. Thought we might be disturbed by other people here for conferences, but all was good. Great value for money with a good breakfast included.

Nothing too bad to say, nothing too good to say. Standard room was small, I hate to think was a small double was like. Ate from the bar menu, steak wasn't great, and I would have expected hand cut/double cooked type chips, rather than McDonalds type fries. Grounds are fantastic, pity I didn't get to use them.

I stayed here overnight with my wife after travelling from Oxford to Broadway on a sight seeing holiday of the UK. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our accommodation, set in a magnificent 400 acre estate with superb views out over the surrounding district. Our room & bathroom were spotlessly clean. The location is totally quiet. The breakfast... More

Lovely setting and rooms, let down by conflicting information and poor customer service. Checked breakfast times in booklet in room at 9am. Breakfast stated as 8 till 9. So thought we had missed it. Check out stated as 10am. Had housekeeping trying to get in at 9.45. Was looking through other info as leaving at 10 and saw on back... More

Farncombe Estate has been developed mainly as a conference center and has excellent facilities catering for every conceivable size of meeting. Along with the various buildings tucked in and around the estate are dedicated bedroom blocks as well as buildings which combine meeting rooms, coffee areas etc. The Bed and Breakfast hotel part of the estate enjoys modern ecofriendly rooms...

We stayed 3 nights as it was a good location to visit the Cotswolds. It's a very large conference centre with lots of different accommodation options. It's located on top of a mountain with spectacular views and central location to broadway. Great meals in a central restaurant with relaxing bar area. Breakfast included in accommodation and free coffee and tea... More

Booked for a weekend away and weren't disappointed. Handily placed for most Cotswolds attractions. Good facilities, clean and comfortable (booked a superior room and got upgraded to deluxe). Only used the restaurant for breakfast which was good but nothing exceptional. Farncombe is primarily a conference centre, as is abundantly clear from the website, and spreadout on a hillside, which will... More

A group of us wanted three separate rooms close to Broadway so that we could attend a family party. After years in cramped box rooms at Halls of Residence whilst at uni we were a bit concerned about staying at a conference centre. We need not have worried. Farncombe offers very modern, spacious and well equipped rooms with tasteful en... More
