We were visiting friends in the village and decided to spend one night at the Farthings instead of heading home late at night. We booked via booking.com and we weren't expecting much for the price. Was surprised to get the Beech room which is huge, big big bed, settee, tea and ccoffee making facilities, nice bathroom. We didn't know there... More

Stayed here for an overnight stopover on a business journey to Exeter. Lovely food, friendly service (but probably a little understaffed) comfy and clean bedrooms, £75 room only (last minute deal). Cooked breakfast a little disappointing and the local bacon was inedible - sorry local bacon producer!! Wifi was a bit hit and miss.

Very many thanks for your review and delighted that you enjoyed. Our home-cured (dry cured) bacon is as it used to be 40- years ago before the Supermarket "wet" liquid pumped, fast cured bacon was developed, wafer then, leeking water, shriveling to nothing and tasting of nothing. I am guessing that you are too young (lucky you) to remember how... More

We booked this hotel because I purchased a Wowcher deal. It was for 2 nights for 2 people B&B. We booked a third night. We also had our dog which was an additional £8 per night. We were in Sandalwood room, it was huge with a really big bathroom with bath and shower too. Really big thick towels which is... More

Thanks for your lovely review and delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Wi-fi connectivity is probably more to do with your laptop sensivity than the Hotel service, the especially thick walls do not help but in the lounge and dining room you should get a very good signal. We have 2 seperate servers here and boosters too, so... More

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are helpful and friendly, the decor cosy and inviting, the room very comfortable and the food fresh, local and tasty. The only thing we would rate down would be the bathroom is carpeted, and although it looked spotlessly clean I would be concerned at it holding damp... More

Most people know I am a fan of this place, but if something is good then it deserves to be lauded. The team at Farthings continue to work so hard at making their product the best around.

A lovely little Hotel with delightful staff, who were helpful in every respect! Love the Smeg Fridge on the Landing for cold milk for your morning tea on the balcony of your room! so much nicer than UHT tubs in a room that most hotels use! After booking the manager tried to sort out a spot for the Helicopter to... More

My husband and I had his birthday dinner at Farthings. The meal was delicious - no better steak anywhere!! The service was exceptional - charming young people, nothing was too much trouble. Heard other people praising the staff and food - well done Farthings.

When we first arrived and parked around the side of the hotel the first impression was not good as the smell was somewhat rustic (presumable due to the amount of wildlife to the rear of the property. However, we quickly got over that as the building itself was quite charming and the staff very welcoming. We did not notice the... More

We stayed 1 night at the Farthings Hotel and wished we had booked for longer. The Hotel was everything we had hoped for and more. The Garden Room was gorgeous! And we had no idea when we booked how good the food was going to be. Dinner was delicious and breakfast extra special (what fabulous bacon!) There were so many... More

So pleased you enjoyed, sorry you did not dine with us - I am sure that if you ask for a 1-course meal or even a starter and pudding, you would have found the team quite accommodating. Maybe next time? Best wishes John & Team More
