We had had a horrid journey so when we arrived at the Farthings we were tired and fed up with driving, but as soon as we entered we were made to feel so welcome our stress vanished and we started to enjoy the wonderful aura of this hotel. We stayed in a room called oak which had views over the... More

Arrived very late, was able to get checked in to room after a short wait. Many of the reviews talk about the staff - personally I prefer not to be hassled and I felt the staff were available if I needed them. Cooked and continental breakfast options available. Much nicer than travel lodge etc and more cosy than the larger... More

Great country hotel, far better than the Travelodge and chain hotels. "Proper country hotel" in a charming village. Not a lot going on locally, but we stayed after a day at the races in Taunton. Staff were friendly, booked us a taxi, sorted out our rooms etc. Bar is excellent value at £2 per pint, and there is a lovely... More

Stayed here over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Food was excellent and plenty of it. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Our room was very comfortable with a large comfortable bed. Sofa and chair and large TV made it a home from home. Our room had a spiral staircase up to... More

sadly we were on our usual one night stop over, but a late rooms deal found us at Farthings, what a lovely lovely place, immaculate in every way. Next time we WILL sample the food at dinner and breakfast, the reports I read are all good

Delicious meals, well presented and so good that it wasn't a 'carvery' - crab cakes were particularly good. We enjoyed having our postprandial coffee by a real fire and are already looking forward to visiting again.

We stayed here on NYE and the 1st Jan to get some peace and quiet away from London. We certainly got that and it was a pleasure to be woken by the sound of ducks and geese in the morning. We stayed in Rowan on the top floor and it was a very comfortable, spacious suite with a TV and... More

Welcome and staffing excellent. Good friendly efficient service. Unfortunately the food was not good,especially the turkey roast. The turkey was dry, the roast potatoes were soft and white and the vegetables were uncooked(not lightly cooked) This was the first time we booked Christmas Lunch at a restaurant and it was expensive at £95 pp. How disappointing.
