My wife and I were married at the Bush Hotel at the end of May 2014, we had a wonderful day and the hotel were fantastic. The staff couldn't have done anything more to make the day more complete than it was. The venue was just what we wanted, flexible enough to be indoors if the weather doesn't want to... More

The good aspects: centrally located, near castle and shops. Parking- free to residents. Breakfast was also ok. The bad: service in general.. only 1 person on reception - although usually a second person around but not dealing with those waiting.. bar- very slow and lucky if you can find anyone. They are also not overly friendly and the receptionists did... More

I have used this venue, on a number of occassions, for informal business meetings. The last two occassions have been breakfast meetings; as the food is good and the tables adequately spaced for a private chat. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. We were still chatting as they started to lay up other tables for lunch, so we offered... More

We arrived late on a Friday evening and greeted by friendly staff on reception. The lady informed us the bar served food from 9-11pm which was a God send given our long journey. Upon entering the room on the 3rd floor (note no lifts in the hotel) we couldn't get in due to faulty keys but even when they were... More

Stayed here for a wedding last weekend. It is in all honesty, an average to good hotel but nothing special. The room was fine apart from the blind being rickety and set at a 45 degree angle that had to be fiddled with for some time to get straight again. The room itself was OK but nothing more than you...

Farnham is a lovely town but one thing it doesn't have is a decent hotel. I can't work out whether they just don't want visitors or they don't know how to make people feel welcome. As someone who lived in Farnham for nine years it pains me to say this, but where is the welcome at The Bush? They make... More

As afternoon teas go this wasn't bad but it wasn't great either ..... very average. The cakes were shop brought apart from the scones that were the size of 50p pieces hard and flat. Plenty of clotted cream but the jam was the cheaper variety with no bits or flavour ..... The sandwiches were ample although the fillings a little... More

WHY NOT? It is a beautiful building with a rich history. Part of the attraction for me was that I had been thrown out of The Bush Hotel in 1970 when I was an Art student at Farnham Art School (the reason being that I had long hair). My return was therefore a whimsical act of vengeance. I must say... More

The main part of the hotel is rather dated, and rooms could do with an urgent modernisation and change of furniture... having said this, the room we received was spacious, modern and clean, with a patio out onto the inner court yard (we were in a new section of the hotel which clearly had been either decorated / built). However... More
