The hotel looks like a house: pebble-dashed white walls and sat on a main road with car parking to the rear. It has a restraunt, but for guests only with dishes prepared from scratch as you wait. This includes cooked breakfast so give them, or rather him, plenty of notice of what time you want your food if you have... More

This is a nice boutique hotel. I have now stayed three times over the years. It is only a short walk into Farnham and there is on site parking. I have always found it to be immaculately clean and the staff are friendly and welcoming. I have stayed in the rooms which are designed in subtly gothic and oriental styles.... More

We were really looking forward to a relaxing, intimate and romantic break but alas, no. On arrival we were welcomed by a very helpful, smiling and sociable lady and shown to our room. The room was very nice (Decadence), no bath but a great shower. We then went downstairs for a drink at the bar at which point the first... More

We don’t normally reply as most of our reviews are excellent, but we really want to answer this one, especially because we find it unfair and misleading. First of all, please remember that Hotel de Vie is a unique type of accomodation: it is an 8 bedroom guests-only hotel, that provides a relaxing, private atmosphere for people to switch off... More

My boyfriend surprised me with a nights stay here, and what a surprise it was. This is a lovely, unique hotel with bedrooms and communal areas clean and tidy and everything you needed for a comfortable stay available. There's even an extra surprise in a box in the wardrobe. The ladies we spoke to on reception each day were friendly... More

What can I say, Our stay was absolutely fantastic, the room was great and the service was brilliant. Staff were more than happy to help whenever you needed them :) the food was great and the private bar was a brilliant idea. Will be staying here again if I'm ever in the area again.

Stayed at the Hotel De Vie for my wife's birthday. The room was fantastic, clean and well furnished. The communal areas were quirky and well looked after and the staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were great, could not have asked for more from a small boutique hotel. Breakfast was outstanding making our stay complete. We would highly recommend... More

This is a small boutique hotel just outside of Farnham town centre. It has 8 rooms all themed. The staff were very attentive and polite and we had a very good breakfast in good time too. It is a couples venue and good for a romantic break. Highly recommended.

Too many times the term Boutique hotel is banded about to excuse small rooms or high prices, not in this case. Was welcomed at the door by a very friendly helpful lady who showed me into the bar area which is open to guests only. The area was very nice and had well stacked bar a far throw from the... More
