We stayed here mid week for one night. We had an upgrade to the Parisian Room. On arrival we were greeted by nice friendly staff at this small hotel which only has 8 rooms. There is a bar and eating area downstairs. They offer complementary tea,coffee, juices, crisps, nuts and biscuits from the bar area. They can cook in the... More

We only stayed for one night but would happily stay for more and return. Staff were so polite and always happy to help and make you fell comfortable. We got a sneaky peak at all the rooms because we were the last people to leave the hotel and all the rooms are absolutely beautiful, all different and have there own... More

This boutique hotel, which is about 10 minutes' walk from the town and the railway station, was clearly originally a private house or houses and is situated on the corner of a main road (Firgrove Hill) and a side street (Arthur Road). The entrance into the hotel and car park is located in the side street. From the moment we... More

What a delightful find. Spotlessly clean, fresh breakfast, individually designed rooms with a warm atmosphere. This one will definitely go on my "return to" list. The staff/owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The lady who did breakfast was knowledgeable on the area & offered plenty of suggestions on where to go & what to do.

We had the most amazing night in the Scarlet Suite, which might be the most unusual and quirky hotel room I've ever stayed in. Thank you, Hotel De Vie!! I promise we'll be back. (And yes, people, do try the swings. You're in for a treat. )

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
