“A wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We have just returned from a much needed break away at Barnham Broom Hotel, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who needs some down time.The hotel is in the most beautiful setting. My husband was very impressed with the look of both courses, although didn't play as we were only away for one night.
The staff are friendly, polite yet unintrusive.The staff on reception in particular were very helpful.
The room was gorgeous,the decor sumptuous, we stayed in a junior suite and to be honest I could have stayed there for the entire 24 hours it was so roomy.
On arrival we were served afternoon tea, which despite deciding we couldn't possibly finish all the sandwiches, and delicious cakes and scones that were brought to us, somehow managed to without too much trouble at all?
Dinner in the evening was beautifully served and once again delicious, the Brasserie has only recently been reopened and has been refurbished to a very high standard, we ate in the early evening and were lucky enough to have the stunning vista of the golf course to look out onto whilst being served dinner.
The sports bar was lively as the American Open was on, but the lounge bar was also open if you were in need of a little peace and quiet.
Breakfast again was wonderful and the choice was excellent, I did wonder at the size of the full english whether having had one there was a strong possibility of not playing to your handicap out on the course for the front 9, but hey what do I know, it looked delicious.
Two hours spent reading the papers out on the sun terrace with coffee finished our "time out" perfectly, and for me, the not wanting to leave said it all.
Thanks to all the staff, and we will be back, to sample the spa and the golf.

Just returned from Barnham having spent 5 enjoyable days of golf. Myself and eleven friends have been visiting each June for the last16 years and have seen many changes. The hotel and golf courses have always been excellent however we always treated the restaurant as a joke due to strange dress codes, insufficient servings and bad service. This year we arrived to a new makeover in the restaurant now called 'The Brasserie ' and boy have they nailed it !!! Food was excellent and plentiful and the staff could not do enough for us. Although not meant as a complaint, one of our party mentioned that there could have been more vegetables with the meal to one of the staff. This obviously got back to the Chef who ensured that our future meals were not short of Veg, and introducing himself and ensuring we were pleased with our meal. Well done Barnham, will see you next year.

Room Tip: If visiting for golf suggest afternoon tee off times as it becomes very quiet on both courses after...

Just got back from a golf weekend at Brnham broom, this is my 4th visit here and although we had a superb weekend the hotel seems like it is getting every last penny it can out of you and would definatly look for a bit more value for next trip....

Examples of bar prices....£4.50 for a pint of beer!!..... £10 for a Tuna sandwich with a coffee!! that a child could have presented better

Restaurant on the evening was very average...once again charging over the top for any side orders £2.75 portion of about 7 chips... that were served to you after you had finshed your main meal!!! £8 for a glass of very average wine!

Did not get to try the breakfast as I got fed up with waiting for waiter to arrive

The 2 golf courses were both in good condition..challenging and interesting although the greens were rock hard and could have done with watering

on check out had to question my bill as there were items on there that could not be justified!

Although overall weekend was very enjoyable it was due to the company we shared as oppose to the hotel...

I would therefore not recommend this hotel and would say there are many others that offer far better value for a weekend break

6 of us stayed here on the 8th June 2013 for 1 night. It was a gift for my birthday. My father in law,brother in law and myself played 2 rounds of golf. Valley course on Saturday and Hills on sunday.(I prefered the valley course) and the girls all had spa treatments. The hotel was lovely and my room (66) was a really good size. Slightly bigger than the other 2. The bed was wonderful and the samsung smart tv on the wall was a surprise. The room was very clean and better than I expected. The 3 course evening meal was 1st class. Standard of food was superb. Breakfast was nice. Continental and cooked available. Just what you need before another round of golf. All in all I feel that this is a great location for both golf lovers and a relaxing break. Hats off to the green keepers. Great job. I will be returning. Thats a guarantee.

The smell of this hotel was amazing......I know, it sounds a strange thing to write about, but after a stressful couple of weeks at home my partner took me to this wonderful hotel and I shall never forget the smell!!
We had a lovely stay, all the staff were polite and helpful, room was nicely done with a huge TV! The food was a very good standard and we hope to go again soon.
Thank you!

Went away overnight with friends for a relaxing few days. Had a very pleasant stay. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The afternoon tea served in lounge was an added bonus. The newly refurbished restaurant was very good. Food was delicious and service was excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was very comfortable and relaxing. The hotel exceeded our expectations. My husband said the golf course was very enjoyable. The indoor pool did not have a separate jacuzzi therefore water was same temperature as pool. Jacuzzi was also part of childrens pool which could be improved.
