My boyfriend and I visited the Radisson in March for a midweek break. We only stayed for one night but had such a nice break away. The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous with nice walks and views, thankfully we got lucky with the weather so were able to enjoy the walks! We visited the spa both that evening and the next morning and found it so relaxing! It's wasn't too busy so we could avail of all the facilities! The outdoor pool, was definitely our favourite! Our room was really spacious and was spotlessly clean! It's nice to have a bath and a stand alone shower in a hotel room, not something you would see everywhere. We ate in the cellar bar that evening where there was a real buzz, especially for a Wednesday night! The food was gorgeous and very reasonably priced! Will definitely be taking a trip back there.

We stayed in this quality hotel over the May bank holiday. Simply the best hotel we have stayed in.
The leisure centre & spa are perfect chill out zones (no children allowed in this area-pure heaven!).
Top class food in restaurant served by very friendly staff. Super amenities:fishing, golf, woodland walks. We went on a very informative & interesting guided walk (sunday at 12:30) of the estate with George, a true gentleman. A hidden gem. Can't wait to return...

Room Tip: Request a woodland view.

Stayed here for a romantic getaway for two days.overall very good and I would go back but there are just very small things letting this hotel down. Our room was great apart from a tall light that didn't work and the shade was badly stained and a bit of mould in the grout at the bottom of the shower, easily fixed. The black furniture under the tv had chips but this didn't annoy us.

The thermal spa is grand. Pool is great, beds are great again just very small things. Some parts of the snail showers didn't work. It said blue light, there was no blue light. again mould on the grout. The foot walk, some of the basins didn't work and there was mould over the jets. Broken tiles in the sauna. General wear and tear overall and certain paintwork needing touched up badly. The steam rooms were great. The ice fountain plentiful. There are just so many small things needing done and not difficult to do at all so it's a shame they are not being done. It closes at 8 so there is plenty of time for general maintenance. Ambiance brilliant and the smells everywhere and relevant music very relaxing.

Overall very good and I would love to go again. You are just letting ourself down on these small issues for a four star Farnham Estate.

We (a couple plus toddler) stayed here for a weekend in late April as part of a family wedding. It's a lovely hotel but not without it's issues. We stayed on a 2 night B&B plus one evening meal package. This covered both adults but the child's meal was separate.

Upon arriving at the hotel there is an immediate problem: parking. The car park is a few hundred metres away from the main building. There is a shuttle bus and, apparently, valet parking, but when 50 cars arrive at once as part of a wedding party these options just don't scale. So there was chaos at the front door as cars tried to drop off their 'loads' and head back to the car park. This seems like a major problem that should have been solved by now.

The hotel is very nice. Stylish and modern. It has an excellent spa facility and a decent gym that was nice and empty. And the grounds are lovely with some nice trails for running/walking. The dining room used for the wedding was nice but clearly designed for business events more than intimate weddings.

The bedrooms were nicely decorated with a rather odd hatch by the bed's headboard that looks into the bathroom! Like many hotels there is just too much furniture in the bedrooms. The large chaise longue at the end of our bed was complete surplus to requirent and served only to trip our toddler up, dishing out a black eye in the process. Poor mite.

The only other issue we noticed was some rather shoddy service for the family meal that was included in the package deal. The food was slow to arrive and incomplete and we had to ask twice for missing dishes before they arrived.
