“Beautiful place , but !!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Really enjoyed our recent stay in this beautiful venue but be very careful in booking your standard double room as they are away from the main building and the size of a shoe box , go the extra for a superior double , that said, it is a wonderful place with really good staff and management .

Had lunch at Fanhams yesterday (Sunday) and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much choice for starter which was salad - different kinds of fish cut into small pieces which was nice. Prawns/smoked salmon/meats. Main course was the carvery of beef or pork with trimmings and dessert was fresh fruit miniature donuts/marshmellows with choc fondue and cheese cake. Again so much choice. Would recommend

Went for sunday lunch with our neighbours at the weekend and was most impressed . It is a beautiful period hotel in picturesque grounds, made all the better by the weather on the day! We had a drink in the very comfortable bar adjacent to the restaurant and were then shown to our table by a very friendly young lady who explained how things worked! The waitress for our table, Kate, was very pleasant and helpful and brought the wine we ordered, nicely chilled in an ice bucket. The starter table was an array of delicious hors d'oeu'vres, including various fish, cold meats and salads. there was also soup and crusty rolls as an option. The hot carvery comprised beef and pork with all the trimmings. The dessert table had a varied choice and it was difficult to choose as they were all delicious, the chocolate fountain was certainly popular! We finished with coffee which rounded off a thoroughly enjoyable lunch. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a good meal in beautiful surroundings and all in all very good value!

To Stephanie and all the team at Fanhams Hall!

We wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for everything you have done to make our wedding day (25/08/2012) so wonderful!! We have had so many compliments that it was the best wedding people have ever been to, and I know that all of you at Fanhams have a huge role to play in that!

The food was out of this world, by far the best meal we have ever had in our lives! Our guests were also treated like royalty and everyone’s glasses were kept topped up. Everything ran so smoothly, thanks to the fantastic Function Manager, meaning we had nothing to worry about but enjoying our perfect day and trying to take it all in, as it just flew by!!

You made us feel so special right from the very first meeting, and we knew this was the perfect place to hold the biggest day of our lives! So thank you for making everything so perfect and stress free!

We look forward to years of celebrations with you at Fanhams, with your gorgeous Cream Teas and Sunday carvery’s, we just cannot stay away from our new favourite place in the world!!!
Thanks again!!

We attended a wedding reception at Fanhams Hall Hotel on Sunday, 30th September 2012. As you drive up the building is very impressive and has beautiful gardens. Inside it did not let us down. The staff were all friendly, efficient and well informed. Nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were lovely. We had a very large comfortable bed and everywhere was very clean and tidy. A great experience that we would highly recommend. Give it a try, they do some excellent offers.

Room Tip: Rooms in old building seem to have the biggest beds. Important if your husband, like mine, is 6 6 ft...

My sisters wedding was due to take place on Sunday 30th so my husband & I along with many other guests checked in for both Saturday & Sunday night.
I cannot portray how fantastic the wedding was & this is due to the impeccable standards of customer service, hospitality & wonderful food. Every member of staff associated with ensuring the whole weekend was trouble free should get a pat on the back especially Richard the operations manager, nothing was ever any trouble.
I could not fault cleanliness/tidyness/service/food.
If my only quibble was I'd like a mini bar in the room then I must be happy!
