“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Just spent 3 nights at Farnborough over Christmas while visiting relatives. Didn't expect too much in view of time of year and some reviews. Was really pleased. Excellent value for money. Rooms very clean and comfy. Breakfasts good and staff cheerful, particularly the guy in charge of the restaurant. Pool facilities superb. Dogs welcome too which is a bonus for us!

Room Tip: Ask if want a quiet room. Staff will help out if they can.

Visited the De Vere Village Farnborough recently for a Christmas party and stayed over for the night. The hotel is generally good and has a decent health/sports club with a good large swimming pool. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The big let down was the food at the party. It was probably the worst meal I have ever had! The starter was cold and the turkey and potatoes in the main course were cold, tough and almost inedible. Had it not been a party, the food would definitely have been sent back.

At a large party, you do make some allowance for the large number of people but, in this case, the quality of food fell well below an acceptable standard. Other people I spoke to also said the food was awful. The cost of the party and food alone was about £40 a head, so the food seems a complete rip-off.

The breakfast buffet the following morning was better, but the food was far too cold.

To be fair, the party was good fun with a good DJ, but the food at the party was shocking!

Even though I unwrapped a brand new Tom Tom on the morning we left...it still didn't find it, so if you have a similar problem look for sign post to Farnborough Business Park.
Two things I like in a hotel....lots of free parking and free wi-fi, even in the bedrooms.
Looked very nice on entering...real looking fire and xmas decoraions. However, I agree with a previous reviewer, all the staff looked scruffy in jeans and fleece jackets. Also disagree with the reviewer who said the staff seemed comfortable. The receptionist who blooked us in said she hated looking like that and was embarrassed wearing jeans. They were not even uniform jeans, some had skinny jeans
Onto the bedroom.....a nice room. No toiletries or tissues, just the soap machine on the wall by the sink and in the shower room. Nice big walk in shower but I really dislike those big shower heads on the ceiling and they did not have any shower caps. Inconvenient not to have any hooks either.
Two bulbs not working in the room. A guy did fix them quickly but this sort of thing should be checked before guests arrive. Even with all the bulbs working, the room is quite dark.
There was a bit of shouting going on in the corridor during the evening from a family which we then had the misfortune to encounter again at breakfast. Adults and children arrived while we were eating. Children arriving in their pajamas, maybe ok...but then a women arrived in her pajamas and bare feet and attending to a baby. We are talking a very skimpy outfit. Instead of the guy on the door suggesting they go back and get dressed he showed them to a table. We left.
When we complained at reception they said there had been other comments about them from other guests.
All this, of course, is probably a one off.
I did speak to the Manager, whose manner I did not like. He said a Scottish Company was running the De Vere and that all staff would be wearing jeans and fleece. I said when I pay to stay in a hotel I expect to be greeted by smart looking people and made to feel special. He said it was like me complaining I didnt like the uniforms in B & Q......Stupid man...really !!! Does he want to compare the De Vere with a DIY store ?

Great to have lots of facilities all in one place ! Room was brilliant ... the bed was soooo comfortable, modern & clean. Food at the Chop House restaurant was very good but drinks were pricey. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good cooked breakfast, buffet style .... all fresh produce.

Took a friend for dinner at the Chop House. We were greeted in a really polite manner. Shown to a nice table by Christmas Tree. We ordered and our food came, presented really well and cooked great. We enjoyed our meal, tested ourselves to desert which we really enjoyed........ The chophouse is the new little gem of Farnborough. My friend loved her fishcakes and my sausage and mash was fab, good British food, served simply and cooked well. Would recommend and already planning to take friends again soon.

Just stayed at the Farnborough Village hotel with my family and friends and had a superb night. The hotel rooms were really comfortable and really quiet. There are all the facilities we needed for our stay and we didn't need to leave the hotel once. All the staff were fantastic and made the trip even better. It's a one stop shop hotel! Look forward to our return.
