“Just What We Were Looking For...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2010

Having found the Hotel de Vie on the web, it seemed like the perfect place to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and get us in the holiday mood as were flying the next evening. On arrival, it appeared that we were the only guests. Our welcome was warm and friendly and it soon became clear that privacy and relaxation are high on the agenda. The Parisienne Dreams room is stunning, the super kingsize bed unbelievably comfortable and the huge bath was just what we'd hoped for. We didn't eat at the hotel that night, preferring instead to eat out in Farnham itself. The breakfast however was extremely tasty and very much appreciated. We found Roger and his staff to be very welcoming and I would recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a quiet, romantic time. Previous reviews have intimated that this hotel is over-priced, I find that incredibley harsh to be honest. Having searched around on the web I found this to be unbelievable value at £125 for the night with breakfast. I would also like to add that the hotel is very tastefully decorated and certainly not tacky in any way - as intimated by some reviews. Overall, it is highly recommended and we both look forward to returning to the Hotel de Vie at a later date.

Been a while since I stayed here but it's wearing well and still to be recommended. Good value for a comfortable sleep with great bedlinen, good shower and straightforward catering. The hotel does have an unusual and somewhat racey theme, which certainly breaks the monotony of the ubiquitous business hotel. Smile and enjoy.

Me and my boyfriend recently booked into the parisian dreams suite for one night. The room was very nice and the bath was just amazing! Plenty of hot water to keep it hot.
The room is bigger than it looks in the photos as it doesnt show the sofa and the area around it.
Didnt get a chance to really meet the staff but the hotel itself is nicely decorated and a nice atmosphere.
The only things i could say that would need improving would be to maybe get some air conditioning? I did get quite hot during the night and had to open the window. Some the reviews comment on the noisy traffic outside, this wasnt a problem till we had to open the window.
Also the dvd player on the tv was pretty rubbish, We bought a new dvd to watch and it kept skipping, but this didnt bother us to much as its not what we booked the hotel for :-)
It was less than a 5 minute walk to/from the train station which is handy and its a short walk to the high street which is a nice walk if the weather is nice (we werent too lucky)
All together i think the hotel is great if your a couple looking for a nice night together and i would recomend this hotel to people!

Have just returned from a perfect night away at De Vie. From the moment we arrived we felt totally relaxed. The design throughout is very tasteful, the rooms are spotlessly clean (we stayed in the decadance room which I have to say is absolutely beautiful), food great and staff friendly and welcoming. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel - not only to other couples seeking a romantic night away - but to others too as, whilst there is a lovers theme to the hotel (erotic artwork and love swing - boxed, under the bed) it is very tastefully appointed throughout and it is clear from speaking to Roger, the owner, that the hotel is used by a wide range of customers. We shall certainly be returning soon...

Stayed at this hotel, overall was enjoyable few days.

Nice interior, room fine and breakfast good.

Although what lets this place down is in its value for money.

Having stayed in Farnham a few times, would recommend the Farnham B&B, 5 star b&b at 1/2 the price.

Overall, would recommend, but this area could be improved.

We stayed there (in the Parisian Dreams Suite) for four nights and were very happy with the room, the service and the food. The bed is huge and the bath is amazing, it´s like going for a swim in a hot spring. However, the most remarkable thing about it is the service. Roger, the owner, is always around and very helpful and makes you feel very much at home. So do his staff. We had a lovely time.

We decided to have a weekend away for ourselves. We chose the Parisian Dreams room because we like relaxing together in a bath and this room has a huge bath.

Although the location wasn't the easiest to find (the building doesn't look much from the outside), the interior was surprisingly luxurious and very nicely appointed.

The staff were very pleasant on arrival, the hotel felt relaxed and was spotlessly clean.

The room was beautifully decorated; with a large comfortable bed, a superb bath with candles, large screen tv and comfortable seating area.

We decided to eat in and had an excellent Green Thai chicken meal.

We had a decadent time drinking wine in the candlelit bathroom watching a movie. There was plenty of hot water which came out a good speed. The showers were also very good.

There was also a delicious breakfast, with copious amounts of orange juice, tea, coffee and toast, and a very good cooked English breakfast.

We had a really great, relaxing self indulgent time away, and look forward to repeating this again soon. We would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to our friends for a hedonistic time !
