We booked The Bishops Table for our wedding reception last year, taking the leap of faith that the hotel would be refurbished in time....we were not disappointed! Leading up to our big day the hotel manager could not have been more tentative and accommodating, providing a bespoke wedding package to suit our requirements and budget. We stayed for 2 nights...

I have to say that, if this was the only hotel in Farnham, I would rather choose to sleep in my car after my experience today. The bored receptionist ( with not a guest to be seen ) refused outright to extend me the courtesy of calling a taxi. Not a big deal perhaps, but you can rest assured I...

Nicely refurbished hotel. What a change, almost a different place altogether. Clean, modern and really friendly staff. The floors are still uneven but that only adds to the character of the place. Rooms were nicely appointed, warm and comfortable with all the requirements one would need. Once the decorating is completed and the staff get a little more experienced and...

I stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip. The hotel is lovely and everywhere had clearly just been refurbished. All the members of staff were a pleasure and nothing was too much for them. A continental breakfast is served either downstairs or to your room in a cute basket! This was a lovely touch! There isn't anywhere in...

I made a reservation for a room and arrived to check in. I located the temporary reception eventually and checked in. I was met by friendly staff at the temporary desk. I was shown to a refurbished room across the courtyard and it was nicely finished. I was just disappointed that there was no lounge bar or any food facilities...

We stayed for one night (Feb 2017). The hotel is positioned perfectly for exploring the town centre of Farnham it's shops, cafés and restaurants. It is a short walk to Farnham Malting which was our main reason for visiting.We had two rooms in the newly built block behind the main hotel an added bonus was that there was no noise...

I spent two nights here on a business trip in a courtyard room. It was comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean, with a new modern bathroom - I loved the double size shower. An ample continental breakfast was delivered to the room. There's no restaurant, but the cheerful receptionist recommended a local Italian bistro, which was great. I'd definitely stay here...

The Bishops Table is currently enjoying a major refurbishment and I stayed in one of the new rooms overlooking the courtyard at the back of the hotel. It was very well appointed, comfortable and quiet with a superb en suite bathroom and one of the best showers I have used for a very long time. Only minor criticism would be...

I work at the front desk at the Inn at Saratoga In Saratoga Springs, upstate NY and I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful owners of The Bishops Table in Farmham, England.

Very nice room and shower. I stayed in one of the new boutique ensuites in the courtyard. The quality of the decoration was fantastic, dab radio, rain shower, nice tea and biscuits. Nice continental breakfast...although a cooked option would have been better.

“Rooms to the rear of the main hotel or the annex will be quieter.”

“I would imagine that the rooms at the rear would be quieter as the main road can get busy”

“The rooms behind the main hotel are away from the road and therefore quieter. Some of the rooms were a little dark.”
