“Unfriendly maitre d but really nice stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

Stayed here with my boyfriend last week and had a really great time! The spa was great and really relaxing and the pool and entire pool area was lovely.
We had never stayed here before so arrived downstairs at around 7pm for dinner and had a look at the different menus on offer. We stayed on a Monday night and the hotel was quite quiet yet when we decided to try the Botanica Restaurant we were greeted by a very unfriendly and patronising maitre d. We were the second couple in the restaurant, which had tonnes of free tables! yet the minute we told him we hadn't made a booking and were just seeing if they could fit us in he was extremely patronising to us. We are in our 20's but might as well have been bold little children the way he spoke to us. We laughed it off at the time and didn't let it ruin our evening but thinking back it was very unnecessary. We would have been happy even with an 'ok you've no reservation but Iv a table free until a certain time' response. Other than that great place and lovely stay!

Whilst this is a stunning hotel with fantastic staff and a lovely mix of old and new I do not think this hotel is worth the price we paid for it. The car park is a ten minute walk from the hotel with a shuttle bus which means you cant just nip out to the car for something you may need. The function room was only accesible from outside and it was cold and wet, the evening meal was very good but the breakfast in the morning was very unimpressive - all in all it was a disappointment on what I was expecting.

This was my fourth visit to Farnham Estate, it is an excellent hotel, all staff were fantastic and food exceptional (salmon and lamb super), first class chef. This time I brought my Mum and we had agreat time.

We arrived on Saturday afternoon, the spa was busy but plenty of room and the outdoor heated pool is the best in Ireland, a real treat. My friend and her Mum joined us that evening and we had a first class dinner in the Botanica Restaurant. We retired to the magnificant drawing room where we had our coffee and chilled out, Downton Abbey eat your heart out:)

The room was spotless and all staff were so helpful and friendly from the consierge to the check in staff, waiters, waitresses and cleaners, nothing was a problem, very efficient and friendly.

I can't comment on the golf as I don't play but the trails are great to clear the mind (hiking boots and wellies needed if wet)

It is the perfect place for quite rural retreat for couples and singles or groups but not if you want a wild weekend. It was just perfect for us.

We will be back again. Sincere thanks to all the management and staff for a wonderful relaxing break.

Just back from a great weekend in Farnham Estate Hotel. The best Spa in Ireland by far but, try and get there early in the day to appreciate all the facilities as it does get busy with 'day trippers'.
The Hotel is spendid but, there was something missing and that was atmosphere. The cellar bar needs to change its background Music and it is not the most welcoming- Too many alcoves and tiny tables which are too low and impractical to eat from. The Dinner was superb but a glass of Moet is €17 !!!! and a ordinary bottle of House wine is €25. This is where they make their money. Overall a great venue not cheap but, worth every penny
Go if you want to rest and be pampered

Room Tip: Ask for Room 356 great views and very quiet
