Realy enjoyable experience. There is a lot to do . You could stay for 3 nights and have a lot to do from walks to the spa to cycles to visiting the near by wildlife park. The food in the Botica restaurant wasn't as good as i expected it to be, I wouldn't recommend going there as it is quite expensive. Our starter took 45 mins to come but the waiters gave us a bottle of wine and extras on the house so we felt well looked after. The staff are all lovely are so great at taking care of you. Well worth staying here.

Without question the best location if you want to get away from it all. The hotel advertises itself as the perfect place to relax, unwind and rejuvenate and that is exactly what it delivers. The staff, facilities and experience are second to none!

Any place has a mix of good and bad points, this is no different!

Good
Staff very friendly and helpful
Nice setting with plenty of nice walks on the grounds
Pool is good
Breakfast very good

Bad
Found the sauna area lacked a real jacuzzi and plunge pool-some of the facilities didn't seem working
Bar promised music but despite an about trying to set up this never happened-the technology didn't work-the central bar area really lacks atmosphere and is far too open/bright (downstairs better but too dark during the day)

I missed call just after booking from them: I returned a few days later (weeks before our week-end there): they were checking dinner times. At this stage they only had too early or too late! A bit disappointing weeks in advance. (In the end we got an OK time on the day).

The dinner food was good but not great. I would say some of the cheese platter was excellent! Wait staff seemed a little raw and unpolished (front staff on desks seemed better training).

Rooms fairly standard spec-clean and modern. It is a good 90 minute trip from Dublin (with 2 toll roads) if coming that way.

Overall, not a bad choice if your expectations are at the right level.

Room Tip: Aak for a room away from any wedding if not part of the wedding group

We recently stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It truly is a"child free zone", while children are welcome they are not allowed in the spa and that includes the swimming pool , so its not a place for a family get away. The grounds are lovely and there are plenty of walking paths along with a golf course. The spa is heaven but be sure to book treatments ahead of your arrival as the book up very quickly. The food is lovely and staff are very helpful.

Delighted that you thoroughly enjoyed your stress free experience here at Farnham Estate.

While we do welcome children here at Farnham Estate, our Health Spa is an adult only facility, which tends to enhance the relaxation process!

Thank you for your lovely comments and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

We arrived, parked up and called for the shuttle...Waited and waited to the point we were going to go and pack the car up again and drive up ourselves as the shuttle took so long? Eventually we checked in by lovely front desk staff - sorry think of her name but she was so warm and welcoming. We stayed in a nice Junior suite over looking the lovely grounds. The rooms are nice a little small and with an odd sitting area off to the side of the room. The hotel is really all about the Spa area, which is really well kept with a great indoor / outdoor heated pool! This was fab to swim under the stars while it was freezing out of the water, it was such a cosy feeling! The main restaurant was just ok as we felt the waiting staff were a little inexperienced/ weekend staff, which left us waiting at times for someone to order or take away our plates. They were busy and it showed they prefer the bigger groups rather then couples? It may have been just the wrong night but it did put us off. Afterwards you can go for drinks in the cellar but unless you are down early its hard to get a seat/ table. Otherwise you can sit in the lobby bar area but there is no atmosphere.Anyway l hope you have a better stay then we did as its the small things that make a hotel stay memorable and this stay fell flat.

Just back from an excellent one night stay in Farnham. I booked the hotel on the recommendation of many of my friends and I was not disappointed. We were checked in by a girl who according to her badge was "in training". The staff training is obviously of a very high standard as she was so polite and helpful. She gave great detail about every aspect of the hotel which ensured we felt comfortable straight away. We stayed in a beautiful room with amazing view. We used the SPA on two occasions. The thermal suite and swimming pool is very nice and relaxing. The only fault I had was that most of the loungers around the spa appeared full as people had left their towels there, in this way I think the spa could benefit from more regular general tidying. Also I think that the lack of products in showers/changing rooms just meant that the spa lacked that extreme luxury. Treatments in the spa however were definitely luxurious. We had dinner that night in the restaurant which was superb with excellent service! we also had lunch in the goose cellar bar while watching the football and breakfast which were both excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will hopefully be back soon!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have lovely view over forest/ gardens.
