From April 13th-15th we booked a stay in Farnham Estate as a romantic and luxurious getaway. When we arrived we were very impressed by the extensive grounds and the remarkable period house which had been beautifully resorted and tastefully redorated with modern extensions in a beautiful woodland setting. We had booked a suite, which upon arrival we were very impressed with, it was an amazingly magnificient room. We changed into our robes and headed to the fabulous spa and enjoyed the outdoor heated pool with beatuful views of the rolling countyside and the sauna and steam room. However this was where our enchantment ended. After the sap we headed for lunch in the Botanic Bar, a number of staff members were faffing about not sure what to do. The table we were sitting at was dirty .After 10 minutes nobody came to take our order, i had to search out a menu myself and then stand at the bar for another 10 minutes before anyone took our order, our table was never cleaned and the wrong drinks order arrived which we were subseqently charged extra for. The level of bad service from inexperienced staff worsened over the duration of out stay. That night we could not sleep due to a noisy generator loacted beside our suite. The following day we requested to be moved. We were located to a smaller suite but were still required to pay the same rate. We were told our luggage would be moved at 12.00 but when we returned to the room at 2.00pm it had not been done and we moved ourselves after waiting for 20 minutes in the lobby for someone to give us a key. Our dinner which was included in the rate on the Friday night was way below par for a 4star hotel to be offering. The following night we ventured to the Olde Post Inn in Cloverhill a truly sumptious feast and well worth the visit. After a gruelling check out on the Sunday we vowed we would never return to this "Faluty Towers" fiasco.
