“One night stop”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

we arrived late in the evening and was greeted by a very friendly receptionist and shown to our room. The room was fine, enough room for the 4 of us and we had a great night sleep. Breakfast was great and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend staying at this hotel.

Stairs and long walk to our room with our 2 small children and all of our cases with no offer of help.
Breakfast was not good, coffee machine didn't work.
Awoken by people at 2am running along corridors laughing and screaming.
Won't be staying here again

Clean and comfortable Premier Inn. Stayed here after visiting a family member. No problems here at all. Staff friendly and efficient. We basically arrived at the hotel late and went to bed. Up early next morning for Thorpe Park. We used the wifi half an our was all we needed. It's great that it's free. Would consider this Premier in again if coming back to the area.

As usual the room was of a good standard clean with a comfortable bed, as expected. The only complaint we had was the very long walk to the room with no lift or help with our baggage. As we are disabled it took us ages to get to and from our room, and after a long and exerting day in the car, this was not what we expected. I would not therefore use this Hotel again
The Brewers Fayre next door was excellent good menu and very good wine choice and very good service from the staff.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with walking have a room on the ground floor near the entrance.

Nice and clean, helpful reception staff and room attended to every day with fresh towels and coffee etc. We didn't have the breakfast at The Monkey Puzzle but did have a few evening meals: the bar staff are very friendly but the food is ordinary and we only continued to go because the children loved the play area and garden which meant we enjoyed a bottle of wine in peace! Internet access is £10 per week for two devices - it dropped out a few times but 90% was very good. £590 for an eight day stay I considered exceptional value.

Premier Inn is pretty predictable as it should be for a chain formula hotel and the Farnborough is a pretty good advert for the brand - totally predictable with high cleaning standards, polite and pleasant staff and a decent breakfast plus a good nights sleep.

This particular example on the outskirts of Farnborough is handy for Legoland (20 to 40 minutes depending on the day and time) and is a 90's style faux clapperboard New England example purpose built with the usual Brewers Fayre adjacent to it.

Note that your sat nav will take you to the wrong roundabout down the road so look out for the hotel through the trees. Not all of the rooms seem to have aircon ( we had a fan) so check on this in hot weather and some of the common areas could do with a bit of TLC and a lick of paint. Other than that I can find little to fault which is as it should be.

Booking was easy, quick and efficient. The hotel itself is convenient for the M3, being only a couple of miles from Junction 4a, and has plenty of parking space. From the outside it is has a modern look and feel to it, with the Brewers Fayre next door.

The Reception was quick and easy with most internal facilities explained, including their ‘good night’s sleep guarantee’. The internal ambiance of the entrance matches the outsides modern approach and looks.

The Room, on the 2nd was furthest from the reception end faced out over the car park and a high hedge. The room itself was a good size, very clean, warm and had a decent shower – though the use of this did steam up the window. I was not overly disturbed by the noise from the car park and restaurant – however this may become a concern on warmer days/nights as there is no air conditioning only heating in the room.

Wi-Fi is free for the first half hour – after that there is a charge of £3 per day. Why they cannot be free and included in the overall price, as with most chains these days, I still cannot comprehend. It also has to be said that during this stay it had a tendency for the connection to drop out every few minutes.

Breakfast starts at 6:30 am, ideal for those on business needing to get sorted and out early. It is in the Brewers Fayre next door and is an ‘all you can eat buffet style’. The food is good and there is a good variety of help yourself choices with eggs and porridge to order. As with most such hotel chains no one was able to answer the questions on local sourced though.

Recommendation – yes I would use it again as it met my business needs. Again, this is one of those places that “does what it says on the tin”. However I would be very unlikely to use it if my visit had been for private/personal reasons.
