“A bit of festive cheer on a foggy cold evening.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012 via mobile

We took my mother here for a meal: bless her, everyone else was really pleased with their meal but mum. Lots had been left off her meal and she was very disappointed. To be fair to the staff, they swiftly deducted it from the bill and gave mum a free coffee as an apology which definatly made her feel better!
The real ale was mostly good except one pint of very cloudy London pride... I was told it was because it was a new barrel, hm, if they say so; though in my experience its usually the end of it that makes a ropey pint! I didn't stay but have been shown the rooms, they are very reasonably priced and nicely finished. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as an alternative to a central farnham stay.

Enjoyed several nights stay while in Farnham on business. The rooms were very large and the breakfast was included in the price. Free WiFi, good food, and you get to say you stayed in a pub! The pub was nice with local ales, good food, and friendly staff. They even invited us to a quiz night but we were too tired from the flight to stay up for it! This is a nice intimate area of the English countryside. We were on business so didn't do too much other than check out the miniature town in the middle of a roundabout!

Room Tip: Stayed on second floor. By the window it was a bit chilly but the radiator had plenty of heat!

Our second overnight stay at the Princess Royal and we were very satisfied. Rooms are in a separate block, a few yards from the pub. Parking is conveniently available right outside the door. Room was good with a very comfortable bed. Traffic noise not a problem - nothing more than a background hum. We had dinner in the restaurant and the quality and portions were impressive. Very good value too. Breakfast was excellent as well. Staff were friendly and helpful. Will happily stay there again when next in the area.

The rooms are very modern and comfortable with all required amenities. Could be more tea and coffee sachets, No doubt I could have had more if I'd asked. Staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful in a comfortable dining room.

My only issue is a very busy road at the back, though thats common with so many hotels. Did not disturb my sleep even with the window open.

I managed to book the Princes Royal the same day i needed to stay at a good rate for the area of £82.00 including breakfast.

The hotel is not attached to the pub but very close behind it with key card access, the room was big and had all the amenities you needed, the only issue I found is that it was a little cold and the hearter took a while to warm up.

The pub was great serving good food and beer.

I could not fault the service as all the staff were very polite and proffesional.

My only issue is trying to say again I found the prices much more expensive to book in advance which is a shame

It's the second time that my colleague and I have stayed here and it was even nicer than we remembered. It was first recommended by someone who works for us and who's a local guy.
Looking at a lot of the pictures of this place on tripadvisor, it looks very classy or even too classy. In reality, this is a very nice no-nonsense place, with a friendly staff, nice rooms and good food. You can have dinner a-la-carte or ordering it at the bar and pick your own table. We absolutely prefer the latter.
Next time we have to be here, we absolutely go back here!!

This was the second time we have used here for a function and once again the food provided in a buffet was good quality and the room size we were in was perfect for our numbers (around 60). Having a good size car park means that your guests have no problem with parking too. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the general fell of the place is really nice. I would definately recommend this venue for function hire.
