Stayed here for a night on business.Price, not bad for the area (which is not a cheap one). Room located in the annex at the back possibly a former extended stable / coach house. Tidy, clean and comfortable, decent clean bed linen. A bit of mustiness and wear about the place, ambitious refurbishment plans are in the pipeline. Nice garden....

Lovely reception area. Excellent staff on reception Room was shabby, dated, 'un even' (slope). was a one night, room only bed for the night stay. Wouldn't use this hotel for any more than that Only paid £70 and was a last minute weekend bookend whilst visiting friends

For £80 a night I would expect something much better than the room at the bishops table. It was like staying at your gran's house if your gran had really bad decorative taste, wasn't a big fan of cleaning her bathroom and employed really bad plumbers to fit her bathroom. The main inconvenience however was the parking situation. Only real...

This is a really comfy place, with very spacious rooms. Very quiet and good for getting a good night's rest. The lovely big tub was a big bonus. Plus it is dirt cheap (though I didn't pay for it) especially when compared to London hotels.

We use this hotel for meetings to get away from the overcrowded noisy "chain" coffee shops in Farnham. The experience is always pleasurable with great coffee, light, airy and quiet restaurant and bar areas, solid wi-fi coverage and connection, and decent coffee at a very reasonable price. We will continue to use the Bishops Hotel.

I stayed in November for one night as I was in Farnham on business. The rooms I saw (two) were both in an annex at the back of the hotel. The first one was freezing as the radiator wasn't working, it was quite clear the radiator was broken when I was shown to my room but I was told once...

Eight years ago we came here with a one year plan and we are just getting there! This part of the building was out of keeping with that plan, but we have had to work hard just to keep it going. However, very soon after this review the annexe was demolished, and the Coach House refurbishment commenced alongside building a...

We stayed at the Bishops Table for one night whilst visiting friends in the local area. It is located in a very handy location for were we needed to be. To be honest, we didn't spend much time in the hotel however, the nights sleep was uncomfortable due to not being able to turn the radiators down, it was very...

I have been stopping at the Bishops table for the past 3 years. The hotel is in a nice central location right in the heart of Farnham, just a short walk all of the Cafés and Bistros that line the streets of Farnham. It's difficult to explain the hotel as it has a certain character about it. Each room is...
