We had a lovely stay at the Mercure Farnham Bush Hotel. Staff was nice and the check-in and out was quick. The rooms looked like they have been updated recently. The only slightly negative thing was that the hallway needed a good clean. The hotel is in the center of Farnham which was great for going to restaurants. More...

The room was clean and nicely presented with comfy beds. There was a problem with the booking as the receptionist couldn't locate it despite booking directly with the company. They had some rooms available so it wasn't a problem on this occasion but I dread to think what would have happened if they were fully booked More...

Lovely place, last stayed a few years ago and nice to see now been refurbished to a very nice standard. Staff were very helpful and friendly and as we stayed for an evening meal I can confirm that the food is lovely. Last visit around Farnham showed it to be a lovely place with plenty of eateries and bars. More...

I recently stayed there as I needed a hotel close to my work in Farnborough, and I find Farnborough to be very dull, I decided to try Farnham. It’s a much more interesting town and the Mercure Bush Hotel is slap bang in the middle.||The car park was nearly full but I soon checked in and I found that the staff were really friendly and helpful. ||The reception upgraded my room for free, which was much appreciated. The hotel has a very old part and what looks like a 1970’s extension to it. My room was there but I was happy with it and the bed was very comfortable.||I also eat dinner there and took advantage of pre-booking it for £16, which was a master stroke in hindsight as it would have cost me much more paying on the night. I would critique the steak though, it was tough, grisly and not cooked how I’d asked it to be.||Overall, really good and I would stay there again without question. More...

My wife and myself stayed for one night. We were on the second floor in the newer part of the building. Listed as a Superior twin room it was just that. Beautifully decorated and really comfy beds. Couldn’t fault our experience. Pleasant staff. More...

My partner and I stayed here last night and really liked it. The hotel is lovely and clean, also nice and modern. Our room was really nice and big enough, it looks like it has recently been revamped. The bed is really comfy, we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was very good too, being served until 10am was nice on a rare day off. There was a good selection of hot and cold food, a nice coffee machine, cold juices and not forgetting the delicious pastries! Staff all seemed friendly and helpful. The local area is nice to walk through and some nice pubs/ restaurants to visit. Only reason for not getting 5 stars is the shower pressure was very poor, not a huge issue for 1 night only. There were people walking past my room at 1 am talking loudly and loud banging at 6am but the hotel can't help who their guests are. All in all a good stay and will return. More...

Spent one night at this hotel before a wedding at Farnham Castle. A very nice old hotel in the centre of town, easy walking distance from the railway station. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. My room was in a wing and looked as if it had been recently modernised. The decor was nice and I had a double bed, safe, fridge, tv, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. The bathroom was modern with a large shower. I found the room over hot due to radiators in the hallways but was able to open a window. There are a lot of long hallways which unfortunately became a running track 'til quite late at night for children attending a party downstairs. Breakfast was very substantial, well cooked with dishes kept topped up. This hotel is good value and I would happily stay here again. More...

Stayed here for a murder57 night. Group of 12. Our room was upstairs, hallway had been recently decorated so smelt of paint, not an issue for us. Room was spacious, nice large shower. Clean and comfortable. Food served for the murder mystery was ok, not amazing but hasn’t expected much more. The murder mystery was fantastic, great fun and very entertaining!

It adds to the atmosphere to have so many staff and visitors from overseas.||Anyone visiting the area will find a haven of peace after being able to enjoy the historic treasures of this area.||You can enjoy a new menu throughout the day, and appreciate log fires in the autumn and winter months, after the peaceful garden has been enjoyed during the summer.

Stayed here for one night as attending a nearby wedding and we booked two rooms at the special “wedding rate”. After reading some of the reviews, quite frankly we were more than a little worried about what we would find. ||||The manager and check in lady were both very friendly, welcoming and efficient and we were able to check into one room early, and told where the 2nd room would be. In the reception area are water, fruit and comfortable seating. ||||The upgrade to the hotel is very pleasant, our rooms on the 1st and 2nd floors were nicely decorated and quiet. Our shower was great our son had issues with the water pressure in his. Nice views to the gardens, tea, coffee, mini fridge, safe and flat screen tv and plenty of power points throughout with usb points.||||Breakfast was lovely too with a good range of hot and cold food, fresh coffee, juices, pastries yoghurts etc, you only had to ask and they were happy to replenish any items. Don’t see why people would complain to be honest. Good service and tables cleaned as soon as guests left.||The hotel is right in the centre of the town and we enjoyed free parking. Again it’s a bonus to get free on site parking and there’s lots of paid available nearby.||||Once some of the niggles are sorted, this would be a 5* rating from us. I think the manager really wants to improve this hotel and he was happy to listen to constructive feedback. I would definitely stay here again. More...

Good value for money hotel in central Farnham location that is a 10 minute easy walk from the train station.

On the flip side the wardrobe only had 4 hangers and instead of two firm and two soft pillows we had four very firm ones that were uncomfortable to sleep with.||What sets this hotel appart are the staff who are a major asset for the hotel. Everyone we spoke with were unfailing helpful and efficient. Thankyou. More...

I have been using the Bush Hotel in Farnham once a year most years for around 25 years. In general the hotel has been excellent in terms of service and quality and for the most part this year was no exception. ||The exception this year was that a refurbishment was in progress during my stay and the room I was initially allocated was adjacent to the refurbishment work area. The first key card I was given when I booked in didn't work and after reporting this to reception I was given a replacement key card - which also failed to work! At this point the hotel staff decided that it must be a problem with the door/room entry system and said they would re-allocate me to a different room. While they were doing this, they offered me a complimentary drink in the hotel bar for my inconvenience. The alternate room proved to be fine. Although the problem was rather disappointing the staff were pretty reasonable in dealing with it and it didn't significantly effect either my enjoyment of this trip or more likeliness to use the Bush Hotel again in the future.

So exciting times ahead and we will definitely return to see the refurbishments as the staff and food were equally lovely.||The staff were always on hand and willing to be of assistance ( patiently answering some of my more inane questions and assisting my elderly mother with her things) and happy to chat if that is what you wanted. The breakfasts were plentiful (though more choice of fruit please) and served in the spacious dining room. The evening meal satisfied our party of 5 who each had a different dish and although there was a large party in another part of the hotel we were not at all forgotten and served by a delightful young man.||Overall we found it to be a perfect base to stay whilst attending a wedding in Frensham and would gladly return to see the new improved version.

Having read poor reviews I was apprehensive as I’d booked this for 2 other couples. I was really pleased that it exceeded our expectations. Reception and lounge area were really nice, bar perfect and all of the staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. The carpets in communal areas, blinds and decor looked good. The room was fine- large, clean, very warm and had a new comfortable bed. The Murder Mystery event was fun and well organised. Both dinner & breakfast good. For the price paid it was great value for money. One of our rooms was a bit ‘tired’ but they are working through the hotel. It was clean and it really didn’t matter to us. It is a lovely old building and in a great location. We loved Farnham- the shops are great for browsing and we walked up to the castle. We shall definitely return - we thought it would be a great town for Christmas shopping so will tie in with an overnight stay. It’s not a 5 star hotel but it has character, great staff and represents excellent value for money. If you have 5 star expectations you need to pay 5 star prices. More...

The lady who served us at breakfast well your a credit to your team she had picked out the fruits that my son liked out of the fruit salad and served it to him thank you and thank you chef !! Chris massive help with some tech of ourselves !! Thank you . ||||Overall fantastic stay !!! Weve been 3 times before but by far this was our best !!

We have stayed here several times and love it's great location,garden and atmosphere. It is a beautiful building in need of some TLC but the staff are very helpful, professional and the new management are focused on providing better service care and to update the hotel. The rooms are ok some better than others and the price reflects this. The breakfast is good but mostly DIY. We like this hotel and were impressed by the service we received on our last visit. It meets our needs and look forward to returning soon to see the new improvements and refurbishments. More...

The Mercure Bush Hotel is located close to centre of Farnham town. Offering a number of services from weddings to parties, the Bush Hotel is a beautiful venue with an old style feel to it, with its picturesque fountain outside and glorious interior design.

I really like this hotel. It's a little dated but it's a lovely quaint place with friendly staff, a good breakfast and a nice outdoor seating area in the summer. The setting is perfect with a good selection of shops on the doorstep and a Sainsbury's opposite. Parking can be a challenge if you arrive late on a busy evening and the car park entrance is tight to say the least. They've got a deal with a local leisure centre as there's no pool or gym at the hotel. You're not going to find the crisp accuracy of a modern, purpose built hotel here but there's character, comfortable beds and good baths/ showers in the rooms. More...
