Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AlB56 Unexpectedly Good Find
We have never had a bad stay in a Holiday Inn but to be frank, our expectations of staying in a hotel in a relatively non-descript urban area were mediocre. How wrong we were.
The hotel has been extended from the original building and although located close to a busy road intersection you'd never know it once inside. The welcome on checking in was first rate - swift and efficient - Thank You Neil. Similarly check out was excellent despite being very busy as the hotel had hosted a wedding and a 60th birthday celebration the previous day - Thank you Julie ... (I think, my apologies if not).
We enjoyed breakfast on two mornings of our three night stay and again, excellent staff service made what could have easily been a very chaotic affair with masses of families with varying requirements arriving all at once. Great range of food available. We had a very early start on the first morning but complimentary coffee was provided to get us underway.
Overall we would not hesitate to come back, even when we visit central London and therefore have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A home away from home
The hotel at Farnborough was very comfortable and had all the amenities required. I would recommend this hotel to be the best in and around aldershot and the people at the hotel ensured that they provide the best customer service with a smile...
The only thing that I would recommend is that the hotel should have a scale which would help the people to weigh their luggage so that they can do all necessary arrangements before travel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smurf1963 Overall, not very impressed
I was on business so accomodation was booked by my employee.
Room was small, there was no tea or coffee in room. Breakfast was 7.30 onward (but I had to leave before this) & the room over looked a forecourt which was nosey until after 1.30am
Service in the bar was slow & the hotel never seem to answer their direct line.
Would not chose to return however will be back on business.
Also, I believe my car may have been hit in the car park due to tight parking spaces

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Arniedogsmum Comfortable Room, nice staff but Really Bad Food!
I have just spent just over 2 months at this hotel, continuously complaining about the quality of the food served.
After speaking with numerous Mangers i had lots of promises that things would be looked into?
As long as you like chips, chips and anything fried you will be fine at this hotel!
It is such a shame as the listed building is really lovely and even thought you can be based right next to the main road outside there is still no noise!
If they ever manage to sort out the food issue's at this hotel it would be a perfect venue to stay at.

Really enjoy staying here, we stay at many Holiday Inns and rate this as one of our best choices. sad to say I was a little amazed to find the debris from a previous evening meal under an adjoining table at breakfast. not what I would expect from a hotel of this standard. Pleased to say my comment to a staff member was well received and promptly dealy with.
We shall visit again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by martin1976 excellent service and food
Our stay was only for one night but the service was excellent, all staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was of very high quality. The steak was asked to be cooked medium and it was and of excellent flavour and tenderness. The children had a great time with an arrival pack of crayons and colouring. The same at dinner. The breakfast was also of very high standard and plenty of choice. I would highly recommend this hotel and would use it again if in the neighbourhood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aggie67 Great room and service
The room was very comfortable, the facilities were great. The only concern we had being the insufficient number of tea bags provided although we had no problem getting more from reception. A pity the room was non smoking, are there any smoking rooms?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJS27 an excellent choice
Have stayed at this hotel on previous occasions + have allways been impressed. This time booked the dinner b+b rate. Have stayed in standard rooms, 4 poster rooms, + mini suites. All have been extremely well equiped + very comfortable. Personal favourite is the mine suite, which is amazingly spacious. The inclusive dinner rate is an excellent deal, + the menu itself is large + varied. Hotel has a very comfortable lounge/bar area with plenty of room. The staff provide excellent + friendly service of a high standard, + i wont hesitate to return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by April13 Wedding
We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Farnborough when we attended a wedding recently. The bride and groom had their civil ceremony followed by their reception at the hotel. From the moment we checked in until we checked out we could not have received better service, all the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The bedroom was very comfortable and clean. We found there were not many options for people with dietary requirements at breakfast. However we would have no hesitation of recommending the hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by independance Another great stay
Visiting for the first time whilst visiting relatives in the area. Use Holiday Inn frequently and are never disappointed. This was no exception, great facilities and staff, rooms could do with an update but this did not detract from our visit. Would be happy to reccomend this Hotel.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times now and it never fails to impress me how courteous, helpful and engaging all the staff are. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Always enjoy my stay at this hotel and thoroughly recommend it whether business or leisure. Excellent!

I stayed at the Farnsborough Holiday Inn while on a business trip to England. Even though I got there early, they allowed me to check in which was very nice as I had been up all night on the flight over. The front desk staff was friendly and engaging and the dining staff was responsive to my needs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CALSUFF Not the Best - Not the Worst - but Overpriced
Nice check in for Gold and Platinum Priority Club members but 'lesser' Priority Club members such as myself directed to general check in. I assume that the free newspaper once offered to all P C Members has now been withdrawn as this was not delivered either.
My room number was not shown on the direction arrows so I asked a member of staff for directions. She was also uncertain but helped establish the route I needed to follow. Long walk to room through a maze of corridors and which included a section requiring exposure to the elements. With bags, laptop and suit holder in tow, not ideal.
The room was clean and tidy but a rather odd shape and a little small, The very pleasant person delivering room service actually had difficulty getting the tray into the room without spillage - one lost lid apart - due to the narrowness of the entrance.
I considered the room rate and cost of food did not represent good value for money and I could certainly have stayed in a more roomy and bright hotel elsewhere at a better rate.
Nothing majorly wrong with this hotel but, then again, nothing to write home about either.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EJ72 Really great service.
All the staff I had contact with went out of their way to ensure my stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very thorough (as well as very pleasant) in providing all the information I required. The courteous and polite attitude of the staff was welcome and did not seem fake or disingenuous. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel albeit business or leisure.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by vcatew Disappointing for a number of small reasons
A reasonable hotel that was let down by a litany of small issues, including lack of staff at front desk, tremendously slow service in the bar (despite it being practically empty) and lack of care and attention to detail on a number of fronts such as the cleaning of the tea/coffee facilities in the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ceri Comfortable bed and excellent service
Whilst I was given an easy aceess room (for a disabled person) I was disappointed that there were no rooms with a 'walk-in' shower. I do not use or need a wheelchair but with 3 replacement joints, getting in and out of the shower over the lowered edge of the bath was manageble but only just.
The major aggravation, in what was otherwise a very comfortable bedroom, was the inablility to read in bed late at night by the light of the eco bedside lights - impossible.
I thought the difference in prices incl or not of breakfast made the breakfast an expensive option.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ARG234 Convenient location
We have stayed at Holiday Inn Farnborough on a number of occasions over the years when attending reunions in the area. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms comfortable. Having said that, on this occasion our room was oppressively hot and it was not possible to alter the heat setting. We resorted to opening the window and switching off the heating altogether. Fortunately our room was in a quiet area so noise from the open window was not an issue, but what a waste of heat there must be! There was also no hairdrier supplied in the room, although possibly I could have asked for one had I not been short of time.

we were greeted as platinum members. The room had recently been refurbished and bed comfortable. There were 3 events on the evening we stayed and although service was a little slow we had an enjoyable dinner. The leisure club has the warmest jacuzzi for onc. We have stayed here before and would come again foe a short break.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mrsdisappointed Disappointed...
We regularly stay at Holiday Inns and have always been very impressed. On this occasion I booked a table for 4 for dinner well in advance and received confirmation (I still have the email), when we arrived there was no record of this. A table was then re-booked, but when we arrived at the restaurant it was only a table for 2. We were also brought an incorrect starter which we accepted as the others were on the table. On arrival we requested breakfast for the following morning, there was no record of this at breakfast. We had a drink in the bar, a small red wine and a gin and tonic was £14.50! During our stay there was an 18th Birthday party and a rather rowdy wedding, it would be courteous to inform us of these bookings (which I am sure were in place when I booked a month previously) as we had arranged to meet friends (hence the restaurant booking) but were unable to hear ourselves think in the lounge during the course of the evening. All in all a rather disappointing experience.
