I work in a local business and when I need to stay away I always stay at the Bishops Table. I also frequently send my cover staff to stay here as it is very central.The hotel is comfortable, clean, very accommodating and is run by very friendly/professional staff. I would recommend this hotel for any type of stay.

Staff are extremely nice and accommodating at Bishops. They have a cook in the morning and the breakfast is really good. They are in the middle of building a new structure and remodeling. Hot water here gets really hot, very quickly. Rooms are big; the heater runs all night. They have a nice bar with couches. 3open areas for meals/studying....

The hotel is centrally located, which is excellent for evening meals and access to the shops. Rooms are a little dated but very large. Good breakfast, especially like the porridge. It is undergoing renovation and if done well this could be a great place.

The Bishops Table is a small hotel in a narrow old building, poor bed, poor shower, not especial good service etc. I will be travelling to Farnham on business some times a year in the future and will definately check out another hotel next time.

Friendly, convenient but scabby and dated inside some of which is because it's a older building some because it needs sorting out properly to justify quite a high price for what it is. Needs a good clean up and redecoration to justify the price. They are relying on the location as it is dead centre and paid parking is close...

The Bishops Table is a small hotel located on the main street in Farnham. A beautiful old building with much charm that has been modernised in part to make a very enjoyable place to stay. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Good value for money.

Chap on reception even helped with our bags and showed us to our room - that doesn't happen very often nowadays. Downstairs decor fine but upstairs and rooms very tired.

The Bishops Table is conveniently located in the heart of Farnham and a few minutes walk from anywhere. The first thing that struck me was the courteous but friendly manner by which we were greeted. It was my first trip to Farnham and no enquiry was too much trouble and no question remained unanswered. The room was more than ample...
