You'll feel revitalised at Best Western Frensham Pond Hotel.

Situated in a naturally beautiful lakeside location and close to fascinating historic attractions, this is Farnham's only 4-star hotel and a wonderful place to hold a celebration.

In a delightful location overlooking Frensham Great Pond in Surrey and a short drive away from the South Downs National Park, the Best Western Frensham Pond Hotel is the perfect spot to recharge your batteries. This charming country house was once the residence of the Bishop of Winchester and retains much of its original homeliness. But it's also been given a contemporary makeover, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds - traditional atmosphere and thoughtful hospitality combined with every modern facility. For these reasons, this most attractive of Farnham hotels has become a popular venue to host weddings and other celebrations.

If your stay is for business purposes, Best Western Frensham Pond Hotel is conveniently close major transport links to London, the towns of Aldershot, Guildford and Farnborough, as well as a number of local business parks.

However, it's the range of relaxing leisure options that particularly make this hotel an excellent choice. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it's a wonderful place for lovers of nature. Go walking and cycling in the beautiful Frensham Common, birdwatching at Birdworld or fishing at the local trout farm. You could also pay a visit to the nearby Farnham Castle and take in history that dates back to the Normans. Whatever you choose to do during your stay here, you're guaranteed a warm welcome on your return.

Dear Guest May we offer a huge thank you for your well thought out comprehensive review. We couldn't ask for more positive comments unless we wrote them ourselves. It is sure to convince some potential guests to stay with us. Our comedy dining events have proven to be a huge success and we are considering some other dates during the course of the year as well so please look out for this. We have taken your comments on board with regards to staffing however it has proven to be increasingly difficult to recruit at the moment due to a lack of applicants. I do hope this will be resolved soon . We are pleased to read you think the hotel is great and would love to see you again in the Summer. Best Wishes Mala Dowd Operations Manager
