Better than a tiny hotel room, good location.
Not well cleaned, even though I waited for 90minutes while it was being readied. No paper goods, paper towels, tissues, toilet paper. No soap or floor cleaning equip. Junky furniture. No one at front desk.
The feel that I was at home, it was very homely and comfortable
The fact that i didn't see any staff in the 4 days that we were there. I don't really agree with the 3-5 check in as we arrived at 9pm and didn't really have a clue what to do and again no staff to help
Kitchen facilities so not dependent on hotel or pub meals. Free wifi
Freezer was frozen solid - reported but did not ask for it to be defrosted during my stay
Good parking, clean and free wi-fi.
The size of the appartment.
When I booked, nobody told me how does it work to get in the hotel. So when I arrived, the door was closed. I could get in with the code on my paper. But after, nobody at the reception. How could I get the keys of the appartment? Fortunetly, a person came back from his shopping and he said he was living here. He asked my name. Then he went to the desk of the reception, opened a box and got an enveloppe with my name on it. My keys were there. How would I have done it without this person? I know there is a phone number on the door. But if my cellular phone was not working, what could I 've done? Not clear. Even scary/suprising when you are tired...
Location near supermarket. Parking. Wifi.
Managed to check in early having been told 'none of the rooms are ready yet, apart from yours'. Closer inspection revealed that only about 20% of the rooms were actually booked that night so there was no reason to say that. Room was filthy, bin un-emptied, glassware and cooking equipment foul yet stacked neatly in cupboards. Very hot room yet to open the windows let in the noise from the main road. A poor experience. Never again.
Proximity to shops and railway. Abilitity to please yourself - self catering so no bar or restaurant, but good kitchen facililties. They have now fitted a lift; what more could you ask!
The flexibility of being able to choose whether you cook your own meals, eat out, or ....
Getting an invoice out of them!
Great to have access to washing machine, dishwasher. Relatively new facilities but furniture surprisingly already scratched and sofa torn. Very easy access to main routes to London and the south.
The website did not reflect the facilities at the apartments completely accurately. The car parking was more expensive, the freeview did not work, the car park was not secure, the front desk was not manned 24 hours. We arrived out of hours on a sun night and did not get a warm welcome. Noisy location right by the main road.
Cheap price of room if booked in advance, proximity to train and motorway locations.
Non-24 hour reception; Not given receipt at checkout or before, despite being told I would be provided with one; Not provided with access infomation (eg after 11 O'clock you have to phone someone to gain access to the building... becuase doors keys are so expensive to cut?),
poor stafe and the entrent notallow for all
I was very pleased with my stay. I arrived out of hours and arrived to a very comfortable room. The member of staff I met when I arrived was very friendly and willing to help. Double bed, shower/ bath, fully equipped kitchen, spacious room. Everything was brand new and spotless. It was located right next to a supermarket, which was very convenient. I would definitely stay again when next in Farnborough as rates were very good.
Big clean space, very modern and ideal for cooking. Liked the seperate living room space and bedroom
Freezer was frozen over
Safe and secure location. Free parking.
Providing just one frying pan and one small pot for cooking is ridiculous, at the same time there was nothing there to do the washing up except the dishwasher! I stayed in a Studio apartment (for 4 days), each time I cooked the smell of food permeates the whole place - a supply of fixed air freshener would have been ideal. I had to go buy my own.
Spacious, clean, friendly, well equiped and importantly, at last! a half decent shower in UK (unbelievably difficult to find trust me!)
Road noise, but fairs fair, this is Farnborough, not the Lake District........
