Deep in the peaceful Northamptonshire countryside, Farthingstone Hotel & Golf Course offers bright, airy accommodation. It has a restaurant, bar, a challenging golf course and a squash court. Surrounded by tranquil farmland that is perfect for walking, the Farthingstone is 15 minutes drive away from the M1 motorway. Silverstone Race Circuit can be reached in 20 minutes by car. All of the modern rooms feature a flat screen TV, tea and coffee facilities and a private shower room. Some of the rooms also enjoy views of the local countryside. The Farthingstone Hotel restaurant overlooks the final holes of the course, serving traditional British food. The relaxing bar and lounge has a wood burner and leads to a games room with 2 snooker tables. With the course including woodland, water, large fairways and well-kept greens, guests have excellent golf facilities on their doorstep. Golf buggies and a well-stocked golf shop are available.
The staff were very helpful and tried hard to please us as a family - setting up appropriate beds for our small children.
The sound proofing of the rooms was awful. The attitude of the other guests was totally unacceptable. The men in the room below continued to have a party in their room until 4am - despite the young member of staff asking them to keep the noise down. They were rude and obnoxious to the staff and completely unaware of their antisocial behaviour. If this is a reflection of the kind of people who stay at this hotel, then it is a real shame as the staff and facilities were fine. The walls were paper thin, and this exhaibated the problem. I wouldn't stay here again because of the other guests.
