The Fox Inn was a nice surprise. Located just a 5-10 minute walk from lots of shops, restaurants and the breathtaking Abbey Gardens. The pub is quaint and friendly with an excellent, charming staff. The food was very good and there were plenty of choices on the menu. Our hotel room exceeded our expectations with lots of creature comforts. The... More

Great location, near the Abbey Gardens and cathedral, and within walking distance of the shops. The room was extremely comfortable, quiet, with plenty of facilities. The staff were very welcoming, and responded immediately when there was a small problem, soon resolved. They went out of their way to attend to our requirements. Breakfast was served efficiently, though we would say... More

We stayed for one night and found the rooms excellent, spacious, comfortable, clean and some really nice touches. All of the rooms are in the courtyard and so no road noise. Very friendly staff and a real pleasure to stay.

Room fine, staff fine, evening meal fine. Disappointed by breakfast. "Choice of seasonal fruit bowl" was a bowl containing 20 grapes and three thin slices of melon, not for each guest but all, cereal was Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies or Alpen, but worst of all was the "grilled lightly smoked kipper" which turned out to be one of those ghastly...

My wife and I arrived late on a Sunday evening after a six hour drive and needed accommodation for the night. We asked a police officer for some help and he suggested the Fox along with another. The officer ended up giving us an escort to The Fox Inn. We were fortunate enough that they had one room left. Even... More

Difficult to know where to start but probably best to start with accommodation. The Fox has ample parking but the stand out feature was the room itself. We stayed in apt #2, which is spacious and extremely comfortable with a large and very comfortable bed, sofa and good wardrobe space. The bathroom was a good size, well maintained and decorated...

Very good value for money. Had room below room 6. Warm at night but had air con on even in February. Large room and bathroom great shower all very high standard . Behind pub on ground floor , no noise. Would recommend and stay again. Didn't eat so can't comment on dinner but good breakfast choice.

We were booked into room 6 which is upstairs, it had its own private entrance, with a little hall area downstairs which was useful and then wooden stairs up to the room. Finished to a very high standard and very clean. The stand alone bath was amazing, and the bathroom itself very well presented, with underfloor heating and large fluffy... More

Don't imagine because it's a pub and a restaurant that they have scrimped on the rooms - some of the best bathrooms and king size beds in town. Wooden floors, amazing bathrooms with monsoon showers and I reckon those sheets are 400 thread count. Plus they have great Sunday jazz nights - and I mean proper jazz not synthesised jazz.... More

Don't worry we're not hidden, we're on 1 Eastgate Street, but thank you so much for such kind words, you don't know how much a review like this means to the team at The Fox, kind words cost nothing.
