Some of the other reviews of this hotel have described the ambience of the rooms as shabby chic; personally I would just call them shabby and in need of a good makeover, starting with a coat of paint. My room was very small, with hardly enough space to open my suitcase let alone sit anywhere except on the bed. Partly... More

We had 2 rooms for a 2 night break for our friends 40th birthday. Room no 2 was quite spacious compared with room no 3 which was a lot smaller, both rooms were very quaint but I'm sorry to say I think they could do with perhaps new carpets and linos in the bathrooms ( just a bit of tender... More

The Fox & Hounds is located in Exton a very beautiful village close to Europe's largest man made reservoir Rutland Water. It is quick and easy to travel to many local attractions as well as towns in the area like Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford. The hotel has nice rooms ( some of which need updating ) nice gardens with facilities... More

Called on Bank Holiday Monday. Service was nearly finished, but was offered the full menu. Sandwiches would have been more than adequate. Both mine and my partners food were piping hot and bursting with flavour. A hidden gem for itallian lovers. The service, food, staff and whole experience was wonderful.

Stayed Friday and Saturday night. We had room 3 which is the smallest double - anyone over 6ft tall will find the bed cramped, This is more than offset by the quality of the dining though, the food is simply superb and complimented by excellent beverages. Staff were always polite and helpful so made for a great stay. Finally the... More

We were two couples, the men practicing for the Land's End to John O'Groats cycle ride while the two women walking/reading etc. Complication was bringing a dog, very few places seemed willing to have a dog. Upon arriving there was a warm welcome even though we were early arriving. Rooms were lovely, decoration wise and cleanliness-wise. Saw that someone had... More

It was early evening on a Saturday and we asked if we could book a table but as they were fully booked they suggested if we ate now they would fit us in.They were very accommodating. We had some delicious food we... More

We stayed here for a night in February as family are moving into the area. The Fox and Hounds is at the centre of this very pretty estate village, on a village green. The rooms are delightful - in-keeping with the period building and furnished traditionally in a sort of french shabby-chicesque style. We dined in he restaurant and had... More
