Staff were extremely friendly and very welcoming from the get go. We were shown to the spa area by a member of staff. The spa consisted of a gym, sauna, steam room and pool. The pool was lovely and warm. After enjoying the facilities we were shown to the dining room for our afternoon tea which came with a glass... More

I recently went to Foxfields fr afternoon tea and to use the leisure facilities. The building is pleasant, though it did feel a little dated. The leisure facilites had rather adventurously been called a spa, but was really a small pool with sauna and steam room. All pleasant and well kept. However, what made our visit were the staff -...

Spent a lovely afternoon with my sister using the hotel facilities. These do need updating hence why I've only given 4* but didn't spoil our enjoyment (I'm sure the new owners are aware of this and already have plans to update). As for the afternoon tea.............It was fantastic! We will be returning hopefully for the girls night in package that... More

I stopped overnight with my husband as part of a coach holiday to the Isle of Man. The hotel is now in private hands having been part of the Mercure group of hotels and they are in the process of upgrading various areas of the hotel and grounds. I can see why it is popular for weddings because the setting... More

We were staying in the hotel to be near family, so didn't eat in the hotel or use the leisure facilities. The large room was clean, but in need of attention/updating. The bed had a very firm mattress and the shower took a very long time to warm up (but was good when it did). There was free wifi but... More
