Having just returned from a one night stay at this hotel, I find myself in two minds. I would love to return and experience it properly but on this occasion, I spent very little time in the hotel. The hotel looked as if it's cared for as much as it can be, paintwork looks like it's regularly refreshed and the... More

Having just returned home from a 2 night stay I felt I must warn other travellers. Eating in the restaurant is both expensive in time and value for money, over 30 minutes between starters being cleared and main course arriving, the potions are small, I have heard off and experienced fine dining but this is a joke. Better food and... More

We stayed at Foxfields for two nights 14/15th August 2014 on an ‘all inclusive’ arrangement. The last time we visited at the hotel was some 9/10 years ago, then it had 5* status and was a Clarion with Comfort/Quality Inns, a franchise hotel group. It had been recommended to me by a client who was a Michelin Chef employed there.... More

Not what you would expect from a mercure hotel having stayed in a few. Staff seem very happy and friendly. Amazing in 2014 that the bar doesn't accept card... More

Dear Darren W, Sorry that we couldn't take credit cards at the bar as we have no terminal but the barman should have explained that you can pay at reception. I'll ensure this is communicated better in future. Thanks for your feedback. Regards David More
