This is our second time at the Fox and Hounds and this time we stayed half board for 3 nights with our two children and dogs. We had room 19 which has 2 double beds, a double sofa bed/lounge/tv area and a small enclosed terrace overlooking the lovely rear garden. The hotel is wonderfully managed and staffed in a calm,...

Stayed here on a business trip with a colleague for only one night but wished it had been for longer. The hotel has lots of character and is stunning. Fantastic location for a wedding. The rooms are well furnished and beautiful artwork throughout. Everything was spotless and had more than enough supplies to keep you happy. The bar and restaurant... More

The fox and hounds hotel is a simple place but it is very well run by welcoming staff. We stayed for a two night break and for what we paid, was more than good value. The hotel amenities are very basic but i feel that if there were things like a swimming pool or the like it would lose the... More

It is a lovely location near parents new house, staff young but ok, bar and restaurant were empty most of the time and breakfast was quite average, specially if you don't want fried food in the morning. Anyhow, most surprisingly is that we found a hotel nearby with a great Arts & Crafts house, golf course, swimming pool and all... More

Thank you for your review and we are glad you like this area and even more glad you find our staff youthful in appearance! We do have fruit, yoghurt, cereals, porridge, muffins with poached eggs all on the breakfast menu and are more than happy to cook anything special to order so I am sorry that was not sufficient .Our...

We have just returned from our first family holiday since our son was born and we could not have chosen a better location. We were made to feel incredibly welcome from the minute we arrived and all of the staff were incredibly accommodating. Our son absolutely loved his stay and felt right at home wandering around in his socks and... More

I stayed here with my husband for a wonderful three night break. Friendly staff, lovely setting, clean and comfortable room. The highlight for us is the top notch locally sourced menu, the quality and presentation is a real treat. Keep that chef!

This hotel is a beautiful location for a wedding which was our reason for visiting . Beautiful grounds and peaceful location. It's quite pricey being the only luxury hotel in the area and the rooms could do with a little face lift but overall friendly staff and a great atmosphere in the bar, good food and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here last week and appreciated the warm greeting we received on arrival for our for two nights stay. We found all the staff friendly and extremely helpful throughout. The room we were allocated overlooked the well kept gardens at the rear with well developed trees giving it a picturesque backdrop to behold. Our room was fine and the... More

Firstly this is a really nice small country hotel, great location in beautiful North Devon. However, the standard of furnishings as you move deeper into the hotel gets poorer and poorer. Lovely Laura Ashley wallpaper in the main areas of the hotel, but as you move towards room 14, the decor gets poor. Stains on faded curtains, cushions and bed... More

Thank you for the advice and photos which appear to show the buffet at the end of breakfast rather than what we normally offer. We strive to replace items at peak times but clearly were remiss in this instance. I am very sorry that you experienced disappointment and can only say that had we been made aware of the issues...
