“Great Location, Comfortable Room, Delicious Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We spent one night in Chipping Norton and were happy that the location of the Fox Hotel is right on the main square. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants. The room was very nice and quiet. Very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and filling.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Stayed here at the start of July 2013 for 2 nights. The good points is that there is lots of parking and the staff are really friendly and helpful BUT the room was filthy and I felt I had to take a picture as soon as we went in the room it was that bad! If we hadn’t travelled over 150 miles I would not have stayed.

As soon as you go upstairs to the rooms you get an overwhelming smell of fat coming from the kitchens. Not the nicest thing to smell when you walk in. The carpets on the stairs are threadbare and torn in places and it wasn’t any better in the bedroom. The bedroom carpets are long overdue a steam clean and there was a huge stain on the bed valance. It was the first thing I noticed so rooms cannot be cleaned very well (see pictures).

Generally everything could have done with replacing and decorating and this is one place we will not be staying at ever again.

We stayed here mid June along with another couple on KGB deal, which was fantastic value for bed and breakfast, good clean rooms small but adequate bathroom, free WiFi.
All staff were very friendly and provided lots of good local info, we enjoyed the local Hookey beer and breakfast was excellent.Chipping Norton itself is a good location to visit with plenty of places to eat.
We also visited Blenheim Palace and spent a day in Oxford travelling by bus as recommended by Fox staff, would definitely stay here again

Visited using a 3 night KGB deal. The pub is well situated in the middle of the village close to shops, other pubs, restaurants and supermarket, and has ample parking. We were greeted on arrival by a very helpful lady who was working behind the bar. She booked us in and showed us up to our first floor room which was very spacious, had a good sized comfortable bed and a size-able en suite bathroom, and has tea and coffee making facilities. The pub does not serve evening meals so we were advised that the Kings Head around the corner did and the meals are reasonably priced.A good tip as the other pubs and restaurants in the village are a bit pricey. English breakfast was a substantial plateful that set you up for the day. They liked you to say in advance the time you were likely to want breakfast as the lady who cooks it also takes your orders, clears the tables and serves it along with the drinks and toast. If you breakfast at the same time as others then there can be a bit of a delay. The pub itself serves Hook Norton cask ales and has the usual mix of pub characters. The barmaid who greeted us originally was very helpful in suggesting how best to get into Oxford and other places worth visiting. Thanks very much to her. On the whole we enjoyed our visit to the Fox as a bargain break but if you are picky you will see that a lick of paint on skirting boards and walls would not go amiss and maybe it might have been nice if a vacuum cleaner had been run over the bedroom carpets during our stay. Oh and finally the town clock is just outside the pub windows and chimes on the hour and every half hour all through the night and day. If you are a light sleeper it may disturb you but we found that a few pints before going to bed sorted that problem out.

We have just returned from a 3 night KGB deal stay at this hotel. We stayed in room number 4 at the front of the hotel. It was noisy at times outside but this didn't disturb our sleep or spoil our stay. Our room was lovely with plenty of storage space. The shower room was spacious and bright. Breakfast was cooked to order, I had a deliciously filling bacon butty! Special mention and thanks to the friendly kitchen staff. It's a shame the hotel doesn't do evening meals.
The hotel was in an ideal location, many places of beauty were within a short driving distance. I've given the ratings based on the fact it was a KGB deal and great value for money!

The location of this Pub with rooms is ideal, and has it's own car park.
The pub it self is a little tired although the landlord appears to be trying hard to improve matters.
The staff are friendly enough, the breakfast was good and the rooms are fine, except that they could do with a lick of paint.
It's value for money and worth staying if you are on a budget.

Room Tip: Room 3 is quiet although it has an en-suit shower and toilet, the sink is in the room and is in need...
