Excellent lunch with chums from the States.
Food was simple but very tasty.
Service was very friendly, but not overbearing.
Considering the location of the Club and value it is hard to think of a better place to meet up with friends.
I have stayed at the Fox Club once before in one of their suites and had booked the same again this time round. However, on arrival I was given a standard room. I actually like the Fox Club a lot and have also used it for meeting people in my line of work. The rooms are very comfortable (I was not too worried on this occasion about being allocated a room not suite as the latter is not a huge step up in size) and location very very good (one minute from Green Park Tube Station). It's quiet too. However, I still can't quite feel I can recommend it at 5*. The reason simply is it can't quite make up its mind what it wants to be. Its cross between club and hotel is an interesting idea but the building size, particularly the ground floor compromises both functions. As a club there is a good bar but seats are limited. As a hotel, aside from the rooms there is little public space, just the aforesaid bar and dining area at the back. I would like to see morer space given over to comfortable relaxed seating for both guests and club members. That said, although it doesn't pull off the club/boutique hotel experience I'd really like to see, it really is a very good place to stay in central London, particularly if you want to get away from the anodyne experience of many of the larger chain hotels.
We stayed in The Fox Club in mid January. The location is fantastic, just a minute or two from Green Park station. The staff were pleasant and friendly and our suite was perfect. We will use the club the next time we are in London.
We got a triple room at The Fox Club and had a great experience. The folks that worked there could not have been friendlier, or more helpful. We loved having the little bar next door available to us. It was nice to have our own little place to grab a beer, unwind, and plan our next adventures.
The room was a good size, and the bathroom was very nice (much nicer than at most hotels).
We LOVED the location. This was my first trip to London, so I really have nothing to compare it to.... but the tube station was right around the corner. We also walked to Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey from the hotel. Around the corner is a super cute area called Shepherd's Market. There were lots of restaurants and bars, which is always a plus.
Overall we were very happy w/ our experience.
We have stayed at the Fox Club about four times now in the past 5 years and used to love it for its location and cleanliness-however on this stay just before Christmas it was starting to seem everso slightly seedy!Some of the check in/bar staff seemed somewhat preoccupied and unfriendly and the decor is starting to need updating.
In the room the bed and linens were clean and fine but the lamps and particularly the blinds in the bathroom were covered in thick dust.The bath sealant was discoloured and unappealing and the blind in the bedroom stained.
While we were there the bar was running some outside functions and there was often a crowd of smokers at the door as we came and went-they were also advertising hen night dos in the bar as well!
It isn't the most expensive option in the area but neither is it cheap and what used to seem great value for money just sadly isn't anymore!
No idea this place existed until late the previous evening when it popped up on Late Rooms. Turned out it was perfectly situated just yards off Piccadilly at Green Park and a five minute walk from the RO-SL where we had a dinner event. There was a very slight mix up over the room because of an inadequate email from LR but this was resolved entirely satisfactorily by the Fox Club within minutes of arrival. This is an old house well adapted as a private members club with bar and good quality dining room as well as the nine bedrooms. We used eight and seven which are very well decorated and on the upper floors. There is no lift, probably because of the age, configuration and importance of the classic building which was the home for many years of the Whig radical and notorious politician Charles James Fox. The staff throughout our stay were informal friendly and entirely helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and very well equipped. I was not aware of any traffic noise. My only petty gripe was the lack of a shaving mirror. Wet shaving without being able to get close enough to the main bathroom mirror can be mildly hazardous. But this place scores 98% on everything else. The various and steady stream of members in the cosy little bar and dining room suggest that this is a civilised but unstuffy set up. As hick rustic folk from the far south west we would not get enough use to justify membership but we will certainly prefer this delightful place to others on our three or four trips to London each year. If you are planning a weeknight then you will probably need to book a lot further ahead than we did.
