Recently stayed at the foxhouse and reading the reviews did not what to expect. on arrival had to wait a few minutes at the bar for boooking in, the young lady was very informative and showed us to our room which was quite spacious and apart from a few cobwebs quite clean with only small things like the cobwebs and tea spoon not being cleaned.
We was in room 10 and the only downfall was a noisy extractor fan going off every twenty minutes or so for around five minutes at a time,luckily enough i had packed some ear plugs and a good nights sleep was enjoyed.
I think the main downfall is the outside areas need a drastic clear up as on arrival the grass areas had been left to run wild and exsisting pot plants had not been tendered to for a long time and the outside decking to be honest was minging with a deep black gunge on top of it, not vey nice if you was to eat on there.
On the side for the entrance to the accommadation area, there is another outside area and this furniture needs repalcing imho once again the furniture has been negleted and i am surprised nobody has not broken an ankle with the chains that are placed around the bottom of the furniture with no warning to that effect and again the grass areas have been negleted, if you was driving or walking past this building i am sure it would turn you off booking.
The continental breakfast was quite good and the young staff are very friendly and helpfull but i do feel that perhaps an older head person could steer the younger staff regarding cleaning duties for the pub and rooms.
