    very comfortable room although it had a sloping ceiling and banged my head numerous times! Did not detract from the comfort of the room and i would use the Fox inn again and defiantly recommend it

    Lovely place, friendly staff...drive from hell :)

    Lovely staff, the manageress was reallybhelpful and friendly. Its a really nice hotel, tastefully decorated, good food and very clean. We were unlucky and the room we were given (6) had dormer windows that were extremely long and the slope extended over the bed. The tv was very small. Getting here can be trecherous! If your sat nav takes youdown Aller Lane beware...this riad has a U Shaped ford and a very narrow 3 ton max loading bridge. If you go through the ford in a normal car you are likely to get stuck and need the fire brigade to rescue you. If you take the narrow bridge, booke your car in to get the allows refinished. In short dont go down this road

    Excellent Stay

    We received a very warm and genuine welcome from the team. The Inn is in a beautiful location and very good parking right onsite. Its a lovely place, with excellent service, staff and facilities. we ate in the restaurant and the food, menu and service were all excellent. The room was very clean, well furnished and had everything we needed. Overall I can't recommend The Fox Inn highly enough. A great find and we will return.

    Room very small

    Food was very good throughout the stay. It was disappointing that the smallest room was allocated to the only couple and lead booking for our three rooms and they refused to allow us to change as the computer couldn’t be changed! Our room was very small no hooks to hang coats etc- water leaked in the bathroom and floorboards were very noisy.
