Have just stayed for 2 nights at the Fox Hotel on a KGB deal and first impressions were not good, scruffy outside and dated interior with no atmoshere. Was really surprised to be told that they do not do food at night as I would have thought the whole idea of doing these sort of deals was to benefit from extra trade, but the locals in the bar were very helpful in telling us places to eat. We were showed to our room (No 5) and on initial first impressions it had stylish decor but on closer inspection it looks like the refurbishments hadnt included the scruffy and frayed carpet which was also replicated in the corridors with large rips in some areas. The bathroom was clean but window sills could have done with a good clean. Breakfast was in a really dated room but was good quality and cooked fresh to order - staff were all really friendly and helpful. We were directed to the car park at the back which led to a patio/garden area at the back which was the same as the interior of the hotel, scruffy and atmosphereless and this was our approach into the hotel which smelt of stale chip fat. On visiting other pubs and bars in the town this was by far the worst all the others had atmosphere and were warm and inviting. General overall impression was I was disappointed and this place really needs an overhaul to bring it up to date and be given some TLC to give it atmosphere. As our trip was given as a gift I am glad I wasnt paying for it but we did enjoy touring the Cotswolds and trying out the pubs and restaurants in Chipping Norton which I have to say were excellent in terms of service and quality of food.
