“Absolutely terrible”
Reviewed 13 August 2007

Having spent sometime looking for somewhere to stay in Chipping Norton to no avail, I was pleased to get a double room at the Fox hotel for £60 B&B. From the outside it looked nice and it was centrally located with free parking around the back- all good so far. However the hotel itself really was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Everything was really dirty and, well, simply broken, there was no wallpaper or paint on the walls, just plaster marks, carpet throughout was black, the toilet made a noise for at least 15mins after flushing, there was a constant smell from the sink and the drains, cracks in the window less, extractor fan less, tiny gruppy shower room. The loud music from the bar went on until after 2pm it really was so bad that it was funny. The only plus was the nice bar man who initially served us- I hope they get on and refurbish this asap, without this I cannot see them getting future business.
