Reviewed 13 November 2007

Having just returned from an overnight stay on the Isle of Wight, we were both disappointed to not be staying any longer. Just like other reviewers, we were greeted by James in the car park and shown around before being taken to our room. This personal touch and genuine welcome makes such a difference. The room was bright, well maintained and very clean. Good decor, warm and very quiet ensuring a good night's sleep. The bed linen was crisp and the bed comfortable. The ensuite was just as well maintained as the room. James and Paula have produced packs for the rooms containing very detailed information about the Isle of Wight, suggested tours and tips for travellers. They also have a cocktail menu and a choice of DVDs if you are too weary to leave the comfort of your room.

The breakfast was delicious and what a choice - Paula's homemade jam was yummy. The dining room provides a lovely setting and we felt we were able to enjoy our breakfast at our own leisurely pace. In the dining room are folders which contain reviews of local eateries. The reviews are written by guests staying at Foxhills and then collected by James and Paula. We went to a lovely restaurant based on the recommendations in these folders.

Our stay at Foxhills was very enjoyable and we hope to go back for longer next visit.

We spent three relaxing nights at this lovely guest house in October and it really was first class. The bedroom was comfortable, very clean and quiet.

The breakfast was more than plentiful (cereals, home made jams/marmalades, fruit salad, croissants, toast, full English etc.) and gave us more than enough energy when exploring the island!

As we were eating out each evening we found the reviews of local establishments left by previous guests extremely useful. We also thoroughly enjoyed the Spa which was so relaxing after a long day exploring.

The Foxhills Guest House is definitely somewhere we will be visiting again. Thankyou to all the staff for a wonderful stay.

From the personal greeting in the car park from James (the proprietor) on arrival we knew we had chosen the right hotel for our short break. Before being shown to our room we were given a guided tour of the hotel and its facilities (spa bath). Our room (Yaverland) was large, bright, airy, clean, well furnished and most of all relaxing. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choice, and you were always given the opportunity of seconds. Thanks to James and the staff we did not see for contributing to a pleasant and enjoyable stay. We would thoroughly recommend the hotel and we would not hesitate to book if we return to the Isle of Wight.

We have just returned after a delightful stay at Foxhills the attention to detail and the whole atmosphere was second to none we would have no hesitation in recommending. The breakfast was delicious and to the highest standard as were the rooms and facilities.

On a whim we stayed at the Foxhills in August for one night. It is a small friendly B and B hotel and the owner gave us excellent service and attention from start to finish. We stayed in the Four Poster room, which is excellent. The private spa room is an excellent touch and adds to the private romantic feel of the place. Lovely gardens and walking distance to old Shanklin which is lovely. Breakfast was home cooked and very fresh. If you are looking for a small private get- a- way at a very reasonable price, then you won't find a much better place to stay.

This was my first return trip to the IOW for 15+ years and was a surprise birthday break organised at short notice by my sister. I think she was surprised and pleased to get into such a pleasant hotel/B&B. I would definitely recommend Foxhills as there is clearly a lot of competition and the owners seem to go the "extra mile" in their attention to detail. From reading other Trip Advisor reviews it would seem this is a successful strategy as a lot of people make repeat bookings and I would certainly book there again.

We have just returned from a short break staying at Foxhills. We were greeted by James who offered to help with our bags and then showed us round the hotel and then we received a complimentary tray of tea.
We found our stay to be very enjoyable. The rooms were superbly decorated and extremely clean. At breakfast there was so much choice and the food was excellent. James's suggested tour of the Island was a brilliant idea as it took us to places we would never have found and the views/scenery were excellent.
We would certainly recommend Foxhills highly.
