“Warm welcome and excellent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed stay for 3 nights. The bed was very clean and comfortable as was the whole house. They go overboard to make you welcome and the breakfast service is excellent.

The only problem was the temperature in our room, it was stifling. There was no air flow through the window and the sun beat on that side of the house all day. This is a very old house with no air conditioning, and I don't know what they could do about it. There was a small table fan that did nothing to help at all. I found it cooler downstairs in the halls and the sitting rooms. I would never mention it to the owner as they were so kind and did all they could to make us happy, and they were full - but we had hot sleepless nights. Which was a pity as everything else was good.

Price was reasonable and they booked the Ferry for us which we paid on departure.It all worked out well and we allowed to board an earlier Ferry in both directions without extra charges.

Room Tip: Ask about rooms that face the south and if a cooler alternative if the heatwave continues.

Check-in, a dream, wonderful warm welcome from James, baggage immediately taken from car to our room without question, brilliant orientation, such a warm and friendly feeling you immediately know you are going to have a wonderful stay.
Twin Room St Catherine’s lovely, tea /coffee making facilities, good quality linen and towels all nicely laundered and fresh.
Lovely private sauna, if it is it free it is for your use such a nice touch.
Garden is amazing, walk down some steps and you find a lovely shaded area with some tables and chairs and a weeping willow that hangs gloriously over this area.
Breakfast is so good, such a lot of choice, from cereals, fruit to the traditional cooked … try the black pudding stack, not to be missed…
Take the tour as suggested around the Island and you see some amazing seaside/country views.
Excellently located, within easy walling distance to Shanklin where there are lot’s of places to eat/drink and be merry………..
Again on check out , offers of luggage taken to our car, unusual when leaving the same lever of service is offered.

Just returned from two nights at Foxholes. I thought it was a b&b because James gives such attentive service and before we arrived helped us over the phone select our room and even booked our ferry! The service is of an excellent hotel with room service offered (we never used) and a whirlpool (we used and loved). Breakfast is outstanding. There are at least 10-12 fruits go choose from for your fruit bowl in the am and then a hot breakfast from a good menu and the homemade Jams are amazing. Location is excellent: we walked into Shackling and enjoyed an amazing Indian meal at Purple Mango. And then a great pub meal the next night at The Village Inn. Very pretty area. thank you for all the directions and advice!

What a fantastic place to stay. Our party of 6 were all given great hospitality by James and treated to great food by Paula. Nothing was too much trouble, a real must stay gem! We can't wait to re visit.

Not sure what to add to the other positive reviews of Foxhills. Even prior to staying, every effort was made to ensure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Both James and Paula go out of their way to make you feel personally and genuinely welcomed to their home. The room was lovely, very well presented with a very comfortable bed.
The breakfast menu selection is one of the best and beautifully cooked every day. I praise particularly the fresh fruit selection - delicious. We used their snack menu on a couple of occasions, not wishing to eat out and it matched the same high quality of the breakfasts. Nothing seemed too much trouble to ensure any guests' comfort.
Most unusually for a B&B, they offered the use of a Spa room with numerous soft towels and towelling robes for your use - wonderful to relax in after a day out exploring.
We have no hesitation in recommending this B&B and will definitely be booking again on our next trip to the Isle of Wight

We had a fantastic time which was helped by the weather but 'Foxhills' was brilliant and James, the owner was really attentive. The accommodation was 5 star and very comfortable, breakfasts were varied and delicious. We would have no hesitation in recommending "Foxhills' to anyone.

I fully endorse all the good things said by other reviewers. From the moment I arrived was very impressed by the hospitality and genuine friendliness of James the owner. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the quality of the food served for Breakfast was excellent. The property is only a short walk to the high street and is an ideal base to explore the Island. Will definitely come back again.
