Everything about this hotel is great. We last stayed here in 2008 when the present owners had been in place for about a year. I organised a family gathering for 50 people and we were very well looked after.
Five years later, the hotel has only improved. Our room, the honeymooners, now boasts an enormous canopied bed, it has more than enough storage space and is large. The bathroom is superb with separate tub and excellent shower, twin handbasins and very good toiletries. Bathrobes, bath sheets and slippers are all provided. It was spotlessly clean and there are plenty of power points. Wi-fi is unlimited and free.
We dined in both evenings on a dinner b & b basis and the cuisine was first rate. My scallops were very good and fillet steak one of the best I have had the pleasure of consuming, tender and with a lovely flavour. The house Merlot was good and reasonable value. Breakfast was also good.
The attention to detail throughout the hotel is excellent and Tara and Nick are very friendly, helpful hosts. The only thing missing, that I can think of, was a room safe, but it is probably unnecessary.
The Fox and Hounds deserves 5 stars.
