Once again we had a wonderful Christmas lunch. The food was cooked and presented so well. The young staff really enjoy serving and work very well. The hotel itself looks very comfortable, the lounge and bar are tastefully decorated.

Our team stayed at Foxes for a two-day meeting.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Having a Conference in the hotel for a number of days is a new experience for us here at Foxes, but it enabled our students to use and see other aspects of the hospitality industry, which is very useful for their overall learning experience.
