looking for local hotel for business visitors

lovely contempary room, some nice extras in drinks and spring water.

Very comfortable bed. Food in the bar was excellent, certainly wasn't pub grub more fine dining. Two small points firstly the bathroom floor was half covered in water which I hadn't noticed until just going to bed so mopped up using bath mat. Secondly you couldn't seem to turn the over bed lights off when in bed and had to turn them off at the door, which was a bit odd.

Best customer service outside the US!

We booked a room at the Fat Fox as somewhere to lay our heads - we did not expect it to be as perfect as it was.

our room was in a converted barn out back of the main building, which was a superb experience - can imagine it being even better in the summer as the room had French doors. Room was spotless, full of atmosphere and beautifully laid out (kitkats in the coffee cups and designer toiletries were a nice touch). What really set the Fat Fox aside, for us, was the customer service. Having worked in the industry, in the UK and abroad for many years, customer service will make-or-break a stay for me. My partner and I were treated to absolutely the best customer service I have ever seen outside of the US.... staff were knowledgeable, polite, attentive and lacking the forced affectations that you often find in large chain hotels (they actually looked like they wanted to be there!). Local beers were amazing, breakfast was fresh, hearty and perfectly done... even the locals were friendly, without being overbearing. My partner and I would absolutely recommend the Fat Fox for a business or leisure break and will definitely go back.

Highly Recommended

Attention to detail first class.

They even called to say that my colleague had left a shirt in the room. Very few hotels with several stars would bother!

Ideal Base for Oxford and the Chilterns

We had a most enjoyable overnight stay at The Fat Fox.

Reading the printed menu prior to leaving home, we thought that the food would be standard, pub grub. However, the menu might read as such, but the food itself was excellent and the special on the night we stayed was delicious. The accommodation is in a block at the back. The room was clean and apealling and the bed comfortable - most important.
