        Very welcoming family run pub/hotel set in the middle of the beautiful Dorset countryside. Very dog friendly which was great for us with 3! The food was excellent, particularly the Sunday carvery.

        We enjoyed the quiet location. Our room was lovely and we had a great nights sleep. The food was excellent.

        very nice rustic charm about the place. Deep down a country road, exactly what we were after.

        Not the hotels fault, but I wished there were areas to go out walking around the countryside.

        Very nice, very hard to find but once there you get to know it. The only thing that put my husband and I off was on Sunday if was absolutely full of kids and families, no peace and quiet which is why we though being out in the sticks it would of been peaceful. Apparently I was told by the waitress its like it every sunday including winter time, so my advice is don't go on a sunday unless you want screaming kids around you. Otherwise I would stay again mid week.

        We enjoyed staying in a character Inn, the room was very comfortable and tasteful and was a very generous size for a standard room. We enjoyed our evening with drinks in the bar and a most enjoyable meal in the resteraunt in the evening, very good quality and reasonably priced. Breakfast was also very good and the staff very friendly and helpful. We will definitely look to stay at the Fox Inn in the near future.

        Everything was excellent

        Friendly & relaxed. Good inexpensive food with a lovely breakfast.

        The window in my room didn't close properly so there was a constant breeze, not good when it's -2 outside. This place is not pretentious, it is what it is, an big old house which was converted into an Inn. Quite remote but not difficult to get to. But you need a car. Apparently it is very busy in the summer months. Plenty of space and a great enclosed garden for the children.

        Meals were very good standard - very comfortable super king size bed - complementary bottles of water each day was a very nice touch. Very quiet and peaceful.

        This is not really a down side but the hotel is out in the sticks - a satnav in the car makes finding the Fox easy. It's well worth the drive!

        Really good food - local ingredients and really well prepared. Definitely work trying the cheeseboard. Staff are really friendly and helpful too.

        The rooms are quite comfortable. Good internet connection, but no mobile phone signal. The food was good. Interesting, beautiful location in the middle of a stretch of nice country side.

        The shower is a special system for someone coming from the continent and not very powerful.

        We booked a superior room that what very nicely decorated. the bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom was fitted to a good standard

        the restaurant and garden room area were in need of updating the furniture was very shabby. the restaurant had a 'fusty' smell to it.
