Star rating:
3 star hotel

3.7

A hip, youthful hangout for art and design lovers in the city centre.

There's no such thing as a typical room at the Fox. Each was created by a different designer or artist. The results are wild and often odd. It's not just the rooms that make this the place to come for stimulation and fun. The lobby turns into a bar in the evenings with DJs spinning tunes at weekends and, as you might expect. this attracts a young, arty and creative crowd. It's not really a hotel for the business traveller or anyone wanting peace and repose. Catch this incarnation of the Fox while you can though. In 2011 it's undergoing a major revamp.

Location

Right in the centre of town, the Fox is handy for the city's main sights and shops.

Bedrooms

There's not much point trying to describe the rooms at the Fox as each is completely different. Check them out online if you can beforehand - the styles range so widely. They range from the spectacular to the quirky to the downright odd. None are havens of calm. Be quick though: in 2011 the hotel is undergoing a massive revamp that will see these unique rooms changing completely. The uniform bathrooms are smart and chic. All rooms come with flat screen TVs and free WiFi.

Public areas

The funky lobby is a good place to hang out in the evenings when it turns into a bar. It is not large, however. There's also an appealing roof terrace (weather permitting).

Eating and drinking

The breakfasts buffet is fresh, healthy and tasty but go elsewhere for food at other times of day.

Leisure facilities

There's not much in the way of leisure facilities but you can hire bikes from the hotel to go exploring.

Service

The service was fine when I last visited, if a little under pressure from several guests arriving at the same time. The warmth of welcome was perhaps a shade less than at the Fox sister hotel - the Kong Arthur - but I had no major gripes.

Who stays there

Young, urban, music-loving Hep Cats (lovers of retro and swing dance etc).

Price advice

The Fox has been offering some great discounts online lately, obviously better the further ahead you book. For the uniqueness and the location the discounts on offer are great value.
