CALL OR TEXT US to book for 2020
As you can imagine our business has been hit extremely hard - with no new bookings coming in since news of the virus broke.
Although people believe that, because they haven't stayed yet they should be entitled to a refund of deposits made, they do not always appreciate that the hotel requires maintenance, carpet cleaning, linens, along with the regular business rates, utilities, licences etc - and all these need to be paid through the winter.
We take bookings and reserve rooms based on a customer's promise to stay with us for a certain period during the year, and this is a legal contract. When people go abroad they take out travel insurance in the event of having no option but to cancel. We ourselves strongly recommend to our customers that they do so too. Unfortunately people rarely do this for breaks in the UK, and expect the business owner to stand the loss.
Refunding every deposit at this point in time will most likely result in the complete closure of our business which is not in anyone's interest.
Having said all this, we do not want you to lose your deposit if it can be avoided, and for that reason we are very willing to transfer it to a stay later in the season when this crisis has passed.
Since this crisis is unprecedented, we are having to react to government advice and regulations as and when they are released.
People over 65 are recommended to self isolate for a period of 12 weeks from 16/3/2020.
If you wish to postpone your booking for stays commencing prior to 16/6/2020 please call us to re schedule your stay and your deposit will be transferred to the new dates.
If this advice changes, we reserve the right to update our cancellation policy.
We know people may not be in a position to choose an alternative date at this moment in time, so we are happy to float the booking for the time being.
If you wish to cancel your reservation the normal cancellation policy will apply.
We hope you understand our position, and will choose to support us in these difficult times. And we truly hope that you stay safe and well.
Our very best wishes,
Ann & Ray

At Foxhills we are working hard to reduce our impact on our fragile environment. We all need to do our bit to minimize our carbon footprint, but also to consciously eliminate as much single use plastic items from everyday use. Items like plastic straws, yoghurt pots, coffee cups and lids are having a devastating impact on marine wildlife. We are big on recycling too and kindly ask guests to assist us in ensuring recycle items do not end up in landfill.
At Foxhills Guesthouse Isle of Wight, we are pleased to offer a variety of vegetarian and vegan options alongside our traditional fare for meat eaters. We recognize that our food choices should compliment yours. Every day we will have a wide selection of non meat dishes, and in the summer months there will be delicious daily specials to choose from too.
You can be confident that all Vegan and Vegetarian meals are prepared and cooked without cross contamination from meat products.
Although we are Vegetarian friendly and Vegan Friendly we cater for guests who are fans of the traditional English Breakfast too. Foxhills is not exclusively Vegan or Vegetarian. We believe our guest house offers a wide variety to satisfy our guests' appetite!
