Stayed here one night and really enjoyed being there . The room was comfortable and the shower great. The breakfast was sufficient but having the open fire while you drank coffee and ate croissants was a real delight . The tour that goes with the cost of your stay is well worth it .

We called in off the street on the chance of a vacancy and were fortunate. We ended up spending 3 nights here. Had a fantastic room on the first floor with separate entry, bathroom and a huge bedroom. All was well furnished and very comfortable. The host (Michael) was very friendly and provided a historical tour of the property providing... More

We loved the property and the welcome was good. But, We were late for breakfast... FYI it's between 7.30 and 8.30, but not in the welcoming manual. The lady serving us made it very clear it was inconvenient (we got there at 8.30) to have us. We did have breakfast and we were told to leave the key in the... More

I apologize for what you took to be "attitude" from as staff member when you missed the breakfast service. That you felt you were receiving attitude is a major concern whether it was intended or not. Either way It was inappropriate and I have spoken to the staff member about it. To correct you on one point our guest compendium... More

Staying in the comfortable accommodation at Fox Hunters Return, where some of the buildings are convict-built, was a treat at the end of our families trip around Tasmania. After spending some of our trip sleeping in tents, we loved the comfortable beds and bathroom, the generous breakfast with fresh fruit muffins and the short tour of the buildings. Friendly hosts....

Thanks for the advice to potential guests about arriving early to ensure they get plenty of time to spend in our wonderful bookshop - The Book Cellar. The hard work of creating a fabulous bookshop from scratch in the old convict cellars under Foxhunters is rewarded every time someone exclaims "Wow" as they enter and take in this wonderful space...

My partner and I stayed here Jan 2 and it was just perfect. Our hosts were super friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, comfortable, and quaint. The wonderful building has a cute bookstore downstairs worth exploring for any hidden treasures. It is all set next to the gorgeous Red Bridge with fabulous tree sculptures and lots of history around... More

Thanks for taking the time to pass on your views after your recent visit. Foxhunters Return is made up of some beautiful buildings - the first dating back to the early 1830s and they do have a very raw and authentic beauty which has been retained. It is a delight when our guests enjoy the atmosphere of the property as... More

A recent family touring holiday around Tasmania saw us driving from Hobart to Launceston and Campbell Town was a great place to stop for a couple of days. Very historic area with lots of interesting convict and early settler stories as well as a surprisingly good range of food options around town. The Foxhunters Return is one of the show... More

The room, complimented by a theatrical breakfast , a historical tour and a great bookshop was a inspiring insight to the comforts and traditions of the previous unknown and historical travellers who stayed, and enjoyed the solid amenity of this fine example of a colonial coach inn

Recently stayed here after growing up in this little town and always being intrigued by the Foxhunters Return. Was not disappointed. Had a most delightful stay and Michael the host does the best croissants ever for breakfast. Really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend and stay again.

We had a wonderful night at the Foxhunters Return on our 40 years anniversary holiday. The room we stayed in was very spacious and made you think of all the people who had travelled and stayed here. You have privacy and a lovely fire in the wood heater makes it even more homely. The town is beautiful with all the... More

Thanks for your comments about your recent stay. It's pleasing that last minute visitors can enjoy the Foxhunters experience just as much as travellers who've planned a visit months ahead. Look forward to welcoming you back sometime. More
