This is our second visit here and this time we brought friends with us. We really enjoyed the charm of the property and the friendliness of the staff. I felt like I was taken back in history in a modern way. Breakfast was lovely and served in a beautiful front room. Our friends enjoyed the tour of the place and... More

Our three night stay at the Foxhunters Return was very pleasant, and Michael the host was especially welcoming and friendly. Each morning, after a delicious continental breakfast in the charming front room, we would head off to tour the local area - it was always nice to return to our comfy room at the inn after a busy day.

I've stayed here a couple of times when having business meetings over a couple of days at Campbell Town. First off it is very easy to locate and access is easy. Convenient off road parking. Friendly welcome and information provided about the area. You will need to grab an evening meal at one of the eateries a short walk away... More

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
