Really cute place to stay. Maybe best to stay in summer though, we had the heater going and ended up putting towels near the door to stop the cold air coming in. We could hear other people's conversations through the walls. Location was great for a trip to Port Arthur and remarkable Cave. We had a bit of awater view... More

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were slightly old -needed a bit of TLC and were cold. It is winter but the little heater was positioned in the worst spot and didn't heat the room. I would have expected a little better quality for the price we paid to stay here. We dined in the restaurant both nights.... More

The food and service was so bad, I was embarrassed for them. I ordered a scotch fillet and I swear, it tasted like it was cooked in old dishwashing water. The vegetables were like scraps that had fallen off a truck and served. Hospital food tasted better. Then, I try to log on to Wifi, to share photos to family... More

Our room was clean but cold. I got a heater from reception, but didn't feel comfortable leaving it on overnight (looked very old and very dirty). The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet so we had a good night sleep.

We stayed up the road but had dinner here on the 4th and 5th. Both times the staff accommodated all our needs over dinner with an autistic child and the meals were quite nice. Also we did drop in both times without booking and it was no issue to get a seat. Will definitely be back again. ☺

Looking at this place from the outside you would think you were going to be in for a treat, let me save you the disappointment. Although the rooms have possibly been decorated this decade, they are cold, the wall heater is little more than a warm breeze. There is not adequate blankets, I'm lucky I brought my own. They do...

The waiter had absolutely no idea what he was talking about, only vegetarian meal was unavailable. Got mains, 3 out of 6 were inedible, ie cold, reheated in microwave without even wrapping them in cling film. Unfortunately we could not eat elsewhere due to the late hour, so we went hungry. Last time we are here it was good, may... More

Was attracted by the pictures on a brochure so went to have our dinner there. The lady who served us was impatient we thought maybe she was just busy. We waited for ages for our dinner to arrive while the two kids were getting upset. The food was a let down too there wasn't much to choose from. Regretted going.

Beautiful hotel with great views! We stayed here for 1 night only with my husband, but it was enough to get positive emotions and love this place. All premisses looks adorable inside and good and comfortable inside. Good price for what you get + view. Dinner was nice as well, I would definitely recommend smoked quail salad! Staff was very...

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights at The Fox and Hound and loved it. The room was spacious, clean and beautiful view over the lake. We ate at the restaurant there for 2 nights and the food was lovely, the staff were very helpful and friendly, we thought the ambience and character of this hotel was great... More
