My husband and I stayed here for one night, we had read the reviews and thought we would still give it a go. The hotel is old and in need of some refurbishments, the room was cold, heater did not work very well, no air conditioning in the room if you travel in summer. We were lucky that the chef... More

As part of a tour group, we stayed in this hotel and have to say it was a very disappointing experience. The external facade of the hotel gives the appearance of a well kept establishment, which quickly disappears as soon as the door to the room opened. just inside the door was dust and leaves blown in under the crack...

Easily found on the main road leading up to Port Arthur 2.5 km from the main Port Arthur historic site. It is a motel type complex with a variety of room types and plenty of parking. There is a restaurant and bottle store onsite and breakfast is served in the mornings in the main building (which houses the restaurant). Probably... More

When we arrived at Fox and Hounds in we were really disapointed. The tour operator discribed a very nice motelroom with a view on the lake. When we got in and openen the curtains, we only saw an enormous plant. One of us had to sleep on a sleepingcouch with a very thin matrass. The room wasn't clean at all.... More

The hotel is about a 3 minute drive from the Port Arthur Historical Site so the location is quite handy. The room we stayed in was very tidy and quite comfortable although it was very dated. The shower and toilet are in a separate room with the vanity basin and tea making facilities in another room. You can purchase a... More

The place looks like it needs some love or at least a manager who made sure basic maintenance was kept up. Drafts under the door letting cold air, bugs and leaves into the room. Bathroom is weird to say the least with the only basin across the entry in the kitchenette. One power point in the kitchen to run both... More

We arrived late at the nearby camping site, and the office had closed when we arrived at 1820hrs. The alternative for us was to bring our large campervan along to spend the night at the Fox and Hounds. To say that we spent the night more comfortably than we would have in the camping park is an understatement. The lady... More

We enjoyed our soup and barrumundi meal and the room was basic but comfortable. The hotel is situated on a hill and you can walk out and get a view over the water. The Inn is nicely placed for a visit to Port Arthur.

Just goes to show how misleading a website can be! The Fox and Hounds looks idyllic and yes, it does have a waterfront location but the reality was far from idyllic. A very unpleasant room awaited us, so much so that I didn't like to walk on the floor in bare feet! The restaurant gave poor service and worse food.... More
