Terrible food, so many better options in the area. You would be better of getting a $10 fish and chip meal from a take away than the dry piece of fish and dry undressed cup of salad and the lousy handful of crap chips they want $30 for at this place. Can recommend port arthur lavender or the felons restaurant... More

This hotel has some very outdated, past its time, dark and dingy apartments that leave a lot to be desired. The equipment was poor, the kitchen very basic, the standard of furniture scruffy. Internet in the room is expensive because it is delivered through a third party and although free in the hotel itself is erratic and of low quality.... More

The apartments need upgrading as the accommodation is terrible. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and we were stunned by the standard of the room. Also, the wood in our bathroom was rotting and the room overall was musty. The staff also didn't seem to have any idea as to how to run a hotel as we were submitted to... More

Our party of 5 (adults) stayed at the Fox and Hounds inn for one night in December and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was clean and had everything we needed and the 'Old English' Tudor style looked very cute. We dined at the on-site restaurant and it was 'okay'. The food didn't blow us out of the water but... More

My mantra "It was only $100 a night". Our Chalet had a plaque proudly stating it was opened in 1986. The decor has not changed since (only $100 a night!). But management proudly state that their motel rooms have been updated, how I wish we were in one of those. The bed in our chalet was dreadful, 3 nights of... More

We stayed here many years ago but friends stayed earlier this year and by the sounds of these reviews nothing has changed much. Its not an upmarket place to stay but you only have to sleep there and it close to everything I suppose. The restaurant was very average but it is close to the accommodation so that's a bonus...

We arrived , and were seated right near the bar , well away from the fire , there were only 2 other tables occupied .The room was a... More

I chose this place off the internet – not much choice of accommodation in Port Arthur from what I could see. I was a little disappointed when we got there. Room wasn’t clean and there were cobwebs too  It was only for one night and it was cheap and cheerful. I don’t think id stay here again but it... More

Its a great location to visit Port Arthur but Im afraid there is not many other great things. Pillows very old and lumpy, as was the bed. Walkways and balconies quite old and need refreshing. Restaurant did not have a great feel about it and staff were not rude but not approachable either. Quiet location. Was keen to go for... More
