The Fox and Hounds Inn is a short drive to the Port Arthur Historic Site and we decided to stay there on the recommendation of friends. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and adequate for our one night stay. However, it was a basic motel room, pretty old fashioned and probably a bit overpriced for what you got. It was cold, windy and raining when we stayed and, once we worked out how to use the heater, we had a nice warm night in the room with no issues. The TV and phone reception is not very good but it is like that in the whole area, you also have to pay for WiFi. We were in a stand alone chalet right on the water at the back of the complex so had plenty of privacy and a fantastic view, not sure if the double storey block of units would be as good to stay in but there were plenty of other people there and it seemed like a popular choice. We had dinner at the Restaurant and both had excellent meals. The restaurant, bar and menu are Olde English themed which is something different. The meals were a little bit pricey but in saying that the meals we had and saw were huge and we found most meals in Tasmania to be more expensive than we expected. Overall it was a pleasant enough experience and I would recommend it to people and probably stay there again.
