We stayed for one night. We where moved from our original booking of a spa suit to an apparently upgraded two bed suit. When we opened the door to our room we where nearly knocked over with a strong over powering musty odour. We went back to the reception and asked to be moved to another room. The second room...

We paid $175 for a 2 bedroom villa and that was too much! Very outdated and tired. Shower was terrible, the pressure was poor and the shower head wouldn't stay up. When we walked in the villa was like an icebox. Would have been nice to had heaters on prior to our arrival. Very average meal in the tavern too.... More

We visited the Port Arthur Heritage site and stayed here the night afterwards. Very close, good amenities. We had a nice dinner in the restaurant. Wifi is free in the restaurant and you need to pay for it in the motel rooms. Great spot for one night.

We stayed 1 night at the Fox and hounds after completing the Three Capes Walk We found the rooms clean and more than suitable for 1 night stay. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had dinner and drinks at the restaurant which was nice and handy to just stroll back to our room afterwards. I guess the rooms... More

We arrived about 6pm after visiting Port Arthur, and had not pre-booked. Friendly welcome, and we were advised of the short dinner service and bar operating hours. We got a queen size room - which was huge, with high ceilings! The poor little electric heater didn't look like it would make much of a difference. I was very happy to... More

Great spot and close to Port Arthur Historic site which is amazing and highly recommended. They say you need 2 days to see it all and you do! We had a nice room overlooking the river, layout different to most with the bathroom basin being in an area away from the shower/toilet but it worked. Shower/toilet room could be a... More

So disappointed. Whilst this place has all the basics that's about all it has. The rooms are cold. Really cold. And the heating is basically a waste of space. We left it on its highest setting all night and in the morning the room is not at all warm - maybe just the slightest chill taken from the air. The... More

The location is great, yet the service and food is deplorable. Not long after we arrived we asked the receptionist where a good restaurant was, and she basically told us we had no choice but here or felons... Then told us "you are in the country".... I then told her we come from the country implying we expect better ........ More
