Rooms are basic, but all you need. Plenty of atmosphere in the pub, and the food was fabulous! Staff were very helpful also. The setting is beautiful and it's close by Port Arthur with Nubeena not too far away.

As other reviews has mentioned the general hotel is very nice with lovey backdrop view to the ocean, meals at the tavern were plentiful and quickly served by an nice fire. The general room was larger than the normal with a fold out bed for another person with was a nice surprise. My only real complaint was with the supplied... More

I stayed here during the storms that created havoc across eastern Australia in June 2016. No power or communication connection due to trees being down but that didnt stop the fun. The hosts were lovely and I had a fun and very entertaining night of old world talking around the fire. Clean room, great rate and awesome location. Would stay... More

Partner and I stayed for 3 nights here. Staff are super lovely! And the room was clean and warm which is the most important thing. We had food two nights. First night was amazing! Second night not so great and we did say something to the staff and we were informed they had a different chef so that makes sense.... More

The Fox and Hounds probably needs some TLC but it's difficult to fault it on location and price. The rooms are spacious and have the basics even if the heater in the room was only working at about 20% capacity with no fan which compounded the issue of half the electric blanket not working. This was a touch of an... More

What a lovely building in a great setting. It is a older style building but the rooms were large and clean with water view of the lagoon/river out the back. The pub was wonderful with terrific atmosphere. Just like a old English Pub.

We arrived around 2pm on an admittedly cold June Day (about 8-12 degrees outside). We turned the heater on (max) as soon as we walked into the room at about 2pm, It's now 7pm and we are sitting on the couch still in our 4 layers trying to stay warm! (we are freezing!) Heating needs a serious upgrade! The grounds/location... More

As we travelled down the East Coast we decided to spend the night here after visiting Port Arthur. We stayed in one of the downstairs Motel Units. It was comfortable but not startling. I feel that it would be acceptable to most travellers and the bed was certainly comfortable and the room clean which I feel is most important. They... More
