            Fox and the Hounds Inn is a decent hotel for the price. The staff is amazing, very kind and it is close to everything Port Arthur has to offer. Rooms and bathroom are a bit outdated. We could hear our neighbors through the walls. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

            Staying at Port Arthur”

            We chose this hotel for it's quirkiness. The room was more than spacious, and we had a gorgeous view of the lake from our room. This is close to all you would go to see in Port Arthur. There was a lovely little bar area inside, but the best feature is the restaurant. The meals are fantastic, flavoursome and plenty. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The only thing is that it is that the property is a bit tired and really needs some TLC, that's why I only gave 4 stars for cleanliness. However for the money we paid it was fine.

Unable to access any station on the TV and the staff didn't seem concerned when I pointed it out - may have been better not to have a TV at all.

            The hotel is well located if you don't want to face a long drive after a day at Port Arthur. The hotel itself is very inviting and the motel rooms have some good aspects. You can forgive the discoloured water, the knee-high taps in the shower, the low water pressure, the lack of microwave oven and the weak WiFi coverage if you concentrate on the generous size of the room, the lovely bay view through the huge windows, the comfortable beds and the efficient heater. We enjoyed our night's stay and were pleasantly surprised with the complementary buffet breakfast.

            We had s good room that was corner so a little larger, but all rooms looked a generous size . Old but well kept. Facilities clean though curtains a bit dusty smelling . We did not dine there so cannot comment But did enter to look around and found it very eclectic. Easy aCcess to Port Arthur . Only criticism would be old tins for the smokers at door of motel rooms . We are non smokers and had Neighbours at our door laughing and smoking that we could smell it in our room . Believe smoking area should be away from all doors .

            The Fox and the Hound is a great old English style pub. The motel rooms are clean and comfortable with some of the facilities a little tired and old. It was perfect for resting and enjoying a few alcoholic beverages after hiking for a few days but as there are limited choices around, the value for money is not as great. The staff were friendly and the area is beautiful to explore Tasmania.

            Food expensive, but nice. Room was adequate but needs renovating, and was not up to scratch with cleanliness mainly in the bathroom. However bed comfortable and to be able to have a few drinks and walk to the room was a bonus. Thought it was over priced, considering the accommodation we had in the area the previous night at Masons Cottages, port Arthur
