So many faults regardless of age of facility. Would not return or recommend! Much needed upgrade though garden surroundings are well kept. TRACEY was nice though 😊

            Some Good Aspects”

            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.

            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 Rooms and bathroom are a bit outdated.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.

            Senior staff were very helpful but junior staff pretty ordinary. Food was good standard and reasonable price. Shower taps at bath level (no bath) so your head got instantly wet. We were greeted in the room by a big dead moth on the floor but otherwise cleanliness good.

            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.

Had a good meal & staff in the dining room on the Sat/Sat night were lovely.Rooms would probably of been a bit cold but we learnt from previous reviews & took a heater with us! For $125 a night - I would of expected shampoo & conditioner in the rooms. Pleasant stay.
