      Really comfortable, cosy room. Very clean and tidy with a nice view of the lake. Only downside was the water was only suitable for showers but not a big deal breaker.

      Great location close to Port Arthur

      This was a conveniently located hotel only a few minutes’ drive from the entrance to Port Arthur. The room was a motel room, had a lovely water outlook and contained all the necessities. We had dinner in the adjacent hotel building which had a fireplace, welcome on a cold night. The only downside was discovering one of the extra pillows from the cupboards had obviously been used.

      DO NOT BOOK FOX AND HOUND. The reception had spider webs, curtain falling apart, crap everywhere. The unit stank, coffee spilt on the kitchen floor, kitchen stove had inbound grease on the hot plates, bathroom shower tiles about to fall off, bathroom vanity was falling apart. Sign in kitchen saying not to drink the water. We didn’t stay and asked for a full refund.

      Great little motel room

      Only 1 KM from Port Authur. Great spacious motel room with a beatiful view of the lake with a mini kitchen. Was dissapointed that the resturant & bar was closed until end of August but really enjoyed our stay.

      Very disappointed would not stay here again. No amenities open for food or beverages and didn’t know this before booking. Received email just before checking in about this just disappointing. It was cold and the heating was not good for the room

      This was a nice place to stay, however I ended up with two single beds. I had organised a queen bed but some how ended up with two singles we made into a double bed. The water is not drinkable and we actually both got sick from ear infections maybe the water needs small amount of chlorine in it. Overall we booked ask David without house keeping being a public holiday we never new about. No food either. I feel the water needs to be updated and a notice if no house cleaning on public holidays. Other people staying we upset as well.

      We were the only guests on the property. The owners live on the property but we’re not always there. Restaurant was closed for winter. We had to go elsewhere for dinner. We were very disappointed
