Old Colony Inn has been a haven for us over the past few months. Lydia is the most wonderful host and a great chef. It is a must to have her cook your dinner while staying here. Breakfasts are equally as good! Nothing is too much trouble for Lydia, and James is the life of the party. Such a wonderful... More

Some of the rooms that form the ground floor area of this lovely old Inn are dated to convict construction in 1815 and others also convict built in 1835. There are artefacts from this time in Tasmanian history adorning the comfortable and warm dining area. Lydia is an exceptional cook and the Menu is varied, very appetising and generous and... More

We stayed for a night but would have loved to stay longer. Lydia cooked us a superb meal after we called saying we wouldn't get there until 8pm & mentioned we hadn't had dinner. The history of the buildings is preserved & complemented by the interior and the quirky furnishings. The antiques, crockery, photographs, historical accounts all add to a... More

This Inn provides excellent value accommodation in an authentic historic building that was convict built. We stayed on a weeknight in August in the Courtney Suite, situated at the rear of the building. The Inn is easily located just below the shopping area of the town. Montagu Street is a main access road but where the Inn is located is... More

Nicely painted up and new bathroom, but the cooked breakfast is no more. The side tables were very dusty in the bedroom, and the bed, although looking luxurious with polyester silk sheets, was so uncomfortable, neither of us got much sleep. I think we may have had the same bed as CarolY!! I aslo wondered if the sheets were clean... More

If you like ultra-contemporary, this probably isn't the place for you! But if (like me) you like a place with personality you will LOVE this place! We stayed 3 days and had a great time. The room was a good size and had everything we needed - a bit dangerous leaving a whole decanter of port - LOL! We still... More

This property is a fascinating place and well worth a night there if you love antiques,just to see the place. Lydia is a great hostess and cooks a mean typically Scottish breakfast of eggs, mushrooms, bacon, and sausage. Its an old building, but the rooms are well heated with a modern en-suite. No place to put makeup etc for a... More
