Our room was quite lovely, spacious and very comfortable in all aspects. Breakfast in the Continental style was extremely well thought out and there was plenty of it. Port and Sherry in lovely decanters waiting for you if wanted. Hosts Lydia and James so friendly, Lydia joining us after we had dined in the dining room after a lovely meal.... More

I just took my 84 year old mum on a holiday to Tasmania. We stayed with Lydia and James and had a fantastic time. The owners made us so welcome and really looked after my mum. Our room had river glimpses and had all facilities we needed. It was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was included and there was plenty... More

We hadn't tried B&B's before, and this one was definitely jumping in at the deep end, the hosts were very friendly, the room was clean and well prepared the on sweet was well equipped, the owner had injured her shoulder so the breakfast was a Continental type and was lacking in nothing ! The room had complementary Sherry and Port,... More

This historic inn is crammed with treasures and junk. The host was very accommodating and helpful, recommending places to eat dinner. Breakfast supplies were perfectly adequate. Location good, short walk to eateries in CBD.

Good: This is the oldest building in New Norfolk, which has a museum on the lower level, & 3 suites on the upper level. All the furnishings are old world to match! There are some wonderful antiques, this is an amazing place with so much history. We have stayed in B&B’s all around the world, this will be our most... More

When we arrived we were amazed at the age of the building. It's quirky and quaint but the owner is a simply delightful person who goes out of her way to make every visitor fell special. Our suite was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was all we needed including the strawberries picked fresh by Lydia that day from her... More

First impression from outside was Old and Quaint but a bit tired (lots of cobwebs..). But, when shown to our room by the owner (Lydia) who was extremely obliging, we were very impressed with our "suite" (the Countney Suite) Quite large attractively furnished room with LCD tv and well equipped modern bathroom. Very comfy bed and a generous self serve... More

We overnighted at 5 places in Tasmania and this was our favourite! Firstly, Lydia Graham is an amazing person! At her age and with a broken collar bone, she was still able to check us in, show us around her amazing place and garden, where she grows her own vegetables! She also cooks beautiful meals and we were blown away... More

Had a one night stay here, Old Colony Inn is an older building with courtyard close to the town centre of New Norfolk. Lydia, the host, was very welcoming and chatty, and showed us around. There are a lot of antiques and curiosities around the place, which are interesting to look at and look to be dated throughout Australian history.... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we booked in to this quaint, unique B & B for 3 nights in January.On arrival we were immediately surrounded by a plethora of antiques, historical documents, and items sourced from convicts. Quite different from most B & B's in Australia. Our room was quiet and comfortable with many nice touches, including the free sherry and... More
