Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I recently stayed at Undine Colonial Accommodation.
The home was wonderful, twice as big inside than it appeared outside.
Our Room was extremly comfortable and warm, our breakfasts were huge.
Our hosts were friendly without being over the top, and we were made to feel like we were invited guests not paying ones.
This is an original colonial home that has not been overly renovated and we were able to experience and feel the History.

The whole family spent a wonderful 4 days in Hobart, staying at the Undine Colonial Guest House, thanks to the owners, Trish and Rocco Di Carlo. Having never been to Tasmania before, Trish and Rocco took the time to explain and provide easy directions to many interesting sites around Hobart. Their suggestions on how to have the best family holiday were greatly valued and without them I doubt we would have had such a great time. The Guest House is a lovely old quaint building and the family room we stayed in has been beautifully decorated and was a good size for us and our two kids, aged 6 and 9. To top our stay off, Trish cooked the best breakfasts each morning and having a swimming pool on site was great for us and the kids to come back to after sightseeing and relax in the evening. Overall the service and accommodation was excellent.

Trish and Rocco are the best hosts. Beautiful cooked cakes in the lounge area along with tea and coffee. Warm and comfortable room. Great cooked breakfast and lots of choice. Full of local knowledge and suggestions for things to do. Would highly recommend.

Beware of this property as they may try to charge you extra after you check out. Overall, this resulted in an extremely negative experience.

I had booked a non-smoking king or queen room for 2 and was given a room with a queen bed and a single bed when checking in. This was fine by me. Besides being far from town, the room was ok.

However, after checking out, I received a very unpleasant surprise. The hotel contacted me to say that they had put an additional charge on my credit card for having an "extra person" and for "late check-out".

1. They claimed that there was an "extra person" even though only 2 of us had checked in as originally booked. They claimed that this was because I had used the single bed in the room as well. Well, we never did use the single bed in the room. Furthermore, I have never heard of anyone charging for using something provided in the room especially since we were not informed of anything beforehand. They accused us of having used it because they found it rumpled and having some hairs. As we did not use the bed, we did not notice this during our stay but the fact that they just went and charged us for an "extra person" without checking speaks volumes. Has anyone out there ever been charged for an "extra person" when you booked a room for 2 and had 2 people stay in it?

2. Secondly, they charged us a second amount for a "late check-out". The checkout time was 10am and we left a little bit after but definitely checked out of the room before 1030am. Again, I have never seen an accommodation charge for checking out less than 30 mins after the checkout time. And this was not a small amount either. Again, we were not informed of any such fee when we made the booking.

After some back and forth discussion, they decided to refund the "extra person" charge but still insisted on keeping the "late checkout" charge. I think their actions speak for themselves about their views vis-a-vis customer satisfaction and profit.

Tasmania as a whole was beautiful but I would advise staying somewhere else. Don't let your holiday be ruined by a bad experience such what happened to me.

Response from UndineHobart, Owner at Colonial Accommodation @ Undine
Responded 19 Sept 2007
Our Bed and Breakfast is quiet small 5 ensuited rooms. Our advertised Check in time is 3.00 pm and our check out time is 10.00 am. Our guests stayed in Jessica's room it has a king size bed (two kingsingles joined) and a third bed in an adjoining room. Our property is a non-smoking one so this request was easily accommodated. The guests requested the best price available and we were happy to accommodate offering a $70.00 saving on the 2 nights accommodation with full breakfast, complimentary port & chocolates in the room and home baked treats & endless tea & coffee and daily access to the hydrotherapy pool. On the guests Saturday Morning departure, our housekeeping staff knocked on the door at approx 10.25 am and asked when they would be leaving as they were waiting to clean the room. The guest replied soon. The guest left the room approximately 10 minutes later, and the housekeeping staff commenced cleaning the guest then came back into the room and reused the bathroom (no.2) before leaving again at 10.45am. Our housekeeping staff were unable to continue cleaning whilst the guest was in the bathroom. When our housekeeping staff completed the room inspection form, they advised us that the single bed had been slept in. We attempted to contact the guest via the phone number they had provided but as it was only an international phone number & we received no response. I then forwarded an email to this guest advising that as an extra guest had stayed and due to the late check out we would need be charging an extra fee. The guest then responded that no third person had stayed, but agreed that they had checked out of the room some time after our advertised check out time. We then charged the guest half the advertised late check out fee being $30.00 In our defence, it is common for more guests to stay in rooms than are booked in and we need to rely on our housekeeping staff to determine this at times. We do advertise the late check out fee, we are able to accommodate late check outs but they must be arranged in advance so we do not have housekeeping staff waiting on rooms to be vacated. We always try to treat our guests as one of the family, which is why we were more than happy to allow these guests to check in early at 11.45am . We did not charge for the use of our wireless broadband facility. I reheated the guests left over food on the Friday night, which is not normally done at a bed and breakfast which offers the guests no cooking facilities. I refilled the port jug for them on Friday evening at no extra charge. Before the guests arrival at their request I completed and forwarded a proposed intinerary on Tasmania, with recommendations on places to stay and visit, and booked a tour of Cadbury Chocolate Factory . Which was all evident in the comments left in our visitors book thanking us for our hospitality and an enjoyable stay. It is a shame that the review posted does not reflect these positive points, but only dwells on the fact they were charged a late fee because they did check out late!

We had a fantastic overnight stay- tea/coffee, cake, chocolates and port included. The beds were comfortable and the indoor swimming pool warm and inviting. Breakfast was like a family affair where everyone shared their experiences around Hobart. The hot cooked breakfast was value for money and highly recommended.

Undine B & B was probably our favorite place to stay during our 3 week trip to Australia. The room was spacious, well appointed and very clean. Patricia and Rocco were wonderful hosts and made sure all our needs were tended to. Patricia was kind enough to let me do a load of laundry, and she even folded it for me since we were out when it was done! Breakfasts were delicious … huge amounts of eggs, fruit, cereals, wonderful brewed coffee and delightful company. The absolute only negative I have about Undine is the internet connection … it was very sporadic. Other than that, we had a perfect stay and would recommend it without hesitation!

We (family of 5) stayed there for 3 days and Tricia and Rocco were fantastic and lovely hosts! the b&b is very welcoming, clean and just nice to stay in. Don´t miss out the breakfast as it is in the kitchen of Tricia and she can cook a delicious omlette :-)
We all loved it there and would recommend it to everybody who wants to stay in a small, but great b&b!

We stayed two nights here on a flying visit to Hobart, particularly with a visit to MONA in mind (MONA is within walking distance, but we did drive there).
The hosts Tricia and Rocco were very pleasant, we enjoyed their input into our stay, and enjoyed the breakfast time in the kitchen area. It is an embracing experience, you do sit at the table with the other guests as well. Excellent breakfast by the way, we did choose the full breakfast option. Apparently Tricia hand makes the available jams from local fruits, all very nice.
Our room was delightful and comfortable, the ensuite bathroom fully adequate for our requirements.
As well as breakfast, there is the availability of coffee or tea in the guest lounge room, and some lovely cake to help yourself to! (Was a chocolate cake on our stay).
The old building has a certain charm, although not entirely sound proofed and the floors react to people moving about. There are a few internal steps on the guest floor, as well as steps down to the breakfast and recreation area.
We really enjoyed our experience.
Thanks Tricia and Rocco.

What a lovely place, great atmosphere and very welcoming and cosy. Homemade cake with tea and coffee in the wonderful lounge. Our room was spot on and all the furnishings were just beautiful. Port and chocolates in the room comfortable bed and pillows and no traffic noise. The breakfast was amazing , also a heated swimming pool. I think what made this place so special was that it was so relaxing and the hosts were wonderful.
