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.

Had the most amazing time. Quiet location but very close to main shopping and food precinct as well as beaches. The bed was so comfortable and the layout of the apartment was perfect. All of the decor was so lovely and luxurious. The generous little extras were wonderful and our room was very clean and had all the amenities you needed and more. The breakfast hamper was fantastic. Kym made the experience so easy from booking to checking out and made you feel extremely welcome. We wished we could have stayed longer. Cannot wait to revisit. Thanks for having us! Steve and Nicole

The Old Market Inn is just simply superb. I doubt you will find many other accommodations to rival this one. We stayed in the Norfolk Suite and it was perfect for our two night stay. The very high ceilings really add to the feeling of "large" for the space. The beautifully appointed furnishings really take it up a notch. The hosts have been incredibly thoughtful by basically providing everything you might wish for in a luxury suite of your own. The bed is extremely comfortable and the entertainment system is top of the line. They even include laundry facilities!
I highly recommend a stay at the Old Market Inn. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed one night at the Old Market Inn and we will definitely stay there again when we travel this route again. Kym is a delightful woman and she knows how to make people feel welcome and comfortable. The room we had was tastefully decorated and the bed was very good. Everything was gorgeous, and the breakfast hamper was just perfect. Highly recommended!!

The Old Market Inn is right at the top of the list for luxury accommodation. You would actually say luxury retreat given the soothing atmosphere and personal touches. We booked the downstairs Mason Suite for 2 nights and then added 2 more. Kym is a communicator, thoughtful and astute to guest needs. You simply couldn’t ask for more. A fabulous base to go off exploring this historic town, the coast and hinterland. Spoil yourself and make a booking. Linda & Terry

Attention to detail everything was perfect from the decor to the delicious breakfast hamper. The host Kym could not have been more welcoming and helpful. One of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in. Very close to walk to restaurants and cafes.

Exceeded my expectations with the attention to detail throughout the Mason Suite.
So luxe with a warm and relaxing ambience.
A beautiful bed & a welcoming sofa with comfy feather cushions.
The fresh local produce basket was a beautiful touch.
Kym and Steve are very warm, welcoming, generous and genuine hosts.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Old Market Inn in the beautiful Osmond Suite. Luxurious doesn't give it enough credit! From the little welcoming and parting gifts to the breakfast hamper, this place was amazing. The thing that struck us instantly was how bright and clean the room was. It is situated right in the heart of everything, easy walk to all restaurants and cafes. We absolutely loved our stay and would make this place our one and only choice from now on. Kym and Steve were lovely, friendly hosts and nothing was too difficult. We will definitely be back. We have only just got home and already miss the place!

Honestly we never experienced such a lovely, luxury accomodation. Well worth the price. It is spacious, clean, absolutely tastefully furnished. We slept very well in a wonderful bed. It's near to the center in a peaceful area. We enjoyed our stay very much and highly recommend this exceptional place.
