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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Enjoyed the stay, historical building, old world charm in New Norfolk. BUT not wheel chair friendly, parking in the street on a steep hill, challenging access. Host was accommodating & friendly, cooked a nice breakfast for a person with type 2 diabetes.

I stayed here for one night whilst visiting my dad at a local nursing home. The room was beautiful and clean with everything I needed. Bed was super comfortable and I was made to feel very welcome. The new owners were friendly and very accommodating and the Old Colony Inn will be my first preference for future visits.

Stopped in here while cycling the Tassie Trail. The new owners are incredibly hospitable and the rooms are charming. But the real show stopper was the breakfast. Vegan and vegetarians are very well catered for with coconut yoghurt, stewed plums and granola, sourdough toast with spread, plus home make beans with salad and a mountain of avocado.

A very quaint and very old inn with beaut rooms furnished with period and antique style furnishings. Rooms are spacious and moderately quiet with a little passing traffic. The antiques collection is not for sale but well worth the look with some very interesting pieces. Owners, Lydia and James have a very appealing and comforting charm.

We stayed two wonderful nights at the Inn, and Lydia was a perfect host in this heritage property. Parking is on the street but just a short walk to the rooms on a level above the dining room and display area/museum. The room was lovely, with all amenities thoughtfully provided and a squeaking floor. However the gem here is the collection of artefacts, crockery etc that have been accumulated over many years. Don't miss the huge dolls' house! And they love to receive direct bookings.

Last minute booking and Lydia was very kind. A very old fashioned, Old style decor inn but the service was lovely from Lydia and included breakfast. Easy walk into town to eat dinner at the Shanghai Chinese - recommended by Lydia. Lovely short walk down to the Derwent river and a beautiful early morning walk along the river amongst majestic old trees.

But it is interesting and fun. Our room was big enough and the bed was excellent. We had to leave early so breakfast was supplied to our room and it was very comprehensive and more than we could eat. The bathroom could do with a shelf or two , and some hooks. This place is certainly different and is fine for a night.

For a one stay, as this was a one night visit to Hobart we chose the Old Colony Inn, and it was a good choice. As others have stated, the hosts are an asset to this establishment, and it's like stepping back in time, or staying in some of the small village inns in the UK, we loved it and we will return.

I recently staid over night at the Old Colonial Mill in New Norfolk Tasmania. What a wonderful surprise! Spotlessly clean, excellent room and service. Only problem was I couldn't stay longer! So much history and character. I will definitely go back first chance I get.
