Good location, street parking. Breakfast basket with homemade jam. Place is very dusty, not good if you have asthma.

If you like antiques and staying in the 1800's it is a good place to stay. Owner was very friendly, breakfast was good. Not to everyone's taste.

Historic comfortable accommodation in New Norfolk

Pros: The Old Colony Inn is one of a kind. One wonders what will happen to this business when the owners retire in a few years' time.
Cons: TV reception works well on some channels but not others. Narrow staircase to access breakfast room could be difficult for some travellers.
Location: Nineteenth century inn with modern comforts. Property has attractive garden and friendly resident cat. Off the main road but close to everything.
Not many places like this in Australia. A historic inn with only 4 rooms but with all the facilities that are needed for a comfortable stay. Very comfortable bed. Walking distance to town centre and dinner options. Good breakfast with excellent coffee.

Best choice of stay I’ve made

Pros: Good old hospitality.
Location: Close to town centre and river bank parklands.
The Inn exudes old world charm and this is backed up with old school, personal service and hospitality. Close to town centre and to the Derwent river bank views and walks. You won’t do better in New Norfolk.

Old Colony Inn

Very quaint establishment. Building is 200 years old and while the rooms reflect a bygone era they are clean and comfortable with updated bathrooms. Our host was friendly and professional and we enjoyed conversation with her. There was minor traffic noise as our room was closet to the road but really not a problem. The very reasonable tariff included a light but plentiful breakfast. Happy to recommend.

Lovely B&B

Lydia and James make you feel like part of the family. Rooms are comfortable and well provided, complimentary fresh fruit, Port and Sherry in every room. Breakfast was included during our stay. Dinner was reasonably priced and very tasty. Wine and Beers also well priced with a nice selection. Would definitely stay here again.
