Rosie's Inn
Ranked #2 of 12 New Norfolk B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 April 2017 via mobile

How wonderful could Rosie's or their hosts be! Having first looked to stay in Hobart over Easter and not able to, we found Rosie's... 20minutes at most away from Hobart cbd and the most amazing trip back in time and culture possible in 'real' Tasmanian style. Too too good, when other than magnificent scenery and a gateway to everywhere else, New Norfolk has very little else to offer...
Rosie's entirely reminds you why and how Tasmanian development and new Norfolk has been, was, might be and must again. How it was a bit ruined by development and what it still has to offer as the gateway into the rest from Hobart and into it as an out of Hobart town from the north.
Quite simply... real Tasmanian authenticity and hospitality at its most incrediblest and fullest. Also as they don't need to do!
This is a family who originated and made Rosie's and have the fullest story of new Norfolk to offer with it. It is on every wall, on every personal nook and cranny of the place... and oozes from your hosts who revel in talking to you, finding out about you and welcoming you into their lives and history and place whilst helping you onwards...

As a northern hemisphere 70s person I grew up with an Australian show called the Sullivan's, and this is what I felt like I had stepped into... But it had too too many similarities to my Mum and my now dead Great Aunties houses in Scotland too.. Just amazing and anyone wanting a real vintage time trawl or experience in time must simply get to Rosie's. Thankfully at this far flung place of the world however the real vintage trawlers might leave it alone to remain a brilliant marvellous treasure of perfection that it is... while serious minded respect her dutifully...
Rosie's is a true and authentic gem.
She offers breakfast... everything made from local produce and amazing....and in true preservation all garden grown and preserved style... with explanations behind....don't be put off... it's just the same way my 80 year old aunt made hers.. and too too good, because it is all garden grown! All of this in a Chinz dining room full of lace and silver in cabinets which grandchildren are groomed into polishing for her in holidays...and just in the same way as my aunties only wanted to know brown or white toast, tea or coffee, so do they at Rosie's.

There is an incredible sense of wonderful here. Please don't spoil it. But please spoil the people who make it with the right kind of visit and appreciation. They are gems.

Lovely place for a overnight or a weekend stay. Owners very lovely and when had breakfast we were asking about the roses when they were in bloom and she came out with ipad showing when they were! Absolutely beautiful pics! Sad we were at the end. The shower was good and the bed comfortable.

This B and B is very quant. It is very easy to find and has off street parking. The owners are nice and polite. The bed was very comfortable however the pipes shake and rattle every time someone uses the bathroom. The fridge is very loud and the kettle is from 1980 and needs a safety upgrade. I did not have the free breakfasts as it only offered toast and fruit.

Stayed for 2 nights in Room 6, March 2017. Spacious room with separate bedroom and sitting area. Small TV, fridge and tea and coffee facilities. Self serve fresh milk available from communal kitchen area. Large communal lounge with large TV available. Good off street parking, some undercover. Close to town centre, just a short walk across the bridge. Wonderful continental breakfast included, great service with fresh tea, coffee and toast made for you. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Decor is very 'floral'. Would stay again.

We had a great 1 night stay at Rosie's Inn New Norfolk.
Lovely clean B & B clean roomy rooms. Surrounded by a lovely garden roses galore.
Comfy lounge to sit and watch Australian open and enjoy a complimentary sherry.
Wish we had more time to stay longer.
Thank you.
