Very comfortable accommodation and friendly service. We stayed two nights, and had a good night sleep on both nights. The owners offered helpful suggestions to for places to visit while travelling too.

Our room was extremely spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. Breakfast which was cooked by our hosts was excellent. History of the building was also interesting to discover. Close to the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park.

The B&B is simply lovely. The colonial charm and coziness is wonderful. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The complimentary cake and hot beverages (and not forgetting the pott in the room), are added delight. We even received a complimentary upgrade to a larger room. Breakfast is good (if there is an option, I would recommend the...

After staying at a B&B that was smelly and old we were pleasantly surprised with Undine. Tricia and Rocco were so welcoming and provided cakes, chocolates and port as complimentary inclusions. The room was spacious, clean and had everything you could want. When we return to Hobart, this is where we will stay!

I was travelling alone and wary of the B&B experience, but was made to feel very welcome- including the welcoming text message. My room 'Joshua' was cosy and had the old world feeling I was after. My hosts gave me valuable advice about the best way to 'do' the MONA, and I enjoyed a quiet read and glass of complimentary...

Undine was a bit different to what I expected. Our room, small, furniture hodgepodge of styles, en suite basic and a corner tap basin next to the door were all pretty average to what other reviews left me to expect. The bedding was nice and attractive. It is near the main highway out of Hobart but extremely quiet with good...

Thank you for taking the time to review our B&B. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. Joshua’s room is our standard room and yes is considerably smaller than our other rooms. This room was the original Class Room in 1840 when Mrs Stevens ran Undine as a Seminary for Young Girls. But we have managed...

We stayed just the one night in the Joshua Room at the rear of the building. Tricia and Rocco were great hosts and we felt like they were old friends, despite just meeting them. Breakfast was enjoyable and our bedroom was small but perfectly comfortable (some of the other rooms are bigger and brighter, but probably attract a higher price)....

Colonial Accommodation @ Undine was our first B&B experience and it did not disappoint. A step back in time combined with modern comforts. The rooms are very warm and charming. Our beds were so comfortable. Located just off the main highway in a quiet corner of Rosetta makes for a very peaceful sleep. Rocco and Tricia are very friendly and...

Our second visit to Undine lived up to all our expectations and memories. Although it is 16 years since our first visit, Undine has lost none of the charm and value we remember. Being so close to MONA was a bonus as was Rocco's suggestion of visiting Gov't House for the open day (and meeting the Governor!). We couldn’t recommend...

“All rooms were quiet as the hotel is located at the end of a cul-de-sac. Some road noise might be heard from all suites at certain times.”

“The walls are quite thick and insulate traffic noise. Our room faced the garden so there was minimal traffic noise.”
