Located in the heart of New Norfolk is The King's Own Inn.

A historic place to stay.

Built circa 1826, the inn retains many original features, including open fireplaces, ornate ceiling roses, polished timber floorboards and excellently proportioned rooms befitting a large inn of the era.

Both the grounds of the King's Own Inn and the building itself have been lovingly cared for and fitted out with period furniture by the current owners. They simply don't make furniture like this anymore and it is a joy to see such items cared for and loved.

A romantic place to sleep.

Guests are able to have breakfast served in the dining room on antique china and sleep in a wonderfully romantic bedroom which has had an en-suite bathroom added in a manner sympathetic to the past but with all the modern conveniences of today. A private entrance to the B n B suite is provided along with linen, towels and other comforts.

All the comforts of home.

The King's Own Inn is located walking distance to the town centre, the river and the Agrarian Kitchen eatery. It is a short drive to the Salmon Ponds and only about 20 minutes from MONA – The Museum of Old and New Art. It is also a convenient base from which to explore the Mt Field National Park. Richmond and Hobart are both approximately half an hour away by car.

If you are a fan of history and love exploring that side of Tasmania, then instead of just visiting Port Arthur or wandering around Battery Point, why not have a truly immersive experience and actually stay in a heritage building? To put it into an Australian perspective, Perth was founded in 1829, three years after the King's Own Inn was built! In terms of European settlement, it doesn't get much older than this in our part of the world.
