It was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast so we were a bit nervous at first. However, it turned out to be a great stay. Ken and Colette are friendly and welcoming hosts that will go out of their way to attend to your needs. Probably the only thing that I could pick at would be the... More

We stayed two nights at this B&B and I have to say we were disappointed. Arrival day was 35 degrees - we phoned about 20 minutes before arrival thinking that they might put on the air con for us so the room would be cool beforehand. No, this didn't happen. Not only that, but we found that the air con... More

These guests made it obvious they did not want to stay at our B&B from the start. His brusque and kurt manner on the phone, just 20minutes before arrival warned us that we were not the location they wanted to be. Throughout their stay they continued to be the most difficult customers we have had to deal with, and we... More

We enjoyed a two day experience at Ken and Colette's home. Our room was spacious and bed comfortable. As Colette was incapacitated Ken did the cooking and proved adept in the kitchen. We enjoyed a nice relaxed breakfast on the verandah. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating and Ken's tour of the wineries and chocolate shop was really worthwhile. Ken... More

If you've read other reviews, then you hear a lot about Collette and Ken and with good reason. We were very warmly welcomed by our hosts, who then had some urgent matters to attend to and left us basically with the 'run of the house' until they returned after about half an hour. That's trust! After we settled in, we... More

My Fiancé and I stayed at the B&B while looking for wedding locations in the Hunter Valley. Ken was very helpful in suggesting places to look at which we really appreciated. Ken and Collette are a lovely couple and have very good local knowledge on where to go and where to eat. The breakfast provided was great and it was... More

This B&B is great. The hosts Ken & Colette are lovely and very hospitable. I would recommend this place. This is my 2nd time here. Its a lovely open plan residence with plenty of space. I went with my girlfriends on both occasions and had the home to ourselves. However, if there are other people staying (strangers) you can retreat... More

Stayed for one night during the June bank holiday weekend, and couldn't have had a better experience. Colette was great to deal with prior to our arrival, and very accommodating to the fact that we wanted to arrive early and booked a winery tour with Ken. Both Ken and Colette were lovely throughout the stay, incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and... More

We spent a long weekend at Hunter Heaven with some friends. We choose B&B for budget reason, so we could not expect Hilton 5 stars service!! We were welcomed by the host couple Colette and Ken, oviestly at first was a little awkward because we didn't know each other.. but suddenly we bond so well that we felt like home!... More
