Ken and Colette were great hosts,and live downstairs on site. We stayed for two nights in January, whilst touring Hunter Valley. Breakfast was a cooked 'Irish' and was enjoyed on the verandah. Continental was available as well. The pool is the best pool I've come across in a Bed and Breakfast. Plenty of loungers and a large covered shaded area... More

My husband & I stayed two nights at Ken & Colette's lovely B & B. Our room was spacious & very well appointed.We were made to feel very welcome and no request was too much trouble for our hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed Ken's local knowledge while on the Wine Tour & would definitely recommend this experience to others.

Me and girlfriend at the time(now fiancée-happy happy!) arrived quite late on Friday the 19th. However we had always had very good communication with Colette over the phone so we knew there wasn't going to be issues. As expected they gave us a very warm welcome at around 9pm. Colette was very kind, giving us a delicious bottle of red... More

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.

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
