“Better than home. My favourite B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2010

Ken & Colette are the most wonderful hosts. I felt like we had arrived at the home of friends even though we had just met. They welcomed us into their beautiful home and gave us first class treatment. The tastefuly decorated rooms are clean, spacious and ultra comfortable. The location was perfect for touring local wineries and enjoying an evening at one of the many fantastic restaurants. We enjoyed the pool in the afternoon and watching a movie in the spa in the evening. In the morning we had breakfast on the patio - beautifully presented and complete with cappuccino coffee. Delicious!!!

both Ken and Colette could not have made us feel more welcome in their beautiful home. With fresh Chuck eggs in the morning and top class accomodation, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Their hospitality had no boundaries, kindly offering lifts to and from stations/restauarants and helping us with our onward travels.
Amazing place and people - could not reccommend enough.

Arrived in Cessnock without a booking so we were very lucky to get the last vacancy at hunterhaven, we could not have found a better or more friendly place. Collete and Ken made us so welcome it was like home from home. It was first rate comfort and hospitality Ken even helped plan our trips for us and was a mind of useful information. Kath & Chris Old

We had a great time, stayed two nights and although we couldn't use the pool or the sauna(it was too cold) I warmly recommend it; Colette and Ken are the loveliest couple, they cook a very yummy breakfast and they make you feel very welcome.
