“If only we could've stayed longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Helena's welcoming afternoon tea & bikkies really hit the spot after our arduous trip towing a car on a trailer from Glen Innes to Raymond Terrace via Thunderbolts Way. It was lovely that she took time out to sit with us & have a chat and make us feel so welcome. We spent the night in the beautifully decorated little Cottage which is totally self-contained and would be ideal for longer stays for those wishing to explore the area. Our breakfast was absolutely delicious and we definitely didn't need any further sustenance on the 3 hour drive back to our home in the NSW Southern Highlands. We'll certainly be recommending Hathaway B&B to all our friends & family ... a real home away from home.

We stayed at the Hathaway B&B during the Easter long weekend. We have two children so had use of the Cottage. This was amazing and our little girl referred to it immediately as our 'little house'. The beds were very comfortable, bathrooms clean and tidy and overall the place was charming with it's decorations and little welcoming touches.
However on top of this the breakfast definitely rates a mention. We had the corn fritters on one morning which were restaurant quality. Another morning we had mushrooms on toast which might not sound glamorous but were absolutely delicious! This is all in addition to already having cereal and fruit salad and a hot cross bun! We didn't need lunch!
The hosts at Hathaway are very warm and welcoming and very keen for a chat!

Good location whether travelling the Pacific Highway (5 mins); arriving/leaving Williamtown(Newcastle) airport (15 mins); or staying a while - Newcastle city (35 mins), histoic Morpeth (15 mins), the Hunter Valley wineries (40-50 mins) or Nelson Bay (40 mins). Extensively refurbished original area home - extensive gardens and very quiet location. Bedrooms in the main house (own bathroom but not ensuite) are well decorated, presented, equipped and clean. Separate self contained cottage available too. Great breakfasts. Great host.
