Beautiful house and garden with old world charm and great breakfast catered to our liking. Thanks Helena for making our stay enjoyable and it was lovely chatting to you and meeting some of your family too. Hope to be back for another relaxing stay. Sonia & Russel

Thank you S & R for your comments, however the pleasure was ours, as we were fascinated by the stories you related of your travels overseas. We hope you will visit us again, and we can catch up and share some more.

Choosing a place to stay the night is a bit of a lucky dip and when we chose Hathaway it was more luck than good management. We were travelling with a little poodle and needed a stopover a couple of hours out of Sydney and chose Hathaway because it looked clean and tidy and allowed us to have our poodle stay inside with us. Well what can I say except luck was on our side. What a comfortable, clean, well managed and welcoming B&B this turned out to be. It was across the road from one of the flashest Bowling Clubs I have ever been in where we were able to get a very quick, very nice and well priced evening meal while our little dog was safe and sound in the spacious 2 roomed unit which is the B&B just a minute away. The bed was beautifully dressed and very comfortable. The lounge area was just what we needed to relax in after a long day on the road. The location was great - just near a lovely area to walk the dog after being cooped up in the car all day and just a skip from the shops for a vital top up for the next day's travels. The breakfast was served inside the main house and was very very nice as was the hostess. Hathaway house is a very comfortable B&B deserving of full occupancy at all times as it is so clean, welcoming, well priced and well run. I highly recommend it and if in that vacinity again will definately book again - and again.

E, many thanks for bringing your friends to Hathaway and for your generous comments. Hope the Hunter Valley did not disappoint you, and you will return to Hathaway to further explore the vineyards. Perhaps, next visit we can offer you a signature dish to enjoy in the evening.

We needed somewhere just a couple of hours from Sydney and chose Hathaway B&B 'Rose Room' in Raymond Terrace. Helena's welcome was very warm, the grounds are a delight and kitchen/lounge are very comfortable and well appointed. The bedroom is spacious with all the facilities you could want, and the bathroom was fine.
And breakfast! Fresh fruit, cereals, poached eggs and bacon (with a little wilted spinach and goat's cheese!), toast, marmalade and plunger coffee. It set us up for the day.
We would thoroughly recommend Hathaway Cottage.

I found Helena and Victor very friendly hospitable helpful and the room spacious private and very comfortable. It is in a good location close to town but not busy. Great breakfasts. I would rate my stay highly and recommend to anyone.

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.
