This B/B is tucked away amongst tropical trees, Budda statues and private pool ,5 mins from Lake Macquarie Warners bay and 15 mins from Newcastle. Usually the host provides an abundant breakfast but was away this time giving the guests a $25 voucher to a well known cafe providing good quality food, which looked out onto the Lake. A peaceful...

We stayed 2 nights in the studio with our fur baby, the rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated. The Breakfast menu was brilliant and the food to die for! Very friendly owners, helpful and left us to ourselves to relax and do what we needed to do, it is close proximity to the shops and the ocean. Terrific area, I... More

We stayed here on Tuesday night. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful. The room was very cozy and spotlessly clean. This B&B allows dogs. Although we don't have a dog we enjoyed staying there and would recommend this B&B. Breaky was awesome. Cooked to perfection and loads of it. Breaky included in the price.

Well - I was incredibly lucky to find Tantarra B&B! I stayed for one night as I was travelling through with my dog, and it was absolutely perfect! The hosts were welcoming and friendly - and gave me plenty of space to relax and recharge after a long drive. The bed was super comfortable, the shower hot and good pressure.... More

The rooms were decorated beautifully and were spic and span. The breakfast was hearty. And the hosts were amazingly friendly and helpful. A good 20-minute walk from Warners Bay high street (which has some great restaurants).

My boyfriend and I stayed here last year with our husky ruby and we had an amazing time. I love the way the house is set out.

We had a lovely experience here. The lady was fantastic. The room was quite comfortable and with plenty of local eating options available. The breakfast provided as part of the rate was restaurant quality and couldn't ask for more. The whole place was nice and I look forward to going back
