The Bronte Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 4 Morpeth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 26, 2012

My husband and I wanted to spend our anniversary weekend in the Hunter and chose to stay in the gorgeous township of Morpeth. Bronte guest house just added to a wonderful, relaxing time away. The hospitality was perfect, the room very private and comfortable (especially the bed) and had a lovely outlook to the blooming jacaranda tree in the courtyard. A very generous and delicious breakfast was served out on the balcony which overlooked the main (quiet) street of Morpeth. We were shown the room that received the not so nice review earlier. The room was bright, clean, a good size and had a lovely updated bathroom - couldn't understand why anyone would complain about it. I would have happily stayed in that room as well. The guesthouse was full of character which fitted with the ambience of our weekend. We had dinner at the Royal River Inn which offered a lovely 3 course menu at a very reasonable price. So relaxing.....

Lisa made it a wonderful experience from the beginning. She allowed us to inspect the rooms and all were spacious and beautifully decorated. We chose the Edward Close room because of it's view to a Jacaranda in full blossom.

Lovely flowers also in the room and we indulged in the complimentary chocolates and port. A terrific sleep on the King size bed.

Fantastic ensuite with large shower.

All completed by one of the best breakfasts I have ever had on the delightful covered balcony.

A very special weekend and looking forward to going back.

I just spend the weekend at the Bronte guesthouse and had a great time. It is an excellent location right on the main street of Morpeth. Lisa is lovely and so welcoming and I had a great breakfast on the balcony. My room was spacious and well maintained and the bed was very comfortable. I would recomend the Bronte to anyone visiting Morpeth.

What wonderful hosts Lisa & Nigel are! 3 days, 2 nights & 5 friends had the most wonderful B&B experience in this beautiful guesthouse along with other special events planned for us, thank you Lisa. The rooms were extremely clean & comfortable with a mix of old world & modern touches. Breakfast on the verandah overlooking Morpeth and the flood plains was so relaxing & enjoyable cooked by Nigel perfectly along with the exceptional service. The personal touches of chocolates in your room, a robe for each guest for comfort along with tea & coffee facilities and a glass of port in either of the two down stairs sitting rooms was a relaxing experience at the end of the day. Everything has been thought of in this guesthouse for your stay. We will be telling other acquaintances about our weekend to remember. Definitely will be back.

This was my first experience with a B&B as I had never really fancied the whole lacy, feminine, teddy bear type rooms as seems to be usual with B&B's. Brontes guesthouse was such a wonderful surprise. The decor was modern yet elegant, very clean and comfortable. The service from Lisa was exceptional with her upgrading us to a king size room . The room was called the soul patterson room and I had read a negative review about this room. So when we arrived Lisa told us to look at both rooms and choose which one we would like to stay in. We chose the Soul Patterson room. It was lovely. Bed extremely comfortable, bathroom immaculate, decor welcoming. It has all the amenities and some chocolates too. :) Breakfast served on the balcony was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Bronte guesthouse and Lisa was always ready to help and knew lots of local information without being intrusive to our privacy. Thank you.

This mansion of a bygone era has six rooms with ensuites. The Hiunter room where we stayed had a balcony overlooking Morpeth and the flood plain across the river. Room was comfortable and bed very comfortable. Downstairs is two sitting areas with period furniture and books and DVDs to choose from. Breakfast was on a balcony overlooking the countryside and my egges are the best I have had in a long long time

My fiance and I spent three nights at the Bronte Guesthouse, and it was one of the highlights of our holiday. We had the Garden Suite, which was large and roomy, with a very comfortable King bed, ensuite, couch, ensuite and even a small area in which to store clothes and get dressed!

Your usual comfortable amenities: TV, DVD player, fridge, kettle, with a few chocolates (always nice).

The midweek rate for three nights was very reasonable at $420, including delicious two course breakfast on the front verandah. Would be pricier on weekends, but that's the Hunter Valley.

Absolutely no problems with noise, as our room was at the back of the house.

My only pointer would be that Morpeth is approximately 45 minutes drive from any wineries, so that should be taken into account. But the restaurants and facilities in Morpeth were perfect, great steaks and beer brewed onsite at the Commercial Hotel!

Room Tip: The Garden Suite was large, lots of natural light, and at the back of the building so very little ro...
