My husband booked this place during a surprise romantic getaway to the Hunter Valley and I fell in love with it!
Bronte Guest House is located in the beautiful, quaint and historical town of Morpeth. It is approx 30 mins from the Vineyards of the Hunter Valley and the same distance from Port Stephens.
It is basically an old shop (I believe it was the original Soul Pattison Chemist) that has been converted into a B&B. There are a number of rooms with a common lounge area. The rooms and ensuite bathrooms are reasonably sized. We found the decor in the room quite modern and very clean. There is a plasma television and DVD player in each room as well as a hair-dryer and shampoo/conditioner etc in the bathroom.
Downstairs there is a common kitchenette which stock basic items. There is also a small but FREE DVD collection.
I particularly loved this and couldnt decide what to see! In the lounge area, there were a number of recent magazines and newspapers.
The breakfast is served in the morning on the balcony which overlooks Morpeth. The view from this balcony was gorgeous and we LOVED the breakfast. It was freshly made and very tasty!
Finally, we found the staff to be really helpful and friendly.
I definately will come back to this place!!!!! A real gem!
PS. Be sure to try the woodfire pizza place down the road.
