My perfect experience with Tantarra started at the booking stage - Owner, Serena, is one of the loveliest people I have ever met - a gracious host and gentle soul. Later, I also discovered that Kim is also exactly the same.
On arrival there was no one there but was a charming letter addressed to me with instructions on how to locate my room etc. I stayed in Shanti. This room is so lovely. Cozy, comfortable and perfect for one (or would be great for a couple). My little dog and I loved the room.
The outdoor pool area complete with gorgeous day bed was heaven. I had planned to explore the Hunter Valley and surrounding region but the pool area was too tempting. Spent most afternoons poolside, book in hand, drink in the other, napping on the day bed with my dog.
Speaking of dogs -this is the most perfect B & B for a well-behaved pooch. All three rooms had dogs staying and once they all met they became fast friends and explored the very secure outdoor area together as the humans often met for a glass of wine at the end of the evening.
I can't recommend this place enough. It was relaxing, effortless, very pretty and really dog-friendly.
Can't wait to go back!
P.S. The pancakes are TO DIE FOR!!!!More
