On arrival, we were welcomed with a delicious devonshire tea (the scones were homemade by our host, Bev). Our bedroom was large with very comfortable furniture and plenty of wardrobe space, a separate sitting room and a full bathroom. We also had full use of the lounge and dining rooms with access to cd's, dvd's and tea making facilities. Breakfast in the dining room was a gourmet delight as Bev is an excellent cook. This B&B is truly a home away from home and our hosts, Bev & Ron, catered for our every need without being intrusive. A very immaculately kept home. The location is excellent with a fantastic surfing beach and access to the City via a ferry across the Hunter River - only about a 2 minute ride. Great value for money, we will definitely stay at this wonderful B&B when next in Newcastle.
