What Our Customers Are Saying


Hi There,

My partner and I spent 2 nights at Hunter Haven in July 2009.

From the outset we were taken back by the great hospitality we received from Colette and Ken who welcomed us like family & even helped us recover from a grueling half marathon.

The high standard of this accommodation offers something really unique when combined with its hosts; people who are passionate about travel & knowledgeable on the great experiences the Hunter has to offer.

At Hunter Haven you’ll enjoy a well priced stay, with the right extra touches of hospitality that will leave you wanting to extend your visit.

You’ll see! By the way Colette – a big thanks for the wheat bag, we use it every time we finish a race.

If you want a place to relax take in the country air and hospitality, Hunter Haven is the place to be.

We first visited in July of 2009, our first visit to the B&B. The welcome was like walking into the home where I grew up, warm friendly as though I had known Colette and Ken for years. We had only conversed via email as it was a surprise for my partner. They kept the surprise for me and everything was perfect.

The spa is to die for. You don’t feel as though you are falling over other guests either. It is like a family setting. We all joined in and had a great time. If you would rather be left alone that is what you get, but if you want to mingle with other guests you have that option too.We are returning in October 2009 and again in March 2010. With the relaxed atmosphere it is great.

We were absolutely delighted when we checked into Hunter Haven – we have stayed at many B&Bs in Australia, as well as overseas, but the service and the hopsitality we received here surpassed any other experience we’ve had.

The location is fantastic and centrally located, the rooms are immaculate and very comfy…and the ‘bottomless’ coffees and ‘little treats’ from the hosts helped to make us feel special and ‘at home’.

Both Colette & Ken really know their stuff our stay was seamless and included all the right touch points. We’ll definitely be back!

We have experienced a wide range of accommodation on our travels from 2-5 stars.

Hunter Haven surpasses 5 stars when it comes to service, quality and style.

We feel like we’ve know Ken and Colette for years. They are always warm, friendly and welcoming.

The Jacuzzi is one of our favourite features, with a glass of wine and a movie, who could ask for more. Luxurious bath robes, delicious coffee, massage chair, scrumptious breakfast are among a few of our other favourites.

We have stayed twice, so needless to say, we will be back. Thank you both for your wonderful hospitality, keep up the great work.

Regards, Clair Beswick and Matthew Bulic – Sydney.



We had a great time, stayed two nights and although we couldn’t use the pool or sauna (it was too cold) I warmly recommend it; Colette and Ken are the loveliest couple, they cook a very yummy breakfast and they make you feel very welcome.

Hi Colette & Ken,

Thanks so much for the stay. Your house,grounds and facilities are better than any B&B we have stayed in before. You really couldn’t have done any more for us. We will pass your info on to anyone who is heading over.

Thanks again.

Dear Ken & Colette,

Just wanted to say how great it was staying with you. the service was excellent to say the least.

The tour of course was the highlight, but also the minor details such as letting us use your ipad,rifle through your DVD Collection,, uncovering the jacuzzi for us in the middle of winter, driving us to and from the station and taking us kangaroo spotting; you really made us feel at home, and the food was delicious! Thanks to you it was definitely a wekend to remember,

Lisa and Dee Ravenscroft.

 Hi Ken and Colette,

Just a quick note to thank you both for your hospitality. Neither of us had ever stayed at a B&B before and our experience with you was wonderful. We both had a very relaxing and enjoyable time, everything was great from conversation, accommodation, food and my smiley face cappuccino.

thank you again.
