My husband and I, plus our two dogs, stayed at Tantarra for two nights in the gorgeous Shambala room. From booking to checkout our hosts, Serena and Kim, went above and beyond to ensure we had a comfortable stay. The surroundings are tranquil and the breakfasts are amazing! Thank you so much for making us welcome in your beautiful home.

We stayed 3 nights in Lotus, the smaller room. It wasn't as small as we thought, perfect for 2 regular humans and a medium spoodle! Serena and Kim were perfect hosts, great balance of there when needed without always being there. Breakfast bruschetta was a great start to the day and Serena recommend a great nearby beach for dog walking...

My husband and I stayed at Tantarra for one night in November whilst en route to Brisbane. We had a lovely welcome from Serena, the owner, who made us feel completely at home and relaxed. We stayed in the Shambala room which was much bigger than I expected and was decorated with the most beautiful, unique wooden pieces of furniture...

Our stay there was comfortable and we were looked after very well. My boyfriend was not feeling well after the journey and our host offered to prepare him a special breakfast that was not on the menu. Our hosts were available, accommodating, and thoughtful. The Lotus room where we stayed is quite small but comfortable and the bathroom is modern....

Our stay at Tantarra was a pleasure from the first phone call to Serena enquiring about the premises. Her warm personality left us with no doubt that Tantarra was going to perfectly suit our needs to be somewhere close to the Newcastle Entertainment Centre - (as we were coming up to Newcastle to work at the Food & Wine Expo)...

With all the stress of moving interstate it was lovely to enjoy the peace of this B&B with Balinese decor. We stayed in the Shanti & Lotus rooms which adjoined a small lounge area.

We stayed only one night with our puppy Snuggles. We could not have felt more comfortable if we had been at home. Serena and Kim made us (and Snuggles of course) feel very welcome. The accommodation was spotless and breakfast was superb. We will definitely be back to stay. Jenny and Ron
