What a find!

Such a great place to spend the night (or preferably longer!) Walking distance to restaurants and waterfront. Quiet, private and very tastefully furnished. Warm and welcoming on a chilly winter's night. Very helpful and accommodating hosts

Private, cosy and very welcoming.

We stayed to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary at Restauranr Mason in town, and our last little trip away before our baby arrives. It was perfect, private and relaxing with all the amenities we needed. Owners Paul & Sue were wonderful, they catered for my husbands Coeliac disease with the breakfast without a problem. We only stayed one night but wish it was longer, we think we might have to come back next year.

Beautiful, private and spacious.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Very close to Newcastle itself. We caught a taxi out for tea to Derby St.? I think it's one of the most popular eating areas and it cost about $15.
My husband and 11 year old daughter stayed 1 night. I had never tried B and B's before but was sick of paying a fortune for a good hotel to find that they are always a small generic grey room. This experience has made me decide to never overlook B and B's in the future. The ambience was gorgeous, the spaciousness was a lovely change, loads of extras like magazines, books, games etc. The added bonus of all the little food extras, fruit platter, breakfast condiments, chocolates, cookies and especially the fresh baked bread-lovely surprise. The hosts were wonderful, not intrusive in any way but happy to chat to when we were leaving the next day. We will be back next time in Newcastle. Thank you for a lovely alternative to boring apartments and hotels.

Lovely property close to everything

Pros: All the personal touches provided to make our stay very welcome and comfortable.
Location: Lovely cafes and restaurants close by. Beautiful walks and just the ease of getting around made for an enjoyable stay.
We were met by our very welcoming hosts Paul and Sue on arrival. They were able to provide maps and good information on facilities in the area. We were shown our studio apartment which was an absolute delight. Very in keeping with the French theme. The breakfast supplied surpassed our expectations of a continental breakfast. Freshly baked bread, croissants, fresh fruit, a variety of cereals and toppings - more than we expected. A delightful and elegant and very comfortable apartment for short stays. Spotlessly clean, ample hot water and a good supply of toiletries - we wanted for nothing.

It Doesnt Get Much Better Than This

Pros: Ease of parking/quiet location/great hosts/everything provided
Cons: Let me stay forever!!
Location: Carrington is a quirky and friendly little corner of Newcastle. There are several eateries, coffee shops and pubs in a quaint little village.
We have stayed several times at Maison de May and always loved the style and the location. However when Sue and Paul took over 18 months ago things just got better. Their attention to detail, the welcoming touches, the delicious breakfast provided (including home made, warm bread) and beautiful linen are all amazing features! This is one of my favorite places to stay and I recommend it to all of my friends when in Newcastle. Love it love it love it!
