Definitely 10/10!

Wow what an amazing gem in Newcastle! In addition to being super affordable the rooms are gorgeous and staff like Richard go out of their way to give personal and friendly service. Breakfast is plentiful and good quality. Guests have the freedom to come and go as they please. Amazing tranquil setting and close to the major shopping centres and casino. No way I will ever stay anywhere else when visiting Newcastle.

Our stay in Arbor was brilliant and very peaceful. I can recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful outing. The room are very good and tidy. The only area of concern is breakfast. If they just add some variety on the breakfast things will be more than 100 percent. We had a fantastic time.

We booked in for a nite on 30 May 15. We were a bit apprehensive at first but when we check in we were amazed. Beautiful room - spotlessly clean room and bathroom. My only suggestion is a shower curtain as the water is all over place when u are done. Other than that we loved our short stay.I would recommend this place to anyone and will make use of the guest house again when in the area.

I stayed here on a quick tour of Newcastle.
Absolutely heart warming welcome and excellent service.

I was lucky to get a room here because most of my friends tried for booking earlier but it was always fully occupied.

I took a wooden cottage and ohhh glory!!! I was stunned by the good bed, well kept and arranged linen, beautifully smooth pillows and lush blanket. Beautifully simple interiors, very good heater, a mini fridge and tea/coffee kettle. All made me feel at home.
A nice sleep, early morning shower and beautifully tasting breakfast was all I needed more before my next long drive ahead. And I have to say this beautiful home away from home fulfilled all to perfect expectations.

A nice Lapa with a cozy pool in the background will be a good thing for summers and some spice added for relaxed evenings I am sure.

Overall, a very good stay in Newcastle.

Tip: Making early reservations would be helpful as this place tends to run out of rooms.

Room tip: Get the wooden cottages at the back. Silent and away from reception area. Good privacy.

Wonderful little gem in the Newcastle area. Friendly and helpful staff. Superb home-made meals. Spotlessly clean rooms and living areas. Conveniently situated. My first choice for accommodation in this little town.

Room tip: Ask for the 'safari suite' if you would prefer a more luxurious stay!
