Maria is one of those B&B owners who can’t quite believe that what they do is actually a job. "I love it with a passion!" she declares of her ‘business’ in Newcastle’s Junction suburb.....

.... This 1875 terrace house was the family home, but now bursts with the embodiment of that passion: forests of plants, cookies in jars, cakes on trays, rugs on floors and mounds of cushions in the bedrooms. At the heart of it all is the enormous kitchen where Maria struts her stuff and I will go to my grave regretting that I missed breakfast. Highlights include eight or nine (!) different types of muesli from as far away as Byron Bay and the Blue Mountains, one of them soaked overnight in apple juice and covered in berries. Other offerings include porridge with cinnamon apples, poached egg on lime spinach, poached pear in saffron. You can digest your food and the news in one of the sitting areas inside (wood-stoves, books, magazines and cable TV ensure you feel no rush to stand up again, '); or outside in the small central courtyard. Personally, I would choose the converted bath in the shady front garden. An excellent city B&B. Walking distance to beaches (superb surfing) and restaurants. 40 mins to Hunter Valley vineyards. Nature reserves, golfing nearby.
