We had a great time at Colin's loft. He was a very helpful and gracious host. We will definitely be booking again with Colin when we return.

This place is perfect for travellers who are solo or are couples. It's in a quiet street, and conveniently close to Newcastle CBD and the harbourside. Can engage with the host as much as you want but he will generally keep to himself. The room upstairs where you stay is spacious, with all the amenities and comforts for an enjoyable stay. The downstairs part has 2 pluses - an interesting art gallery and the owner's friendly dog who greets you. Great value and is recommended.

Special house, and clean room!

Interaction with guests

The room is private and well away from the downstairs gallery. I am available on request to help you with any queries and am happy to have as little or as much interaction as you feel necessary. An art opening showcasing a local prominent artist(s) is conducted every two weeks usually on a Friday from 6pm to 9pm. You are most welcome to join the gathering for free drinks and finger food if your stay coincides with the fun event.

About Colin

I enjoy art and also enjoy meeting new people. I am well travelled and know the needs of fellow travellers. I am easygoing and respectful of others.
