Paterson is one of the historic towns of the Hunter Valley, 18 km north of Maitland. This small, picturesque village has a mountain backdrop by the Paterson River. Once a busy river port, Paterson today offers a relaxing break with cosy accommodation, such as the CBC Bed & Breakfast & Café, old country pubs and the perfect picnic spots.

Located in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia, the CBC Bed & Breakfast & Café was originally the Paterson Branch of the Commercial Banking Co. of Sydney. The elegant building has changed very little as we have aimed to keep its beauty, charm and historical elements, yet maintaining a warm welcoming and comfortable feel. The simply exquisite interior of the renovated CBC is heaven to anyone passionate about Australia's history, buildings & architecture.

By the way should you be visiting to celebrate a Wedding, an Anniversary or a Milestone event (as many do) we can provide the transport and transfer you to any venue. No need to spoil the passionate celebrations and leave the driving to us.


Our luxurious Hunter Valley country retreat awaits you, where you can step back in time and yet enjoy all the comforts of modern life. Surrounded by beautiful late 19th century architecture every detail is still intact including the high ornate ceilings and their unique pressed patterns so typical of that particular period.

CBC Bed & Breakfast & Café is in the heart of Paterson. Paterson is a small village, originally a farming town; it also served as a trading-post for small boats carrying timber and produce. The best way to explore the mid-19th century historic sites of Paterson is on foot.
