We stayed in the 5 room guest house with the regular B&B rooms. Rooms were reasonable in size and well appointed. Ensuite was a bit small. Air/con was very good. The only problem was that we found that the walls in this building were rather thin. In the night we could hear adjacent guests (and I'm sure that they could...

One room has an ensuite and the second bathroom had a large bath. All had comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Well equipped kitchen and utensils. Just bring your own food,...

Had an amazing time at Bluebush Estate! Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and clean facilities! Definitely well priced as well which is a bonus. We are a younger couple, and were still treated with courtesy and respect at all times. Would recommend to anyone.

We recently stayed at Bluebush Estate as a large extended family in the Chalet. The house was very comfortable, the rooms were very comfy and each had their own bathroom. A lovely outlook to the Hunter with kangaroo's jumping by. Enjoyed breakfast outside on the BBQ. Everything we needed was in the house. Really great stay in the Hunter for...

This place is a hidden world of excellence. We stayed here last winter & everything was perfect from our room, the staff, the location. We will definitely be coming back here. Lovedale is so close to all the wonderful wineries of the Hunter Valley but still only 2 hours drive from Sydney.

On arrival I was met by Linda who showed me our rooms and the general layout of the house. We stayed in the guesthouse which has five bedrooms, all with their own en-suites and beautifully decorated. The whole room,...
