We stayed here mid-week and were impressed with the room, service and location. The continental breakfast was good. Bluebush is located in a quiet area of the Hunter Valley, however it is still very close to the all the wineries and restaurants.

Tranquil, relaxing, spacious, total comfort and thoroughly enjoyable. What a wonderful way to spend two days in the Hunter Valley. Having breakfast on the Sunday morning, and we were visited by maybe 20 kangaroos, two of them coming up onto the tennis court. Can't think of a more pleasant way to spend the morning. Bluebush Estate is on our "must... More

Hi Sharon wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us at Bluebush - the Hunter Valley is definitely the ideal location to catch up with friends and Lovedale area has so much to offer including kangaroos! Must be the green grass which is definitely lush due to the rain the Valley has been receiving. Look forward to welcoming you... More

Many thanks to Blue Bush Estate for allowing us to have a very successful family reunion. The accommodation was perfect as it allowed individual families to spend time together but also come together as a large group in the Lodge. There are very few places if any places that can provided for 40 people and have a private function. We... More

Beautiful B&B where there is everything you could wish for without spending a fortune. Furnished to a very high standard. Very friendly staff. The self service breakfast worked well and extra breakfast food could be ordered. We had dinner at Amanda's which was very close and equally a great choice.

Only negative was that there were no loungers around the pool, my wife tried to lay on a towel on the grass and was bitten by an ant... But only a minor thing really and one I am sure is... More

We travelled up to the Hunter Valley for a friends wedding, I had looked at a number of other places to stay (which i'm sure were nice) but this entire estate was booked as part of a group and beyond my control. When we arrived on the Thursday night, we entered 'The Lodge' where we were stopping and were greeted... More

We were a bit disappointed when we arrived to realise this isn't currently a working vineyard, but this was probably our fault for not researching properly! It is in a beautiful and quiet setting with stunning views. Our room and bathroom were enormous and really quite luxurious. Breakfast was also lovely - especially the banana muffins! We ate out on...

We came all the way from the US to the Hunter Valley for a wedding. The wedding party took over the entire estate for 3 days - as a place to stay and as a place to entertain prior to the wedding.
