While traveling on the South Island of NZ a stay at the Bearsden should not be missed. Nestled between Arrowtown and Queenstown the two most essential towns to visit while on holiday. Providing quick trips to both towns, the airport, vineyards, and ski slopes. This in our opinion lived up to the TA rating as the region's top notch B&B.... More

We had a stellar experience at Bearsden. The B&B is well set up with a lovely guest lounge, stunning views, and delicious hot breakfast. Margie and Ned know the area very well, and directed us to amazing hikes and wonderful restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will definitely stay there again when we return to the Queenstown area!

We spent two nights with Bearsden. Margie, the host, is very nice and helpful. You will have a lovely house with a large garden, a great view and cosy room, feels like at home. Margie is also good at cooking. Breakfast is delicious. We definitely recommend Bearsden to all my friends.

Having stayed for 4 nights at Bearsden in early August this year, we understand why the reviews for this place are so good. The hosts, Margie and Ned, thought of everything to make our stay in this amazing place as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We could not speak more highly of this B&B or Margie and Ned as hosts.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our five nights at Bearsden. Margie was a superb host making us feel very welcome, and breakfast was always a delight. The place is warm and elegant, and the spa was heavenly after a day of skiing. Bearsden is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown yet convenient to ski fields and Arrowtown. Overall we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March as part of a tour of NZ. Excellent location away from the congestion of Queenstown, but handy for the tasty places to eat and shop in Arrowtown. Comfortable room overlooking the garden and the mountains beyond. Bedroom rather small but a large sitting room is available for guests to use. Breakfast in... More

We visited Bearsden B&B for a mini-break from Southland, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The whole B&B is warm, elegant and beautifully finished. We had the outdoor spa, lounge, kitchen/dining, and roaring fire all to ourselves. Our room was lovely and cosy warm, the breakfast was one of the best we've had, the surroundings were... More
