The breakfasts were great and Margie and Ned wonderful hosts.

Equidistant from Arrowtown & Queenstown, this is a superb place to stay. Stunning views of mountain, beautifully appointed bedroom/bathroom, lovely sitting room, outdoor seating, hot tub, fantastic breakfasts & delightful Labrador - what more could we have wanted?!

Bearsden B&B is a wonderful place to stay & is part way between Queenstown & Arrowtown, so you will need a car to get there. Our GPS (recently updated) struggled to find the start of Lower Shotover Road, so suggest you get a map rather than relying on technology. Situated down a country road with a superb view of Coronet... More

Margie and Ned were wonderful hosts, very welcoming and hospitable, were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some excellent advice for day trips and recommended very nice restaurants.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights on our honeymoon. Margie and Ned are amazing hosts. Margie cooks a gourmet breakfast daily, the property is beautiful, quiet, private, and well maintained, and the location (15 minutes drive from Queenstown) is perfect. I couldn't recommend the place more enthusiastically.

My three night stay at Bearsden was amazing. Since I was the only guest, Margie and Ned upgraded me to the best room free of charge, and I was even greeted with a wonderful cheese and wine plate upon arrival!

Margie and Ned made our honeymoon stay in Queenstown a great one. We arrived and Margie toured us around their beautiful home, and then let us know that family from home had coordinated with them to provide us bubbly and a locally-sourced cheese plate. Our family mentioned on our return that Margie was very accommodating and helpful with this request.... More
