“Perfect for our family reunion”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The Lodge and the Cottage, being side by side, were an excellent accomodation option for our family group comprising 13 adults, 5 children and 2 infants. We especially enjoyed the close proximity to the tennis court and pool and for our private use, the billiards table. Airconditioning throughout and many rooms having private ensuites was a valuable bonus. The Lodge was extremely spacious and had a lovely ambience with wood panelled cathedral ceilings and expansive windows for light and views. The Cottage was equally as comfortable and exuded old world charm. Both dwellings were exceptionally well appointed for self-catering and elegantly decorated. The staff were friendly, courteous, hospitable and unobtrusive. Located in Lovedale, Bluebush Estate offered us both centrality and peacefulness. I would highly recommend Bluebush Estate as a luxurious Hunter Wine Country accommodation which can cater nicely for groups.

Room Tip: The Lodge, with five bedrooms and abundunt communal areas, is a great option for large families or g...

Stayed for 2 nights in the guest house and we would highly recommend this place to others! It is such good value! I was really impressed, considering the price.The service was great and the staff were incredibly friendly. The place was well furnished and cosy. Bedroom was a good size and was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast area is looking out onto vineyards, which is lovely. They served a good breakfast. The area is good as it's located near some vineyards and restaurants. It's a great place to stay and explore the Hunter Valley!

3 couples stayed in the Bluebush estate cottage. It has generous proportions with a huge living room enhanced by an open gas fire. The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean.

The lady on check in was lovely and advised that a buffet and cooked breakfast was available in the guest house the next day. The breakfast was well worth the extra few dollars and we left full and very happy.

All in all a super stay - highly recommended

Outstanding cottage, beautifully and tastefully appointed with real charm and country elegance. My hat goes off. Seriously. Large bedrooms, spotlessly clean, so comfortable, all facilities and service were impeccable. Outdoor areas also were perfect for dining, relaxing and private. Wonderful stay. Thanks so much.

We booked a mid-week trip that included a full day wine tour on wotif. Not a single criticism! Lovely, renovated, large & clean rooms. A quiet and yet central location. Extremely welcoming and helpful staff, who even called immediately when they noticed I'd left & item of clothing behind & organized same day postage.
I definitely recommend the restaurant which walking distance, 'mojo's' too.
We plan on returning!!

We initially booked the suite in the main house of this hideaway that is off the beaten track in the heart of the Hunter Valley Wine Country and due to overbooking they offered us the 10 person Lodge, seperate building on the property for the same price as the King room, so we had a full kitchen, pool room ,a bathroom each from the 4 in the Lodge and anyone of the 4 bedrooms that sleep up to ten people to choose from - a comfortable lounge area with all mod cons and our own private patio. Due to the inclement weather we did not swim, play tennis or jacuzzi on this visit. Breakfast was buffet style and included in the price. The owner recommended the Restaurant down the road which was top notch it was a pity we could not fully enjoy the very generous servings as we had totally pigged out all day while tasting wines in the local wineries. The owner was a lovely lady and very hospitable, nothing was too much trouble and her kindness and generosity stand out for us on this trip.WE plan to be back with a larger group to enjoy the wineries in Summer.
