Bluebush Estate
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Bluebush Estate is a wonderful place to stay when visiting the Hunter Valley wine district. It is close to all the main attractions and major wineries. The accommodation is like a home away from home. We booked two rooms, one for my wife and I, and one for some friends from Adelaide, and each room had a comfortable King size bed and ensuite bathroom and was air-conditioned and tastefully decorated. The view from the breakfast/dining room overlooked the vineyard as did the adjacent lounge room with gas fire that warmed the whole building. The breakfast was excellent and more than we expected with a great choice of cereal, fruit, yoghurt, breads (toaster available) and jams. For a small extra charge hot breakfast options were available, but we were more than satisfied with the standard breakfast included in the room charge. The lounge room was terrific and provided a wonderful homely and relaxing environment. This place is a gem and I can imagine for a large group celebrating a special event, it would be ideal. We would definitely come back again, next time we are in the Hunter Valley.

We had three nights in one of the Guest rooms. Plenty of space, cosy (inside) and pretty (inside and out). Very handy position for Lovedale and Pokolbin in particular, but nothing is far away. The continental breakfast is more than adequate with far more choices than you'd usually be given. Gluten-free diet well catered for, too.(Thanks, Julie - and for your friendly chats.)
Outside cooking facilities and all you need - plates, sauce, etc - if you want to self-cater.
We are happily recommending Bluebush to anyone who wants to know, and will certainly return for another visit. Very good value.

Room Tip: Ask the staff when booking which type of accommodation will suit you best, as there are choices.

Wow what a find Leonnie and Debbie very accommodating.Last minute decision to spend 4 nights in the Hunter Valley. Three couples and kids everyone happy. Chalet was recommended for the group and it was perfect, from space ( having littlies) to cleanliness and presentation. There was nothing that was not missed or thought of with supplies for the stay. The Grounds and views were spectacular. Thankz again for a memorable getaway.

We have just stayed 2 nights in the Blue Bush Estate (wish we could have stayed more), we were blown away with the fantastic view, quality room stay and service. Thanks Debbie & the friendly 'breakfast lady' (sorry, forgot to ask for your name). We were upgraded to 'Chalet' accommodation as one of the guests extended their stay in the Guest House. We would have been quite happy there as the rooms looked lovely. The upgrade was definitely a bonus - the backyard view was amazing - vineyards, duck pond, kangaroos hopping not far off, tennis court, BBQ area. The whole chalet smelt of lavender flowers which were placed in several spots. A simple but wonderful touch added to the already unforgetable stay. The continental breakfast that came with the room booking was excellent. Yes, I do agree, the website photos don't do the estate justice, I think new photos need to be taken again.

On a one night stopover, the girlfriend and I both found this place marvelous. I wish we could have stayed longer. We loved everything, from the excellent service offered by Debbie, the superb continental breakfast, and the fresh morning air as the fog lifted from the sweeping vineyards. 10/10.

A group of us stayed in the Lodge of this estate and it was ideal. Plenty of room to lounge around and send time together catching up in beautiful comfortable surrounds. The owners did little things to help make a stay even better which we really appreciated. Lovely! Thank you.
