We started a 5-week visit to New Zealand with 4 nights at Bearsden B&B (Feb 2013). Originally we were supposed to be there a year ago, but a broken foot delayed our trip. Friends who we were due to travel with in NZ had reported that Bearsden was their fave of a similarly extended visit, and we are happy to repeat that endorsement. Margie and Ned do it right, from the warm greetings to the delish breakfasts, to smart advice on where to hike/walk, great restaurants in Arrowtown (quieter than QT), and an atmosphere of energizing tranquility. I even got to practice my guitar, and Margie had kindly recommended a local hairdresser so I didn't get too shaggy on our extended vacation abroad. The setting is lovely (just a few minutes outside Queenstown, but close enough to everything), the hot tub was a treat under the starry skies, the bed comfy, and more. We are happy to recommend Bearsden... we stayed at another 5 B&Bs in NZ, both South and North Island, and Bearsden was really a star in the bunch. Enjoy your visit!
