I'm sorry to sound like every other review of the Bearsden B&B, but I have to agree with their comments. My wife and I have never had a better time at a B&B. You simply won't find a nicer couple than Margie and Ned running a B&B (not to mention their sweetheart of a lab, Bruno). Margie's breakfasts (you choose the night before from among three choices - the french toast was our favorite) are fabulous and filling. We got lucky and were the only guests at the B&B for our three nights, so we got extra attention from Margie and Ned. We even took a walk with Bruno.
You should know that the Bearsden is about 15 minutes outside the center of Queenstown, but that only puts you closer to the nice shops and restaurants of Arrowtown, an old gold-mining settlement, where we ate twice. Looking out of your room (or when soaking in their hot tub) you see Coronet Peak in the distance and horses grazing in the nearby fields. What a view and a lot quieter than the hubbub of Queenstown. Margie's restaurant recommendations were on the mark. Do not hesitate to choose the Bearsden. You will, like us, be sad to leave.
