I should have writtent his review a while ago, since it has been 10 months since we were there. But better late than never.
This is the first time i have written a review on tripadvisor, and i can't think of a more fitting B&B to write about.
We stayed at Bushline by accident really. We followed a small sign at a turn off until we came to this little retreat. At first we thought it was out of our price range (we had been staying in cheap hotels and capming grounds). Sue convinced us it was worth a little splurge. And she was right. Our 6 month old fell asleep early, and we were able to relax in the spa with a bottle of wine, and gaze up at the stars. it was so fantastic. Then Sue took us down to the Glow Worms for a little private showing, which was simply amazing.
The rooms were great, the house was great, the breakfast was awesome, the hospitality was first class, and by the time we left the next day we were dragging our heals, not wanting to leave really, and a littel sad to be saying goodbye to Sue.
This truly was one of our highlights of 2 weeks in New Zealand.
