Awfully hard to top this place. Nikki and Brent are wonderful hosts, and the rooms are huge and ludicrously clean, with great views of Picton and the sound. And when I say clean, I really mean it: the B&B is nine years old, but everything looks absolutely brand new, because the owners seem to take relentlessly great care of the...

We stayed there one night before we take the ferry from Picton to Wellington. We didn't really have time to spend there, but the little time spent there was very nice. Very welcoming owners. Since we had been staying in hotels, it was nice to stay in someone's home where it was very personal and warm. Though the breakfast time...

A warm welcome from hosts Nikki and Brent. Their B&B is situated a short walk from the township of Picton. It is warm and homely. The twin room we were allocated was well furnished, including a refrigerator, tea/coffee making facilities, TV/ DVD player, which were available to loan. The spacious bathroom was well appointed with a sunken bath and walk-in...

Thank you for taking the time to review our B&B. This is our first season with the Twin room and value your input about the lack of sockets. We will attend to this concern. We hope the rest of your time in NZ was an enjoyable one. Thanks again for staying with us. Regards to you both.

Unfortunately we only spent one night here (arriving late and having to leave early to catch the ferry the next morning). We had the large room downstairs -- it had a queen size bed, single bed and pull-out sofa. Beautiful room with large screen TV, fridge, coffee, tea etc. Small but nice bathroom was upstairs. Big terrace at front of...

The Sounds Vista B&B ist truely one of the best B&B we ever experienced on our trip. The B&B is located at the outskirt of the city core and up the hill, which makes the place very silent. From time to time there is a train running down to the wharf behind the house - but it is gone fast....

We only spent one night here but absolutely loved it! The views from the terrace are lovely and I have never seen such a clean room and bathroom. The amenities were excellent and the people running it bend over backwards to help. They even provided us with breakfast at 6.30 before our early ferry. I would definitely have liked to...
