Stephanie and Don provided us with a wonderful stop in Picton with our 2 year old son. They were welcoming and even offered to collect us from the train station which made our arrival completely hassle free. The house itself is quiet and a just a really lovely escape for people coming in from long flights and busy lives in...

We had a wonderful time there. The house is historic, beautiful, and clean! The owners are very friendly, although we are foreigners. Two little dogs and sheeps welcomed us, of course they don't bother guests! Calm and comfortable. Recommend!

Thank you so much for your really lovely review. Most of the reason we bought Sennen House is because we love meeting people from all around the world and learning a little bit about different countries and cultures. There is usually a welcoming party when guests turn up and the dogs and sheep always seem to be more popular than...

Stephanie and Don (and the two dogs) were very welcoming. The room was large and very comfortable. The spread for breakfast was great. Stephanie and Don went out of their way to look after us. Highly recommended

Arriving at this lovely home tells you that it is well cared for and that you will also be well cared for by the host/owners. Our room (I think it was the John Banks Room - or similar) was spacious and spotless. Everything you need is provided, even down to a ride in Don's car into the town for dinner...

Thank you so much. This is high praise indeed from two people that used to run the best B&B from their beautiful chateau on the South Island. You were both so kind, friendly and helpful and it was such a pleasure to meet you. Luckily as you said most people love to wake up at their leisure and help themselves...

This place has a historic background but the current owners are making new history themselves. From the moment we arrived they delivered a first class service and really couldn't have been more helpful. All the facilities you could hope for were provided (and some !!) and the rooms were both comfortable and functional. I really can't praise Stephanie and Don...

The Sennen House is a beautiful place to stay with fantastic hosts Stephanie and Don. The house is very close to the pier/downtown (15 min stroll). The rooms are spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. Stephanie and Don are exceptional hosts; they went above and beyond to meet my wife's dietary needs. I highly recommend this lovely accommodation. Thanks!

Everything about our two night stay at Sennen House was amazing.
