“Homely comfortable B & B”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Alison & Geoff made us most welcome in their interesting home. Ideal place to stay if you have just got off the Interislander. (One night was not enough to enjoy their company and the scenery around Picton).

We stayed with Alison and Geoff at the beginning and end of attempting and completing the Queen Charlotte Walk. We had a lovely comfortable room within easy walking distance of the town of Picton where Alison and Geoff were happy to recommend eating houses. They also told us of activities in the area that would interest us. Just watching the activity at the marina was so relaxing...

I spent one night on Good Friday at Retreat Inn on my way to Nelson. Hosts Geoff and Alison were very friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do and see in and around Picton. Alison even called up a restaurant to see if it was open on Good Friday. Room was spacious, very clean and quiet. After I got back from exploring the town in the evening, I sat with them over coffee and had a wonderful chat. Breakfast was well laid out and excellent. Geoff and Alison make me feel as if I was part of the family throughout my stay. I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it to anyone considering B&B in Picton.

Thank you for your recommendation, and photo. We were happy to be able to help with information on eating places and what all there is to do in and around this beautiful area. And the evening 'chat over coffee' was an added bonus. Thats what life's about!

The Retreat Guest House is a lovely comfortable place to stay. Bedroom excellent backing onto bush/creek. Seems as if you are surrounded by countryside yet walkable to town and restaurants. Hosts v. friendly and helpful with local activities and excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay if wanting something a little more personal than a motel.

We stayed here in February for two nights and it was a really pleasant stay.We were made to feel very much at home and nothing was too much trouble. Alison and Geoff
were very helpful and it felt like we were leaving old friends when we left.
Another review mentioned about no TV, if the weather is not so good there is
always the chance you may meet a Dutch pop star there-we did!
