We had been camping and needed a dry place to stay the night before catching the ferry in the morning.
I found this B&B online and booked it. We arrived and were met with a note on the door to call Mel on her cell and she would be right down. We called Mel and sure enough, within four minutes she was at the door. Mel showed us to our room and explained where everything was.
This house is spectacular. There are four ensuite bedrooms in the house and you have it to yourselves. The kitchen is yours to use at leisure.
When we arrived there was one other couple having wine on the deck and enjoying the afternoon.
When we saw how well equipped the kitchen was and that there was a bbq out back, we went to the grocery store and got supplies. We had planned on going out for dinner, but thought we could chef up something nice here.
We returned with groceries and set about having a nice cooked dinner at home. There was another couple who had arrived and were going out for dinner so we basically had the place to ourselves.
All the breakfast items were available for us to help ourselves to when we wanted.
We had to leave fairly early in the morning but we made sure we took full advantage of the kitchen and made breakfast before we left.
It would be nice to come again and spend a few days here enjoying the area.

Great large house, nice bathrooms, everything really clean - huge living room & kitchen with everything you could possibly need to make life easier - if you are looking for alternative to a hotel or motel - that's definitely a great option!

Spent a wonderful relaxing evening here. The rooms are very comfortable and very well equipped. Melissa is very kind and helpful. It is in a great location and easy walk into town for shops and restaurants. I enjoyed the spacious terraces where I could sit out and enjoy the beautiful weather. A great place to stop over when catching the ferry or to stay longer to enjoy Picton and the amazing Queen Charlotte sound. Try the mail boat trip

We dropped in from Wellington on our way south.
Melisa the landlady was quite hectic, because she was busy with her family, but still very friendly.
We had the entire compound for us alone, and loved it!
Especially the wood fire heating was lovely as well as the whole cleaness of the entire B&B..
Fish & Chips recommendation was great! ( Tnx on that one)
Bedroom slighly chilly,should have been heated one night in advance.
Would come again!

This lil place is well within walking distance of the central part of Picton. We were worried about it being out of town but no problem. Extremely newly renovated rooms are modern and very comfortable. There is a great kitchen with staples and you can create a good breaky from the ingredients provided (we had poached eggs). The host is immediately available upon arrival and was really friendly and accommodating. I made apple tea with some apples from the garden. All in all a great find in Picton and our choice again if we were to stay. Oh and they had an open fire too.
