Feels like being in a family with privacy”

We arrived to be met by the friendly and helpful owner. Our family room was clean and well kitted with what we needed for our 1 night stay. The shared bathroom facilities was right across our bedroom door and there were ample facilities that even at full occupancy there was no waiting period to use the clean facilities. We were treated to a nice surprise with a hearty soup and bread at night which seems to be a usual. The included breakfast was a good start to the day with a special warm porridge, freshly brewed coffee, juice and even gluten free and dairy free options to compliment the freshly baked muffins and other cereals. Should we visit Picton in future, we will gladly stay there again.

Best in Picton”

Free parking space at the back of the lodge. Love Nicci's home-made breakfast porridge which she makes in some days. Other days is bread, cornflakes, cereal, milk, coffee, tea, hot choc, cookies. However my bed wasn't very comfortable as the foam mattress sinks down in the middle.

Nightmare !!!”

Before I book this place, I already mentioned in agoda that I will be check in late. However, My ferry has delayed. At the first moment I entered the lobby, the owner said that I SHOULD NOT LET YOU IN ! He said his wife has emailed me that they reject my stay. But I didn’t receive it at all. I just receive the booking confirmation from agoda. Ok fine. My booking through agoda is only nzd 28.80. But he want me to pay nzd 35 because I’m late !!! I was staying in 5 person mixed dorm. In their official website, this 5 person mixed dorm only nzd 32. Ok that’s fine too. After I make payment, he pointed on me said that is me insist want to stay here and told me that I cannot shower. That’s so funny. I paid so much money just for a bed? I rather to sleep on the car. Please avoid this place if you plan to check in late. Plus, the owner is so rude! I feel so sad about this place.
