We enjoyed our stay here very much. Ian and Paula are excellent hosts and they are very helpful about places to go and where to eat. We had the Globetrotter room which is the smallest but perfectly adequate. There is a nice lounge for guests to use and over breakfast there is good conversation with Ian and other guests. The...

Gosh Lynn & Alan, we are quite humbled by your lovely review and are very appreciative that you took the time to post it on Trip Advisor. Now the good news is that the muffin picture can be taken with any muffin as a prop whenever you have that magical 'muffin moment.' Perhaps during the pub lunch at the end...

Charming hosts who are helpful and friendly. Lovely cottages (we had the smaller one with our two dogs, who were also made welcome). Comfortable night's sleep, close to central Picton and the marina with walks from the door. Recommended

The Gables in Picton is a B&B as a B&B should be: fantastic accomodation and lovely hosts. Paula and Ian will do everything to feel you at home in their romantic house. Also their funny dog makes you feel at home. When you leave you receive two muffins, to be eaten at a special "muffin-moment" afterwards of which recordings have...

We had a perfect stay here, huge bedroom overlooking Picton and 2 mins walk into town. Ian and Paula made us very welcome and can organize anything you want to do in the area. We walked the first section of the Queen Charlotte trail and we had a great day. Thanks for a lovely stay - hope we will be...

Thank you so much for that lovely review. It is always so very gratifying to have folk leave Picton, and indeed NZ, with good memories and having had a special holiday. We look forward to your return. Warm regards, Ian and Paula

If you are looking for something a little different this is definately worth considering. The hosts can't do enough for you and come with thier own unique approach....ask about the muffin club! Ian's advice on what to do in the area and beyond stood us in very good stead. The room was comfortable and spacious. A memorable stay.

My husband and I stayed here last year for part of our honeymoon and found it to be a really pleasant place. The owners even left us a small champagne bottle and chocolates to congratulate us on our marriage! The rooms are very homey and the owners are incredibly welcoming. We stayed later than planned the day we were leaving...

We stopped one night here, arriving by ferry and before going south. The hosts are very welcoming, and helped us with suggestions for dinner. We had the small cottage, and had a quiet night. Breakfast was already in the fridge, so we could help ourselves as soon as we woke up. It was very nice. The room was nice and...

We stayed only one night in The Gables after arriving on the evening ferry from Wellington before catching the train to Christchurch the next afternoon - would have been nice to have stayed longer.
