    A quick overnight stop, so didn't need much. Staff were all helpful and friendly, however The Villa's heyday may have passed... towels and sheets getting pretty thin and the bed cover in our room visibly dirty. Bathrooms were clean and water was hot though.

    This place is great. It's quiet but social. Old but charming. Hot showers, ok beds, great staff. Cheap. Nice to chill in the garden and look at the stars with a bottle of wine in tow. Great location though Picton is tiny anyway ☺
