“Picton's Finest........................”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

You will be treated to excellent fresh cuisine by the host/chef Juliarna and her delightful staff. Our room was tastefully furnished with the decor in subtle calming tones.The bed linen fresh and crisp and the bed extremely comfortable. The hotel is ideal for ferry travelers as it is only 5 minutes to the port, and a perfect location to leave your car in the hotel car park and enjoy the Picton nightlife. For those wanting a touch of luxury then this hotel will not disappoint.

My boyfriend booked this hotel for my 30iest Bday. It was beautiful!
We stayed in the formal suite and I would recommend it for everyone that wants to treat someone special ;) That bath is so Amazing!
After our lovely dinner, my boyfriend proposed to me ;) we got some champagne from the staff and they were so, so amazing to us.
I loved everything about this place!

For our honeymoon my brother very kindly booked us into Escape to picton.
It was well beyond what the web site showed!!!
We stayed in the Modern Suite.
The lounge was decorated beautifully and was very clean and inviting. The fire is a great touch too!
The bedroom had a king sized bed which was not too hard and not too soft.
The 2 person shower and spa were awesome!! My husband who normally tosses and turns all night was asleep with in minutes of getting out of the spa!

We enjoyed our stay so much we are planning to return for my birthday later this year!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

I'd read and heard many mixed reviews about this place but we needed a place to overnite before heading out on the QUeen Charlotte track and, with no kids in tow, we thought we'd try it out. We arrived late afternoon and wandered around to the back door, where we were welcomed by Juliearna, the manager and owner. We registered and were shown upstairs to our room, which was an upgrade from the one we had booked. It was quite spectacular.....as a previous reviewer noted, something out of Versailles. We relaxed with a cup of tea and just took in the splendor. It was quite hard to believe we were in Picton.

The photos speak fro themselves but the room was extremely comfortable, well furnished and lovely to be in. The bathroom had a lovely shower and a nice big tub. It felt very luxurious. We didn't fancy a big dinner so popped round the corner for a quick bite before coming back for an early night. The bed was big and comfy.

We had breakfast out in the morning as we had an early start and then headed off. Juliearna and her staff were very helpful and welcoming. The place has an odd vibe...it's almost a bit out of place in its location. If it overlooked the sea with nice gardens, it would be incredible. Opposite the council car park in Picton, maybe not. It's certainly an interesting place to stay and the rooms do justify the price. For those into Louis XIV style, it's a must.
