Just returned from a stay at Waring House, our room was great! Very quiet and relaxing. We decided to eat on site and were happy we did, the food was amazing. We spent the rest of the evening in the pub and enjoyed the live entertainment and chatting with the locals that had come in for a bite to eat.We would most certainly come back.

The first room we had was in the older section, and it was musty and outdated. It also was incredibly noisy, thanks to its proximity to a common room where people were playing cards. So we were moved into a newer building, only to find ourselves able to hear the couple in the next room having a conversation. So we had to a move a third time the same day! The staff was nice and apologetic and we ended up with a nice suite that was quiet … but we would never go back.

My wife and I spent the weekend at Waring House in Picton during July 2012. We booked a package that included a suite in the Heritage Inn building and all meals. The Heritage and Quaker buildings are the newest accommodations at Waring House and are very clean, spacious and comfortable. The food is exceptional with a nice variety available. Friday we ate in the Pub which features live entainment. We had fish and chips which was delicious. Saturday we ate in the dining room. Our meals were amazing. The quality and freshness of the food was apparent with each bite. We also toured a few of the local wineries which added to an excellent weekend get away.

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms or suites in the Quaker or Heritage buildings because they are new, spacious and...

Our overnight stay at the Waring House turned out to be a far cry from what our friends had told us to expect. But then again, they hadn't stayed there in over five years. Since then, a roundabout has been built in front of the main buildings, which severely decreases the bucolic atmosphere that the hotel's ads imply. Two new buildings, built to accommodate additional guests, look like modern apartment buildings just dropped on the property, even though they are sided with material that supposedly looks like the two small, original guest houses. The view from the front porch of the "second" guest house is dominated by a large lumberyard across the road feeding into the roundabout. Yuk. As for the interior, our room was musty and served by a noisy, barely effective window air conditioner. Our private porch, although overlooking a garden, was dirty and unkempt. Our "closet", which was merely a carve-out in the room with a curtain, had an iron but no ironing board. Our friends commented that our room was much nicer than theirs! As for the food, definitely mediocre. And not inexpensive Hard to believe a "cooking school" is part of the draw for this place. The chef needs to pay a lot more attention to what is served in the pub. All in all, we couldn't wait to leave.

We were at the Claramount for the day and were referred to the Waring House as a sister property for our overnight stay. We were given a great rate on a large well furnished suite. Dinner was really excellent. After an afternoon touring the wineries in the area we also has some local wine with dinner. The restaurant looks over a very pretty area with bird baths and feeders that provide entertainment with your meal. Breakfast was included as well and it included ordering off the regular breakfast menu instead of a continental style buffet.

Room Tip: You can never go wrong with a suite which included a large comfortable sitting area and balcony

Our recent trip to the Waring House, early July was indeed a memorable one, very unpleasant. Our accommodations were in the old building, which houses the pub, restaurant and kitchen. The room booked for our stay is on the second floor. On returning to our room, after dinner a large black bat flew at me. Immediately I called the front desk, and was told that they had had a problem with bats ( reception informed me that bats had been residing in the attic of this particular building) but thought they had solved the issue, afraid not. The room in which we were staying has a large crack under the door, making it very possible to have had an unexpected, and frightening guest, a bat enter the room. It was terrible enough to have a bat fly at me in the hallway, I do not want to imagine it coming at me in the small bedroom.! On speaking to the owners, they were quite nonchalant in respect to this incident, explaining that this is the country, and not unusual to have this occur. They never once asked if I had had any physical contact with the bat. Had I have had direct contact with the bat, I would have been advised to have precautionary vaccines in the event that the bat was carrying rabies as it would be difficult and costly to catch the particular bat for a lab analysis to determine if it were rabid, therefore vaccines are administered as a precaution when a person is scratched or bitten by one. Fortunately, this was not necessary. There is a bat issue in this particular building, hopefully it will be corrected, and therefore be free of bats.

Finally getting around to sending in my review of this place. My husband and I enjoyed an amazingly romantic weekend at the Waring House in Picton. After reading the reviews on here I had mixed feelings about staying but thought I'd at least call and check it out. The girl in reservations, Gloria I thihk her name was, was a real treat. Very polite and knowledgeable with a cute sense of humour when my husband took the other phone and started a 3 way call. We ended up booking a wine tour package and had the time of our lives. I just want to point out a few things that I really enjoyed.

1. Our room in the little house next door to the main inn was lovely, clean and very romantic as promised
2. The pub dinner was really good with great food, service and nice cold beer, Entertainment was good but maybe a bit too loud for my taste.
3. The 4-course dinner was a novel experience, our first and most definitely not our last. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and wine pairings. Thank you!
4. The garden was so beautiful and we have a number of photos to remember it by. I recommend bringing your camera.

We are coming to the county again in November for a friends weddings so are hoping to try their Countrylicious package Gloria told us about.

Give this place a try and try not to judge too quickly, read all of the reviews not just the negative. You won't regret it.
