We arrived at Picton, tired and weary after travelling for a month, and we decided to rest for a night before exploring the South Island and we are so glad that we did, because we found this little gem of a boutique hotel.
We were greeted by Juliearna, the owner, and marvellous hostess. She showed us two rooms, both were absolutely gorgeous, and we decided to go with the bigger room, it was glorious-- the bed was to die for, the bed linen, the beautiful curtains and cushions and the BATH was sublime!!!! We had only had showers for a month and this was pure luxury for us.
I cannot put into words how wonderful this place was, we stayed for two nights and I wanted to stay for ever!!
Breakfast was delicious, everything you could want for and more. Juliearna arranged for us to go to the vineyards, which was also an incredible experience, and she did everything she could to make our stay memorable.
On our month of travels to Hong Kong to Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns etc, this has to have been the best place that we have stayed.
Thank you Juliearna, we will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Escape to Picton is a boutique hotel & restaurant in Picton, New Zealand. The hotel is enviably sited by the town’s waterfront, overlooking the marina. Within a stone’s throw are regular boating tours of the Marlborough Sounds, and connections to the famous Queen Charlotte walking track. A mere 20-minute drive separates us from the seemingly endless vineyards of the Wairau and Awatere valleys, and the remarkable wineries dotted among them. Much thought and effort has gone into creating accommodation befitting the astonishingly beautiful surrounds. Our three suites are as different from each other as they are equally comely, each suite featuring unique pieces of exquisite handmade furniture collected over many years. We consider that one’s living environment not only reflects, but also determines one’s state of mind. Taking this as our mantra, we’ve done everything in our power to make our three suites genuine havens for our guests. ... more less
