Randomly stumbled upon this hotel through some online search while we were driving towards Picton. Really glad that we did. The place had awesome view, like from a painting, right outside the window. And since we are in a bay different from the ferry landing, everything is quiet and peaceful.
Homely decorations with clean and tidy amenities. Love the heating blanket during the cold winter nights. Environmentally sound facility where they specifically note that you should only put the towels on the ground if you want them replaced, so they can save precious water on washing. It's these little touches that made the stay more interesting.
Internet access was cheap and blazing fast, but you should stay away from the computer and enjoy the picturesque views. Tons of things to do that are near by, and you can take a 5~10 minute walk to the wharf down the road and have a great dinner there.
Awesomely friendly staff, we were even offered a special deal if we stayed longer (thanks Rachael !! ), but too bad we had to get on the road the next day.
Overall an excellent place for a nice and quiet getaway.
