What a wonderful home-away-from-home to be! A lovely location with a most beautiful secluded "secret garden". Breakfast is beautifully presented and very good. The owners give their guests a warm welcome and make them feel at home. We stayed in a room on the ground floor opening out to the magnificient garden. The room is ensuite and has everything you...

We chose this place as base for a one day walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. Alison and Geoff made it a most pleasurable one. They own a well maintained home in a secluded spot of Picton, still in walking distance to the centre of town. But as we were chatting with these friendly hosts while enjoying a flawless breakfast,... More

Alison & Geoff made us most welcome in their interesting home. Ideal place to stay if you have just got off the Interislander. (One night was not enough to enjoy their company and the scenery around Picton).

We stayed with Alison and Geoff at the beginning and end of attempting and completing the Queen Charlotte Walk. We had a lovely comfortable room within easy walking distance of the town of Picton where Alison and Geoff were happy to recommend eating houses. They also told us of activities in the area that would interest us. Just watching the... More

I spent one night on Good Friday at Retreat Inn on my way to Nelson. Hosts Geoff and Alison were very friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do and see in and around Picton. Alison even called up a restaurant to see if it was open on Good Friday. Room was spacious, very clean and quiet. After I... More

Thank you for your recommendation, and photo. We were happy to be able to help with information on eating places and what all there is to do in and around this beautiful area. And the evening 'chat over coffee' was an added bonus. Thats what life's about! Alison & Geoff More

The Retreat Guest House is a lovely comfortable place to stay. Bedroom excellent backing onto bush/creek. Seems as if you are surrounded by countryside yet walkable to town and restaurants. Hosts v. friendly and helpful with local activities and excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay if wanting something a little more personal than a motel.
