We stayed at Escape to Picton for 3 nights in Feb 2016. It is perfectly located around the corner (200-300 mtrs approx) from a hotel and other cafes - meaning we were much less likely to be disturbed by outside noises. It is across the road from the marina and there are views of the harbour from the windows. The... More

Stayed two nights in the Modern Suite as we were also looking to buy a launch. Picton is truly humming and so was this little boutique hotel. We nearly missed out on dinner but were fitted in as we were staying. Place was packed. There was a hens night there as well outside which started fine but soon got loud... More

Wow loved everything to the tiny details, glass of wine on checkin and the we had a small sweet platter delivered to our suite. It was so close to everything and dinner downstairs was great, short walk down the stairs and we were there. Felt like home but not as everything was done for you. Had dinner went back upstairs...

My wife and I enjoyed a great stay at Escape to Picton. Very friendly staff, a large room designed with a great attention to detail, and completely quiet at night making for a perfect nights sleep. The restaurant had a bit of a wait, but food was good quality.

We stayed for 3 nights at the hotel midway through our holiday. We stayed in the formal room at the front of the hotel. It was really comfortable - great bed and bathroom. We could see the harbour from our room. We had a quick look into the modern room and that looked good too! The breakfast and dinner were... More

We did a three week motorbike tour of the South Island and this was our last stop. It took several days for them to confirm the booking, which was annoying because I was booking a lot of hotels and needed confirmation. Although the room was definitely very nice, it had no air conditioning and was quite hot, so we kept... More

Hello reviewer I have to laugh reading this as you were nearly asked to leave. 1/ we replied to you within 24 hours. 2/ When you arrived you refused to give credit card details, you went on and on and on about being ripped off. This is house policy I didn't even meet you I spoke to you on the... More

What an absolute gem of a place, on arrival we were lead to a comfortable spot in the hotel bar where we received a complimentary glass of wine while we completed the required paper work. Once the paper work was done and the wine enjoyed we were shown upstairs to the "Formal" room and what a stunning room it is.... More
