This boutique hotel is situated in the heart of Picton and would have to be the pick of the town. Our hostess and owner Juliearna was delightful and passionate about her boutique hotel and restaurant. She greeted us with a glass of wine and a warm welcome which immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The suite that we had... More

Stranded in the chaos of Picton when the weather turned sour and Ferries cancelled. We found this lovely hotel a haven. Soaking weary traveller bones in a old school bath then sleeping so soundly in a bed truly designed for a king. Thank you Warren and Angeliana.

We booked this hotel because we were moving from the South to the North Island and wanted somewhere relaxing to sleep before the ferry journey, and also somewhere pet friendly. We were delayed leaving Chch and didn't end up arriving until 11.30pm. This was no problem, likewise our early start and early breakfast, the leftover pastries were packed up for... More

We recently stayed at Escape Picton Boutique Hotel for two nights. The rooms are exactly as described in the advertising materiel and are elegantly appointed and provide a good level of comfort. The owner is an outgoing and warm host. There are however some aspects that are worthy of comment. We stayed in the Sea Room and initially we were... More

I decided to stay a night in Picton before crossing to Wellington and decided to stay here. The owner and her staff were delightful. I am travelling on my own and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. I stayed in the Sea room on the ground floor, which is not the most expensive of their rooms here but... More

My boyfriend booked this hotel as a surprise for our anniversary and our stay at Escape to Picton was perfect. Each room is unique and the interior is stunning. We stayed in the Modern Suite which was very large, almost like an apartment! I would even go as far to say that it is the nicest hotel I have stayed... More

My wife and I had been looking for somewhere to stay the night since we arrived in the Marlborough region and were not having much luck, most motels/hotels were either full or hideous and then we literally stumbled upon this beautiful little boutique hotel on the quay front in gorgeous Picton. We were very warmly welcomed and then offered to... More

Whilst the room was immaculate, and well appointed, we were disappointed given the price that there was no coffee making facilities within the room. Moreover, milk was provided in a bowl with ice, rather than having access to a fridge in the room. One had to boil water in the corridor outside. Providing instant Coffee for five-star was not up...

Hello Reviewer, Thank you for letting us know your thoughts, we only had our kettle on the landing for a week as one had broken, each suite has its own jug/kettle, this has been this way for over 2 months now.
