The hotel is in an amazing location and this is complimented by the high quality of the rooms, and the helpful staff. Spent two nights in the beautiful Escape to Picton. The food an atmosphere are top class and highly recommended. I would definitely stay there again.

Although our "formal" bedroom was spacious & very tastefully decorated, it reminded us of an old fashioned seaside boarding house - not a boutique hotel! it did not have double glazing which meant that traffic noise and people walking on street below could easily be heard. Apparently we were lucky that the Irish Bar beside it was quiet when we... More

Travelling around NZ, we drove to Picton on the off chance and found this hotel near the sea front. Although not the cheapest when compared to the local motels, the small additional cost was, nonetheless, very good value for money. The owners and staff were all very friendly and efficient; the room was comfortable and clean; and it was convenient... More

We stayed for 2 nights while touring around Blenheim and Abel Tasman. We also had dinner downstairs the first night. Julianne is very nice and hospitable. The food is fantastic and I am still dreaming about the homemade berry-cream brioche (muffin?) and croissants for breakfast. The room was beautiful and very comfortable and quiet and my husband loved the huge... More

From the moment I walked through the door, I was charmed! The owner & top-notch chef, Juliana Kavanaugh, bent over backwards to create a memorable stay in New Zealand. The accommodations were comfortable, yet elegant. Service was over-the top! You won't be disappointed. Gwen R. Mississippi USA

Hello I am really surprised by this review, most love the suites and the stay here we try very hard to please, if someone does not want pastries and fresh croissants we do yogurt or omelettes or anything to French toast. Glass of wine on arrival and bucket of ice if needed. Whatever you require. There is nothing specific in... More
