This was booked through the information centre in picton for 3 nights, at their recommendation. about 8kl from town. When we arrived the owner was just going out, leaving us a note. The room was clean and well appointed, 4 rooms appear to have been added on the front top part of the house from the outside. Access to the... More

We wanted a double room and they gave us a ground floor room with private bath across the hall. Room had 2 rubber water bottle (bed warmers?) extra towels,... More

We were upgraded to a lovely family room with bathroom when we had booked a dorm as the hostel was quiet. Very clean and quiet and friendly owners, they even offered us a lift to the next town Only downside if you don't have a car is the distance from Picton

Booked this little gem for two nights through BBH website. Totally amazing. We are doing our 'grey gap year' on a year around the world ticket. We have been travelling for 7 months so far and The Buccaneer is one of those places you arrive at and feel instantly at home. Excellent clean facilities, warm hospitable hosts, views to soak...

Our room was upstairs with an ensuite with balcony, table and chairs - double bed with bunk beds in our room. Kettle etc in room which is a nice touch and very handy as kitchen is downstairs. It is very quiet with a paddock in front with sheep and hens. Complimentary homemade bread in the morning which was delicious. Everything... More

Found this place in the BBH guide. Stayed in a double room with ensuite for one night. Cost about 70 dollars (can't remember exactly). Nice, clean shower and toilet. Comfortable bed, great views across harbour. Great value compared to other places around NZ where you pay the same for shared bathroom and no view. Shared kitchen and lounge was very... More

We stayed two nights at Buccaneer, before and after the Queen Charlotte track. Although it's tent minutes outside the centre of Picton, the owners Mel and Phil will pick you up and drop you off for a small charge.rooms are clean and spacious and you can do washing, use wifi and there is a shared balcony space which faces the...

I stayed there with my family- a 1 year old, 3 year old and husband for one night. They charged us $110, and in no way was it worth this. As it shows on the fridge that it is $78 per room(up to 4 people) I enquired later and was told this rate was for BBH members only, and we... More

I am really disappointed that you would post this very negative review after we answered your previous email regarding the price of your room – it would have been preferable if you had voiced your concern before you departed rather than in an email a few days later with a veiled threat of a bad Tripadvisor review. This is only... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located a short distance from the Waikawa Marina in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound, the Buccaneer Lodge offers spacious, modern, en-suite rooms with a balcony that makes the most of the outlook. So after an adventurous day walking the Queen Charlotte Track or maybe kayaking in the sounds, sit and enjoy a cold glass of local Sauvignon Blanc while taking in the peaceful marina and sea views. The Buccaneer Lodge is owner operated and is a warm, friendly, comfortable home away from home. Located close to local walks, restaurant, cafe, bar and safe swimming beach in beautiful Waikawa Bay. ... more   less
