“Great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

The B&B has three rooms, two with en-suite bathroom. Nice view, clean and quiet rooms, one is larger than the other one, same price. Good breakfast and an extra room with a fridge where you will find wine for the guest or where you can store food you bought. You can make tea or coffee. Laundry is possible for a small charge. Walking distance to down-town Picton.The hosts are great and we felt like home. It was hard to leave. We became friends during our short stay. I highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed at The Glengary in December before and after hiking The Queen Charlotte Track and Glenys and Gary kindly let us leave our car there.
A high grade B & B with everything of good quality from the towels and bed linen to the shampoo and body wash (which were good brands rather than the usual wholesale miniatures).
Close to the Town with a lovely view over the harbour.
An excellent guest lounge with coffee,tea and even wine available. During the afternoon some delicious Christmas cake also appeared!
Breakfast was delicious and most of the items on offer were homemade.
Genys and Gary are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I admired Glenys' bracelet and wondered where I could get a particular charm. Later that night Glenys knocked on our door to say that she had tracked down the charm at a local shop and to my delight had reserved one for me.
We would highly recommend this establishment.

What a great place. Lots of people just pass through after getting off the ferry but we decided to stay for two nights and relax/explore a bit.
The Glengary B&B is a very good place to stay. A short walk from the town centre. Free parking on the drive way. Nice bedrooms with en-suites. A communal lounge for the guests (3 guest rooms I think) with a a TV, a fridge stocked with local wine and attraction leaflets.
Glenys made sure we enjoyed our stay, despite this being the day after the Feb earthquake, and the effect it had on their family. She came to meet us from the ferry and made us feel very welcome. She provided useful suggestions on where to eat/drink and also suggested taking the mail boat trip round the marlborough sounds (which was great). She put on a great spread for breakfast (including cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurts etc), which is served downstairs with the other guests.
A lovely place, where a warm welcome is a sure thing.

Glengary is a superb bed-and-breakfast located a short walk from the centre of Picton. Our bed-room had a lovely view over the harbour. The bedroom itself was spacious and spotlessly clean with en-suite facilities. Breakfast was self-serve with plenty of home-made items to tempt the palate. Our hostess, Glynis, couldn't have been more helpful. The main purpose of our visit to Picton was the occasion of our younger daughter's wedding. Not only did Glynis sort out "over-flow" accommodation for our older daughter, but she also stored our excess luggage for the two days of the wedding (at a nearby location) and gave us all a lift down to the ferry terminal at the end of the second part of our stay. Highly recommended.

Gary met us at the ferry terminal with a warm welcome and drove us to the Glengary B&B. The bedrooms were comfortable and there was also a guest lounge. Glenys served a substantial continental breakfast which included her homemade muesli, jams, and prepared pears and tamarillos. While we were off on a four day tramp on the Queen Charlotte Track, Glenys kindly followed up with the rental car company in Wellington about my missing sunglasses and had a message forwarded to let me know that she would have them for our stay afterwards. She also arranged for the shuttle to take us to the Picton airport. The B&B is close to the downtown area and an easy walk to restaurants. Very friendly hosts.

We booked Glengary for the two nights at start and end of our walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. We drove in, left our bags and then returned our hire car as we were off to the North Island afterwards. It is not far to walk down to the town or the QC track water taxis, a bit farther to the ferry terminals. We were able to leave the luggage we didn't need whilst we walked.
Glenys and Gary were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The room was good, we had one with a nice view over the harbour. As others have said, there is an upstairs lounge with cookies, tea and coffee and sauvignon blanc plus a tv if you want it (not one in the room, which didn't worry us). Plenty of books to read and possibly exchange. Excellent breakfasts with fruit, cereals, bread/toast etc - more than enough for us.
As an example of their helpfulness, I came back from the QC track boat to do some washing, took it all down to the laundrette and found that there were no soap machines - you could buy soap from the "office" but that was closed, despite signs saying it was open, and remained closed. I was taking it all back when I met Glenys, who offered to drive me back, found some soap and then brought me back to the laundrette. We left on the afternoon ferry to Wellington, and she brought our luggage down to the ferry terminal and met us there (we had wandered round the town for an hour or two)

Picton is a lovely small town in a beautiful area - we would happily go back - and would stay again at Glengary
