Stayed here for only 1 night before crossing by ferry back to Wellington next day. It's an easy 5-7min walk to the main Picton attractions. They offer free pick up/drop off service and wireless internet, which was great. As a proper bnb the fare includes a very nice continental breakfast as well. I booked it through wotif, so could pay it by card without issues. Sharon was looking into maybe getting card payments soon. Room was spotless with a very comfy bed. I highly recommend it for a night stay whenever in Picton. They are also able to hold some of your belongings if you are going to the Queen Charlotte for a few days. In our case we went for a dolphin swimming trip (no dolphins unfortunately) next day before the afternoon ferry and Sharon let us leave our bags there after we checked out; later when we picked them up Russel was kind to drop us off at the ferry terminal. Very friendly and helpful hosts, tks guys!! You are first on our list next time in Picton.
P.S. if you're keen on a seafood feast try the seafood platter ($88 for 2) at the Cortado Cafe.
