“A friendly and clean hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

My wife and I visited this hotel for 3 days from 20th to 23rd February 2012. It is situated 2 blocks from the waterfront and round the corner from most restaurants. Glory and John, our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Glory took us to Picton ferry on the last morning as it was raining even though the ferry is only ten minutes walk away. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the continental breakfast more than adequate. Well worth the stay and very good value for money.

Room Tip: Garden room is probably a bit quieter although overall all rooms are quiet.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011 via mobile

We stayed at this B and B for a single night in mid-December. It is conveniently located close to the Interislander ferry terminal. The views are blocked by a large motel complex across the road. We paid $130 for a nights accommodation and a continental breakfast. The room was a good size and comfortable although the ensuite was somewhat small. It was an unremarkable place to stay but clean and comfortable.

Great location, very clean and comfortable. Caring, helpful management. Picton is worth a longer visit than most people give it. Don't miss taking a boat out to get on the Queen Charlotte walking track, stay over or get picked up later in the day. Great and not too taxing. We just had to return to do some more of this lovely walk.

Wonderful place to stay for anyone on a non extravagent budget. Extremely friendly hosts, which really made it for us. Lovely homely feel. Lovely breakfast in a nice living area.
Whole property extremely clean, homely, very nicely decorated and professionally upkept.
Frontage definitely needs sprucing up, as it doesn't adequately portray the wondeful interior. New managers are working on this. Definitely need new flags and one idea I would have would be window boxes perhaps?

Room Tip: All rooms looked lovely.

We had a lovely stay at the Admirals Lodge with John and Glory - I believe they were new managers that had only been there a couple of weeks.

We found the lodge as we were driving around Picton looking for somewhere to stay and noticed their sandwich board sign with the nights prices on it. We had a clean and tidy double room with flat screen tv and ensuite - and it suited us perfectly for our one night stopover. Glory served us a simple but lovely breakfast in the kitchen/lounge in the morning - which was all included in the price.

Read reviews and looked forward to staying here! Very disappointed! We had the Captain's Cabin and were told we wouldn't need/want to leave. There was outside seating but It was raining and there was no indoor seating (except the bed). The outside BBQ had cockroaches in it and little gas - no outside light- had to ask for a pot and plates. Torch supplied but didn't work. Inside - only 1 out of 3 light bulbs in main light worked and shade was hanging off that, no Sky TV - only very old TV with 3 chanels, no hairdryer. Breakfast was included but 3 days supply was left at start and not refilled. Fridge was so small very little fitted in it. There was no room service at all - extra towels could be collected in main house if you wanted more than 1 towel for 3 days. Didn't see rooms in the main house to know it they were any different. At $150 per night this room was not worth the money and certainly not 4 star quality. There was internet access for those who wanted it and it was very central to the waterfront.

We stayed in a very characterful room with a four-poster bed but hardly any wardrobe space, just a rail over the fridge! The Lodge is an old building which has been tastefully refurbished. There was free internet but no working guest telephones available. Tasty breakfasts were served by the jovial manager in a pleasant breakfast room.
