Phil who owns the lodge met us and was very informative and friendly. The room was pleasant with a good view and outside balcony.There was a large kitchen which you were more than welcome to use to cook meals etc.

I wasn't sure what to expect what I booked the Buccaneer Lodge. As we only needed a room for one night before leaving on the ferry early the next morning, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a motel (and places in Picton seemed expensive). This turned out to be a great choice: well located just a...

I stayed at Buccaneer Lodge Saturday 15th January with my ten year old daughter. I've travelled a lot all over the world and this is in my top three favourite places. Thank you so much for everything. You couldn't ask for a better host, we felt really lucky. The cleanest and crispest place I've ever stayed, a gorgeous location, and...

My sister and I stayed here recently and I highly recommended. The room was very pleasant with a queen and single bed, private bathroom and views over to the bay. There is a shared kitchen and common room, and on site parking. There is no bar fridge in the room, but apart from that perfectly lovely. Really for the price...

Beautiful location, great room, and a warm welcome - Phil was helpful throughout, pointing us towards a good dinner and a nice walk in the morning. He even offered a delicious freshly cooked loaf for breakfast and hosed the frost off the car in the morning. It is very convenient for the Cook Strait ferry, but in a quiet location....

Stayed one night prior to crossing to North Island on the ferry.Buccaneer Lodge is a really lovely place. Our room was at the front up some outside stairs - lovely views, clean, good size and modern.

We stayed two nights at Buccaneer Lodge, and were amazed at how lovely it was considering the low price. We had a large, comfortable room, overlooking the harbour and the hills, and access to a convenient, clean, and well equipped kitchen downstairs. It was so quiet and restful. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming - a lovely...

Nice clean tidy room. Shared kitchen. Good view of the bay from the balcony. In the morning there was freshly baked bread available in the kitchen, yummy! Friendly staff and lots of brochures and information available.

We were a few people so it was very quiet. Large double room with a comfortable bed. Facilities very clean. Landry-machine and dryer (2$ each) very efficient. Kitchen well equipped with everything for cooking. Several tables outside. Staff friendly. The only negative point is the wifi : free vouchers but only 50 MB that is really too low for travellers.

Hi Thanks for all your positive feedback - we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our apologies you did not have enough Wi-fi - since you visited in December we have made the decision to increase the value of the Wi-fi voucher we give on arrival to 200MB.
