What a great place to stay... quiet, beautiful old villa, big breakfast, spacious room, outdoor deck, really comfortable bed with quality linen, special touches eg home-baking. Lovely hosts, friendly & helpful. Would definitely return to Sennen House, so much better than an impersonal hotel.

We were tramping the Queen Charlotte Track and stayed at Sennen House both before and after the hike. The place is exactly what you imagine a boutique B&B to be: beautifully decorated, comfy four poster bed, his 'n hers bath robes, nice toiletries, etc. When we first arrived, I thought that I might have trouble getting my wife to leave,...

Steff & Don are wonderful hosts. They are warm, friendly & have taken great care in every detail to welcome their guests. The dogs are cute and well behaved and the sheep (Frankie & Gary) add a charming touch to the B&B. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast quite delicious. We really enjoyed our two night stay.

Stephanie and Don provided us with a wonderful stop in Picton with our 2 year old son. They were welcoming and even offered to collect us from the train station which made our arrival completely hassle free. The house itself is quiet and a just a really lovely escape for people coming in from long flights and busy lives in... More

We had a wonderful time there. The house is historic, beautiful, and clean! The owners are very friendly, although we are foreigners. Two little dogs and sheeps welcomed us, of course they don't bother guests! Calm and comfortable. Recommend!

Thank you so much for your really lovely review. Most of the reason we bought Sennen House is because we love meeting people from all around the world and learning a little bit about different countries and cultures. There is usually a welcoming party when guests turn up and the dogs and sheep always seem to be more popular than... More

Arriving at this lovely home tells you that it is well cared for and that you will also be well cared for by the host/owners. Our room (I think it was the John Banks Room - or similar) was spacious and spotless. Everything you need is provided, even down to a ride in Don's car into the town for dinner... More

This place has a historic background but the current owners are making new history themselves. From the moment we arrived they delivered a first class service and really couldn't have been more helpful. All the facilities you could hope for were provided (and some !!) and the rooms were both comfortable and functional. I really can't praise Stephanie and Don... More
