“Gaining reputation ( and some attitude )”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I stayed here a year ago and the place was quite nice. I was eager for a return. No doubt it still is nice and the recent reviews attest to this. But I feel I have to remark on my latest unsuccessful attempt to secure an evening of accommodation. I used the "Quick Contact " button on the website and requested a room. Fair enough if the place was booked, my request was admittedly last minute and I was prepared to be disappointed , But I got no reply whatsoever to my enquiry. I followed up with a phone call a day or so later and was told curtly : "I have nothing for you". Maybe I am a little too sensitive but in a high end place like this I expect a little common courtesy ---- like an answer to a web reservation request, even if it is negative, and an apology before being curtly turned down over the phone. ( Better still how about a recommendation on another place to try ---good for someone else's business ?? ) Stuff like that leaves a bad taste in ones mouth. Maybe the Manse has had a little too much success and is adopting what I am coming to recognize is PEC bad attitude. I have run into it recently in other places in the county. Perhaps my 20 year love affair with the county, traditionally a warm, friendly and inviting place, is coming to an end. Success has spoiled them.

We had a reunion and birthday celebration with six couples and had a wonderful stay.
Everything was perfect ...Chris, the food was amazing....the rooms were quainted but stylish...the grounds were fun ( swimming and hot tub ) and we enjoyed our happy hours in the gazebo. Kathleen you had everything well organized and we will definately be returning. Thank you for making this memorable weekend so perfect.

My wife and I just finished our second staty at the Manse and have already planned to go back for another. We stumbled upon the place from a reference by a local citizen and while checking it out while on aother stay somewhere else we met Chef Chris. After speaking with him and checking out their website we decided to give it a try. Boy have we ever lucked in. Both of our stays have been the BEST 2 day getaways we could ask for. The atmosphere, the ambiance, the peacefulness, the food and of course the hosts Kathleen and Chef Chris make this an ideal get away for us. We can't wait to go back and just wish it was sooner.

We just had the best 2 days at the Manse! The hosts went so far above & beyond to make our stay comfortable. Wonderful room with a nice shared balcony & the bed was so comfortable. The grounds & pool area are immaculate. We had the romantic dinner package & it was absolutely worth it. The chef is fantastic! Breakfasts were so tasty too. everything fresh and homemade. Wonderful experience, we'll be back!

Room Tip: Ask for room 1 or 4, they have the balconys

Absolutely loved it. Pool, hottub, food, rooms, service were all impeccable. Dinner on the patio was to die for. Great wine selection. We would have stayed longer if it had been available. This inn is in the heart of Picton and close to Amenities if you need them. We will definitely visit again soon.

We stayed for two nights mid-week. The pool and hot tub were what initially drew us to The Manse.. but the overall stay will make us re-book! The room was wonderful (even with the AC being on the fritz - we had a back-up unit). The bed was very comfortable, best nights sleep we've had in a long time! The shower was amazing.. if I remember there were 5 different shower heads. Breakfasts were delicious... especially Chris's homemade bacon. We had dinner one evening at the Inn - 3 course meal - again delicious. The Manse will be our only destination in Picton from now on!

This beautiful stone heritage building in the heart of Picton was renovated with imagination and flair. It boasts all the modern conveniences for a relaxing holiday, including a sparkling shower with multiple jets for a spa-like experience. Our room looked out over the garden and pool, all landscaped with stone, water feature, flowering shrubs, grasses, and trees. Lounges and umbrellas create nooks for whiling away time at the end of perfect days exploring the County. You can arrange an evening meal at the Manse if you book ahead of time and preorder. Our three-course dinner was beautifully presented, delicious, and made from local produce. Our hosts were pleasant and informative, and ran the place smoothly. We've stayed in other B&Bs in the area and we think we've found a keeper!

Room Tip: If traveling with another couple, ask for the two rooms with the shared balcony overlooking the pool...
