I travelled to this Inn with my Mum for a quick escape at the beginning of March. I was really pleased with the experience overall and I will return.
The town of Picton is a lovely spot with some really nice little stores and we had lunch at a great restaurant that started the weekend off perfectly!
Once we arrived at the Inn (4 hours before check in) we were checked in and allowed to go to our room to unwind after the wintery drive. The rooms are extremely well appointed with a great selection of furniture, a big beautiful four poster bed and a spa style bathroom!
Off to the spa and although they did not match decorative style in the basement spa the skill and quality of services were unbeatable! After a very relaxing massage that left me wishing I had chosen many more services we decided to try the indoor / outdoor pool. Here all luxury ceases. My only suggestion here is to not bother. Go and take a look and you will see....that's all.
The restaurant is a lovely spot at the back of the house. It has great views and the service was to match! The food was average to above average; it was very heavy winter fair that went for a very simple flavour base. I was not wowed by any part but I did finish my meal. The wine selection was good - not great but I enjoyed my glass of wine and we retired to the room for our own wine selection in front of the fireplace with books and gossip.
Overall there are things that can be improved on and I hope they do kick it up a notch as they have the opportunity to be competitive with the higher end escapes.....but then....I would assume the price point would change too so I shall enjoy it will trying to figure out this conundrum.
