Sounds Vista Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 24 Picton B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Sounds Vista is run a husband and wife who have furnished the place to an exceptional standard and I doubt if any other Picton BB could boast such levels of cleanliness and excellent furnishings , it really is top class. It's located out of town which isn't a problem if you have your own transport but you will need to stick with a juice or coffee with dinner if you are driving , not that Picton offers any real culinary delights as it takes on an almost tacky 1980s UK seaside feel with fast food and families walking aimlessly , an odd place. Back at Sounds Vista you will get a great sleep and a chatty continental breakfast with your hosts. Picton I'm afraid , just didn't entice us to stay longer

We have booked a family room here. I was surprised when I walked into our room. Room was spacious, spotless, comfortable and much fabulous than the pictures show on the website.

Highly recommend!!!

We had a great night at sounds vista. We were made to feel really welcome and we enjoyed the views, the beautiful room and the company of our hosts. Meeting Charlie and missy was an added bonus!

We stayed at Sounds Vista before and after our walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. Nikki is a super friendly host and will help and advice you with everything. She dropped us of at the Cougarline and we could leave the car and some luggage at the b&b. We had a great walk and could look forward to staying at Sounds Vista again after 4 days of walking. After the walk we were picked up again from the wharf. The rooms have really comfortable beds and a luxurious and spacious ensuite badroom. Breakfast is good and the times are flexible. Thanks Nikki and Brent, we had a great stay. We would definately stay here again!!!

Called into Picton on our way to Wellington my daughter with her fiance and myself decided to try a B&B for the night. Our hosts Nikki and Brent went out of their way to make us feel at home. Our accomodation was spacious and comfortable and Nikki went out of her way with our breakfast as one of us cannot tolerate gluten and she had gluten-free toast ready for his breakfast. Awesome Nikki ! Being ex locals we often visit but the motel we usually use was booked out, bad luck for them as we will use Sounds Vista again.Great hosts, fabulous veiws from deck, lovely rooms, and Charlie the lamb out the back.

My wife and I were lucky enough to pick Sounds Vista out of the travel guide during a road trip through New Zealand. Although only staying the one night and thus unable to comment on Picton as a whole this place was absolutely fabulous. We stayed in one of the guest rooms and I can honestly say I don't think I've stayed anywhere decorated and furnished to such a high level. In particular the en-suite was fabulous - the pictures on the website really don't just how sumptuous it is.

Additionally, we were looked after by Nikki during our brief stay who the definition of a great host. Not only friendly and helpful she also provided us with some great advice and tips for our journey to Christchurch.

I would absolutely and without hesitation recommend this place to anyone requiring accommodation in the Picton area.

This was our first B&B experience and we were delighted with the lovely friendly hosts and personal attention. We had the family room which was clean and spacious.
We would definitely recommend this B&B. I'd go back just for the extensive continental breakfast - delicious!!
