Gordon and Lynne operate this wonderful accommodation house more as a vocation than as a business. Gordon picked us up from the ferry and drove me back again to pick up the hire car, even though I could have walked back. Lynne was away but I noticed how kindly Gordon, in a fatherly way, cared for the young backpackers, driving them around as needed.
The bedroom wing is wonderfully modern, clean and comfortable, more like a motel than a backpackers. I loved the pretty garden around the original old house, now the living area of the facility. There is a clothesline plus, outdoor oven, grapefruit tree, lemon tree, flowers and two house cats. Breakfast is better than anywhere else with two trays of hot scones out of the oven to go the supplied food. The morning newspaper was also supplied with breakfast. Gushing hot shower and a marvellous night's sleep. The hot spa was much appreciated but would have liked a light there at night. Computers, book swap, piano and bar b que are just some of the much appreciated extras.
The location is not central but it was just a 9 minute walk to the Kentucky fast food shop down town that supplied a large variety of take-away dinners. The supermarket is there too.
The gossip is that Picton has a high standard of accommodation because competition is keen. I would suggest looking no further than Tombstone Backpackers.

Room Tip: I believe that all rooms are of a high standard. Mine was.

They arrange pick up and drop off around the town and that really helps for those who are not driving. The owner is so kind to upgrade our room to an apartment unit that comes with a kitchen and living instead of just a room. This really helps with family travelling with kids.

I stayed here for two nights to escape the rain- it was a nice hostel with a lot of little extras to make you so much more comfortable. For examples hooks and a towel rack in the room- the bed was very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the hot tub even in the rain as it was covered. The scones for breakfast were to die for!
