We had given up all hope finding anywhere to stay in Picton after a gruelling journey when the kind lady at I-site found us this VERY reasonably priced accommodation.
It got better! When we arrived, our charming host served us( with the milk) a dish of the most delicious biscuits baked by his equally delightful wife! My husband thought he'd died and gone to heaven!
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bed very much so. Two good night's sleep after a restless two nights in Blenheim in a very much more expensive and noisy motel.
My husband's comment was when we looked round the place after we arrived: " Just like visiting your favourite granny"........true! AND the cute crocheted toiletroll cover and willow patterned crockery bore that out. Though we did not require it this time, the complete kitchen with all one needed, plus a proper (!) oven was appreciated as was the round homely kitchen table with a red check tablecloth.
If ever we are visiting NZ again, we shall stay here again, not least because of the beautiful position. Just wonderful!
Thank you for making our last days on the South Island so pleasant.
