I selected the Villa Backpackers because they were centrally located in Picton and were so helpful in arranging our Queen Charlotte Trek. I connected with Katherine at Villa BP and she was able to arrange everything from the ferry from Wellington to the entire Queen Charlotte Trek and back. This was an amazing service.
The Lodge offers a number of different types of accommodations. We stayed in a room with private bath. It wasn't fancy but very adequate. The kitchen facilities were OK. There is a difference between the two different buildings. We did happen to loose a piece of cheese in the refrigerator. Not really sure how that happened but as it turned out I guess we didn't need it on the Trek.
There are on site laundry facilities which was great. We were also able to leave an extra couple of bags while we were doing the hike.
The Villas is centrally located in town. It was easy to walk to everything as well as a number of great hikes out of town. It was a nice place to stay and we would stay there again. The great service that Katherine offered makes all the difference.
