We had the downstairs room for the first night and then moved to the very posh and luxurious Formal Room with a lovely bath and shower room. Toiletries were of the best lavender products, heated towel racks, excellent linen and bedding. Bathrobes for after showers, hairdryer and a cold jug of water with fresh fruit and lemons on the dresser...

I would call this a luxury Inn. There is a great restaurant and bar downstairs and 3 suits, one downstairs and two on the second floor. Our (modern) suite (second floor) was expansive with a balcony overlooking the street and marina beyond, a living area with high ceilings, bedroom with wood shuttered windows, and a very large bath with separate...

What an absolutely fantastic place, wonderful service and delicious food! My husband and I are driving a campervan around the beautiful South Island of NZ and happened upon 'Escape to Picton' on a local's recommendation! What a treat it was! Try the Pavlova Berry Stack dessert for a real treat! We'll be back for sure! :)

Everybody needs to visit this place. The food is out of this world and the service was top class also. Portion sizes Very generous...Juliana(the chef) came out and made sure our food was how we wanted it. We also stayed in the Modern Suite which would rival any suite around the world. Very reasonably priced too.
