we needed an overnight stop before an early morning ferry to Wellington. Superb location, and our double room with en suite was old, but spotless and had everything we needed, including a good bed. Friendly staff, great kitchen, chocolate pudding, and hot drinks whenever.

The hostel is very clean, the owner is a nice guy and they serve chocolate pudding and ice cream for free at 8.00pm. The lodge is a good place to stay in Picton. The kitchen is clean as well as all the facilities. You can even be picked up by them directly from the ferry. Enjoy!

Just stayed one night and wished I had booked a couple more! Friendly and welcoming staff, clean rooms, clean bathrooms and a lovely atmosphere with friendly like minded backpackers. Liked the added extras of pick up and drop off to the ferry terminal/bus station and hot chocolate pudding.

We only stayed one night, but it was overall a pleasant experience. A warm welcome from the manager, unexpected free breakfast as a special treat, clean rooms, well-equipped kitchen and location in a quiet part of town. However the rooms could be a little more soundproof - we could hear quite clearly what our neighbours are saying in their room.
