Having stayed in many 4-5 star accommodations, the Sennen House exceeded our expectations. We spent 3 nights in the James Cook apt, perfect for 2 couples as there are 2 private bathrooms. The rooms are immaculate and the decor cozy. Especially enjoyed the private dining table in the apt, set daily with fresh white linen. The kitchenette allowed us to... More

Stephanie and Don did everything they could to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip and both rooms were very well appointed with great attention to detail. The Sir Joseph Banks apartment was very spacious. Our hosts lent us raincoats, drove us to a restaurant and offered to... More

Very friendly hosts. Greeting us from the car & welcoming into their home. All the little details were taken care of. Lots of good food for breakfast & the very best hot fresh fruit bread delivered to our room. Beautifully restored house.

What a great place to stay... quiet, beautiful old villa, big breakfast, spacious room, outdoor deck, really comfortable bed with quality linen, special touches eg home-baking. Lovely hosts, friendly & helpful. Would definitely return to Sennen House, so much better than an impersonal hotel.

We were tramping the Queen Charlotte Track and stayed at Sennen House both before and after the hike. The place is exactly what you imagine a boutique B&B to be: beautifully decorated, comfy four poster bed, his 'n hers bath robes, nice toiletries, etc. When we first arrived, I thought that I might have trouble getting my wife to leave,...

Steff & Don are wonderful hosts. They are warm, friendly & have taken great care in every detail to welcome their guests. The dogs are cute and well behaved and the sheep (Frankie & Gary) add a charming touch to the B&B. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast quite delicious. We really enjoyed our two night stay.

Stephanie and Don provided us with a wonderful stop in Picton with our 2 year old son. They were welcoming and even offered to collect us from the train station which made our arrival completely hassle free.

We had a wonderful time there. The house is historic, beautiful, and clean! The owners are very friendly, although we are foreigners. Two little dogs and sheeps welcomed us, of course they don't bother guests! Calm and comfortable. Recommend!

Thank you so much for your really lovely review. Most of the reason we bought Sennen House is because we love meeting people from all around the world and learning a little bit about different countries and cultures.

Arriving at this lovely home tells you that it is well cared for and that you will also be well cared for by the host/owners.
