Generally when travelling on my own on business I choose to stay in a hotel, on this occasion I stumbled upon Kippilaw House. I had all the privacy I needed with my own bathroom and beautiful bedroom. So many surprises.... I thought it was an old house but it is new and beatuifuly appointed. Margaret the owner was just lovely and her husband Bill was a great host. I had dinner with them and breakfast again before I left in the morning. (Food was yummy!!) Unlike staying in a hotel I felt like I had been away for the night with friends!! I will certainly be returning to stay the next time I am anywhere near Picton.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Feel relaxed, warm and comfortable at Kippilaw House our guests often mention that they have walked in as guests and left us as friends. We are just a few minutes stroll to the waters edge of the Marlborough Sounds, cafes and various activities. Margaret is a professional chef/caterer of many years standing and loves sharing her recipes and experience in food. Bill is excellent passing on knowledge of the region things to do and see. Originally from the borders of Scotland he spent all his school holidays at Kippilaw Estate where his grandfather was the groom. We also operate a very well stocked deli Trailer at the Marlborough Farmers Market in Blenheim on Sundays where guests are most welcome to enjoy their breakfasts if staying Saturday night with us. We pride ourselves on good southern hospitality and place equal importance on the breakfast and the comfortable beds. Our point of difference is providing freshly sourced food with menus changing daily. Complementary afternoon tea is served at 3pm if you have not arrived this is left covered in your room. We make tasty interesting packed breakfasts for early travellers to take away. ... more less
