Kippilaw House, Picton, New Zealand
Very luxurious. Beautiful food all home made. Friendly and informative management. Close to town centre - about a three minute walk. Lovely garden.

Kippilaw House, Picton, New Zealand
Hosts are very friendly and eager to make one feel at home. Margaret is a chef and so she enjoys making a three course breakfast each morning, it was amazing. Loved the warm pastries. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom is big, lots and los of towels. They have an interesting bookshelf at the disposition of the guests, interesting to browse and for a quick read if you have the time. The location is not far from the center of the town, 5 min walk. Beautiful room on a top floor with lots of light.

Amazing service. Probably the best breakfast that we’ve had at any hotel. Wonderful night’s sleep.

Friendly, Welcoming, and Delicious!
Bill and Margaret were very friendly and welcoming; the room was spacious and very comfortable with a king size bed and a great sower in the en suite. The three course breakfasts prepared by Margaret every morning were fantastic!

Perfect in every way.
We stayed with Bill and Margaret for three days of our honeymoon trip around New Zealand. We genuinely could not have asked for a better place to stay whilst we explored the town and surrounding area. The welcome was spot on (including admonishing us for not telling them when we were arriving so they could collect us) and throughout our stay they were the perfect hosts; always happy to chat and share suggestions but without being overbearing in any way. The house is beautiful and feels wonderfully homely. We were upgraded to the beautiful upstairs suite with our own sitting room and massive en-suite. The garden is an oasis of buzzing bees from the hive and beautiful plants. The friendly small dogs are a perfect addition (although can easily be kept out the way if you're not dog people). Breakfast, as described in other reviews is wonderful, we just felt bad that we couldn't finish it all and the invitation to join Margaret and Bill at their pop-up restaurant at the Blenheim farmers market on the Sunday rather than eating in the house added another dimension to our stay. In short, perfect. Thanks to our hosts for having us and being a key part of our wonderful three days in beautiful Picton.
