Very good 8.0
Pretty Picton
This is a beautiful property and Picton is lovely. It was warm when we were there and our room was not air conditioned nor was there a fan so it was uncomfortable at night. On the plus side the breakfast was awesome and they offer a laundry service as well

Wonderful house in Picton
We had a lovely time at Kippilaw House! The house was wonderful, the room was wonderful, the area was wonderful. A three course breakfast in the morning was tasty, and two old and cute dogs top off the house environment very nicely. Highly recommend staying here in Picton!

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.

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!
