Charming hotel. Welcome drink and petit fours were lovely. Very welcoming host, excellent and knowledgeable. Grateful for early bag drop off. It is an old house so there are some creaky floor boards above if you are ground floor but not too much of an issue. Beautiful bath tub and lavender toiletries. Perfect location. I would recommend. Picton is beautiful.

This boutique hotel exceeded our expectations by far! They even had a cute desert platter for us in the room upon check in and brought us complimentary wine upon arrival (from the hotel restaurant) and croissants and lattes in the morning! Elizabeth made our stay very pleasurable and went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed and got us a table at the restaurant even though we didn’t make a resi ahead of time and they were clearly very busy! The food at the hotel restaurant was amazing! Highly recommend if you’re looking for some luxury or a romantic getaway :)
