Escape to Picton is a boutique hotel & restaurant in Picton, New Zealand. The hotel is enviably sited by the town’s waterfront, overlooking the marina. Within a stone’s throw are regular boating tours of the Marlborough Sounds, and connections to the famous Queen Charlotte walking track. A mere 20-minute drive separates us from the seemingly endless vineyards of the Wairau and Awatere valleys, and the remarkable wineries dotted among them. Much thought and effort has gone into creating accommodation befitting the astonishingly beautiful surrounds. Our three suites are as different from each other as they are equally comely, each suite featuring unique pieces of exquisite handmade furniture collected over many years. We consider that one’s living environment not only reflects, but also determines one’s state of mind. Taking this as our mantra, we’ve done everything in our power to make our three suites genuine havens for our guests.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Escape to Picton is a luxury hotel somewhat oddly located in the little town of Picton. We stayed in the Formal Suite and what you might want to know is that there is no fridge or A/C. We needed to leave the windows open for cool air and it was somewhat noisy for a bit. The other thing is that to eat in the restaurant, which has a really intriguing menu, you need to give 24 hours' notice so they can prepare all meals to order. We didn't know this and were unable to eat there. On the positive side the suite was very roomy and comfortable and the staff (which seemed to consist of one extremely energetic person) was first-rate.

A wonderfull traditional style small boutique hotel, with suberb service. The dinner was fabulous, as was the breakfast. Highly recommended for couples! We also loved the big bathtub:) Great location with easy walking distance to the harbor and rental car offices.

Nice downstairs room. Large bathroom with tub but unfortunately no shower. Elizabeth was a gracious hostess and chef. Dinner was overpriced for the quality of the food. Missed the full breakfast the next morning due to catching an early ferry. Location is close to harbor and ferry terminal.

Well worth a stay, so bright, clean and the spa bath is in a whole other level. This place doesn’t have a lift however there is one apartment downstairs. Our room was up a few stairs. The configuration of the room has been designed with the traveller in mind. Upon a rival there a few mini tea cakes, as well as two bottles of sparkling water in the fridge, these sorts of touches keep you returning. A gorgeous comfortable warm dressing gowns, another thoughtful touch. The bedroom is separated from the front room by a wall, see this design a lot overseas. It was quite so peaceful, and still in the CBD so in walking distance to cafes, shops excursions. There is also a wee restaurant downstairs, we didn’t get a chance to try it but there is always next time. Highly recommend X10

An absolutely beautiful , cosy and luxurious hotel in the middle of Picton. My wife and i spent two nights in the modern suite and were just so impressed with everything. From our giant bed covered in lovely plush bedding and soft pillows to our bathroom with it's double jacuzzi, walk in shower and delightful lavender shampoos and bubblebath. High quality furniture in keeping with our rooms theme, TV with movies and sport in both rooms plus a shared balcony area with a great view. On arrival we were greeted warmly and instantly felt at home, the standard of service is amazing and thoughtful. We have stayed in some fine hotels all over NZ and Europe and both agree Escape to Picton has made it into our top 3 hotel experiences to date. Keep up the amazing work we can't wait to return.

A Lovely nights stay in the formal room at this beautiful charming and elegant historical home in Picton. The host was very welcoming and accommodating providing a comfortable stay with a late checkout. It was very close to everything Picton has to offer. Thank you.

Wow what a terrific experience this was and the only downside, our schedule meant we could only stay one night. This is a jewel in Picton dwarfed by larger properties but not dwarfed in any other respect. Absolute luxury and hopefully our pictures paint the picture. We stayed in the Modern Suite as opposed to the Formal. Just beautiful.

We have just recently stayed at Escape to Picton and what a wonderful hotel it is. The staff were amazing from start to finish. We ate in the hotel restaurant which was also amazing. Fish and Chips and the Prawn Cocktail was brilliant (prawn cocktail was a special that night). The rooms are absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend the Escape to Picton if you are looking for a nice hotel in Picton. Many thanks for a lovely stay.
