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.

An absolutely luxurious B & B. Beautiful rooms, spotlessly clean, Egyptian cotton linens, heated flooring, deck with a fabulous view, so many extras.
And the hosts Brent and Nicky are so welcoming and friendly with great local knowledge.
As well, they provide a wonderful continental breakfast, fresh fruit and hot croissants among many other items.
It was such a pleasure to stay with them and Brent was always available to give us a lift.
If you are looking for the best B & B in Picton,look no further.
Thank you Brent and Nicky for a wonderful stay.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. It was really nice meeting you all. Enjoyed our chat on the deck over a glass of wine. We really hope to get over to your country. We will definitely look you up and are very keen to come out on your boat. Take care and safe travels.

We had six days here and would happily have stayed much longer if it had been possible!
Spotless, comfortable accommodation with a brilliant view out to the Sound.
Excellent breakfasts and our hosts, Nicky and Brent were the best. Every detail taken care of !😁

We used Sounds Vista B&B as our before and after accommodation to walk the Queen Charlotte track. Brent provided pick up from the ferry and drop-off to the train as well as
lifts to the town centre. Delicious cooked/continental breakfast to fit with our timing.
Big happy wave when we passed in the nearby train. Provided storage of our ports for the week of the trek. Left feeling like I had stayed with best friends. Wow ! Photos on the web site will amply show the beauty of the site and the quality of the rooms. Family room is budget accom which is roomy.

I booked through Hotels.com. The description (and the relatively expensive price) did not make it clear that the room does not have a bathroom in it - that one needs to walk through the house to use the bathroom. I was pretty blown away. The owner wanted us to pay even more for a small bedroom with no view that had a bathroom. The owner was very difficult and unfriendly about the whole situation, though she did agree to cancel after I called Hotels.com and put them on the phone. For twenty dollars less than what the owner wanted to charge us, we stayed in a harbor view room at the five star hotel right on the water.

We didn't stay at the Sound View, but it looked like your average plastic suburban home. There is a very distant view of the city and the sound from the front deck, but not from the rooms. The owner was extremely disagreeable and unfriendly.

It's a shame that all accommodation providers don't get to write reviews and rate guests like you, giving then the option to refuse entry to their property. Based on your previous reviews, it is clear to see what sort of attitude you have ! We would certainly not have allowed you the privilege of staying in our Home !!

I would recommend this bnb to couples and families - it's great value and very comfortable. Picton is a gorgeous little village and Sounds Vista overlooks it all. Nikki made us feel very welcome on arrival and gave us great advice where to shop and dine out in Picton.

Unfortunately we only spent one night here (arriving late and having to leave early to catch the ferry the next morning). We had the large room downstairs -- it had a queen size bed, single bed and pull-out sofa. Beautiful room with large screen TV, fridge, coffee, tea etc. Small but nice bathroom was upstairs. Big terrace at front of house with nice view towards harbour. Breakfast was tasty with lots of options. Hosts very friendly and accommodating (picked us up at the bus terminal and took us to the ferry in morning). Great stay.

I stayed in the double en-suite. Nice size of room, big storage cupboard along with bathroom and comfy bed. When I e-mailed about check in times, I got the offer of a lift from the ferry port, which I accepted. When I got there, and when passing, Nikki and Brent invited me to sit with them to chat about my holiday, and find out about each other. They even sat down with me for breakfast, as I was the only guest there. Was nice having them to speak to. They could not have done enough for me, and I would not hesitate to stay there again. Wish there were more B&B owners like Nikki and Brent

Fantastic hosts and an warm and immaculate setting. We happened to be there when one of the most recent recent reviewers "redwood fan" showed up. From what we saw the host handled the situation diplomatically as the guest had misrepresented who was to be staying at the property. The view from our room was spectacular and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at Sounds. They offered so many extra special touches. It was the best B&B that we stayed at in NZ.

After a very delayed arrival, I was warmly greeted and taken care of like a VIP. The couple who own the place made me so very welcome and at home. I felt very special. The room I was given was just wonderful. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and it was so lovely and warm I slept a solid eight hours. But that wasn't the only great thing about this B&B, having my own bathroom was sensational and the show was so soft it was like being rained on with flower petals, I could've stayed in the shower all night! They were so friendly and easy to talk to and couldn't have made me feel any more comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, fresh and yummy! I would definitely have stayed longer if I'd had the time. It's a little confusing trying to find it but well worth the effort. Super close to the town centre and ferry terminal.

Had the pleasure of staying at Brent and nikki's wonderful B&B. nothing was too much trouble for Nikki during our stay. We stayed in room 1 which was superb in every way. Lovely big comfy bed, walk in wardrobe to the side and the most amazing bathroom with a fab walk in shower. Breakfast was very well presented with plenty of choice, even had the pleasure of Nikki sitting down sharing breakfast with us. Our only disappointment was we didn't stay longer !!! But hey that was our fault !! Do stay here if you get the chance, you will not be disappointed. Many thanks Nikki for a wonderful stay. Terry & jo
