Janet picked us from the train station when we arrived from Christchurch and took us on a trip to her favorite sites for viewing the harbor. We were then taken up the hills where the sea became bluer and bluer. From there we went "home" to the Anchor Down B&B, which is a warm and snug place to stay. We were tired from the train ride but visited restaurants and grocery stores a few blocks away and returned with dinner. The next day we had a wonderful breakfast and were taken to the Interisland Ferry. We were both sorry we had only scheduled one day for Picton as it lovely and Janet and Ian such good hosts.

We loved our stay at Ian’s and Janet’s. They are very friendly and welcoming hosts. Ian picked us up at the Ferry Terminal and gave us a quick tour of town before showing us into the Green Room, our getaway for the night. The spotlessly clean room has a comfy bed, beautiful bathroom with upscale toiletries and plush towels, a kitchenette area with fridge, microwave and dishware. We bought food at the nearby grocery store and heated it up & ate in our room. Before dinner, we enjoyed a drink in the beautiful garden. Very relaxing. Breakfast the next morning was varied and delicious. We went sightseeing around Picton and Ian very kindly met us at the bus station area with our luggage later on. Our only regret is that we didn’t plan to stay more than one night. We had to cut our travels short and return back to Canada due to COVID-19. If we ever get back to NZ we will definitely stay here again and plan more time to see the area.

The Anchor Down bed and breakfast was a warm and friendly place to stay with happy, fun people running the place. It's Janet and Ian's home. Janet picked my husband and me up from the Interislander ferry in the evening and gave us a little tour of the town. We slept well in comfy beds. Each morning either Janet or Ian would make a delicious breakfast, one morning we had freshly made corn fritters with yogurt and peaches from their tree. The next morning was pancakes with lemon curd. The Anchor Down is right in the heart of town within walking distance of the harbor, restaurants, bakery, grocery store, town shops, and hiking trails. We were surprised to share breakfast and conversation with a famous cinematographer one morning and the next a road biker touring the South Island. The Anchor Down rooms were fastidiously clean and well-appointed. We highly recommend this B & B!

We enjoyed our short stay at the Anchor Down B&B of Janet and Ian very much. After a beautiful ferry trip from Wellington and a 500 meter drive to the house, we immediately received a feeling home by the warm welcome of Janet. The suggestion for dinner at Oxley we took and didn’t regret. Perfectly cooked fresh fish. We also enjoyed the walk through Picton harbour, which is at short distance of the B&B. Later that night a relaxing stay in the Green room with a green tea. After a perfect night of sleep, the shared breakfast table with the other four guests was delightful, so was the freshly prepared food. In short: a perfect stay. Also thanks for the underway suggestions for our drive to Abel Tasman park. Thumps up for Janet and Ian’s B&B.
