    Kia Ora! The Villa is a very good hostel located right in the heart of Picton. You’ll find friendly staff, a relaxed vibe, and all the amenities needed during your stay. Perfect for a nights stay before or after a trip across the Cooks Strait. However, it can prove very homely if needed to stay for longer term while travelling on a gap year. Big thank you to Sylvie and Rob they make the Villa an amazing place to “make yourself at home”.

    Quirky place to stay. Very comfy bed. Great facilities and simple breakfast Included. Easy walking distance into Picton, Only down side is that it’s located close to the railway line and if you are a light sleeper it could wake you up. Otherwise would definitely recommend!

    We expected budget accommodation but were disappointed with the run down facilities. A bit of elbow grease and some less than thread bare sheets and a laundered duvet plus an upgraded shower block would go a long way to making it look like the photos. Old Christmas tree and demolition material around the side of the house need to be removed. Has loads of potential.
