Amazing views over Kenepuru Sound
Posted Mar 12, 2016 on Hotels
I was a bit surprised when I turned up just before 7 pm and the reception was closed. But it was quickly re-opened for me, and I was checked in, getting an immaculate room with a king-size bed and an amazing view over Kenepuru Sound (quite a bit nicer than the room I had booked!). Dinner in the restaurant was OK; not amazing, but not bad - and the dessert was quite good. What really stood out was the sunset over the Sound, which was absolutely spectacular. There were buffet and cooked breakfast options in the morning, which were perfectly decent, with tasty home-made jams. Overall, a nice stay in a fantastic location.
If you are driving, be aware that it takes longer than expected from Picton: the road is narrow and windy. Good access to Queen Charlotte Track, and other walks like the Mount Stokes track.
