We were made to feel at home the moment we walked through the door. Janet and Ian were brilliant hosts and provided great conversation and excellent local knowledge to help us plan our limited time in Picton. The room we had was beautifully decorated, quiet and had a separate entrance which also led into a delightful terraced garden. The location was just a 5 minute walk to the harbour and some really nice restaurants and shops. Highly recommended and we would definitely go back.
We loved everythingI. The location is great, close to Picton center, however, far enough to be quite. Easy 5 minute walk. Janet and Ian were the best host we've encountered. Immediately made us feel at hone. Help us plan our time in Picton, all great recommendations. They also help us plan the remainder of our holiday. They are extremely knowledgeable about the entire south island. All in all a fabulous stay.
Nothing to say here- we loved it all!
Janet and Ian were wonderful Hosts. The Best Bacon & Eggs we had on our trip thanks to our Chef Ian, wish we had more time here.
Great location for the ferry and the surrounding area. Great room, lovely hosts, yummy breakfast and above all it was spotless. Couldn't have been better!
It is quit and good place, a place for tranquility . I like all the facilities and also enjoy my breakfast .also had good sleep warm room nice shower enjoying the view
If you want to stay in a really clean and friendly place where you can connect with the local culture and feel like you are welcome, look no further , this is it.

Friendly hosts. Coffee on arrival and excellent breakfast
Great hosts - and a great place
The hosts, janet and Ian were very generous, picking us up at the ferry terminal and taking us to the car hire place. They also were helpful in telling us about great places to visit on our trip, and welcomed us royally! We would definitely stay at Anchor Down again.
Very friendly and helpful. Central & easy walk to Picton centre except. Developing lovely terraced gardens.
immediate access steep
great place to stay
Janet and Ian are excellent hosts - very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The glass of local wine each evening was great! The B and B is just a short walk from the harbour with lots of cafes and shops. Janet's recommendation for local restaurants was spot on, and we followed her advice and took the long way (via Queen Charlotte's Drive) to Blenheim - fantastic road!
Accommodation very clean and very well presented. Friendly welcome and fantastic breakfast.
Great room, delicious breakfast, fantastic hosts.
We were welcomed with an informal meet and greet including other guests complete with an excellent cider! Great breakfasts and hosts who were willing to go the extra mile
Only one negative. The shower next door was loud enough to wake us up. Maybe some additional wall insulation would sort this out.
Great hosts, fabulous breakfast with wonderful view. Home from home! Perfect location near town/ferry
having to leave after only 2 days!
It was all I needed
None need mentioning
The hosts are very friendly and helpful!! I really enjoyed staying there and I wish I come back in Picton and stay with them again!! I highly reccommend this place to everyone!!!
What a friendly welcome from the hosts! We loved the place and the room. Nice backyard area if you want to have quiet time outside. Great breakfast... What to say?... we just enjoyed our stay much. this will be our reference place for Picton!
We liked the free wifi and free parking. This B&B is close to town, you can easily walk. The hosts are very friendly and breakfast has good choices for everybody.
The athmosphere felt a bit outdated (furniture etc). The bed was ok, not brilliant. The room itself had little view outside as it was on a lower ground floor, next to the garage.
