#13 of 35 Speciality lodging in Picton
Located a short distance from the Waikawa Marina in the beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound, the Buccaneer Lodge offers spacious, modern, en-suite rooms with a balcony that makes the most of the outlook. So after an adventurous day walking the Queen Charlotte Track or maybe kayaking in the sounds, sit and enjoy a cold glass of local Sauvignon Blanc while taking in the peaceful marina and sea views. The Buccaneer Lodge is owner operated and is a warm, friendly, comfortable home away from home. Located close to local walks, restaurant, cafe, bar and safe swimming beach in beautiful Waikawa Bay.

What a lovely place ! The greeting from Bob and Glenda was warm and genuine, so we were instantly made to feel at home. Our studio room on the ground floor was adjacent to the lounge and breakfast room (brekkie is included in the rate) and it was ideal for our overnight stay. Note that it doesn't have a TV, but who needs that anyway ? The walls of the lounge area are adorned with pictures of zebras and suits the decor and overall setting of the lodge. Out the front are a spa and a swimming pool, both of which are cleaned on a weekly basis. Palmira is a nice place and certainly worthy of a repeat visit one day.

I could see her face change when I said my partner (female) was in the car. She then came into the room in the morning with her man friend and accused us of having other people in the room. Nothing of the sort. So disgusted. We were accosted at 7am accusing us of running some kind of brothel. Over two hours before our checkout and with no one in the room at all. Her and her husband were very interested about my gf and I. We know we are good looking but this is over the top. Small town NZ is still so close minded. Shame. Picton is a cute town.

We had complaints from our other guests that were staying with us and next to these girls, our other guests complained about the amount of men that came to there room, and the foul language also the drinking and smoking, stubbing cigarettes out all over the balcony, and throwing them around the pool area with bottles, going on to the early hours in the morning .Some of our guests were so shocked they could not wait to leave. I told them that i would report them to the Booking agency, and banned them from our place,

I have stayed for two nights at Palmira Lodge and can recommend it. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and with everything you need. Bed comfortable. Breakfast is good and there are facilities to cook for yourself if you want. BBQ hot tub and swimming pool outside. A car is needed if you want to easily get down to Picton but it is near Waikawa marine. Had a very nice meal at the Jolly Roger there as recommended by Bob. A very welcoming place.

The Palmira Lodge is situated a little bit further out of town than we had hoped however it is only a 5min drive. The room we stayed in was small but clean, the bed soft. Unfortunately no aircon made the room stuffy on a humid day and little airflow through the room as it opened up to a common thoroughfare. The breakfast supplies were basic - but a good start to the day especially being able to chat with others about their travels. Overall value for money is good and the hosts very amenable.

Best value for money during our entire trip. Glenda and Bob are terrific hosts. Glenda’s flare for decor is evident and Bob’s work making the pool & spa area look enticing works a treat. The room was beautifully furnished, as was the living area. It was lovely to meet the friendly hosts but also some of the guests. The place is very clean and has so many extras such as pool towels, chocolates, very good breakfast supplies, free wifi, comfortable bedding, close to waterfront ( better than being in Picton) and a lovely ambiance. Would highly recommend = 5 stars !!
