8/10 Very good

Nice boutique hotel.
Nice little boutique hotel. We booked the studio without looking at the details. The owners disclosed its limitations immediately upon arrival and offered options. We decided to keep it and it worked fine. The graciously allowed us to put food in the community kitchen. The pool was lovely! A perfect temperature and in pretty gardens. Owner was very diligent in checking in to ensure we were happy. Enjoyed a game of Scrabble in the evening and a pleasant breakfast in the morning.

6/10 Good

The 2 drawbacks i have were: 1) 4 post bed was made up of a small box spring underneath a larger mattress. The result being the mattress hanging over the sides into space. Very uncomfortable to sleep with 2 people. 2) Toilet paper came in a large industrial roll that tore easily making it difficult to access. Everything else was great.

Bob and Glenda couldn't be more welcoming, helpful or friendlier. The unit was immaculate and very easy to find and a short distance from town. I would thoroughly recommend Palmira Lodge if you were visiting Picton for any length of stay.

4/10 Fair

Right from when i walked in i felt uncomfortable with the host. We didnt want to stay but it was nonrefundable. The motel was beautifully clean and modern but i felt the host was very rude. She asked me if i was vaccinated and when i said no she told me i was naughty for not being vaccinated. I had to bite my tongue and ignore her comment. In our room there was a queen size bed and a single size bed. When the lady took me up to our room she said "dont use that bed" and pointed to the single bed. We didnt use the bed but as far as im concerned we paid for the room we can use the bed if we want. The main reason i also chose this motel was because you were provided breakfast. When we went to have it, there was two choices of cereal and then a container with bread and croissants in it. We were going to have toast but there were only jams and marmalades. No peanut butter or marmite. Very disappointed in our stay. We will not be going back and we will definitely not be recommending to others to stay there.
