We booked one of the refurbished studio units over Xmas break. It was a lovely comfortable sleep, clean and affordable. The location is top notch we walked everywhere . The new owners were very friendly and flexible with our requests. Will stay again.

From what it looked like to how it looks now....AWESOME - New owners have done a wonderful job revamping, loved the Kiwiawana Prints, its clean, affordable, and the bed was comfortable, had a great sleep. Awesome location right by the beach and shops. I'd book again and recommend to others

Great stay friendly staff and owners made us welcome we felt like family, clean tidy accomadation at a reasonable cost. New owners are doing a fantastic job and I appreciate as one should that things take time and money and I believe what has been done in the 5 months of owning has made a vast improvement on what was there previously I would book again and recommend to others they even took us fishing!!!!

We booked a "studio unit" with "en suite".
Quite simply it was terrible. The en suite was a joke.
The room with twin singles then didn't allow room for any table or bench of any sort.
No provision at all for washing any dishes. The note simply said to leave used dishes in container provided.
I have since spoken to the new management who nearly apologised.
Sorry but that was our experience, I have no idea what the other rooms may have been like.

LouPR2013, Owner at High Street Living Motel, responded to this review, 25 January 2014
Louise and I have now owned our Motels for five months and in this time we have met hundreds of people from all walks of life requiring many different needs.
We live on site and are very approachable people, also we have had great comments from our customers. Although we haven't finished the refurbishment of all our units we pride ourselves on having clean and tidy accommodation at an affordable price.
I am very disappointed that a very small number of our guests feel that they didn't get what was expected and instead of discussing with us on arrival when we could do something about there concerns they use this forum to complain . All feedback is appreciated and enables us to supply the best experience we can offer within the parameters of our motel.
We wish to thank all the great guests we have met in the short time we have been here and look forward to meeting many more!

Kind Regards
Paul

We booked a "studio with en suite bathroom & small kitchenette" what we got was a very small room with a fridge in one corner, microwave balanced on top of it; small cupboard containing crockery etc with kettle & toaster. All the electrical appliances plugged in to ancient extension leads and if we tried to use the kettle & toaster at the same time the fuse blew. The bathroom was also ancient and had the most feeble shower I've ever come across. We travelled round New Zealand for 7 weeks and this was the only place where we felt we were ripped off.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else!

This was a little disappointing for the price. Very small studio room. Motel could do with a face lift and the bathroom was quite out dated.
However, lovely and clean so that was appreciated, as was the friendly, helpful service.

We arrived in Picton without any reservation and found out that the whole town was pretty much booked out... Then we came across High Street Living and saw a volkswagen campervan which they rented out. We ended up staying there and had a great experience! The owners are SO friendly and we could even shower in one of the hotelrooms where people checked out of. These people will go out of their way for you!
