The Moorings Apartments
Ranked #17 of 27 Speciality Lodging in Picton
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Its tricky to find and you have to check in at the hotel next door, but these apartments are awesome. I could live in this apartment. Layout was great, lovely decor and sittings and absolutly glorious view of the harbour. These apartments are right in the thick of it, but we didnt find them loud. You neednt look any further for a great place to stay in Picton.

Terrific apartment. Very modern and clean. Overlooks the carpark at the marina but there was no extra noise. In town and obviously close to cruise boats. Would definitely stay again. Also has use of an outdoor heated pool at the hotel next door. You need to check into the apartments at hotel next door as well. There is no separate reception for the apartments.

This 2 bedroom aptment #5 was very central with amazing views over harbour - split over 2 levels so no good for those who cannot get about around stairs.

Furniture and apartment is great for families as showing its use and marks about the place which need a good steam clean - our duvet was stained and whole place could do with a spruce up and spring clean.

Lovely modern apartment with modern appliances is fab also.

Does not have wifi which is not convenient at all and only internet service offered from next door is a very expensive option.

Room Tip: Need to book in at Mercure hotel in front for room keys.

This is the amongst the best accommodation in my 2 weeks in south island. Part of the mecure hotels group. The apartment is 2 story high right smack in picton city center. Cost only around $240 for a night with 2 bedrooms. Large and excellent unblock harbor view. Can use mecure swimming pool too. Book it! I am very sure you will not regret. My whole family loved it!

My husband and I stayed at the Moorings while on our honeymoon. We wish we could have stayed longer in Picton! We were a little wary of booking with them since no one else had reviewed it, but we were pleasantly surprised.

You actually check in at the hotel right in front of the Moorings, which was a bit confusing. We drove around a while because we didn't see a Moorings sign - instead, look for The Mercure Hotel. They will give you your keys.

We got apartment #5, which is a two-level, two bedroom/two bath apartment. It is nicely furnished and has an awesome view of the harbor. We took advantage of both the balconies (on the first and second floors). This would be an awesome place for families. The second bedroom had its own full bath and two twin beds. There is also a full kitchen stocked with dishes, so cooking in and having a bottle of wine on the balcony would be a great idea!

The location couldn't be better. It is located right in the middle of Picton, within walking distance of nice little shops and restaurants. It's also an easy walk to the ferry terminal for those who are leaving for or arriving from Wellington. Even in the midst of the city, we had no trouble with noise. We slept like babies.

Overall, a great choice for couples, families, or a group of friends. We will be back!

Room Tip: Go the grocery store and stay in one night - the apartments offer a full kitchen. We would have love...
