arrived late, the host had warmed the room up for us, advised us were to eat which was good.
only stayed one night which was unfortunate as we didn't get to see the best of the area. This motel was in Waikawa Bay so very quiet and views to die for. The room was a good size and the bathroom was a great size. we will stay there again and next time arrive early to enjoy the views.

Room Tip: nice and quiet good sleep

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your motel and still regret it was only for one night. Next time we are in Picton, you will see us again!

We stayed 3 nights at this motel, just a short distance from Picton. The surroundings were more peaceful and the view of Waikawa Bay from our unit was a delight to wake up to, or to contemplate over a glass of wine as the sun set. The accommodation was comfortable and spacious enough, with a separate bedroom. Our hosts were most welcoming and helpful in regard to local attractions. Excellent value and we would stay there again if we are in the area.

We were planning to stay just two nights, but in the end spent four nights at this wonderful motel in the magnificent Marlborough Sounds.
The drive into and back from town (where just about everything is happening) was a little annoying at times, but on the other hand the location was really relaxed and quiet with none of the bustling of downtown. The views over the sound were simply stunning, we experienced several beautiful sunsets happening right in front of our window.
The staff was tremendously friendly and helpful, always inquiring about our adventures and suggesting things to do. Kitchen and bathroom where well equipped, modern and functional.
All in all a thoroughly recommendable motel. The one downside was the patchy Wifi reception in the lower units where we were located.

It really was all about the location. Stayed for 4 nights in a lovely little unit overlooking the sweeping lawn down to the water.There are only 7 units so it was very quiet and everything that we needed was provided. Very 80's decor but very very homely - great staff especially Lurline who could not help enough with recommendations as to where to go, what to see and so on.
All in all a very enjoyable stay away from the city.

Stayed for four nights, would have liked to enjoy the view much longer, which every unit has. Well appointed rooms, lovely host and one of the best seafood restaurants ever in walking distance (Spinnaker). Tipp: Do the Dolphin Watch Eco-Tour Cruise! .
