“Wouldn't stay again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Just been looking at other peoples reviews & wondered if the same place! It is! Maybe reception ?'supervisor'? Having a bad day. Hospitality not her thing on our visit, very efficient though. Rooms clean & nicely furnished ( modern & comfortable) AND very poorly designed. We were 2 couples, couldn't fit our cases (medium size) nor cabin luggage (1bag ea) all, in either the king room or the twin bed room. Almost impossible to walk past beds in twin room. Not possible to shut outside light out, curtains lovely & thick, but short w high windows, light streams beneath. All living area lights paired which meant wherever someone sat on lovely lounges to watch tv, light straight in front of your view. Bathroom lovely. Balcony privately fenced & tiny, saw into others rooms, sideways, but the man next door & I startled each other in morning! View to harbour good. Restaurant excellent, with good service & views.

Room Tip: Do not share, regardless of number of bedrooms, bring eye mask for sleeping.

Stayed at this hotel as a part of a large party. We found the hotel pleasant with lovely views from the rooms balcony. The facilities were good and the friendly family service excellent. Dinner was a buffet style and was of a good standard. Similarly breakfast was

Words fail us to express our immense pleasure on all levels of service at the Beachcomber Inn, Picton, New Zealand.
The breakfast's are so generous, fresh and faultless..
The Staff are so pleased to go the extra mile..
The "quality" of room presentation is up there on a global scale of excellence!

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best) we rate Beachcomber Inn a 11.99 (and that's just the Staff!)..

AWESOME goes somewhere near the right word

Regards
John & Frances

spent two days here and could not be more happy, my room overlooked the harbor with a balcony all to myself. the food in the restaurant was excellent followed up by great customer service. The rooms were absolutely spotless well stocked with tea, coffee and milk. If you want a place to just chill with a good bottle of wine then this is it.

Stayed at the Beachcomber for one night before walking Queen Charlotte Track, and again on coming back into Picton 5 days later. On coming back the receptionist even remembered my name! And I'm not that exceptional.
Lovely comfy clean rooms with modern furniture and fittings, good bed and great pillows. Great bathroom. Would have been hot in the room as it faced west without the massive fan - so thank you for that!
Glorious views from every room, and downstairs has the extra bonus of soft grass outside the balcony. Just great for sore over worked feet.

Didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on that. Heaps of cafes a couple of minutes away, so that didn't matter to me.

My only negative - no privacy on the little balconies, but not really important in the scheme of things.

Room Tip: All rooms great, but downstairs ones have lovely grass to walk on.

Nice welcome at reception when we arrived. Clean rooms, fantastic spa bath. Lovely views across the bay. Local to bars and shops

Mini bar bit expensive. Would have been helpful to have free wifi.

Enjoyed our stay very much.

We had a great stay in Picton at the Beachcomber Inn. Very nice rooms - big and spacious. Nice and modern decor. Clean and nice bathroom. Access to a garden (grass) area with two chairs. Nice little pool although quite cold :) All in all a great stay. Good value for money.
