“Delightful small hotel”
Reviewed 12 March 2007

As part of a bus tour of New Zealand we were booked into The Beachcomber Inn at Picton. What a delight ! We were lucky enough to be allocated one of their updated rooms (I believe they are working through the whole building). Our bedroom was very stylish, comfortable and had a huge sliding picture window which overlooked the harbour. What a view ! Picton itself was
lovely - after getting off the ship from Wellington across the
Cook straight it was very pleasant to walk around the harbourside and the Memorial gardens after dinner and bed
before setting out for a trip around the South Island. So
ask for a renovated room when booking.

Stayed February 2007

Reviewed 3 December 2006

We had not booked in advance and were lucky enough to walk in and get a room on the top (3rd) floor directly overlooking the harbour. The room was not fully equipped with toaster or plates as it has its own restaurant but a request to Reception resolved that. The room was large with a huge king bed and the wraparound balcony made up for the small bathroom with only a loo and bath. The hand basin was outside the door and also had to be used for washing cups but I understand from Reception that not all the rooms have the same layout as this. As we only wanted 1 night before catching the Interislander, we were more than content to put up with that inconvenience and admire the views from our balcony. The Beachcomber is in easy walking distance to the town and very convenient for the Interislander ferry.

This is a really lovely small hotel, stayed there in March 2005 and my room had recently been totally refurbished. It looked as if an interior decorator had been employed as the decor was very attractive indeed. Lovely bathroom and basin area. Views across the harbour towards Marlborough Sounds. Pleasant staff. All in all a nice place to stay. Not a lot to do in Picton itself but various shops to browse in. Picton is near to Marlborough wine country which has its obvious attractions !
