“very enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

This motel came highly recommended to us, by a B&B owner that we stayed with and we were not disappointed. Ian was very friendly and welcoming, from the moment we arrived, giving us helpful recommendations about the local area. We stayed on the top floor and enjoyed the stunning views over Picton Harbour. It was so handy to be able to do our laundry on site after a couple of weeks travelling. We were near enough to the beautiful Marlborough Wine area to enjoy several gorgeous lunches and dinners at stunning wineries. We hope to return one day.

Lovely spacious room and very clean and quiet. Friendly and informative hosts. Great views of a really gorgeous location. Take your Marlborough purchases out onto the deck for the best South Island sundowners! Close to everything. Make sure you walk out to Bob's Bay.

Loved our stay at Harbour View Motel. Ian & Kim were so friendly and helpful without being intrusive in any way. The complimentary pick-up from the Railway station was greatly appreciated and Ian gave us a great commentary of the main points of Picton on the way to the Motel. The rooms are modern, clean and very well equipped with a great view of the Marina. Everything is in easy reach of the Motel, including the ferry and cruise terminals, restaurants and a 7 day grocery store. We would definitely recommend Harbour View Motel.

On the back of other excellent reviews on Tripadvisor we booked 2 nights at the Harbour View Motel and we were not disappointed.

The room had a fantastic view over Picton Harbour - we left the curtains open at night and watched the ferries come and go while nodding off. The balcony is also a good size and sheltered and private.

The room facilities were fantastic - everything you could need - and it was extremely clean and tidy. (We had a room in the upper terrace). The large bathroom was well stocked with towels and basics such as shower-wash and hair-wash. The make-up towel is a neat idea, although I found the make-up remover ineffective (not a problem if you travel with your own!).

Kim was extremely helpful and flexible during our booking, and Ian was informative and eager to help us make the most of our short visit to Picton.

When we do find ourselves back in this lovely town, we shall certainly be staying at this venue.

Room Tip: The top terrace of rooms have the best views - they are only slightly more expensive but worth it.

Firstly I was impressed with the size of the rooms and the views from our room were superb, we only stayed two nights but wish we could have stayed longer. Walk to town and restaurants 5 minutes walk and ferries leaving for the Sound. Our biggest thanks to the hosts nothing too much trouble for them both. very peaceful and quiet 5 star place to stay, great value for money

Room Tip: try get the top room worth the walk just for the views, but every room does have harbour view

What a great place to stay, fantastic views over Picton Harbour an easy stroll to town and later to the ferry if required. The rooms were spacious and well laid out with everything you will need for your stay. From the time we arrived until the time we left nothing was too much trouble for the great hosts, sending us to Loch Mara Lodge for the day and even dropping us at the ferry at 0645 in the morning. I have rarely stayed at a motel where everything has been perfect now I have.

Room Tip: All rooms have views across the harbour

Excellent hosts, outstanding views, great location. Our room was spacious and contained all the necessary amenities for a truly pleasant stay. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good night's rest. Ian kindly provided us with a transfer to the water taxi, and we really appreciated this as it saved us from having to drag our bags to the waterfront. We will definitely return to the Harbour View Motel when we next visit Picton, and will recommend it to anyone who intends to stay in Picton.
