Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 December 2013

My wife and I stayed with Kim and Ian in Nov 2013, the stay was terrific. The location and standard of the motel was perfect. The rooms were big, well appointed and the views were 10/10. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Call them direct for a great deal

My family and I stayed in this gorgeous motel for four nights in October. Couldn't fault it.

* Amazing views of the harbour and township.

* Beautifully and tastefully decorated.

* Very clean & comfortable - bedding, heating, kitchenette..basically everything you could want.

* Kim and Ian were the perfect hosts. Very friendly. Nothing was a problem for them. My teenage son didn't want to come on a day trip over to Picton. Ian and Kim said they'd keep an eye on him. Our trip was delayed and we called Kim & Ian. They checked on him several times and offered money to buy him food. They couldn't do enough for us and gave us loads of suggestions on available attractions.

I would definitely stay at the Harbour View Motel again, no doubts about it.

Room Tip: All rooms face the harbour. They are all great.

Ian picked us up from the train station and provided a great overview of Picton as he drove us to the motel. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean, and attractive. We had a gorgeous view of the bay from our balcony. Kim let us use their laundry facilities because another guest was using the motel washer and dryer. Both Kim and Ian are friendly, kind, thoughtful, and helpful. They provided discount coupons for several of the restaurants in Picton. Ian took us to the ferry and couldn't have been more accommodating.

Room Tip: The entrance to the hotel is up a steep path. If you have trouble walking, you might want to select...

We stayed here for two nights and arrived very early, around 12:30pm, because the weather was so bad. We were welcomed by Kim and checked in straight away and offered help with our luggage. Kim gave us loads of information on Picton and suggested places for lunch & dinner. We were given discount coupons for a couple of places, including Cortado, a lovely bar/bistro. The hotel room was spotless, spacious and well equipped with excellent central heating. There was a large balcony with lovely views over the harbour. Thoroughly recommended.

This hotel deserves it's position of number 1 in Picton, it should be number 1 in New Zealand
Never before have I met a couple like Kim and Ian. They were the perfect hosts, lots of info and very kind people, nothing was too much trouble. Ian picked us up from the ferry and on the drive through Picton pointed out museums, eateries and where to pick up a boat trip.
The accommodation was immaculate, plenty of utensils and cutlery, bedding was top class and fluffy towels.
The apartment was light, airy and very comfortable. The view was spectacular, I could have spent hours just looking at it.
Breakfast was good value and delivered to our room when we requested it.
I wish Ian and Kim success in their enterprise, it was fabulous, thank you

Excellent location, views and cleanliness. Couldn't fault this accommodation. For this accommodation you get exactly what you pay for and it is worth every dollar. Everything within walking distance. Do yourself a favour and stay for a couple of nights to check out Picton and all its beauty.

Room Tip: Top floor has fantastic views of harbour, but rooms on lower level also have water views.

The top ranking is well deserved for this place. The rooms all have views of the harbor, they look recently renovated, and are clean. Each room has a kitchenette, too, so you can bring in food and cook it. Stove top, sink, glassware/plates, utensils, refrigerator in each room. There is a washing machine and dryer on site that you can use, too. Internet is free. The owner is really pleasant with lots of good tips for things to do. I highly recommend staying here.
