“Wish we stayed longer!!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Picton is a beautiful town. Not too large, most things are within easy walking distance. We went on some incredible hikes. The hotel is just above town. The owners are great about picking you up and dropping you back off at the ferry. The apartment was gorgeous and very comfortable. We had a nice deck with a lovely view of the harbor. We really enjoyed it, I think you will too!!

Room Tip: Ask for a view! Some of the rooms are in a building a little lower with less of a view.

Do yourself a favor and don't just stay one night here. Kim and Ian are great hosts who make the stay wonderful by chatting extensively with you. They love having guests. Their motel is more like apartment living with a great harbour and marina view. The rooms are spotless and the size is perfect. I was able to do a quick load of laundry for $2 and use the drying line outside. Free phone calls locally and free internet which you won't find in large hotel chains. These folks do it right for their guests and it is so very much appreciated.. Fresh linens, sparkling clean room and bath areas. There is a very roomy deck with doors that open double wide for great airflow and views. Even the hill to walk up to our room would never deter me from returning and staying here again. This is a gem and lots of people are finding out about it. Great fees, great hosts who offer suggestions for where to visit or eat and it's right off where the Interislander dropped us off so we could see Harbourview while docking. That was pretty cool. The town is a perfect size with loads of great little shops, kind store owners and good music at the restaurants. Or you can go to the local grocery stores and stock up for your own meals at the motel. The bed was large and comfy. We had two nice size rocker recliners with a TV that we didn't really use but the recliners were very comfortable. We would have loved to stay longer to really see what Picton had to offer. Don't make that mistake. Stay here and enjoy it. It's really worth doing right. Lots of people want you to go right to Nelson but I say... check out Picton. We were heading south to Christchurch anyway so it didn't make sense for us to go west to Nelson then pass by Picton again the next day. One of the store owners told us about Ohau Point before Kaikoura, where the seal pups are left on the rocks and beaches while the parents hunt. You should check that out. It was a pretty neat sight to behold. Free internet available.

Room Tip: The motel has three levels. We were in room 11 on the top level and loved the view. It wasn't a...

My wife and I spent four nights there in Feb. 2014. An excellent motel choice in Picton for several reasons: moderately priced, convenient location (nothing is more than a 5 to 7 minute walk), clean modern rooms with a great balcony view of the harbor, fully furnished kitchenette, friendly and helpful staff. In short, just a very nice, very well-run motel.

Picton is scattered with a bunch of nice looking motels with balconies facing the bay. I guess the competition is stiff and that an extra effort is need. Our host couple in fact made their outmost to render our stay as nice as possible. We had a very comfortable top corner room with a nice shadowed balcony.

I can only really repeat previous reviews. The service was brilliant - thanks to Kim and Ian for that - and the facilities were amazing. We stayed in the 3 bedroom/2 batchroom apartment and it was excellent value with a great location, it's just a shame we weren't staying longer to take advantage of it all - and the great views - "chillaxing" at its very best.

Would stay here again without hesitation.

Our top floor room had the most stunning view over the harbour and into the Sound. Well appointed rooms well serviced and the ideal stopover prior to boarding the ferry to the North Island of NZ. Easy walk into town for food and or drinks as well as the surrounding harbour and marina. The reclining chairs are a great addition to the room!
