“Lovely view and cosy place to stay in”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Friendly owners picked us up from the ferry terminal and settled us in our room. He also gave us a tip that we can request the restaurants and they would make a special vegetarian dish for us. And Le Cafe close by really did!
The view from our room was great! But the water pressure in the shower was not up to the mark. But if I visit Picton again, I will stay here:)

Room Tip: The room on top has the best view!

Beautifully appointed room with stunning views of the harbour, Kim and Ian were so friendly and helpful which as a lone female of a certain age travelling on her own for the first time was much appreciated. Would highly recommend and if I am ever back in picton this is where I will stay.

We were two couples travelling together and Kim offered to upgrade us to the 3 bedroom apartment just down the road from the main Motel. Wow what a great location and the apartment was just beautiful with lots of room and lovely outlook of the harbour. We had the town and all we needed right underneath us so was perfect. Would highly recommend.

What a great find! The rooms were modern, very clean, and comfortable. The leather couch was awesome! Great views of Picton and the water. Picton itself was a very nice town- fun to walk around and great restaurants. Wish we would have stayed here longer to explore a little more. Would definitely stay here again.

Clean and well maintained property in Picton. Easy walking distance to harbor attractions, cbd, and walking tracks in reserve. We had studio with kitchenette that was quite serviceable for needs, well equipped. View of beautiful harbor from floor to ceiling window was stunning, I believe all their rooms have this. Recommended.

We stayed at the Harbour view from 13th - 17th March. Some people may stay for just a night or two, using the ferry or walking Queen Charlotte's track. We stayed four nights and enjoyed it very much

There was a problem with the ferry, as a result we had to modify our previously booked dates in the hotel. Kim was always most accommodating and provided us with lots of information before we even arrived.
The hotel is a ten minute walk from the Interislander ferry, a bit more from the Bluebridge but Kim or Ian are happy to collect or deliver you to the ferry if required.

It is less than a five minute walk to the restaurants and shops in Picton.

The room we had was certainly big enough for us with a balcony that looked out over the harbour.
The accommodation was good and consisted of a shower room / toilet. A small kitchen area with microwave, fridge, sink and hob. The main space was a bedroom with a table and chairs for breakfast etc. it had a television and access to the balcony, with another table and more chairs. All was kept clean and tidy every day.

The office / reception had loads of information about activities in the surrounding area, I think Kim would have booked things for us if we had asked.

We would definitely stay again if we were visiting the area or using the ferry.

The access to the property is quite steep, did not cause us (pensioners) any problems but you need to be aware
