We stayed a night before catching the early morning ferry. The kids had their own loft room with tv which went down well with them. Very clean and well presented motel, very comfortable beds and nice and roomy. Great location just a short walk to the waterfront and across the road from the supermarket. Great value for money.

We stayed here for a few days and the motel is about a ten minute walk from the ferry and has the main supermarket across the road which is a real bonus. We had a room on the ground floor by the stairs for the rooms above. The room was nicely presented, clean, and serviced daily but we struggled to...

At first glance the room seemed fine. We had a wide parking spot (free) so we were happy. The kitchenette in the room had all the essentials needed for a quick meal. We were provided with tea, coffee, milk, etc. The wifi was fast and free. So far so good but when the neighbours arrived we could not sleep until...

We arrived hours before 2pm check in on a wild, wet day. Most accommodating and friendly hosts let us have our room. Couldn't fault the room, service or location. Would definitely stay again. Free DVDs, free wifi, supermarket across road, quiet.

This motel is quite close to the Picton Ferry Terminal, maybe about 2 minutes by car. One would think that the traffic must be terrible but it is not the case. The street is quiet and also another 2 minutes or so to the waterfront area where there are a lot of restaurants. There are also 2 supermarkets close by....

We stayed here over Labour weekend and it was warm and clean. The beds are comfortable with good quality sheets and well made each day. The bathroom is well appointed and the kitchen well stocked.

We rang the motel very early the day before our arrival to explain that because of a heavy fall of snow overnight, we were unwilling to drive in the very dangerous conditions, especially as a severe storm warning had been issued by the Weather Office advising people to stay off the roads. We had booked and paid for the motel...
