We had a great stay for two nights whilst we explored the wine region and then caught the ferry to the north island. The managers were very helpful and the room was immaculately presented and very well proportioned. We would stay here again.

As the final stop off on our roadie collecting our bosses new truck we stayed over in picton. We chose the harbour motel and man are we glad we did this. We were in room seven and we had amazing 180 degree views of picton and its beautiful harbour. The rooms would rival some 4 star hotels for setup and...

What can I say, I wish I had more time here. Very clean and comfortable. Large room with kitchen, very modern. GREAT VIEWS. Very friendly reception and great location. We walked easily to town. Parking was tight, but it was there and free. Free wifi. It was our anniversary and our tour agent arranged with the reception to surprise us...

We walked from the Interislander ferry terminal, with only hand luggage - no big suitcases - a flat walk except for the entrance to the motel which is steep but not long! Received a warm welcome from the owner Noddy, and were able to check-in even though it was before official check-in time of 2pm. Much appreciated! NZ-style motel including...

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. The harbour view is amazing. The property was spotlessly clean with a good well equipped kitchen. The rooms are spacious and ours had two big easy chairs in which to relax and enjoy the view. Hosts are welcoming and friendly. Stay here....it's great!!!

Nice Location, Relaxing rooms, friendly owners. All in all a nice trip with the accomadation being a bonus, Noddy was friendly from the moment I stepped out if the car, he presented the room along with a bottle of Green or Blue top milk was warm and inviting from the moment we arrived. Highly recommend.

This hotel is situated up a small hill overlooking the Picton Harbour and just steps from downtown. Our room was very, clean, roomy and a view to die for. This hotel is a great value and I appreciated the clothesline in the back as well.

We booked late and ended up getting what I think was the main suite room first left (the original reception area) which had a fabulous view to the harbor and a lovely little deck from which to enjoy it. This was really like a small appartment with 3 rooms, a lounge area and a great kitchenette with oven, large fridge...
