absolutely fantastic set up and service. they really go the extra mile for you. They were able to organise shuttles for us to get too and from the footy ground and let us know all of the good watering holes in town.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the hotel owner. We were then taken to an off-site location with a room with stunning views of the harbor. It was clean and very homey. The motel is within walking distance of restaurants the harbor. Great experience.

I stayed here for the weekend and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The view from the room was amazing. The room itself was comfortable and looked good but it was the owners that were the highlight. They were approachable, helpful and really went above and beyond.

staff were friendly and very helpful. Upgraded us to the closer accommodation when we booked the offsite apartments for no extra cost. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful view of the harbour. Heating was perfect. Access to sky channels and rooms was very roomy even though we stayed only one night. Short walk to Main Street and restaurants nearby. Would highly...

Really really good stay here! Arrived after a long days traveling, and was so grateful to be upgraded to a amazingly spacious and clean room up the top of the complex. Everything was very clean and comfortable. This place was a steal for the price I paid! Lovely views over Picton and the Marina. Nice to watch the ferries coming...

Stayed here after arriving on the midnight ferry. Very helpful owners as the owners made it very easy for us to find our room and get in. The room was huge and very comfortable as well as spotless. The amazing bonus was the view we had when we pulled the curtains back. As it was a ferry port I was...

We really appreciated our two night stay, before and after our Queen Charlotte tramp. We had a big, clean, comfortable room with a small kitchen, and balcony that overlooked the harbour, and free WI FI. Inexpensive coin op laundry is near the office. Kim, the owner, generously picked us up and dropped us off at the ferry, offered to keep...

Great location overlooking the harbour and 5 minute walk to high street and foreshore eateries. Spacious studio unit with usable balcony. Very steep diveway but not an issue due to close proximity to everything that you could require. Picton is lit up like a Xmas tree at night which made darkening the room difficult.

We have stayed for one night before catching the ferry back to Wellington and room was nice and clean but had a bad smell of mould and wasn't warm enough. Toilet roll was almost finished though had a spare one on the shelves. Beds are quite comfy and got electric blankets which was very helpful with lack of heat in...

The photos of this motel appear to show a three storey establishment but it has been cleverly laid out so that each 'floor' is actually separate from the others. As a result there are no stairs and you can park outside your room. More importantly, almost all rooms have an excellent view of the harbour. The rooms are large and...
