This cosy motel in the centre of Picton is great value. The room was very comfortable and spacious, the staff were friendly and helpful and they even looked after our luggage for the day after we checked out. You couldn't ask for a better location.

We had a really great stay in Picton. The motel was really central, being surrounded by the night life so we didn't have to walk far to find food and a drink. The bed we had was really comfy so we had a good night's sleep. We had an elderly relative with us but it wasn't a problem because the... More

This place is perfectly located a short distance from where the boats stop, walking distance from a good pub meal, met some very entertaining locals, the rooms are on the small side but are clean and over all suitable for an over night stay. Loved the host puppies.

We rode up walked in at 4:30pm. We had just completed a trip around the South Island . So we were looking a little rough. This wasn't a problem. We got room #1. Yes the motel is dated. I can remember staying there many many years ago. The motel is small and the new owners are doing a great job... More

We stayed here after seeing photos online; it looked really nice. The room was very small, though quite well appointed. The floors had not been vacuumed before we arrived (the rug had bits all over it) and it was freezing cold. It didn't look anything like the pictures online; everything looked half-finished. The pillows were the most uncomfortable things we'd... More

We stayed here at the end of March. The motel is small as are the rooms, but you can't beat the location or the hospitality. Right on the heart of the main street with shops and restaurants on the doorstep. Less than a 5 minute drive (and probably only a 10 minute walk) to the ferry terminal. We had a... More

Booked this on line, paid more than price on outside board. Room had a comfortable bed and some new décor features but that could not make up for the fact that it was unbelievably small. We had to put our suitcases on the two chairs then move them to the bed when we wanted to sit. We were later told... More

Lovely little place with new hosts who are doing everything they can to upgrade their new business. Lovely people with very sweet dogs and a brand new kitten (at the time we were there). Very warm, relaxed atmosphere right in the heart of the town. Nothing was too much trouble and we highly recommend it. Would definitely stay again.

Picton is lovely, and this will be a great little motel, but a way to go yet. Good on you to the couple who have taken it on and their gorgeous dogs! But I don't think we got value for money. A very small room at a greater cost than our rooms in Ibis Wellington and Mecure Queenstown. Clean and... More
