This motel offers great amenities and incredible views of the Sounds. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment that had a great look out from the terrace and living area looking out over the grass down to the waterfront. Look forward to visiting again.

Great place to stay, we especially enjoyed our own space with our little one were he could run after ducks on the front lawn and not disturb others too much when indoors. Very polite and welcoming people, that made our time in Picton relaxing.

Just a short drive from Picton, this is a real 'find'. The views from the lawned area are worth coming for. The units are very well equipped and immaculate. The managers do everything they can to be helpful. We'll be back soon.

We could not have found a more pleasant and relaxing place if we had tried. A great place to relax before crossing on the ferry after three weeks of driving a vintage car. The operators were very helpful and understanding as we had had a few issues with the cars. Thanks for a great night. PS. The crashed vintage car... More

We stayed for 3 nights during mid January. The location and views are second to none. We could not ask for a better place to spend a family holiday. The unit was modern and spacious, clean and tidy and the staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. This motel ticks all the boxes, it simply cannot be beaten. ...very friendly... More
