Top quality hotel room. We stayed in studio room on the ground level which opened up to a lovely grassed area and was a few steps to the swimming pool and kids trampoline. The views are amazing over looking PIcton Harbour. We only wished we had spent more nights here but had to travel through to Nelson. Definitely recommend to... More

For me, the big appeal of the Beachcomber was the fantastic view it has of Picton Harbour and the Sounds. A big plus is that each room has a view and a balcony from which to enjoy it! Rooms 301, 201 and 101 would have the best unobstructed views. The rooms themselves are very comfortable, tastefully refurbished in 2013. The... More

This hotel is central, within minutes walk of town, museums and the marina. All rooms have good views and our was well equipped, clean and modern. A very good place to stay with plenty of parking. On our visit the lift was out of action and of course we were on the top floor. I'll review the in house restaurant... More

Just like all everyone says you don't go to Picton for the food!!! We waited 40 mins for our entrée and an hour for our overpriced main which was so small. Chicken was dry and tiny in size for $27. Wait staff told us that there was only 1 chef on as the other had the night off!!!! Friday night... More

Close to the harbor. Is a motel with well a well equiped pleasant and modern room. The shower was a corner unit with the two doors that did not close too well so the shower sprayed onto the bathroom floor. Decent wifi for $5. Ate in the restaurant which was a mistake. Appetiser was mussels covered with unncessary cheese and... More

Lovely place to stay! Ocean views for $130 a night!! Thank you for everything. Lovely room too. Close to the foreshore. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Close to ferry and eateries. Lift. Could do with full length mirror in rooms, but that is being picky.

We stayed here night before an early ferry to Wellington. Friendly staff, huge room, huge comfy bed and nice balcony overlooking the harbour. Can walk everywhere and 5 mins drive to ferry terminal. Very clean. My only gripe was a very low pressure shower - otherwise very good.

This was another surprise, although should be used to great hotels by now, this one overlooks Picton harbour. The room was large with a small kitchenette useful if you are touring alone, dinner in the Whaler restaurant on the top floor was very good. The centre is only a couple of minutes walk away with a selection of bars &... More
