Owners are very helpful, lovely big room, fresh and clean. Great view from the rooms on the end by the wharf. Easy walking distance to shops and bars. Close to the ferry.. Restaurant was very good too. Will be back for sure..

The Beachcomber Inn is located on the waterfront and is a short walk from the ferry terminal. There is also plenty of parking if you have a car. The location is utterly fantastic. A great view from the balcony. And a short walk into town for the restaurants, cafes and supermarket. Also a very short walk to the tour operators... More

Having arrived in Picton, our accommodation at the Beachcomber Inn was for 3 nights, however one night would have been sufficient. The best thing about our room was the balcony where we could enjoy a glass of wine and admire the view across the harbour. All the decor is a bit dated and must be due for an upgrade, but... More

Having had a ferry misfortune we were forced to find accommodation at short notice in Picton. Beachcomber Inn turned out to be a great option. We stayed in a newly refurbished superior room on the top floor with very nice modern décor and great views. Good location near the marina which meant we could take an enjoyable walk around the...

Well situated hotel within easy walking distance to all things. Although getting a little tired it was clean and everything functioned well. All staff were friendly and helpful. This was our third stay at this hotel and find it value for money. Would recommend if you need somewhere that is above basic but not over the top (price reflects). Tea... More

We did not stay here but had our main meal at the Whalers restaurant. What a Great Harbor and Marina View!!! A Warm inviting atmosphere! Top that with a meal to die for and a serving the size to fill a lumberjack. We just had a lovely meal at the Whalers Restaurant for a mere pittance and will definitely return... More

Arrived late on a wet miserable night and had to leave early to catch a ferry, so wasn't too bothered about a room with a view so we chose a "standard" room. What an inappropriate phrase that was, because the room was finished, presented and maintained to the very highest of standards and at a very reasonable price. I was... More

First time at this hotel, but sure beats the others I have stayed at. Recently refurbished to a high standard - also to a very high earthquake standard, I was told. Restaurant also offers excellent meals at a favourable price. Staff excellent and very friendly. Will be my stay of choice next time I am in Picton.

Great large comfortable room with spa. Fantastic balcony views over the Picton Harbour and beyond. I agree with other reviews good to see a motel that puts room presentation above outside appearance. Will definitely stay again.
