First time to the South Island and I was a bit confused using a new app for making reservations. We did great with the ferry over and had planned on staying right in Picton after disembarking. Admiral's was right near the port and when we arrived at reception it was closed - we were considerably earlier than the 2:00 PM... More

Good location, good size bedroom in good condition. Breakfast was a very limited menu. Would be pleased to recommed. Picton has very limited accommodation options so this is a good choice. When in picton visit whaling museum close to hotel.

The place is much better in a reality than on the photos. It is very cosy and super clean place. We stayed in a pretty, bright and spacious room number 4 (as I remember well the number). I have seen other rooms and there was only one which was a bit dark. There was all what we needed to stay... More

Friendly check in. Lots of choices on hot drinks . Spacious room. Sunny clean breakfast lounge and well stocked with cereals yoghurt toast and fresh coffee for self service. Quiet. Easy free parking. Loved the welcome chocolates. Bathroom and toilet a bit cramped.

We booked hotel for one night on our way back to Wellington. The building and furnishing are older but in good condition. It's a good value for this city. We did not expect breakfast because we had to leave hotel at 7:00 am. Sharp. We were pleasantly surprised when the manager offered to have breakfast ready for us at 6:30... More

We took advantage of the lounge room to eat our takeaway dinner from down the street and watch the rugby in the evening. The help yourself continental breakfast was... More

Arrived late, and left early next morning, but found staff very accommodating and friendly. Location was perfect to stopover from the ferry, and easy to find. Facility a bit dated, but seemed well maintained and certainly adequate for my needs. Room was clean and warm. Breakfast was fine. Would certainly stay again when travelling through.

Picton was a one night stopover to catch the ferry to Wellington. Easter weekend - couldn't find a place to stay for love or money (unless it was a lot of it!!) (money that is!!). One of the hotels I called suggested I call AL and I got the delightfully friendly Dellis on the line and managed to snag a... More

The rooms are clean but tired. Dellis is the energy in the lodge and very helpful with the local sites etc. The breakfast was fresh and kitchen very clean but basic. The bathroom was very narrow and small. The room 3 was depressing, the place has potential as in in a good location it needs updating and thing like switches... More
