We checked in late after a long drive and the owner was really helpful and helped us check in quickly. The rooms here are really nice, the hotel is in the middle of the main street which is really handy while still being close to the ferry. Would definitely stay here again. Great value for money and great staff

Great team who were very helpful and friendly. We were shown the room and asked if we were happy with it. Have never before been afforded the opportunity to say no. The room was very clean and well presented (older units but revamped) Bed was comfy and the room had good quality curtains to help with warmth, privacy and to... More

My cousin and I spent one night here at the start of our road trip around the South Island. The man who checked us in (Kent) was super friendly and willing to help us. He showed us to our room (which had the heater pre-warmed for us - a life saver!) and offered to help us with our bags. Can't... More

A place to lay our head on our way to 35th Brass Monkey in our sidecar after travelling from the Waikato. Modern clean room with all the necessities. Weary after a long day, hot hot shower worked wonders on our weary bones. Comfy bed meant sleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow. Awoke refreshed and ready for the... More

we stayed here for my birthday for the queen's birthday weekend. The room was nice (a nice painting on the wall) and the bathroom was reasonable - certainly everything we expected for the price (which is very reasonable). The location is very central and convenient. The best thing though is the owners - really friendly and helpful, just the right... More

Love the service the owner Kent provided. Friendly & even upgraded me to one of their best rooms. Great central location. Loved how clean it was. Great to have a kitchen to cook my dinner. I'd certainly come back! Nice walk up the hill nearby!!

Stayed here on work trip. Great service from the start - man at counter printed some work documents for me, gave us unlimited wi-fi, and booked us a table at a nice restaurant. Service remained great throughout. Buildings and rooms were also very nice - will certainly stay again if I return to Picton :) Cheers.

Excellent experience. Very friendly hosts/managers and staff. Older style rooms tastefully refurbished and spotless. The cleaning staff did a superb job. Extra milk was no problem. Highly recommended to all travellers
