In most aspects this motel is great: very friendly staff, a very spacious room, fantastic harbour views from your balcony, a good little kitchen, a comfy bed, and it's very clean. The reason that this review is 'Average' rather than 'Excellent' is purely because of the terrible shower. The water pressure is very weak - so much so that it's... More

I have just spent 3 nights in a Seaview Twin Studio in this motel, located on a hill just above Waikawa Road. My unit was in the lower section of the motel; there is other section higher up, with two floors and rooms with balconies. From my room I had a view of the marina and the sound (higher units...

Commanding overview of the Picton harbour. Spacious room and balcony combined with a sunny day for a a relaxing stay. Place was spotless and staff were friendly and helpful. Only drawback is the steep driveway into the place, but the view made it all worthwhile. Our host also drove us to our ferry departure. Would definitely stay here again

My wife and I stayed at the Harbour View for two nights on 17 and 18 March. We arrived about 8pm having been delayed on the ferry by the storms in the Cook Straight. We were met by the owner who took us to our room and ensured we were settled. The room was on the corner so had excellent... More

Fantastic motel overlooking the harbour in Picton. The unit was equipped with everything we needed. It was immaculate and very comfortable and with a view to die for. The hosts were friendly and very helpful. Picton itself was a delight with some wonderful walking tracks in the area, all (in usual Kiwi style) well kept and signposted. A boat trip... More

This was a lovely motel with a fantastic view over the harbour. The room was clean, comfortable and with plenty of space. As with all views the drive was steep but not impossible. We thoroughly enjoyed the view looking over the harbour and watching the ferries come in and out. The motel is located with an easy walk into town... More

This place was great. They picked me up from the train station within 5 minutes of calling to say I'd arrived; they also picked me up around 5:30 am to get to the ferry, which was very nice of them. I was in one of the newer apartments up the street from the main building. It was a 1 BR... More

We found this to be an absolutely superb motel. It was spotlessly clean. The views were to die for. The owners were only too happy to give advice and directions. The facility was everything it was advertised to be. I would recommend this place to all.

This is a nice choice for a motel in Picton and the operators were helpful. We had one of the higher level studio apartments which was spacious, very clean and has a nice balcony overlooking the harbour. The studio has basic cooking facilities (2 modern hot plates) typical of NZ motels. I got the impression that this was one of... More

When we left New Zealand to return home, our heart remained in Picton. The fantastic beauty of the landscape, the alluring wilderness of the Sounds, the idyllic harbor, the chic architecture of the houses - we have been mystically and effortlessly drawn into the quiet charm of Picton. Our two night stay here was utterly enhanced by a truly mind-blowing... More
