We travelled as a couple and stayed one night before boarding the ferry to Wellington. Everything at this place was really great. We had a room that had a small kitchen and balcony with table and chairs -- the view directly towards the adjacent Picton harbor and marina. The room was huge and felt great especially when we needed space... More

We drove into Picton and spotted this motel beside the road, really close to town. The view from our room was amazing, even though the room we chose was at the lowest level. The room itself was well worth the tariff. It was spacious with a patio and little garden, both with views of the harbour. If I had to... More

Kim was the most helpful lady we met on our tour around New Zealand.She helped supply parking for our car whilst we spent a night away over on The... More

You can also plug in a USB stick and watch movies. I requested some ice and manager had that on the ready for us. A nice... More

The view from our room on the top floor was absolutely amazing - right across the harbour as the name suggests. The room was large with a balcony to sit on with a glass of wine and enjoy the view of the harbour and out to sea. We appreciated the electric blanket and the free wi fi which we did... More

This motel is adjacent to the marina and the ferry terminal in Picton, South Island, NZ. As customary in NZ the second floor of the motel has an opåen gallery from which you have access to the rooms. This means that your fellow motel guests may pass your door on and off. There are seats outside the doors where you... More

We stayed for a total of 7 nights. With 2 trips an overnight in Wellington, then we did the Queen Charlotte track. Kim and Ian are excellent hosts and the motel is very comfortable,modern and a great location. Ian suggested walks from the motel which we enjoyed. This was our favorite motel on a 6 week tour of New Zealand.... More

This place is clean, spacious, with a great view of the harbor. The bathroom is spacious and very clean. We enjoyed our little patio overlooking th area and our well-equipped kitchenette. Th owner was so helpful she even helped us with our laundry so we could go have our dinner. I would recommend this place without hesitating!

Stayed here for one night (April 2015) after getting off the ferry from Wellington. First impressions were very good, the place was exceptionally clean and the room was spacious. Queen size bed, sofa table, all well spaced out and the kitchen utilities were good.Great views over the harbour of course - but we were also spoilt by a lovely evening.... More
