We have stayed for one night before catching the ferry back to Wellington and room was nice and clean but had a bad smell of mould and wasn't warm enough. Toilet roll was almost finished though had a spare one on the shelves. Beds are quite comfy and got electric blankets which was very helpful with lack of heat in... More

The photos of this motel appear to show a three storey establishment but it has been cleverly laid out so that each 'floor' is actually separate from the others. As a result there are no stairs and you can park outside your room. More importantly, almost all rooms have an excellent view of the harbour. The rooms are large and... More

We stayed in an upper level room--fantastic views of Picton Harbour! The driveway was very steep--ask for a lower level room (still great views) if you have mobility issues. Room was very nicely decorated, had good wi-fi, a clean bathroom, and a basic kitchenette.

This motel is well appointed and the king bed was possibly the best motel bed I have ever slept in. The driveway is steep and parking is a premium, but once in the room it was worth it! The only real down sode was the bathroom. Shower had very low pressure and the floor was icy! In saying that, can't... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a Studio apartment. The apartment had everything we needed and was very clean. Had amazing views over the harbor. A short walk to shops and waterfront. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The Harbour View Motel in Picton deserves its popularity. It is ideally located for anyone wishing to catch one of the ferry services to Wellington. Our room was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and freshly decorated. We had a great view of the harbour from our room which was on the top level. We found the staff to be very... More

Very friendly staff. Amazing view with a nice balcony to enjoy it from, very close to shops and restaurants. Decent (clean and modern) kitchenette, bathroom and beds. Only walking distance to quay, museum, aquarium. I highly recommend staying here.

Its a bit of a mission getting a park close to your room. But thats because the motel is built in a step like fashion up the hill which of course gives it that great Harbour And Marina view, so you dont worry about it The rooms are modern, well sized for two with all the amenities youd expect but...
