My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Linkwater motels and it was a really relaxing holiday. The motels were spotless and really well equiped. Thank you Adam and Melisa for being so friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning in the near future. Kate and Jim Duffy

We first stayed here four years ago on our first trip to New Zealand. We looked at the motels in Picton but decided that we preferred the beautiful rural setting of Linkwater. A stay of 1 night was quickly extended to 3 nights. We have been coming back since then every year for the last four years when we visited... More

The good: * room was spotless * shared facilities were also spotless * also a bargain at around $70AUD per night * very friendly owner (and dog) A bit less good: * room was teeny weeny * there was a little bit of noise when people moved around the hotel Overall, a pretty good stay for the money.

We arrived here late at night in the pitch black after driving along the very narrow and twisty Queen Charlotte Drive, and wondered wha we were letting ourselves in for. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly hosts who got us checked in quickly and showed us to our accommodation in the backpackers wing. The room was small, but... More

Great place in great location close to Queen Charlotte Track, Havelock the Sounds and Picton. Everything is of very clean and of high standard from beds to bedlinens and we got a few very good nights sleeps. Great value for money, when we compared to other places we have stayed in NZ. We came back to stay one more night... More
