I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before we ate here. Whalers is the in-house restaurant at the Beachcomber Inn and it has some pretty poor reviews. The quality of the food may depend on which chef is working, I don't know but once we got over the shock of the Xmas decorations (eight laden trees at least plus loads... More

Had dinner here and was disappointed in the meals. The service and response to my complaint was very good but for the price the food quality is poor. Vegetables not cooked properly, kids meal with beans not peas as it says on the menu and other let downs across all courses. There are other places in Picton I would eat... More

Last week we had a meal at the dining room of the Beachcomber and the room full of lots of Xmas trees and Xmas decorations - you knew that Xmas was on its way - BUT - having been away from home for quite a number of days we decided to have the "Roast of the Day" for dinner! What... More

Great place to eat with a good menu selection and all meals are reasonably priced. The tables by the window have a superb view overlooking the harbour. Sit and watch the ferries come and go. The meals are generous portions and the lamb roast is to die for. It would have to be the best lamb we have eaten it... More

We attended a social Dinner for our local Bed and Breakfast Association at this restaurant. The Christmas atmosphere and decorations are fantastic. The 3 Course dinner my husband and ate was generous and well-cooked. The restaurant is comfortable and has beautiful views over Picton Harbour. We would recommend this restaurant without hesitation to our guesst, family and friends.

Stayed as part of a group. The rooms were refurbished in 2013 and have a clean and modern feel to them. The service was friendly and the food plentiful. Would stay here again

The accommodation was great - lovely room, great views and a balcony to relax on. The meal in the restaurant was average, but very generous. Staff were nice. Totally recommend this place.

Much better than I imagined when I saw the ad in the AA Traveller book. Warm, sunny, and quiet room with a great view over the harbour. Friendly staff too. Restaurant on site which saves travelling too far if you're hungry, and only 5 mins from the ferry terminal. Only down side was the slippery tiles outside the door due... More
