“Christmas 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Broadway Motel, Picton, NZ. The accommodation was excellent - our room was extremely roomy, as was the bathroom facilities. Sadly we were only there for two days, and our Christmas Day was the hottest experienced for some time. Our family had their holiday home within walking distance from Broadway and this central location was ideal. We would certainly return, and will tell others..

Thank you very much. All the best for 2013.

Graham and Heather Hodson.

Room Tip: Our bed was a "super" king - even better than our king at home.

A very comfortable and well run motel. The owners were extremely helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. They were happy for us to leave some luggage there while we were walking the Queen Charlotte walkway even though we were not returning to stay.

On each occasion we could not fault the motel, and the pleasant and helpful staff.
Yes we heard the train on our first visit, but it was not a problem. On our second visit in a larger unit we barely noticed the trains or traffic. Standards of presentation and cleanliness were excellent.

Room Tip: TTry the larger unit in the corner furthest from the street for a longer stay. Quiet and comfortable...

This is a perfectly suitable motel, but if you're a light sleeper, the trains will wake you up. Having read other reviews we thought, "it can't be that bad", but the trains run through the night and the level crossing behind the motel is quite noisy at night with the warning bells. Ear plugs were provided and the windows look double glazed, but no relief for us.

Very clean and good facilities despite this.

I am very sorry to hear that your sleep was disturbed while you stayed at the Broadway Motel. This is not what we want and as you are aware we do go to great lengths to ensure all our guest have an enjoyable stay. Unfortunately you did not mention if you utilised the ear plugs, which are provided for anybody who may be a light sleeper. Another light sleeping guest found that the ear plugs resolved this issue for her, so we now make them available to all guests.

KarynMc, there is however one correction I must make regarding your comments. I checked with Kiwi Rail and they indicated that there are only two trains that travel at night in Picton, one at approx 11.30pm and another at 5.15am.

Again I apologize for you disturbance and if there is anything else we can do for you then, please let us know. Thank you again for staying at the Broadway Motel and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

We had a great overnight stay at Broadway Motel. The room was clean, the king-sized bed was comfortable and the location is great, within walking distance to town and just across the road from the Fresh Choice!

Great location at the end of town, easy walk to everything. Room was very nice, spacious and clean. The owners are lovely, very pleasant. My mum called us from home in Australia while we were there and even she commented on how nice the man on reception was.
They recommended a great restaurant in town and some spectacular sight-seeing for our trip and were lovely people, very helpful.
Picton itself was a surprise, so pretty and a fun place to hang out for a couple of days.
