“Picton at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Positives: location (along High St 5mins walk from ferry terminal and near useful shops), friendly and helpful staff (thank you!), amenities, cleanliness, spacious room, modern toilet, free wifi
Negatives: nothing significant, maybe bad tv reception?? but who cares we didn't go on a holiday to watch tv
Bottom line, next time we go back to Picton we will not hesitate to stay here again

This is such a good place to stay! The location is perfect - right on High street but our room had a lovely view over the marina. It was nice and comfortable and definitely good value for money :) The staff were friendly and welcoming and go the extra mile with making sure you have an amazing stay. A bonus was definitely getting free drinks with our meals down at the Cortado restaurant (the pizzas there were so good and my partner is still dreaming about the seafood)! We will definitely be back!

On check in the owner was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a great room - everything very tidy and all amenities available for our needs. This is right in the centre of town with proximity to ferry and shops. From the brewer from Perth.

From the first step into the reception and the friendly greeting from the host, our stay in this very reasonably price motel was a good experience.

The bare minimum was provided which you expect in any motel.

The furniture was modern and comfortable.

The title says it all! Value for money!

Don't bother stopping here. I would expect for the price a better facility but they're charging a premium for ferry and of course Easter. Upon arrival we couldn't find any information in our room and were told the folders were being updated. I needed to use the laundry but hours were limited as it was next to another room and too nosy so closed by 8.30pm. Yes sound proofing is non existent here. I was surprised to hear they charge $4 to wash and $4 to dry, not good form ripping off travelers. The advertised cable/satellite tv consisted of 7 channels I think. They TV has bad reception, of the 3 sky channels we couldn't watch 1 as it was on a parental lock and the 'sky' remotes are not provided. The cupboards were dirty, dinnerware stored in with cleaning paraphernalia. The shower door creaked so badly you'd wake people across the street and it had the weirdest gass louvre windows in shower that opened into a void area that adjoined other rooms. So we could look out from out shower and toilet window onto other showers and toilets. When another room showered it sounded as if they were in yours. Our bed was comfortable but bedside lights broken.
