“Magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Fantastic location overlooking the harbour walking distance to town, restaurants and the harbour. Room was very well appointed with a lovely outllook from the deck. Hosts were very friendly and happy to alter our room to a lower level to accommodate sore knees. They even dropped us at the train station for our journey to Christchurch. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Our room was on the same level as reception but was on the end so we didnt have anyone walking past

Stayed here for 2 nights. Arrived at Picton ferry terminal at 9:30pm pouring rain and howling wind with 18month old. They were there ready to pick us up and take us to the hotel. Room was great self contained studio. Toys were provided for my daughter and free Dvds to watch.

This place was fantastic. If you come to Picton stay here you wont be dissapointed. Customer service is so important and these people have it down pat. SIMPLY THE BEST.

Great find - we were recommended this place by another motel in Kaikoura and we're so glad we managed to get a room. It was recently renovated with comfy beds and lovely bathroom. Had magnificent views over the harbour and town. Really pleasant place to stay - would definitely recommend staying more than one night in Picton - its a very pretty town.

Perfect location and ,beautiful views of the harbour .Kim and Ian were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The rooms were immaculately clean and well appointed. This is our second stay and a very comfortable stay before and following our Queen Charlotte walk. Will certainly recommend it to friends coming to Picton.

Great location, lovely clean modern apartments with great views of the harbour. Loved the special face cloth for make up with make up embroidered on it...nice touch. The make up remover pads turned out to be great as I'd forgotten mine. Very friendly and helpful service would definitely recommend.

Great location, can walk to everything necessary. View is well worth it. What a way to wake up. Staff were helpful and went above and beyond. We would highly recommend and would come back if we are ever up this way again. Being able to cook was a treat after limited facilities elsewhere. Such an easy town to navigate.

Room Tip: The top floor is well worth the few extra dollars.

Modern apartments overlooking Picton harbour. Located on the hill with great views but close enough to Main Street to walk if so inclined. Managers Ian and Kim are great hosts. They ferried us to the harbour when it was raining and when it was time to leave with baggage in tow. No wonder it is rating no1 in Picton.
