“Excellent. Loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Had a wonderful 3 night stay over the New Year. The location is brilliant: great views of the harbour and a short walk into town. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and spacious. Kim and Ian are great hosts and always willing to offer help and advice. Highly recommended.

Very comfortable room, great reclining leather lounge, very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchenette, fantastic view over the harbour & FREE internet. If I'm in Picton again I would definately stay there.

Knew from the moment we walked into reception and had a warm welcome from Ian that we had picked a winner.
Lovely clean unit with views overlooking the harbour.
Comfortable bed, fluffy white towels changed daily and a well equipped kitchen.
No doubt the best choice for accommodation in Picton.

I booked this for a first stop on the South Island after arriving with my wife and young children on on the last ferry from Wellington (after 11pm). As I have not been in New Zealand before and know little of Picton, I was rather nervous as to what I might find.

This motel was a very welcome surprise. We were greeted warmly by the owners who were awaiting our arrival despite the late hour and brought into a new, spacious and clean two bedroom apartment over two floors. The apartment had been decorated with a Christmas tree and was well stocked with all cooking utensils you could require. The beds were large and comfortable and my son was particularly impressed with the size of the TV available to him in the sitting room! The next morning, we saw the views from the balcony over the harbour and rather wished that we were staying for a number of days, not heading directly on to Nelson.

Overall, a very welcome stop and we shall certainly come again.

The situation and the owners make this motel a "must"
We arrived late -11.30 after some ferry difficulties ,however we were met by the owner at the ferry terminal and given a warm welcome. The room was large with a good sized sitting area plus good sized balcony and a well equipped kitchen. They could not have been more helpful about looking after our luggage as we were returning 5 nights later- they even stored our breakfast! They were also very helpful about offering a taxi service to Marlborough and took us direct to the vineyard we wanted to visit. If I return to Picton I will definitely stay at the Harbour View.

Room Tip: all have harbour views. the higher rooms probably slightly better.

We stayed at Harbour View Dec 30 and 31 in one of the 2brm apartments. The apartment was in a great location, was very new with all the mod cons, have plenty of space and the kitchen is very well stocked with cooking utensils, etc.

Not only that- but our hosts were very helpful and went above and beyond. 5++

The room very clean with pleasant views to water, conveniently situated for cruises and eating areas. The hosts very obliging letting us in room early and taking our luggage to train station was a bonus.

Room Tip: All rooms have water views probably higher would have better views but we were on ground floor which...
