We stayed here twice, arriving late both times and in both cases, the key was left for us in the room door, as reception had finished for the day. Neither room was particularly large, but were clean and did the trick, providing a place to lay our weary heads. It the mornings, reception staff took care of us and were... More

We chose this motel because of it being advertised as Pet Friendly. We were charged an additional $20 for the booking to accommodate our two chihuahuas, which we thought was quite steep. On arrival, we found a note on the door to the office, telling us that the key was in the door of the unit, and they were down... More

My family and i stayed overnight on our way from Wellington to Christchurch. The reviews I had read had me concerned, but the room we were given was clean, warm and comfortable. The managers did say that It was the best room in the Motel. The kitchen needed some TLC, but was not required by us so I cant' find... More

The rooms were clean, modern, well organised with everything one would need or want. At first I thought it would be hard being right in the centre of the township, but the location is brilliant, right next to cafes and meals , a supermarket and two seconds from the Ferry. The staff were polite and obliging. Overall, I would recommend... More

An overnight stay in Picton with my mum and my two children. The 2 bedroom unit was perfect for us; it was modern, clean and well equipped. Right in the centre of town, which was very handy for strolling to the playground with the pram and next to a supermarket for getting a few items for breakfast.

Great location and ideal for a family. Friendly and helpful staff. We were also picked up from the train as my mother-in-law could not walk far and had a late check out both free of charge. The unit was clean and tidy, the bathroom toilet area had wheelchair access. There was only a couch so it there are more than... More

We were greeted by 2 lovely dogs as we checked into the Motel. The owners were friendly and still doing renovations to some of the rooms. Our room was modern clean and comfortable and the ensuite the same. The only negative was low water pressure in the shower. Not sure if this was only our room, the hotel or the... More

This was our first stop on the south island, our room had 2 single beds and one double. It was dated, and smelt dated. We had a dining table but all four of us barely could sit at it. We found cockroaches in the bathroom..that was a low.

The owners of this motel have tried to update it. They are obviously aiming at being a budget choice and it really shows. We had stayed in an absolutely gorgeous motel in Nelson the previous two nights and for exactly the same price High Street Living Picton was in comparison a real letdown. Accomodation in Picton seems really expensive. It... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated right in the heart of Picton, surrounded by shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The Ferry terminal is only 750 metre's away and the railway statin is even closer than that. There is so much to do with the opening of the Marlborough sounds just a minutes walk from you room. You can book a fishing charter or just cruise the sounds eating seafood and having a couple good marlborough savvy's. You can book some push bikes and take in some of the beautiful scenery on offer.We have 10 units available, 4 Studio's and 6 family two bedroom units. Each unit has a carpark outside their door so need to worry about finding parking out on the street.We are pet friendly by prior arrangement so if you are moving and don't have an option of putting your pet in a kennel etc bring him/her with you! ... more   less
