Thank you to Beachside Sunnyvale Motel for a quiet stay, our rooms were very neat and had everything we needed and close to the ferry terminal. The owner could not do enough for us to make our stay comfortable this means a lot to us who were so far from home.

Lovely dated accommodation,large Queen room,very clean and comfortable We were greeted very warmly,and lovely biscuits made by our host herself was a nice touch. It is a 10 minute drive,or 20 minute walk to the only Restuarant around... More

Super simple, super clean & very friendly. There's a great charm to the place. It has personality and retro charm. You'll be glad you avoided a cookie cutter motel where they all look and feel the same. The rooms are very clean and well thought out. Perfect escape back in time. A great location and very nice people.

Out of all the places we have stayed in New Zealand this was by far my favorite. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room itself was beautiful and so clean you could eat off the floor. Beds were comfortable, quiet location and the wifi worked great. The room Itself was way bigger than what we thought. I highly... More

This is a lovely peaceful place a few miles from the ferry terminal at Picton. We only stayed one night before getting the early ferry but we'd have loved to stay for longer. The motel is small, but the rooms are big enough and well appointed, in our case with a separate bedroom. The wifi works, the staff are pleasant... More

You get a warm welcome including home made cookies here. Clean rooms but they are really dated with very old furniture. The owner will also let you take out his kayak free of charge. The area is beautiful, but nowhere nearby to eat. I think it is a little expensive for the quality of room, but great location.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel. We do not state anywhere that we are a new Motel and we go to a lot of trouble to show guests exactly what we offer , also we post many, many photo's to show our units. When booking it is important to book a unit suited to yourself and... More

Arrived to a really warm welcome from Tomoko. Have a lovely room that whilst dated is lovely and clean and well painted. The kitchen has everything- even a full cooker! A great location for both the ferry and exploring the area in a lovely bay. Great home made biscuits!

The taps had separate cold and hot taps so I could not use warm water :( The showers were like this also however the shower water pressure was very strong which was very good! The homemade biscuits were something I was looking forward to by reading reviews previously, and they were beyond expectation! However the rooms were not as soundproof... More

Location right on the water, and the owner/manager - what a SUPER NICE guy - we were to arrive late, close to 10pm, he said no problem, will wait for you. It's not super modern, outdated furniture, but you feel like you were staying at aunt - uncle's place. Clean, serves the purpose. I just didn't like not having screens... More

We had given up all hope finding anywhere to stay in Picton after a gruelling journey when the kind lady at I-site found us this VERY reasonably priced accommodation. It got better! When we arrived, our charming host served us( with the milk) a dish of the most delicious biscuits baked by his equally delightful wife! My husband thought he'd... More
