The hotel room upgrade for free was amazing. The room is amazing value for dollar. But let's get to the food... Exceptional service. Food came out quickly and waiters were friendly. The quality of the porterhouse steak was fantastic. Medium rare was just that, and the prawns and scallops that accompanied were extremely well done. My girlfriend and I reckon... More

The food was amazing using local fare and the wine list was extensive reflecting wineries in the region. Gorgeous views to the marina. Lovely atmosphere too. Service was great.

Four of us had dinner at Beachcomber Inn on Saturday night and everyone enjoyed their meal. Portions were big (which suited the men) and the meals were all delicious. The staff were very pleasant and the view from the dining room over Picton harbour is fabulous.

Make sure that if you stay here you request a room on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the port. The view is spectacular. You can sit for hours just watching the boats coming and going. Good clothes washing facilities.
