Having selected online could not have done better! Well pleased with the location, the comfort and spotlessness, fresh towels daily and so close to everything with easy walking.Comfortable beds as well and super large shower. Management very helpful and friendly.Can definitely recommend this motel.

Room Tip: Separate lounge and bedrooms if more than two people.

We stopped over in Picton and through Trip Advisor comments, decided to pre book ahead. We were not disappointed with a very spacious room and everything was so sparkling clean. It is so close to town and we would definitely stay again.

I stayed here with my husband on a 4 week trip around NZ. We stayed here for three nights. Overall it was fine accomodation. Very close to the city centre, clean and comfotale. We had a good sized spa bath but the shower was appalling - took about 15 minutes to wash my hair because there was no pressure!
However there is a railway line right behind our room and the early am and late pm trains did distrub our sleep - not the motels fault but was a bit annoying.
Service was good and there is a computer with free internet in the lobby but no skype and very slow.
Overall we paid over $150 NZ a night to stay here and comparing it to what we stayed in throughout the rest of our 1 month trip we did have better value elsewhere.

Rachfoster - Thank you for the feedback and it’s great to hear that you enjoyed our central location, clean and comfortable units. What is a real concern is that you found the shower appalling as we do have very good showers here at the Broadway. Upon investigation we found a restriction in the shower head which was fixed immediately after we were made aware of the problem by your review. It is a real shame that you did not raise your concern with us at the time, as this would have prevented you and other guests from having to put up with a substandard shower.
I am sorry to hear that the Train disturbed your sleep as we have gone to great lengths to minimise any noise issues by double glazing the windows, installing heavy drapes with additional liners and finally provided ear plugs (guest recommendation) for the light sleepers. We do have quieter units but unfortunately these units do not have a large corner spa bath, balcony or a super king bed.
It’s great to hear you made use of the free internet that is available in the Lobby for your emails etc. Unfortunately we do not offer Skype on the Lobby PC as there would be no privacy when other guests were using the office. We find the majority of people prefer to use their own laptops via our Wifi network (this is faster than the office PC) which is also partially free over the offseason.
Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Having had our flight to Auckland cancelled due to the snow in Christchurch, we made a mad dash to picton to catch the 7am Ferry to Wellington, we arrived in Picton at midnight and nothing was open. We tried to get a room at 2 big chain Hotels, and their night managers were not willing to help us, although they were advertsing rooms available outside! Arriving at The Broadway motel we were able to dial a 0800 number displayed outside and speak to the owner direct about a room, the service was outstanding and the room was very comfortable. Easily deserving of it's 4 + star rating!

Our room (room on second floor with spa bath and separate living/dining room) was well appointed and even though it looked out over the railway line the trains didn't disturb us at all. Supermarket just across the road for groceries and only a 10/15 minute walk to the town centre. Shame there is not free internet. Staff made us very welcome.

Millimad - thank you for your feedback and it’s great to hear that you appreciated our central location and well-appointed rooms.
Just to clarify a couple of points you made, the 10-15 minutes to the centre of town is a very leisurely stroll, as it is only 400 meters (437 yards). Regarding the Free internet – Yes we do have free internet available in the office for our guests all year round, as well we do provide free Wifi in the off season.
Thank you again for taking the time to review our business and staying at the Broadway Motel. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Jackie, thank you for the feedback about our Motel. It is really pleasing that you enjoyed our central location, great showers, bathroom and kitchen area.
I am unsure what you mean regarding "a cement wall that ran around the property". We do have a 1.8 meter painted concrete fence on one boundary of our property which goes past just one unit. The reason it is there is to provide privacy & security to the guests that are in this room. The only other concrete wall we have is a one meter high painted wall on one side of the courtyard, which is there to prevents people from falling four meters down to the road below. All the other boundaries have normal fencing so if you require further clarification, then please contact me on +64 3 573 6563
Jackie, Thank you again for the feedback and recommendation and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

We stayed at Broadway motel over queens birthday weekend (2-4th June 2012). It was within walking distance to the interislander ferry terminal, shops and restaurants. Top notch service (right from when we rang and booked). The motel was very modern, quiet (due to double glazing) and welcoming. Great price for what we got. We would choose this over any other motel in Picton. Thanks team!

Room Tip: We had a king executive suite on the top level, awesome, with own balcony off bedroom area.
