“Excellent Repeat Visit”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

My wife and I have long decided that the 'Broadway Motel' is our only preferred motel when staying in Picton. This latest overnight stay was as always excellent. The accommodation is very very good and the management team are as always friendly, helpful and willing to share local information. I have no trouble at all recommending the 'Broadway Motel' to one and all. Allan & Anne

We chose this hotel based on its reviews and we were not disappointed.
We booked online which was trouble free with a quick response.
We stayed in a 1br spa unit and were very impressed with the quality of the facilities, cleanliness and the helpful service from Henry in recommending and organising activities for us.
We arrived early from a flight from Wellington (9.00am) and were able to book in straight away which was fantastic.
The Broadway hotel represents excellent value for money and we would highly recommend it, and look forward to staying again.

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!
