“Perfect Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

This place is perfectly located a short distance from where the boats stop, walking distance from a good pub meal, met some very entertaining locals, the rooms are on the small side but are clean and over all suitable for an over night stay.
Loved the host puppies.

We rode up walked in at 4:30pm. We had just completed a trip around the South Island . So we were looking a little rough. This wasn't a problem. We got room #1. Yes the motel is dated. I can remember staying there many many years ago. The motel is small and the new owners are doing a great job at refreshing a great spot. You can park and walk all around town. That is because you are in the centre of town. Bloody great. Shop around for a meal as the they see you as a captive market.
I would stay again and tell my friends about this gem.

We stayed here after seeing photos online; it looked really nice. The room was very small, though quite well appointed. The floors had not been vacuumed before we arrived (the rug had bits all over it) and it was freezing cold. It didn't look anything like the pictures online; everything looked half-finished. The pillows were the most uncomfortable things we'd ever slept on, and the bed had terrible roll-together. Because of the layout, it was quite noisy overnight with the people next door arriving in the wee small hours. We were given out-of-date milk, but assured that it had been frozen and was okay. For the price we paid, we thought that in-date milk wouldn't be too much to ask for.
We paid $190, far too much for what it was. We stayed again a few nights later on our way home - we couldn't cancel the booking because we would have lost our money anyway. We were in a different room this time. It was clean and tidy, but the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The shower had very poor water pressure and the toilet seat was wobbly. The kitchen light was hard to find and there was a paving stone on top of one of the kitchen cabinets instead of a proper bench. Because it's porous, it's not hygienic.
While we were there, a man arrived to check in. He went into his room then came out, saying, 'I thought this was a nice place!' He left. It sums up how we feel about our stay there.

Room Tip: Look before you book.

We stayed here at the end of March. The motel is small as are the rooms, but you can't beat the location or the hospitality. Right on the heart of the main street with shops and restaurants on the doorstep. Less than a 5 minute drive (and probably only a 10 minute walk) to the ferry terminal.
We had a two bedroom unit (1 double and 2 singles). The bedrooms were small, but adequate. The living room and kitchen were small, but we three adults managed. The bathroom is large and needs updating. Maybe the new owners can look into stealing some room off the bathroom to make the kitchen larger.
High praise to the young couple who have taken on this motel and are renovating it. The dogs are friendly - even bringing a lead to you on case you might weaken and take them for a walk!

Booked this on line, paid more than price on outside board. Room had a comfortable bed and some new décor features but that could not make up for the fact that it was unbelievably small. We had to put our suitcases on the two chairs then move them to the bed when we wanted to sit. We were later told by the manager that this, along with 3 others, were once single garages that had been converted. Now you get the idea.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you commit

Lovely little place with new hosts who are doing everything they can to upgrade their new business. Lovely people with very sweet dogs and a brand new kitten (at the time we were there). Very warm, relaxed atmosphere right in the heart of the town. Nothing was too much trouble and we highly recommend it. Would definitely stay again.

Picton is lovely, and this will be a great little motel, but a way to go yet. Good on you to the couple who have taken it on and their gorgeous dogs! But I don't think we got value for money. A very small room at a greater cost than our rooms in Ibis Wellington and Mecure Queenstown. Clean and comfy and friendly owners though.

Room Tip: Twin room was tiny
