Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is the amongst the best accommodation in my 2 weeks in south island. Part of the mecure hotels group. The apartment is 2 story high right smack in picton city center. Cost only around $240 for a night with 2 bedrooms. Large and excellent unblock harbor view. Can use mecure swimming pool too. Book it! I am very sure you will not regret. My whole family loved it!

Reviewed November 26, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Moorings while on our honeymoon. We wish we could have stayed longer in Picton! We were a little wary of booking with them since no one else had reviewed it, but we were pleasantly surprised.

You actually check in at the hotel right in front of the Moorings, which was a bit confusing. We drove around a while because we didn't see a Moorings sign - instead, look for The Mercure Hotel. They will give you your keys.

We got apartment #5, which is a two-level, two bedroom/two bath apartment. It is nicely furnished and has an awesome view of the harbor. We took advantage of both the balconies (on the first and second floors). This would be an awesome place for families. The second bedroom had its own full bath and two twin beds. There is also a full kitchen stocked with dishes, so cooking in and having a bottle of wine on the balcony would be a great idea!

The location couldn't be better. It is located right in the middle of Picton, within walking distance of nice little shops and restaurants. It's also an easy walk to the ferry terminal for those who are leaving for or arriving from Wellington. Even in the midst of the city, we had no trouble with noise. We slept like babies.

Overall, a great choice for couples, families, or a group of friends. We will be back!

Room Tip: Go the grocery store and stay in one night - the apartments offer a full kitchen. We would have love...
