“Nice owners, pleasant place to stay”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Had only one night here but as the saying goes "all good". Check in was friendly and efficient with all relevant details relating to our stay perfectly explained.
Location was good in a reasonably quiet part of town, a little bit of road noise but you get that most places (we are from a very quiet place) also close to everything really including a good fish & chip shop and lively Irish Bar plus liquor outlet nearby however Picton town is relatively small and a easy stroll to anywhere you wish to eat, drink or shop.

We looked all over Picton before we found this gem, the rooms differ a lot as some have been re vamped and others not so, my wife looked at two different rooms and chose one that she liked then when we were together they said that there was a room near the reception on the ground floor that goes out to a grassy area with out door tables and chairs, it was nice sitting out side over looking the harbour and we went for a lovely walk from there checking the whole place out. Its only a short stroll to some great restaurants like Le Cafe and many others.
The room was very spacious and kept clean, the bathroom was a bit dated but we only showered in there not slept! The staff were very friendly and helpful and we would certainly stay here again when in Picton, which by the way is one of my favourite places in the world!

Room Tip: It was very nice on the ground floor with the out doors area, also when in Picton I highly recommend...

We stayed for one night awaiting an early morning sailing on the ferry. We were in a studio unit on the second floor towards the marina end of the building. The front desk person was friendly, very helpful and prepared to show rooms. The rooms were clean, well maintained and would have been highly regarded when it was built. There was no hand basin in the toilet/shower - not very hygenic when the basin is used also to wash dishes etc. The major downside was that noise from adjoining rooms is very audible. We had someone reading german aloud at 10.30pm on one side and someone with an intermitent cough on the other. We would only use as a default next time.

Room Tip: If occupancy is low ask for vacant rooms each side.

We stayed at the Beachcomber Inn on the last day of our Holiday, it was a last minute booking, and they were very helpful. The room was large we had a great view. It was very clean we were on the ground floor as only regular rooms available, but we had a nice big patio, with the swimming pool and the garden with all the furniture right there so that was nice.
The only bug was that you couldnt make breakfast no facilities in the room, they did do breakfast in the restaurant sometimes when larger groups stayed, but that wasnt a problem as there was plenty of cafes to get an early breakfast.
Talking of the restaurant, we had dinner there, The Chef at that restaurant must taste everything he cooks the flavours were just bouncing in my mouth The Scallops were fantastic we both loved the dish, and the prawn cocktail with lyches and mandarins made for a whole different flavour, well done chef dont lose him. And the views from the retaurant looked out over the sounds all in all we had a great night. Thank you Garry and Lorna New Plymouth

Room Tip: We didnt see the other rooms, but it looks like if you paid a bit more you were higher up and with...

Nice hotel with a great view over the Sounds. The room was nice and clean, but there was a big minus: the shower. The water pressure was so low that a decent shower was almost impossible. And that was just what we needed after a long day of walking and kayaking. Shame as that ruined the otherwise good impression we had of this hotel.

Do try the restaurant, surprisingly good quality food!

We stayed for 2 nights and the room was great. The view from the courtyard was out to the marina and it is walking distance to town. The room had all the requirements that we were wanting but parking is limited. The room had sliding doors to the courtyard as we were on the 1st level but it is right next to the water. Great budget hotel and would return when staying in picton.

Room Tip: Room did not have spa but unsure if they have spa rooms for people looking for that option.

Hotel has a sign outside that says we aren't as expensive as we look !!
well will leave you to decide that one
Our room was clean and tidy and the furnishings reasonably modern linen was nice . Quite quiet even though hotel was full
Great view from the balcony Room kept clean for the 3 night stay
Didn't try the restaurant as we liked to see what was in town
people did use the little swimming pool
The bed quite soft and the pillows very soft ( note to self) must remember own pillows next time
As it is a hotel no microwave , knives or forks or plates etc,
Only one sink for brushing teeth and handwashing etc - didn't like that particularly as we were filling the kettle from the sink - none in the bathroom but you can only get one person in the bathroom at a time anyway -
The shower gel was over the sink in the bedroom so had to use the single soap when showering or somehow on a flannel take it with you before showering
Staff cheerful and gave us extra milk when needed
Did say no cooked breakfast available but continental was
Information in the book in the room was a bit dated and tv had only about 4 channels working
Hairdryer - it is a test to find it , eventually after asking at reception next day - so traveller to save you time it is under the surface , hidden, behind the chair ,next to the mirror - ( a bit high for a 160cm person)

Room Tip: Ask for one with a kitchen and firm pillows
