The motel is in the center of the Picton village. Very close to the harbour where the interislander ferry lands.
The rooms are not very big and also not very modern, but the management is very friendly and helpful.
They provide much help and information about the area, town and restauants.
The wireless network they have from Zenbu does not work in the rooms at the street side, but fortunately Telecom NZ does also provide free wifi in Picton.
The pricemfor the room is reasonable, but the value for money is just OK.
