Good hotel for almost everything. Free wifi but slow. The owner is nice and recommended a good restaurant called Barn. He was keen to see customers leaving good comments on Tripadviser, which is fair to me.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our kids before catching the ferry across to Wellington. The motel had been recently revamped and was clean & comfortable. The hosts were very friendly & accommodating. We received free Internet vouchers were recommended good places to visit & eat at. Can highly recommend a stay at this motel next time you are in Picton.

The night was very good. The staff were very friendly. The rooms are very good for the price, when I saw for the first time the room I couldn't believe that is for that price. Very clean. Good location, next to many restaurants.

I had stayed here once before when it was called Americano and didnt think much of the service or rooms. But after checking in and talking to Ken and Marie I was informed they had taken over and changed a few things, and WOWZA what a difference! The rooms were amazing and Kent and Marie were so friendly even helped out with where the best place for meals were and they were spot on with that too. I go to Picton a lot with work and will not think of staying anywhere else from now. Cant wait for their buffet breakfast bar to open.

Never during my stay in NZ was I able to access what I consider "normal Internet" as a silly American. But I was given THREE Internet vouchers here because my first voucher ran out. The bed and shower are very nice and the kitchenette has all the necessities.

A very accommodating venue, easy access, friendly people, the $99 Studio was perfect for what we needed for a two night stay back and forth during our travels to the lower South. The Restaurant they referred us too was top notch! We would stay there again.

This motel is in a really great place, close to the center of town, the ocean, and some hiking. The staff was super informative, helpful and friendly. They helped us figure out what there was to do in Picton, and they didn't overly stress paid activities. Picton was also a great little place to stay. Beautiful town.
