Their staff are friendly and provide great service. Motel is at a good location, near to all the cafes, restaurants, supermarket and shops. The room is neat and tidy. We will be back if we visit Picton again.

We stayed overnight after a long day traveling. We were welcome by very friendly, helpful management. Perfect accommodation for a family of four. The unit was warm, clean and comfortable. We would recommend this as the place to stay while you are in Picton.

Never having stayed in New Zealand before did not know what the places and people would be like. We need not have worried as we had the warmest welcome from here. The knowledge of the local eateries and places to visit was outstanding. The room was really great, clean and had everything we needed. If ever you visit Picton I would say you could not find a nicer place to stay. Thanks to our hosts.

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.
