Harbour View Motel Picton

Reviewed December 12, 2012

We stayed at The Harbour View Motel for 2 nights. 8th and 9th of December.
We needed a small break before Xmas after a hectic year. The Motel was lovely. Had a goreous view from our room which was spotless. The room had everything we needed and was very comfortable.
We will definately be staying there again. Wish we could have stayed longer it was just what we needed.

Room Tip: Ask for a Harbour view [Think all rooms have this anyway but best to ask].

The view alone is worth the money. All rooms have a harbour view. The accommodation was beautiful, well maintained, tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. The new owners, Ian and Kim , go out of their way to make you feel welcome offering tips on what to see as well as the opportunity to book Marlborough Sound related activities. We so enjoyed our stay here. Of all the hotels and motels at which stayed on our 3 month stay in Australia and New Zealand this is the best value of money

We had a great weekend in Picton and would definitely stay at this motel again. The room was stylish and quiet, with a superb view of the harbour and well located. Loved the balcony and little touches like the gourmet range of teas and coffees. Also, the hosts went out of their way to help- even to the point of searching for us in Picton when they thought we were going to be late for the train. Recommended!

We have just spent a month in New Zealand and this moterl was one of the highlights. We had a great room on the top floor looking out over the Sound. Kim and Ian were very helpfull. The room was exceptionally well furnished and roomy. My husband enjoyed comming back from a long walk to discover what choc bars we had been left that day!

Room Tip: WE stayed in the best room No 12.

Each room has a covered balcony with a great view over Picton and the harbour. Therefore it's also nice to stay there even if the weather's bad. The rooms are large and the kitchens are very clean and well equiped to cook several things. It's worth to stay there more than just one night - Picton is a nice spot for walks and hikes to the Marlborough Sounds, to join a Wine Tour at Blenheim or Whale Watching in Kaikoura.

Arrived at the hotel to a very warm reception by Ian- we checked in with discount vouchers to a local restaurant- which was delicious and much needed after a long road trip across the island.

The room itself had fantastic views across the harbour and centrally located to Picton and the restaurants.

Very clean- recently modernised and they had thought of everything from the make up remover to the ironing board (not that I did any ironing)

They even gave us a lift to the ferry terminal first thing in the morning which was much appreciated!

Couldn't recommend it highly enough!

Wonderful view over Picton Harbour. Studio apartment immaculately clean & fresh. Spacious accommodation. Hosts very friendly and helpful, making our stay relaxing and refreshing. Great memories of sitting on our balcony, admiring the views and enjoying a glass of wine from the nearby Marlborough area. If you want to stay in Picton, look no further. We would highly recommend the Harbour View Motel.

Room Tip: Great views from most apartments, but our top level studio was hard to beat.
