“Great hotel”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for two nights and arrived very early, around 12:30pm, because the weather was so bad. We were welcomed by Kim and checked in straight away and offered help with our luggage. Kim gave us loads of information on Picton and suggested places for lunch & dinner. We were given discount coupons for a couple of places, including Cortado, a lovely bar/bistro. The hotel room was spotless, spacious and well equipped with excellent central heating. There was a large balcony with lovely views over the harbour. Thoroughly recommended.

This hotel deserves it's position of number 1 in Picton, it should be number 1 in New Zealand
Never before have I met a couple like Kim and Ian. They were the perfect hosts, lots of info and very kind people, nothing was too much trouble. Ian picked us up from the ferry and on the drive through Picton pointed out museums, eateries and where to pick up a boat trip.
The accommodation was immaculate, plenty of utensils and cutlery, bedding was top class and fluffy towels.
The apartment was light, airy and very comfortable. The view was spectacular, I could have spent hours just looking at it.
Breakfast was good value and delivered to our room when we requested it.
I wish Ian and Kim success in their enterprise, it was fabulous, thank you

Excellent location, views and cleanliness. Couldn't fault this accommodation. For this accommodation you get exactly what you pay for and it is worth every dollar. Everything within walking distance. Do yourself a favour and stay for a couple of nights to check out Picton and all its beauty.

Room Tip: Top floor has fantastic views of harbour, but rooms on lower level also have water views.

The top ranking is well deserved for this place. The rooms all have views of the harbor, they look recently renovated, and are clean. Each room has a kitchenette, too, so you can bring in food and cook it. Stove top, sink, glassware/plates, utensils, refrigerator in each room. There is a washing machine and dryer on site that you can use, too. Internet is free. The owner is really pleasant with lots of good tips for things to do. I highly recommend staying here.

Have recently spent 3 nights at Harbour View Motel. Quiet location, spacious rooms, very comfortable ( bed was 'dippy'), room serviced daily with fresh towels & guest laundry. The balcony off our room was private, plenty of room for 2 and the view over Picton harbour was terrific. Everything was within walking distance - boat cruises to Queen Charlotte Sound, restaurants, local walking tracks. Winery tours also leave from Picton. Owners were very helpful, not intrusive. Would recommend.

Great location, recommend making this hotel and Picton your base to see the Marlborough region as well as the Queen Charlotte Sound. The views on the "Snout Walk" are as good as they come.Have nothing negative to say about this hotel at all, highly recommend.
