“Picked a winner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

Knew from the moment we walked into reception and had a warm welcome from Ian that we had picked a winner.
Lovely clean unit with views overlooking the harbour.
Comfortable bed, fluffy white towels changed daily and a well equipped kitchen.
No doubt the best choice for accommodation in Picton.

I booked this for a first stop on the South Island after arriving with my wife and young children on on the last ferry from Wellington (after 11pm). As I have not been in New Zealand before and know little of Picton, I was rather nervous as to what I might find.

This motel was a very welcome surprise. We were greeted warmly by the owners who were awaiting our arrival despite the late hour and brought into a new, spacious and clean two bedroom apartment over two floors. The apartment had been decorated with a Christmas tree and was well stocked with all cooking utensils you could require. The beds were large and comfortable and my son was particularly impressed with the size of the TV available to him in the sitting room! The next morning, we saw the views from the balcony over the harbour and rather wished that we were staying for a number of days, not heading directly on to Nelson.

Overall, a very welcome stop and we shall certainly come again.

The situation and the owners make this motel a "must"
We arrived late -11.30 after some ferry difficulties ,however we were met by the owner at the ferry terminal and given a warm welcome. The room was large with a good sized sitting area plus good sized balcony and a well equipped kitchen. They could not have been more helpful about looking after our luggage as we were returning 5 nights later- they even stored our breakfast! They were also very helpful about offering a taxi service to Marlborough and took us direct to the vineyard we wanted to visit. If I return to Picton I will definitely stay at the Harbour View.

Room Tip: all have harbour views. the higher rooms probably slightly better.

We stayed at Harbour View Dec 30 and 31 in one of the 2brm apartments. The apartment was in a great location, was very new with all the mod cons, have plenty of space and the kitchen is very well stocked with cooking utensils, etc.

Not only that- but our hosts were very helpful and went above and beyond. 5++

The room very clean with pleasant views to water, conveniently situated for cruises and eating areas. The hosts very obliging letting us in room early and taking our luggage to train station was a bonus.

Room Tip: All rooms have water views probably higher would have better views but we were on ground floor which...

This was actually possibly our favorite place we stayed as far as motels/hotels on our entire trek through New Zealand.

So first, the views. The name of the place says it all, and to my knowledge, every room has a view of the water about as spectacular as ours. That said, we were on the top floor, and while it's a walk to get up there, the views were great.

Next, the owners. Very fun and personable and all together helpful. The motel had these night little touches in the rooms, it felt like home at times, and you can tell that's a tip of the way the owners operate. We really enjoyed chatting with them and everything they did to make the experience great.

Finally, advice. Food, as you may now realize, is EXPENSIVE in New Zealand. There's a great fish and chips take away down the street (I think it's called Kiwi Takeaways). Go there, grab some grub to go (because by now you've stopped at the liquor store on the corner and gotten a nice wine or two) and go back, sit on your balcony, and enjoy the food, drink, and views of Picton!

Room Tip: We loved the top floor. Also suggest getting a bottle of wine and takeaway one night (or two) and si...

We stayed for 2 nights and found the hosts very helpful and friendly. The apartment was spotless and the bed very comfortable. We really appreciated the free wifi and DVDs. The harbour view from the balcony was outstanding and it would have been lovely to sit outside with a wine at night except that the elderly gentleman from the apartment next door was out on the balcony chain smoking. Our one suggestion for improvement would be that the balconies were designated nonsmoking areas.
