“nice amenities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We had a good sized studio with a great view. The room was nicely furnished in a modern style as was the bathroom. Getting up the drive and parking was a little tight but we did have a big (and new) vehicle.
this is the second time we've stayed here. It's ideal for catching the ferry the next day! We'll be back!

Came across form Wellington for a weekend break away from the city and a hectic multi country business trip. Could not have chosen a better motel. Great location, spotlessly clean, soft beds and a very friendly welcome. Will definitely come again a wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to my friends.

If you're going to Picton the Harbour View Motel is the best place to stay. Perfect location with unequalled views. The motel is immaculately clean and rooms are cleaned every day, even on longer stays. The rooms are gorgeous and well equipped with quality furnishings and equipment. The owners are lovely people and are so helpful and welcoming. It is in a great location, close enough to all amenities but still very quiet and restful. This is one of the best places we've ever stayed. Picton its self is a beautiful place. It was winter when we stayed so it was quieter than other times of the year but we still loved it - a super place to chill out. Thanks Kim and Ian for a super stay (and for the fish and daily chocolates!) - you made our trip to the other side of the globe well worth while.

Room Tip: All rooms are exactly as stated with good harbour views. The beds are comfortable and there is a sof...

From the warm inviting welcome (literally - our host made sure our room was toasty for our arrival) to the spotless room, beautiful view and small touches like decent size coffee mugs!
The owners were just lovely and accommodating right from initial contact till I made touch just prior. They made sure the 5 of us had a room next to each other and with adjoining deck felt like we stayed together. Thoroughly deserves its top ranking - a real home away from home. If you don't stay here next time you're in Picton, you're missing out. I could go on all day! THANKS HEAPS!

Great value for money, fantastic views and a short walk to everything.
Really enjoyed our stay last weekend and appreciated the assistance provided with our vehicle(s).
Would highly recommend Harbour View motel.

Lovely - clean, comfortable and spacious unit with great view over harbour. Heating was excellent and hosts very helpful with activities we were interested in. This is our second stay and certainly will be staying there again when next in Picton,

Room Tip: Best motel in Picton.

We had 3 nights here and was the perfect accommodation ideally located with spectacular views. We got upgraded with the room large and well appointed - electric blanket, full TV channels, chocolates :) and a courtesy pick up from the ferry terminal. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
