We loved our stay here. The owners were delightful, the view from our balcony was amazing, the room was clean and comfortable. It was a short walk into town and to the ferry terminal. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed staying at the Harbour View Motel. The managers were friendly and very accommodating. Our room (#10) was at the top and had an incredible view and a nice balcony with chairs and table overlooking the harbour. The location was great for walking into town for dinner, shopping or taking our boat to Marlborough Sound--everything not more than...

This is a small motel located five minutes away from the ferry terminal. Diane picked us up at the ferry terminal and showed us to a studio room with a great view of the Harbor and surrounding mountains. The room was very nice, clean and we'll appointmedo with a small kitchenette. It is located very close to downtown shops and...

Friendly front desk set the tone for a nice stay at the Harbour View before attacking the Queen Charlotte Track. Quiet, fine bed and plenty of hot water in the shower. It's a bit of a walk uphill from the ferry but it's worth the view of the harbour, right?

Stayed for 2 nights before taking ferry to North Island. The motel is ideally situated for activities within Picton and only 5 minutes drive to the ferry terminals.

We had a corner studio room in the upper building and appreciated the spacious room with sweeping views and dread breezes. Room was clean and there is a washer and dryer on site for guest use (coin operated). Easy walk to restaurants and trails and ferry Only complaint was the bed sagged and we kept rolling to the middle

Our room was huge, clean and comfortable. The view was amazing. We returned our hire car the evening before our ferrry journey and chose the motel as it is a 10 minute walk from the terminal. However, we did not have to carry our cases to the ferry as the motel owner gave us a lift to the terminal the...

close to action. Spacious, clean. all rooms have view on the harbor and are the same. very nice bathroom. kitchen ustensiles are not user friendly, the pan does not do its proper job, sticky. they have a laundry dry line on the sun, excellent for your bathing suits and towels.

Great motel, clean, friendly and helpful. We were on the first floor, we had requested a harbourview and had an excellent one! Kitchette was very well equipped with everything needed to make breakfast, lunch or an evening meal. Just a short walk to the centre of Picton.

Thank DerekRhodes
