Picton Yacht Club Hotel
Ranked #9 of 17 Hotels in Picton
Reviewed 7 July 2017

One night stay. Friendly reception staff at checkin. Clean, large rooms. Appearance of rooms, hallways and general areas poor. Hotel appears to have some work done but still is generally poor in its general appearance. Around two to three star at most. Mini bar is virtually empty. Dining room is functional but has no atmosphere. The views from rooms and the hotel in general are great but the hotel itself is basic.

Room Tip: Sea / Harbour views recommended.

I am a sales rep travelling NZ 28 days a month. I only write reviews for great places
I also have RA. Great shower great bed and warm are my needs.

TUSHAR The duty manager is what took me from 3 to 5 stars. What a star he is ! He was manager assisting me to my room with bags . Polite is an understatement.
He was my waiter at dinner , bar server
Cashier. He is everything! Lovely man!!
Thankyou Tushar!!
The room

Spacious big bed. My only let down
It was so uncomfortable 2 singles pushed together with a hump in middle and no electric blankets. This is my only complaint
Big room, I had my own balcony overlooking the heated pool and harbour.
Good panel heater on wall.
The bathroom
Outstanding shower I had 2 in 8 hrs because I can, rainhead hot good pressure
Proper shampoos in own containers.

Restaurant
I had the sourdough bread with olive oil and the lamb shank beautifully prepared.
I could not eat it all, well done Chef.

I overheard Tushar talking about wine with another guest , He knows his stuff.

New bed better lighting and electric blankets and this hotel is perfect
However for $110 it was worth every cent
I will be back, I'll call first make sure Tushar is there!!!!!

My wife and I spent a night at the Picton Yacht Club Hotel after a business meeting and having never been in here before. We are very glad we did!
As long serving industry professionals, we expect the basics to be done well and that is exactly what you can expect here. Super friendly reception staff as well as outstanding restaurant staff, along with the lovely big, clean rooms - made this a memorable stay for all the right reasons.
The hotel is set over 3 levels with ocean views available from the 2 upper levels. Our view had us looking straight down the stunning Marlborough Sounds.
Sure there is some cosmetic work in progress to be completed but you can see that this work is in hand and underway.
Congratulations to Trish (GM) and her team for a wonderful experience. This is a property I will definitely be recommending!

If she says to you "Did the earth move for you too?" it is probably because there was a tremor or an earthquake. Don't worry they have them all the time. But Picton and the Yacht Club Hotel are worth it. Rooms spacious, bit like a motel room in design and the view from (I think) all the rooms is wonderful. There is a dinky little two screen cinema nearby attached to the ocean marina.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the marina and the inter-island ferry.
